An American Airlines passenger boarding a flight at La Guardia on Tuesday was kicked off after he went off on a rant about Christmas. The man reportedly grew agitated at a flight attendant who wished him “Merry Christmas,” saying, “You shouldn’t say that because not everyone celebrates Christmas.”

The guy has got a valid point, but no one in the plane was in the mood for entertaining what followed: On the plane, another member of the crew issued the Christmas Eve greeting, sending the man into what Mediaite describes as a “meltdown.” Crew members weren’t able to placate him, and eventually he was taken off the plane as others cheered.
