The former Navy SEAL who claims he shot Osama Bin Laden in 2011 has joined the growing list of people banned from commercial airlines for not complying with the requirement to wear masks.
Delta Air Lines confirmed to USA TODAY Friday that it banned Robert O’Neill from future flights.
“Part of every customer’s commitment prior to traveling on Delta is the requirement to acknowledge our updated travel policies, which includes wearing a mask,” airline spokesman Anthony Black reiterated in a statement to USA TODAY. “Failure to comply with our mask-wearing mandate can result in losing the ability to fly Delta in the future.”
As of mid-August, Delta had banned more than 130 passengers for not cooperating with the mask requirement.

O’Neill confirmed he’s no longer welcome on Delta flights in a Twitter post Thursday, though he says it was because he posted a now-deleted tweet of him posing maskless in his seat and insinuating that people who wear them are wimps (though his word choice was coarser).
