United Airlines drag queen CEO accused of mocking religious exemptions to Covid vax

Kirby reportedly even went so far as to suggest that religiously exempt employees should have to wear a special symbol on their badges.


It has been revealed that United Airlines' Draq Queen CEO Scott Kirby allegedly mocked those seeking religious exemptions from the company's strict Covid-19 vaccine mandate, and proposed treating those who had been granted special accommodation differently than those who got the jab. 

Kirby reportedly even went so far as to suggest that religiously exempt employees should have to wear a special symbol on their badges, however that idea was struck down by United's lawyers.

Kirby is well-known for his tendencies to dress up as a drag queen, as well as his huge push for racial and gender quotas in the airline industry.

According to documents filed this weekend as part of a larger lawsuit against the airline, from the outset of the airline's mandate, Kirby "threatened employees to 'be very careful about' requesting such accommodations because 'very few' people would 'get through the medical and religious exemption process'." 

Kirby was accused of having "derisively described such employees as 'all [of a] sudden decid[ing] I'm really religious." 

"Making his plans clear," the document added, "Kirby warned that anyone who applied for an accommodation was 'putting [their] job on the line'." 

United allegedly required higher-ups to "call out" the "high bar" for accommodation requests since it was a "Scott-level initiative" made "consciously knowing that [it] would upset some people." 

The document claimed that at one point Kirby proposed "requiring accommodated employees to walk around with special stickers on their badges broadcasting their vaccination status," but that, "unsurprisingly, United's lawyers shot down this idea," noting that it would "create conflict" among the workforce.  

"Some HR employees were taken aback by Mr. Kirby's proposal," it continued, "stating that putting stickers on unvaccinated employees' badges is 'like the scarlet letter'." 

In Nathaniel Hawthorne's 1850 novel by the same name, an alleged adulteress was forced to wear a scarlet "A" on her dress to let everyone know she had committed a sin worthy of shaming. 

As Breitbart reports, one union president deemed Kirby's actions to be so "over the line" that it constituted a "purge of religious orthodoxy." 

In total, 96 percent of employees complied with the mandates, and 2,300 received exemptions, however, the latter were put on unpaid leave.
