A passenger was booted from his flight out of La Guardia Airport on Tuesday after the holiday greeting “Merry Christmas” caused him to have a meltdown.

“Don’t say, ‘Merry Christmas!’ ” the man said while boarding his flight, The New York Post reported Wednesday. When the flight attendant for American Airlines Flight 1140 asked him what he would prefer, he replied, “Don’t say, ‘Merry Christmas!’ “

The man then encountered another flight attendant who wished him a “Merry Christmas,” at which point his rage required removal from the aircraft, The Post reported.

American Airlines did not return the New York Post’s request for comment, and the newspaper did not identify the man.
