A former Navy SEAL who claims he killed Osama bin Laden has been banned by Delta Airlines for refusing to wear a facemask.

Earlier this week, Robert O’Neill tweeted out a maskless selfie from aboard Delta flight, before deleting it.

O’Neill later said he’d been banned by the airline, tweeting “Thank God it wasn’t @Delta flying us in when we killed bin Laden… we weren’t wearing masks…”

O’Neill claimed in 2014 that he shot bin Laden during the Navy SEAL raid that captured and killed the terrorist leader – a claim that other SEALs have disputed.

Delta says wearing a mask is “part of every customer’s commitment prior to traveling on Delta”.
