A video started circulating Sunday showing a grown man slapping a child on a bus after reprimanding her for not wearing a mask. It is unclear who the man is.

Turning Point USA Founder Charlie Kirk shared the video to his Instagram. In the caption, he wrote “This has gone way too far.”

In the video, the man is towering over the girl, who appears to be partially masked already. Kirk claims in the title of the video that the girl is only 10-years-old. The man points at her and says: “Hey you both have to wear the mask.”

“Why?” the girl asks.

“Because,” the man responds. Suddenly, he slaps her across the face. Another man is seen sitting just across from the girl, but does nothing when the first assaults the girl.

“Stop! Don’t touch!” the girl yelled.

American and Southwest stand by vaccine mandate, despite Abbott’s ban

American Airlines and Southwest Airlines are still planning to comply with President Biden’s executive order regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. The order requires all their employees to be vaccinated by Dec. 8t. As a result, they will be ignoring Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s ban on vaccine mandates.

Abbott announced his own executive order, effectively banning mandates even from private employers, on Tuesday. “In another instance of federal overreach, the Biden Administration is now bullying many private entities into imposing COVID-19 vaccine mandates, causing workforce disruptions that threaten Texas’ continued recovery from the COVID-19 disaster,” Abbott said. “The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and our best defense against the virus, but should remain voluntary and never forced.”

Yet both airlines are requiring their employees to be vaccinated by Nov. 24. This comes despite Southwest’s impromptu cancellation of over 2,000 flights over the weekend. At the time, the airline blamed the cancellations on air traffic control and weather conditions. However, SaraACarter.com was unable to verify that any other airline had to cancel near as many flights for the same reasons. This has left many to speculate that Southwest actually cancelled flights due to their employees walking out as a direct result of the mandate.

Reporter Jack Posobiec tweeted out a flyer circulating among the anti-vaxx Southwest employees. Currently, they are planning a protest outside of Southwest headquarters next Monday. The protest will be called “Freedom Not Force.”

Southwest told Reuters it “would be expected to comply with the President’s Order to remain compliant as a federal contractor.” In addition, American similarly said Abbott’s order does not change anything.
