The chief executive officer of Ryanair claims “bombers” will “generally be of a Muslim persuasion”, when it comes to Airport security.
“Who are the bombers? They are going to be single males travelling on their own… If you are travelling with a family of kids, on you go; the chances you are going to blow them all up is zero.” said Michael O’Leary, CEO of Ryanair said in an interview with Times published on Saturday
“You can’t say stuff, because it’s racism, but it will generally be males of a Muslim persuasion. Thirty years ago it was the Irish…”If that is where the threat is coming from, deal with the threat.” he added.
His remarks sparked some outrage in Social media, some calling to boycott the one the world’s largest airline, Ryanair.
