Ryanair passenger accused of tirade apologizes, says ‘I’m not a racist person’

A passenger accused of going off on a racist tirade during a Ryanair flight is apologizing, according to an interview with ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” Friday.

The incident went viral after a video was uploaded to social media showing a man hurling racist insults at an elderly black woman sitting in the same row and demanding she move seats onboard a flight from Barcelona to London.

The budget airline, which did not force the man off the fight following the incident, tweeted Sunday that it had seen the footage and reported the incident to police.

During the interview, the passenger, David Mesher, directed an apology to the woman he insulted, saying, “I apologize for all the distress you’ve had there and since.”
