An African-American passenger on board a US Airways flight was escorted off the plane by health officials, after joking about just coming from Africa and having Ebola.

Other passengers who were on the aircraft which took off from Philadelphia and landed in the Dominican Republic, said the man had sneezed right before making the statement, TMZ reports.

Flight attendants immediately reported the man’s actions, and he was promptly escorted off the plane by ebola gear-clad health officials.

As he walks down the aisle of the aircraft, he can be heard saying, “I ain’t from Africa sh*t!” while passengers take pictures and record video footage from their mobile phones:

      I’m sure she didnt mean it that way. Monkey is used in Naija as frequently as idiot or stupid. Pronounced Mon-KEY

    Ebola is not something to be joked around with. I’m glad US authorities are employing a no nonsense approach to containing it. I hope lessons are being learned.

    The fear of Ebola is the beginning of wisdom.

    What a silly somebody! Hiss. I wonder why it is so easy to make jokes about ebola, but then when it comes to cancer, it’s a different story. Shouldn’t we be sympathetic about both? *sigh*

    He should be put on the no-fly list. Idiot. “I ain’t from Africa. S**t” indeed. And so what? Is Dr Kent Brantly from Africa? Idiot.They are the first to use magnifying glasses to pull out discrimination and call Jesse Jackson, yet a lot of them make ignorant remarks about Africa every day.
    But those health officials though…they covered themselves from head to toe and then left their hands bare?

    Of course he’s not from Africa, thank God. We don’t need people like him.
