Woman with cystic fibrosis claims EasyJet employee ‘discriminated’ against her over medical bag

One woman says she’ll never fly with EasyJet again after an employee reportedly “discriminated” against her over her medical bag containing medication and equipment for her cystic fibrosis treatment.

Reps for the carrier have since told Fox News that they have apologized to the woman for the upsetting ordeal and are now investigating the incident.

On Aug. 5, Janeil Jaggers Whitworth was traveling from Prague to Venice on EasyJet flight EUJ3382 when a male employee with the airline questioned why she was trying to board the flight with two pieces of luggage — a personal backpack and Hillrom Vest bag with medication for cystic fibrosis treatment, she wrote on Facebook.

EASYJET SAYS VIRAL PHOTO OF PASSENGER SITTING IN ‘BACKLESS’ SEAT IS NOT WHAT IT APPEARS

“The gentleman told me one bag would have to fit in another (which wasn’t possible), so that I only had one bag. I explained again this was medical equipment and medication and needed to be on board with me,” the woman wrote online. “He responded that if I had two bags, I would have to pay for the extra bag.”

Whitworth said she showed the EasyJet employee the carrier’s medical information policy on her cellphone, which details that passengers are allowed to travel with necessary personal medical equipment.

Nevertheless, Whitworth claims the man “dismissed” her and insisted she needed to purchase another bag, rejecting the offer to see her doctor’s note. Whitworth said she then realized the man “assumed I wasn’t being honest with him.”

“At this point, I told him it can’t be checked because if my Vest bag was lost, I would quickly end up in the hospital,” she went on.

Eventually, the EasyJet worker allowed her to board the plane without charging her a bag fee, but sent Whitworth’s backpack into hold under the plane. Ultimately, she was allowed to board with her medical bag.

After finally finding her seat on the plane, one of Whitworth’s companions pointed out that the EasyJet employee perhaps didn’t believe her “because I don’t look stereotypically sick. I look young and healthy,” the woman wrote online.

“I have an ‘invisible illness.’ I have 56% lung function and cystic fibrosis related diabetes,” Whitworth continued. “I take over 60 pills a day easily and spend 2-plus hours completing airway clearance a day, every single day.”

“This employee was 100 percent discriminating against me because on the outside I don’t look like someone who needs an entire carry on packed with medications or devices and he demanded I pay extra to check a bag that contains medications and equipment I need on a daily basis,” she said. “He was charging me extra to fly with Easyjet strictly because I am sick. That’s ILLEGAL.”

“It doesn’t feel good for someone to demand you be treated unfairly because you are sick or have a disability. It’s unacceptable that this Easyjet employee wouldn’t know the company policy pertaining to medical bags, refused to see proof that I was being honest, and made assumptions and judgements based on my physical appearance,” Whitworth concluded. “It’s wrong and I won’t be giving my business to them again.”

When contacted for comment, a spokesperson for EasyJet told Fox News they are aware how important it is for customers traveling with medical equipment to be able to keep it, which is why they allow customers to carry medical equipment in the cabin free of charge when accompanied by a medical certificate.

“We have contacted Ms. Whitworth to apologize for her experience at Prague airport as she was incorrectly asked to check in her handbag into the hold,” they continued. “This is not in line with our policy and so we are investigating this with our ground handling agents.”

“The wellbeing of our customers and crew is our highest priority,” the official finished.

As per the carrier’s medical information policy, passengers who need to travel with “a large piece of equipment or a large number of supplies” are advised to contact the airline in advance to coordinate accommodations. It is also requested that passengers bring a doctor’s note for any medication.

New York Mets introduce late-season acquisition: Jeff McNeil’s puppy

Westlake Legal Group MLB-Jeff-McNeil New York Mets introduce late-season acquisition: Jeff McNeil's puppy Ryan Gaydos fox-news/sports/mlb/new-york-mets fox-news/sports/mlb fox news fnc/sports fnc article 147b727b-5cd8-5c90-9083-7afad0290d12

The New York Mets on Tuesday held a press conference for the newest addition to the team: Jeff McNeil’s puppy.

No, it can’t pitch out of the bullpen.

McNeil, and his wife Tatiana, adopted the puppy from the New York-based North Shore Animal League and named it Willow – the name of the street on which the two married, according to the New York Daily News.

MIAMI MARLINS’ ISAN DIAZ HITS FIRST CAREER HOME RUN WHILE FATHER IS INTERVIEWED ON TV

“When I met the puppy for the first time, I fell in love with her,” the All-Star told reporters. “I was on the phone with my wife, begging for it and I ended up hitting a home run that night. I persuaded her and said, ‘If I get the puppy, I hit more home runs.’ I think it works. I’m really happy.”

McNeil, who hit seven home runs in 76 games in the season’s first half, has smashed seven already in 24 second-half games, including home runs in three games straight and three home runs in his last five games.

The North Shore Animal League said McNeil is the first Mets player to adopt a puppy from them.

“We did it as like a feel-good moment,” Kathleen Lynn, the director of communications for the Animal League, told the New York Post. Of course, you always hope that somebody will adopt, and as we always say, every time you adopt, you save two lives. The one you take home and the one you can rescue and put in its place. So we thank Jeff and Tatiana so much.”

BLUE JAYS TO EXTEND PROTECTIVE NETTING FOR 2020 SEASON

It may be a pure coincidence, but since McNeil adopted the puppy the Mets have won 10 of their last 11 games and have gotten back in playoff contention.

“We’re playing good baseball right now. Just a coincidence that we happen to get the puppy and go on a nice little winning streak,” he said.

McNeil finished 2-for-3 against the Miami Marlins on Tuesday, extending the Mets’ win streak to five games.

The Mets are now 58-56 and sit just 1.5 games out of the final National League Wild Card spot. They’re 8.5 games behind the first-place Atlanta Braves in the National League East.

Oakland Raiders’ Antonio Brown may be suffering from frostbitten feet

Oakland Raiders star Antonio Brown may need some more time to warm up. At least his feet might.

NBC Sports broadcaster Chris Simms said Tuesday, citing someone close to the situation, that photos of Brown’s feet that were posted to social media did not actually reveal blisters but the presence of frostbite, sustained from using a cryotherapy machine without the proper foot protection.

OAKLAND RAIDERS’ ANTONIO BROWN SHARES GRUESOME PHOTOS OF ‘BLISTERED’ FEET

Cryogenic therapy is used by athletes as a recovery method. A person using the method stands in a chamber for around three minutes as temperatures drop to minus-166 degrees Fahrenheit.

Photos of Brown’s feet appeared to show some of the skin ripping off. Brown has missed several days of training camp with a foot issue.

REDSKINS TO OFFER GAMBLING-FOCUSED PRESEASON TELECAST

The wide receiver’s feet were mentioned on the first episode of HBO’s “Hard Knocks.” However, a reason for why his feet look the way they do was not mentioned.

At one point, Brown is seen working out with his trainer, who had told him to tone it down because of his feet issues. Brown wasn’t having any of it.

“I’ve got a lot of people around me that are depending on me to perform,” Brown said. “This is my livelihood, being on my feet, being able to cut. They don’t want to hear any excuse. I’m new to the team. I’m just like everyone else, fighting to make the team. So take a couple of days to get right. But fired up to show Raider Nation what I’m about.”

It’s unclear when Brown will be able to practice.

Baltimore Orioles outfielder DJ Stewart suffered a concussion during a bizarre mishap Tuesday while the team was playing against the New York Yankees.

Stewart was in left field trying to make a play on a fly ball hit by Mike Ford. Stewart was charging the ball and dove a bit too early and, as he was lying on the field, the baseball hit him in the head.

PEDRO MARTINEZ SAYS 2009 PHILLIES TEAM WAS BATTLING SWINE FLU DURING WORLD SERIES

He was subsequently removed from the game in the next half-inning and manager Brandon Hyde told reporters after the game that he had suffered a concussion and was placed on the seven-day concussion injured list, according to MLB.com.

“It definitely took longer than I expected. I didn’t think I’d be out that long at all,” Stewart told reporters. “I’m going to go out there and show what I can do.”

Stewart has played in eight games for Baltimore this season. He was hitting .160 with a .352 OPS in 26 plate appearances. It’s his second season with the Orioles.

To add insult to injury, the Orioles lost the game 9-4. Baltimore has lost 12-of-14 against New York this season.

Carl Lewis says Trump is a ‘racist’ and ‘misogynistic’

Olympic champion Carl Lewis took the opportunity Monday in Peru to label President Trump a “racist” and “misogynistic” while at the Pan American Games.

Lewis, a nine-time Olympic gold medalist who will present the 100-meter and long jump medals at the Pan American Games in Lima, said Americans have a huge challenge.

SEMENYA WON’T DEFEND 800 WORLD TITLE AFTER COURT SETBACK

“There are a lot of issues going on,” Lewis said. “We have a racist president, who is prejudiced, and misogynistic, who doesn’t value anyone outside of himself. … But that doesn’t mean we can’t fight for what is right for people, and look at others where they may have missed an opportunity or may have been marginalized in their lifetime.”

Lewis made the comments on Trump while also speaking about fair and equal pay for female athletes amid the U.S. women’s soccer team’s gender discrimination lawsuit against the U.S. Soccer Federation.

“The reality is that there’s a lot of prejudice, and a lot of prejudice is fear,” Lewis said. “We’re afraid to give the same opportunity because it gives us a leg up … the reality is that it’s no different than another athlete on another team. So, yes, I support that.”

Lewis won gold medals in the 1984 Summer Games in Los Angeles, the 1988 Summer Games in Seoul, the 1992 Summer Games in Barcelona and the 1996 Summer Games in Atlanta.

Dan Gainor: The New York Times changes its headline, caves to the mob and shows it has lost its mind

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6068754994001_6068753220001-vs Dan Gainor: The New York Times changes its headline, caves to the mob and shows it has lost its mind fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/opinion fox-news/media fox news fnc/opinion fnc e5351fc3-66a4-5fcf-8f02-46ac5718624a Dan Gainor article

It’s rough being the second-most liberal newspaper in the U.S. Mistakenly cover a news story with an accurate “head” and the left is calling for yours.

The headline was simple — five controversial words that went global almost as soon as they hit Twitter. 538’s Editor-in-Chief Nate Silver deadpanned over a copy of the front page: “Tomorrow’s NYT print edition. Not sure ‘TRUMP URGES UNITY VS. RACISM’ is how I would have framed the story.”

Liberals couldn’t make heads or tails of it, so they went insane. Democratic presidential candidates lined up to whine that The Times wasn’t as reliably left-wing as they demanded.

HEMINGWAY: NEW YORK TIMES’ TRUMP HEADLINE CHANGE ‘SCARY’ INSTANCE OF BULLYING BY ONLINE ‘MOB’

Several retweeted Silver’s post with comments of their own. 2020 presidential candidate and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke called it, “Unbelievable.” New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand turned news reporter, claiming, “That’s not what happened.” And New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker chose institutional begging: “Lives literally depend on you doing better, NYT. Please do.”

Naturally, wherever liberals make demands, you can always find New York “Democratic Socialist” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She flat out accused the paper of assisting evil white people. “Let this front page serve as a reminder of how white supremacy is aided by – and often relies upon – the cowardice of mainstream institutions.”

Liberals couldn’t believe their eyes. New York’s Resistance HQ had gone over to the enemy — neutral journalism. That had to be stopped.

The Nation’s National Correspondent Joan Walsh said she actually, “canceled my subscription.” She refused to “keep rewarding such awful news judgment.”

Others echoed that bizarre sentiment on Twitter. Shareblue Senior Writer Oliver WIllis took the subtle approach, claiming, “the new york times wants us dead.”

Only it wasn’t just political liberals. The explosion of anger came right from the body of liberals employed at The Times. New York Magazine/HuffPost Contributor Yashar Ali tweeted that “I have never received more texts from furious NYT reporters/writers than I have tonight.” He said they “feel like their hard work is being sullied by a horrible headline.” They blamed the paper’s head — Executive Editor Dean Baquet.

He apologized, of course, because in the major media today, your reporters must be in the ranks of the Unsullied. You can’t even pretend neutrality. Baquet told The Daily Beast, “It was written on deadline and when it was passed along for approval we all saw it was a bad headline and changed it pretty quickly.”

Remember, Baquet offended the left recently by saying there were outlets too liberal for his preciously neutral journos. He said no to partisan shows like those run by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell and CNN’s Don Lemon. So Baquet didn’t dare challenge the left this time.

He fell on his sword.

Times staff even wrote a story about their failure, headlined, “A Times Headline About Trump Stoked Anger. A Top Editor Explains.” Can’t offend your far-left audience and your far-left staff.

More from Opinion

The paper had tried to head off the controversy. Times Print Editor Tom Jolly posted a replacement, second-edition headline exactly 59 minutes after the original. “Assailing Hate But Not Guns.” The liberal mob was not mollified.

That was obvious in the pathetic journalism think pieces that followed. Politico wrote how angry Democrats are about media coverage. You read that right. Democrats who control nearly every aspect of traditional media narrative are complaining their team isn’t giving 110 percent. It’s like a baseball coach who is winning 100-1 launching into an insane tirade because it’s not a shutout.

Politico quoted whimpering “Pod Save America” Co-host Dan Pfeiffer, who served as an Obama adviser. “A vast swath of Democratic voters are pretty angry at the media,” he argued. Pfeiffer went on to ridiculously pretend media treat Trump like they are “too afraid to call him a racist or a liar.”

Jack Shafer, Politico’s senior media writer, added a tiny bit of normalcy to the debate. He revealed the unhinged leftist strategy, noting it had “more to do with the political validation that liberals and lefties have come to demand from the news media they consume.”

Members of the Resistance “want every column-inch of copy in the Times to reinforce and amplify their resistance values, right down to the headlines,” he wrote. Then he went off track, claiming “the paper completely rejects” the demands of the hardcore left.

Only it didn’t. It caved as soon as liberal readers and liberal staffers yowled together in anger. And that’s where journalism is in 2019. With 15 months left until a presidential election, one of the nation’s premier publications surrendered to the mob.

Over a headline.

I’ve been saying the entire Trump presidency that news coverage will keep getting worse. This episode is a reminder that normal rules are gone. Most journalists are part of the political movement trying to unseat the president.

Ohio shooting victim called father of kids before she died: ‘Babe I just got shot in my head’

A mother who was killed in the Dayton, Ohio, mass shooting during the weekend used her final moments to reach out to her children and their father to let them know she loved them.

Lois Oglesby, 27, was one of nine people fatally shot when a gunman opened fire outside Ned Peppers Bar in the city’s Oregon District early Sunday — hours after another gunman, in El Paso, Texas, also opened fire, leaving at least 22 people dead.

OHIO SHOOTING VICTIMS INCLUDE GUNMAN’S SISTER, MOTHER OF TWO WHO WAS A NURSING STUDENT

A nursing student who had just returned from maternity leave and worked at a daycare center, Oglesby called the father of her children as the massacre unfolded, letting him know she’d been shot.

“She FaceTimed Me And Said ‘Babe I Just Got Shot In My Head, I Need To Get To My Kids,'” Daryl “Dee” Lee” wrote on Facebook about Oglesby.

Lee said since her death, he hasn’t been able to stop crying.

“Like That’s Strong As F— To Hold Off To Call Me!! She Was Letting Me Know She Loved Me And To Take Care Of These Kids And I Got You Babe!!!!!!” he wrote.

REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN REPRESENTING DAYSON SAYS HE SUPPORTS ASSAULT WEAPON BAN

Oglesby’s friend, Derasha Merrett, described the victim to the Dayton Daily News as “a wonderful mother, a wonderful person” who aspired to work with children.

“We grew up as cousins,” Merrett said. “We grew up in the same church, on the same drill team. She works at my kids’ daycare. We all grew up in this little town. We’re all family. We’re all hurting behind this.”

She leaves behind an infant and an older daughter, according to her friend.

Authorities identified the gunman as Connor Betts, 24. Investigators have not offered a motive as to the Sunday slaughter.

Auger-Aliassime wins, Kyrgios falls at Rogers Cup

Teenager Felix Auger-Aliassime outlasted countryman Vasek Pospisil on Tuesday in the first round of the Rogers Cup to set up another all-Canadian matchup with Milos Raonic.

In the evening session, Britain’s Kyle Edmund picked up a rain-delayed 6-3, 6-4 victory over Australia’s Nick Kyrgios, who won last week in Washington.

Auger-Aliassime, a Montreal native ranked 21st in the world, won 6-2, 6-7 (3), 7-6 (3) before an adoring crowd at IGA Stadium in the ATP Tour Masters 1000 series event. He will face the 19th-ranked Raonic, who beat France’s Lucas Pouille on Monday, on Wednesday.

Auger-Aliassime has reached three ATP finals in the past six months but is still seeking his first title.

In other action Tuesday, 2014 U.S. Open champion Marin Cilic advanced with a 6-3, 7-6 (6) victory over qualifier Bradley Klahn of the U.S. Seeded 14th in Montreal, Cilic made the quarterfinals at last year’s Rogers Cup in Toronto before falling to eventual champion Rafael Nadal.

No. 11 seed Borna Coric of Croatia downed Germany’s Peter Gojowczyk 2-6, 6-1, 7-6 (2); while John Isner of the U.S., the No. 12 seed, also moved on with a 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (6) win over Australia’s Jordan Thompson.

Germany’s Alexander Zverev, the third seed and 2017 Rogers Cup champion in Montreal, beat Britain’s Cameron Norrie 7-6 (4), 6-4 in a late match.

Nadal, the world No. 2 and top seed at this edition of the tournament, is the clear favorite with Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer skipping the event.

After getting a bye, the Spaniard opens Wednesday in the second round against qualifier Daniel Evans of Britain.
