Yellowstone Actor Makes Scene on Plane, Says Mask Bothers Him

Veteran actor Forrie J. Smith, known for his role on Paramount+’s hit show Yellowstone, was recently removed from a flight.

The 65-year-old took to social media on Sunday to explain his side of the story. He claimed he was escorted off the plane after refusing to sit next to a passenger wearing a face covering.


“I just got kicked off a plane in…where am I even?” Forrie began, with someone nearby reminding him he was in Houston.

“Houston, Texas, because I told them I wasn’t comfortable sitting next to someone with a mask on,” Forrie continued.

He then admitted to consuming alcohol before filming the video.

“Yes, I’ve been drinking – I’ve been stuck at the airport for three hours, so yes I’m drinking – but I’m not intoxicated,” Forrie said. “They threw me off the plane for being drunk, because people won’t speak up about this nonsense!”

He added, “I simply told them I wasn’t comfortable sitting next to someone who felt the need to wear a mask, and I’m off the plane.”

Forrie didn’t reveal the airline he was flying.

After sharing the video, Forrie received mixed reactions online.


“Grow up! You’re scared of a mask? Get over yourself,” one person commented, while another offered support, saying, “Complete rubbish! Stand strong!”

In other Yellowstone news, the show is undergoing some major cast changes for season five.
