Frontier Airlines is facing backlash on the Internet for suspending flight attendants who were filmed duct-taping an out-of-control passenger.

On Tuesday video emerged of a 22-year-old man being duct-taped to a seat on a Frontier Airlines flight after he allegedly punched a male flight attendant and inappropriately touched two female flight attendants.

An Ohio man is accused of assaulting a male flight attendant and inappropriately touching two female flight attendants on the July 31 flight.

The police report said he had two drinks while on the flight and ordered another drink.

The report said he brushed an empty cup against the backside of a flight attendant.

He then spilled his new drink on his shirt, went to the bathroom and came out shirtless, the report said. A flight attendant helped him get another shirt from his carry-on.

After walking around for 15 minutes, the report said, the man then groped the chests of female flight attendants.

Police said he then punched a male flight attendant in the face who had been called over to watch him.

Frontier Airlines released a statement in which they revealed the flight attendants seen in the video were “relieved of flying pending an investigation.”

“During a flight from Philadelphia to Miami on July 31, a passenger made inappropriate physical contact with a flight attendant and subsequently physically assaulted another flight attendant. As a result, the passenger needed to be restrained until the flight landed in Miami and law enforcement arrived. The flight attendants will be, as required in such circumstances, relieved of flying pending completion of investigation of the events.”

People were not happy the flight attendants were suspended considering they felt duct-taping the man was justified due to his behavior on the flight.
