LONG BEACH, Calif. – A Southern California man was booted from a JetBlue flight after getting in a brag-filled, expletive-laden shouting match with other passengers.

Video taken by a fellow passenger named Sara Walter Bear shows the passenger, identified as real estate mogul David Brackett, yelling at another man, “Eat s— and die. I wasn’t f—— talking to you.”

After someone calls Brackett a loser, he fires back, “I’m 28. I make $4 million a year. What do you do?” He could also be heard bragging about his “176 IQ” and “20/20 vision.”

The allegedly drunken spat took place before a flight from Long Beach to Sacramento last Friday.

Brackett, along with two other passengers, were escorted off the plane.

Video of the ugly incident ended up on the Facebook page Rants of a Sassy Stew where it has been commented on and shared hundreds of times.

Brackett apologized Tuesday in an interview with KCBS, saying he “doesn’t feel safe anymore” after receiving hundreds of threatening emails at his job, and thousands of angry comments on the Facebook account that he has since shut down.

Brackett said he suffers from PTSD after a bad motorcycle accident, and “lost it” when he says another passenger joked that a flight attendant, who appeared to be of Middle Eastern descent, was going to detonate a bomb. He says he recorded the disturbing comment but the other passenger took his cellphone.

In the video a flight attendant can be heard saying, “Sit down. Please give him back his phone.”

Brackett also clarified that his actual salary is not nearly $4 million.
