Pro Green angers passengers by 'refusing' to wear a mask on flight
EXCLUSIVE ‘He was the only one not wearing protection’: Professor Green angers passengers by ‘refusing’ to wear a mask on flight from Amsterdam to London with his girlfriend
Professor Green angered passengers on a flight from Amsterdam to London by ‘refusing’ to wear a protective face mask.
The rapper, 36, real name Stephen Manderson, flew from Schiphol Airport to Heathrow on Friday morning with his actress girlfriend Karima McAdams, 35, but their lack of facial protection unnerved other passengers.
In exclusive photos obtained by MailOnline, Pro Green can be seen without a mask while three other travellers in shot covered their faces.
‘It’s concerning’: Professor Green angered passengers on a flight from Amsterdam to London by ‘refusing’ to wear a protective face mask while other travellers took proper precautions
A source told MailOnline: ‘Pro Green flew from Amsterdam to London today at 9:15am.
‘It’s not easy to social distance on a busy flight but he went one step further by not wearing a protective face mask.
‘Pro and his girlfriend were the only people on board not wearing a cover up, which angered those around them especially after everyone else had taken the proper precautions.
‘It’s concerning that not all people are abiding by the rules when wearing a mask should be mandatory throughout all stages of travel.’

A spokesman for Pro Green told MailOnline: ‘Pro was repatriated yesterday from Morocco with the help of the British and Dutch ambassadors.
‘He was wearing a mask throughout the flight apart from when he was eating a Hobnob biscuit.’
Pro’s girlfriend Karima, who goes by the nickname Kiki, explained the musician had ‘followed’ her to Morocco where she had been caring for her father.
In an Instagram post shared on Sunday, she said: ‘This little light of mine followed me to Morocco on my quest to look after my father in the beginning of our uncertain times.
‘Today we find ourselves almost 2.5 months in, roughly 2 months longer than we had ever expected and on top of that throw in an entire month of living/sneaking about under my father’s roof in an almighty Ramadan for good measure.’

Flight attendants working onboard the KLM airline on Friday were also seen wearing protective masks alongside their blue uniforms.
Guidelines published by The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) say all travellers are expected to take precautions such as wearing masks and washing their hands while flying.
In the 28-page document EASA advises passengers to employ ‘appropriate use of face masks,’ to limit contact with cabin surfaces and minimise use of on-board services – all to control the spread of Covid-19.
Airlines such as Ryanair have implemented the use of ‘mandatory face masks at all times’ to keep flyers safe throughout their travels.
