A Southwest pilot is under internal investigation after allegedly signing off by saying, "Let's go Brandon!" "Who is Brandon and why are people chanting everywhere you go?" If you asked that, you might not know the origin. At a NASCAR series race earlier this year, a reporter claimed that the fans were cheering "Let's Go Brandon," instead of the actual phrase, "F#@k Joe Biden." Since then, "Let's Go Brandon" has been really popular at major sporting events, big venues and the World Series.
The pilot, allegedly, used the phrase on a flight from Houston to Albuquerque, N.M., and that there were audible gasps from passengers. "One Employee's individual perspective should not be interpreted as a viewpoint for Southwest and its collective 54,000 Employees," the airline's statement said.
