And the award for the world's worst person goes to Joe Rickey Hundley, a man who allegedly slapped a two-year-old boy on a plane and used a racial slur in the process. →

shortformblog:

Joe Rickey Hundley, of Hayden, Idaho, has been charged with simple assault. His attorney said he will plead not guilty.

Bennett, 33, told authorities her son was crying as the Delta Air Lines flight prepared for landing. Hundley, 60, was sitting next to her and slapped the boy in his face, causing a scratch under his right eye, she said.

Hundley “told her to shut that (N-word) baby up,” FBI special agent Daron Cheney said in a sworn statement. “Ms. Bennett received assistance from several people on the plane.”

The mother of the child, Jessica Bennett, says that her son has become apprehensive to strangers in the wake of the incident. Hundley, the president of Unitech Composites and Structures, was suspended by his employer in the wake of the incident, though he denies the allegations against him. The incident took place as the plane landed in Minneapolis.
