A birthday cake aboard a JetBlue flight appears to have started an incident that got a New Jersey kicked off their May 3 flight.

Cameron and Minta Burke and their two children were flying to Las Vegas from JFK airport in New York City to visit relatives and brought a birthday cake onto the plane with them.

The Burkes were asked to take the birthday cake out of an overhead bin and put it under the seat in front of them, The Washington Post reported, which they said they did.

From that point, though, a conversation between two flight attendants about the birthday cake took a turn for the worse when Cameron Burke tried to intervene. The second flight attendant told Burke he had been noncompliant and he reportedly asked her if she had been drinking, saying later he had done so “because her behavior was not normal,” the Post reported.

As the confrontation continued, the children became upset and began to cry, video shows.

The entire plane was emptied and the family was eventually removed from the JetBlue gate area after the police were called.

JetBlue later said in a statement “the customers became agitated, cursed and yelled at the crew, and made false accusations about a crewmember’s fitness to fly,” the Post reported.

“The Captain determined the customers’ behavior demonstrated a risk for additional escalation in air and would not allow them to fly.” JetBlue said, People reported.

Cameron Burke says the family plans to sue JetBlue over the incident.

Twitter users were skeptical of just about everyone’s story about the incident.
