Rob O’Neill might not be a name that everyone recognized immediately but when you tell them what he is known for, everyone recognizes him. Rob is the Navy Seal who is credited with killing Osama Bin Laden back in May of 2011. He hasn’t been in the spotlight much since that night in 2011 but the past 2 days changed that for him. He has been in the headlines twice the past few days and one of them doesn’t look like things are going well for him. Is he experiencing a case of Deja Vu from an incident that happened back in 2016?
According to TMZ, Rob O’Neill, the Navy Seal who killed Osama bin Laden, was thrown off a plane Sunday because airline personnel said he was too drunk to fly.
O’Neill boarded an American Airlines jet in Nashville bound for Dallas. Before the plane took off, flight attendants noticed he was extremely drunk. Eyewitnesses tell TMZ, he called an AA employee a vile name and eventually passed out.
Apparently, he regained consciousness and, when a flight attendant told him he had to get off the plane, we’re told he became belligerent and loud. Cops were called and escorted him off the plane.
We reached out to Rob’s rep … so far no word back.
Before his drunken incident on Sunday, Rob was asked about the night that Seal Team 6 raided Bin Laden’s compound and what helped him get ready for it.
According to TMZ, The U.S. Navy SEAL who’s credited with firing the kill shots on Osama bin Laden says he listened to a banger the night of the raid, and we gotta say … it’s an excellent choice.
We got retired Navy SEAL, Robert O’Neill, heading into the Gaylord National Resort near D.C. Saturday, and asked if he’s had to pay for a drink since taking down the man behind 9/11 … he has, but only by choice.
Our guy then asks Rob if he jammed to any special music that night in May 2011, and he tells us he bumped “Red Nation” by The Game … and he’d love to meet the rapper.
Rob also addresses a popular conspiracy theory about what happened to bin Laden after his death with a definitive answer … check it out.
While getting kick off a plane is embarrassing, let’s give the guy a little grace. O’Neill, has lived a warriors life, with battle scars and difficult memories. Rob won’t be remembered for these silly acts of indiscretion, he will be remembered as the man who put the bullet in the most notorious murderer in American history.
