56-year-old flight attendant, Rose Hamid was sitting in the stands directly behind Trump and stood when the Republican candidate accused Syrian refugees fleeing the war in Syria were affiliated with ISIS, according to CNN.

Trump had earlier stirred up controversy for suggesting a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States. Even though Hamid didn’t utter a word, supporters of Trump began to chant his name. Trump campaign staff had instructed security to escort any protestors.As she was being escorted, one person shouted, “You have a bomb, you have a bomb,” Hamid told CNN. “The ugliness really came out fast and that’s really scary,” she added.

Major Steven Thompson of the Rock Hill Police Department also spoke to CNN and said, “The campaign told him beforehand that anybody who made any kind of disturbance should be escorted out”.

Meanwhile, the Trump campaign have made no comment on the incident.
