Michael O'Leary: Ryanair boss criticised for Muslim profiling comments

Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary has been criticised for saying Muslim men should be profiled at airports because "That is where the threat is coming from". The Muslim Council of Britain said Mr O'Leary's comments were "Racist and discriminatory". One profiling expert previously told the BBC that the benefit of such profiling only outweighs the cost in exceptional circumstances. Mr O'Leary, who has worked for Ryanair for 30 years, also used the interview to lament planning rules requiring the company to provide facilities for disabled staff and referred to obese passengers as "Monsters" who "May need to buy two seats". The BBC has approached Ryanair for a response to the criticism of Mr O'Leary's comments.
