Star of the popular TV series "Yellowstone," Forrie J. Smith, found himself in the midst of some controversy during a recent flight when he allegedly got booted  off for refusing to sit next to a passenger wearing a mask.

The tale has its twists and turns, with Smith initially  asserting he was kicked off the flight due to intoxication. However, he later disclosed via an Instagram video that his reluctance stemmed from not wanting to be seated next to someone wearing a mask, which, according to him, made him feel "uncomfortable."

Personally, I lean toward the narrative suggesting his ejection was alcohol-related. Smith was apparently so out of it, staff had to remind him of which airport he was at. So it's pretty clear he wasn't all there.

From TMZ:

The "Yellowstone" star shared a video to Instagram where he says he's just been removed from a plane after telling someone -- unclear exactly who, but presumably flight attendants or others in positions of authority on the craft -- he didn't want to sit next to someone wearing a mask.

Smith -- who has to be reminded what airport he's at -- says they kicked him off the aircraft claiming he was drunk, but he asserts he's only had a few drinks and absolutely isn't drunk.

Forrie then calls out an unknown, unnamed group of people for not standing up and calling out all the "bulls***" surrounding wearing a mask ... and reiterates the mask on the other passenger's face made him uncomfortable.

Forrie -- best known for playing Lloyd Pierce on 45 episodes of the hit show "Yellowstone" -- captioned the video, "You need to hear this story" ... and, it's raising a bunch of eyebrows online.

There are a lot of people in the comments asking Smith why he cared if someone else on the plane was wearing a mask ... with many adding personal anecdotes about why they'd wear a mask while traveling.
