“Shut That N***** Baby Up”: Man Pleads Guilty To Slapping Toddler On Plane

A 61-year-old former executive pleaded guilty this week to slapping a crying toddler on a plane.

Joe Rickey Hundley, of Hayden, Idaho, smacked the 1-year-old son of Jessica Bennett, 33, in February during a flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta. He now faces a maximum of one year in prison and a $100,000 fine, according to The Smoking Gun.

Bennett told authorities that her son was crying because of the altitude change, and Hundley “told her to shut that (N-word) baby up,” FBI agents told the Associated Press. He then slapped the child in the face, which certainly didn’t make the boy stop crying.

Bennett noted that Hundley “reeked of alcohol” and said she couldn’t believe he directed a racial slur towards her child. When she asked him “What did you say?” she says he “fell onto my my face and his mouth was in my ear and he said it again, but even more hateful.”

    The pilot would have been so terrified he would have landed the plane on a cloud! I would have beat the brakes off his A$$ (old and drunk I don’t care) if that had been my child!

      He must have been traveling alone because I can’t see relaltives and friends not intervening if not for just fear of getting their A$$ whooped too. I just can’t get over his bolder than bold A$$!

    As a mother, I think that head line would have read something like, “Mother of black child, who was slapped by old white man, sentenced to life for manslaughter…..”. I’ll be damned if you hit my child and I don’t try and take your head and hands off….

    I’m sorry I laughed

    Is it wrong that I would have punched him in the face if for no other reason than the fact that he put his hands on my child?

    • sha

      Not at all. Do not for the life of me understand how that did not happen. I would have quickly scanned for the next female I could hand my child off to and then the %itch slapping would have commenced immediatley after. Guess we might need therapy Lilly, but there is no way I would not have layed hands on pops!!!

    I am betting he serves no time in prison for his crime of slapping an innocent which could be considered a hate crime but we shall see. I hope mother and child are doing well.
