Another day, another person throws a fit in an airplane; what else is new?
Three days ago, a user named @starcadedearcade uploaded a video on TikTok of a rowdy passenger getting mad at a flight attendant. The plane was from United Airlines, scheduled to take off to Los Angeles. The passenger was told to hang up their phone and was told repeatedly 4 times to put on their mask, after which the passenger threw a fit. The passenger begins by saying, “Take me off, I don’t even want to go to Cali.”
The passenger then gets more upset and starts to threaten the flight attendant himself. While still in his seat, the angry passenger follows up by saying, “I will find your name, date of birth, and address. I’ll know your social security number before I get off this plane.”
Afterwards, the passenger began to shove other passengers in the way to get to the walking aisle. He then begins to move his way up the hall towards the flight attendant to confront him. Another passenger tries to intervene and stop the argument, to which the rowdy passenger says, “mind your own business, ‘cause I’ll break your neck.”
While these events were happening, another passenger, by the name of Alexander Clark, was filming all of this unfold. The angry passenger then noticed this, snatched Clark’s phone, and told him to delete the video. Eventually, the police arrive and escort the angry passenger away after saying, “let’s go to jail.”
Many people on TikTok began commenting, either jokingly or seriously. One said that “these are FEDERAL charges, when they get spicy on a plane.” Another jokingly said (with some truth), “Welcome to the no-fly list.” But this isn’t the first time a passenger got confrontational on an airplane because of the mask mandate.
A passenger at Southwest Airlines was told to put on a mask on the airplane. This angry passenger then got physical and punched the flight attendant knocking out two of her teeth. The angry passenger received two charges of assault resulting in severe injuries and intervening with the flight crew.
What do you guys think of the incident? What would you do in that situation? Do you think the passenger was just having a bad day? Or was he really just being a mask-hole?
