A video of a couple on a JetBlue flight going on a fierce rant has gone viral, eliciting some surprising reactions.
A woman and her husband got off on a tangent about racial and homophobic slurs, free speech debates, China (particularly Shanghai), and Elon Musk.
The pair was thrown off the JetBlue flight, according to a video of the incident.
They refused to exit the plane several times until security arrived and deplaned them, prompting the woman to accuse them of discriminating against them because of their political beliefs.
According to the woman, she and her husband were forced off the plane because they voted for Donald Trump.
The couple’s video was uploaded to TikTok and lasted roughly three minutes, with minor cuts.
The video was posted a day ago and has already received over 5.2 million views. It has also been cross-posted on Reddit, spreading the viral video in the hopes that the couple faces consequences for their behavior on the plane.
The unidentified woman appears to conduct the majority of the talking; the video begins with her yelling after being ordered to exit the plane and refusing.
According to the Reddit user, the couple boarded the plane and began using racial insults, prompting a neighboring passenger to alert the flight crew.
She calls the other passengers “sheep,” insisting that they’re being asked to leave the plane because what she said offended the “masked passengers” and “the president,” mocking them.
She claimed that the United States was turning into China, begging passengers to try and see her side of the situation, asking “Do you guys see what’s happening in America?”
She expressed her love and admiration for Elon Musk at one point, calling him “the f*g king” and prompting the man behind her in the video to start laughing.
The only times the husband really gets involved is to say some slurs that get bleeped out.
While speaking with a crew member, he claims that as a retired FBI agent, he is aware of his rights.
Another time, he approached the man with the black mask and told him that he had more money than him, to which he received no answer.
No one on the plane, predictably, agreed with the profanities they were chanting.
Near the conclusion, the woman claims she believes they’re being thrown off the plane because they’re Trump supporters, eliciting grunts from the other passengers and one person saying, “Don’t do that.”
People in her row were heard giggling at her threats to sue JetBlue and the passengers in her row.
