A woman dubbed ‘Karen’ was filmed getting kicked off a plane for refusing to wear a face mask and arguing with flight attendants.
The incident happened at an Ohio airport where passengers boarded an American Airlines flight destined for North Carolina.
Before the plane took off, however, problems had already begun as one “argumentative” passenger demanded to be boarded first, argued with flight attendants, and refused to put on a face mask.
In a video taken and shared by Jordan Slade, the woman is seen collecting her baggage before getting escorted off the plane by American Airlines staff. As the woman walked away, other passengers clapped with joy.
“She was argumentative from the gate. She demanded to be boarded first and was causing an obvious scene,” Slade said in an interview with DailyMail.com.
As she went on to suggest, the woman then proceeded to make phone calls and argued with the flight attendant who asked her to put her cellphone away.
“She also refused to wear a mask putting others on the flight at risk,” Slade added. “Another passenger even got up to confront her about her behavior with no mask.”
According to the reports, ‘Karen’ insisted that she couldn’t wear a face mask because of her medical condition. As Slade explained, however, the mask wasn’t the only issue that led to the woman’s removal from the plane.
The incident went viral after Slade uploaded her video on TikTok. As she explained, she only decided to go online with the footage due to ‘Karen’ causing such a disruption to the flight.
