A ranting, swearing woman was escorted off an airplane in Philadelphia while giving police an earful about how “racist” they all were.
Another passenger caught the bizarre confrontation on camera.
The video of a woman being escorted off US Airways flight 738 was posted to Reddit Sunday, and the video has already garnered hundreds of comments and more than 20,000 views on YouTube.
“You’re a f***ing racist f***ing bigot,” the woman can be heard telling the officer trying to handcuff her. “All of you, racist motherf***ers.”
It’s unclear why she deemed her treatment racist, but she hurled plenty of threats and profanity.
“I’m going to sue the s*** out of you!” she says at another point. “I’m telling you this is harassment, you’re going to lose your f***ing job.”
As the woman is escorted off, the camera pans down to catch the uncomfortable glance of a young girl who appears to be blocking the noise of the confrontation with a pair of headphones.
Mike Irving, the Reddit user who posted the video, shed a little light on the situation:
She came on the plane yelling and swearing about how we are going to Portugal and not Brazil. She continued being loud and obnoxious and I’m assuming that some of the families with younger children told the flight attendants, who then called the police. When the police came, she refused to move, started screaming at them and telling them she would sue, and when they told her she would be arrested if she didn’t cooperate that just edged her on more. Eventually that man (not sure if he was a cop or not) basically said f*** it you’re being carried off this plane.
Content warning — very strong language:
As Mashable reported, US Airways flight 738 departed Philadelphia for Lisbon, Portugal, an hour after it was scheduled to leave. The airline had not immediately issued a statement on the incident.
