A woman, who has been dubbed a Karen, reportedly started ranting about coronavirus while on a flight. The unidentified woman suddenly got up mid-air and stood in front of her fellow passengers before using her microphone to yell about Covid-19. She also spewed conspiracy theories like, “The pandemic started all because humans had lost a little bit of faith.” The video of the incident has gone viral on TikTok after being shared by singer-songwriter Jawny.

When flight attendants asked the woman to sit and not disturb anyone, she reportedly took offense and said, “This is my microphone and you can’t take it. I tried borrowing yours, you don’t want to let me use it. I brought my microphone I’m gonna use it.” Jawny shared the video mid-air on TikTok as well as on Twitter on Saturday, October 16, as he said he purchased in-flight Wi-Fi so that he can post it live. It has been said the footage has garnered over 900,000 views and 80,000 likes in just a few hours.

The clip showed one of the flight attendants handling the situation peacefully before warning Karen to go back to her seat otherwise additional actions will be taken. They said, “Get in your seat immediately or we are going to have to cuff you.” But Karen fired back, “You’re gonna cuff me? I don’t need to be cuffed, I’m completely harmless. I think you’re all enjoying this because like I said I’m not terrible to look at.”

One passenger was also heard yelling at Karen, “You just want the attention, that’s what she wants.” More flyers shouted at her, but what exactly they said was not audible in the TikTok video. After some time, Karen was taken to her seat by the crew members, where she picked up a travel carrier with her dog in it. She was then directed to a different part of the flight while a crew member held what appeared to be yellow disposable handcuffs. Karen was then heard saying: “My dog has better sense than any of you.”

The woman’s antics amused many on TikTok as a person commented, “That no fly list gonna be so long it’ll look like a CVS receipt.” The second one said, “She really though she was gonna do a TED talk [during] the flight.” A viewer sarcastically wrote, “She really though she was gonna do a TED talk [during] the flight,” while another one noted: “Portable mics are about to be banned from carry on bags.” “Karens in the air,” a comment read and the other one quipped, “We call em Airens.”

In another incident, a woman, also dubbed as Karen, went on to smoke a cigarette on a Spirit Airlines flight. The video of that incident was also shared on TikTok and when another passenger -- Alexa Majdalawi or @heyalexa_nah -- who posted the video as well as tried to stop the White woman from smoking, she replied, “It’s been a long day.” However, protests from other passengers led to the arrest of that woman eventually. Majdalawi wrote in the caption, “Only on a spirit flight: girl lit up an actual cigarette on the plane in her chair. Here’s her getting arrested,” before she added: “This is like the craziest flight story I’ve ever had in my whole life.”
