Another day another Karen. When a woman refused to wear a mask on the plane there was only one way it would go. And it was not her way. This time the "manager" was not on her side either and Karen got what was coming for her. In a gratifying move, she was swiftly whisked off the plane and the moment was even caught on camera. Moreover, the other passengers burst into applause which just goes to show that people are done with Karens and their antics. The video has since gone viral.
The viral video was captured by Jordan Slade, who was a passenger on the flight. The woman in the video was not wearing any face-covering, which went against the flight safety guidelines. She was kicked off the flight that was traveling from Ohio to North Carolina earlier this week, reported the Daily Mail . Slade said that the woman claimed she wasn't wearing a mask because of a medical condition when another passenger confronter her about it. "A woman in the back got up from her seat and sort of confronted the attendant saying she was going to miss her connection and then directed the conversation back to the woman saying if she misses her flight because of her," Slade said.
American Airlines have made it mandatory for face coverings while traveling. It is also a mandatory requirement in all airports. They are completely in power to bans customers who refuse to comply with these safety guidelines. “According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention one of the best ways we can slow the spread of COVID-19 is to wear a face covering,” Alison Taylor, Chief Customer Officer of American Airlines stated . “Customers and team members have been clear that they feel safer when everyone is wearing a face covering. In light of this important feedback, we are expanding and enhancing our requirements onboard and at airports.”
The only exception for not having a face covering is if the person is younger than two years or at the time they are eating and drinking. As for the flight Karen, it remained unclear whether she was able to produce any evidence about her medical condition, stated Scallywag & Vagabond . Chances are she did not, which was why she was thrown out of the flight. She could be seen gathering three handbags and being escorted out of the plane by two masked attendants. As she was heading out, the other passengers started clapping and cheering. "You can clap all you want," the woman commented. "Just leave. We have flights to get on," one passenger snapped back.
"She was argumentative from the gate,' Slade, who uploaded the video on TikTok ' stated, 'She demanded to be boarded first and was causing an obvious scene. Once boarded she was making phone calls and arguing with the attendant when asked to put her phone away." Slade went on to reveal that, "She also refused to wear a mask putting others on the flight at risk... Another passenger even got up to confront her about her behavior with no mask."
