·2-min read

A woman, reported to be an alleged anti-vaxxer, has gone on a bizarre rant armed with a microphone on a passenger plane.

Video of the woman was uploaded to TikTok on Sunday after she stood up in the aisle of a Delta Airlines flight.

“I tried borrowing yours [microphone] but you didn’t want me to use it,” she says.

“I brought my microphone so I’m going to use it”.

Some stewards ask her to take her seat but she continues speaking.

“The pandemic started all because humans had lost a little bit of faith,” she says.

She then realises she’s being threatened with handcuffs if she continues.

“I don’t need to be cuffed, I’m completely harmless,” she says.

“I think you’re only doing this because like I said, I’m not terrible to look at.”

The woman walks down the aisle and continues ranting. Agitated passengers voice their disapproval.

“You don’t even know what reality is anymore,” she says as she’s dragged away.

One of the passengers says: “she just wants attention”.

The woman claims her “dog has better sense than any of you, in fact my dog could be a better god for you people”.

The Independent reported the woman was an alleged anti-vaxxer. On TikTok, viewers were annoyed with the woman’s “nonsense”.

“Flight attendants don’t get paid enough to put up with this,” one woman wrote.

Others joked she was trying to do a TED Talk.

“Welcome to the no fly list,” one man wrote.

Delta Airlines confirmed to The Independent the incident did occur on one of its flights and praised the crew for de-escalating the situation.

It added the flight landed in New York without further incident.
