Pilot threatens passengers after nude pictures shared on flight

A pilot threatened to turn the aircraft around on the tarmac after a passenger airdropped an explicit picture to other passengers.

Someone on a Southwest Airlines flight decided to sent a naked picture just before takeoff by using AirDrop, which allows Apple users to wirelessly send and receive photos and documents.

A recent TikTok video captured the pilot's furious reaction. He even threatened to turn the Cabo San Lucas-bound flight around on the tarmac and get everyone off the plane.

"So here’s the deal, if this continues while we’re on the ground, I’m going to have to pull back to the gate, everybody’s going to have to get off," the pilot is heard saying over the loudspeaker.

"We’re going to have to get security involved and it's your vacation that is going to be ruined."

One passenger is heard gasping as the pilot made this announcement.

"So whatever that AirDrop thing is, quit sending naked pictures, and let’s get yourself to Cabo," the pilot continues.

The video of the pilot taking a strong stand against unsolicited naked pictures went viral on TikTok. Several people said the pilot was acting like a parent in this situation.

"I’m gonna turn this plane around and everyone’s vacation will be ruined. Haha major dad vibes," one person said on TikTok.

While Android users in the comments remarked how they always missed out on the fun, Apple users reminded each other to change the phone's settings if you don't want strangers sending you random photos.

In a statement to FOX Business, Southwest Airlines acknowledged the incident and said the "safety, security and wellbeing" of customers was always the highest priority.

"When made aware of a potential problem, our employees address issues to support the comfort of those travelling with us," the statement said.

Man send photo of penis for "fun"

Sadly, this is not the first time someone has sent other random people an explicit photo while on a plane.

In June, a man named Larry was on a flight to Denver when he sent people on his flight a photo of his penis.

Another TikTok user accepted the AirDrop and quickly alerted staff.

Larry was questioned by the crew about why he thought sending a photo of his penis would be appropriate.

"I don't know. Just having a little fun," he said before apologising for his lewd act.
