A serial prankster has raised a few eyebrows after appearing to cook a steak using a passenger plane’s toilet.

In a now-deleted TikTok video Marcus Monroe filmed himself in the toilet of a Delta Airways flight.

His reasoning? They apparently don’t serve hot food on flights anymore.

Mr Monroe pulls a heating device out and places it in the bottom of a toilet bowl.

He then uses a tray on top of the seat appearing to grill himself some meat.

Not content with just a steak – he adds seasoning and some sauce before presenting it on a plate and taking the dish back to his seat.

People on Facebook recoiled in disgust at the video.

One man called his exploits “disgusting, dumb and dangerous”.

“Beef seasoned with poop germs,” one woman wrote.

Others called for him to be banned from flying.

Delta Airways responds to risky prank

Mr Monroe has since deleted the clip and said the entire thing was staged, according to Fox News. He’s yet to comment any further on it though.

He’s done similar pranks before. He recently cut the hair of a woman sitting in front of him on a flight after it blocked his TV screen.

But he later revealed the woman was wearing a wig.

Delta Airways reiterated to Fox News the video isn’t real after speaking with Mr Monroe.

“Appearing to go around safety regulations on board aircraft is no joke to us,” the airline said.
