Woman in Viral ‘Not Real’ Plane Freakout Video Speaks Out
The woman who went viral for departing from a plane while shouting about a man being “not real,” quickly gained popularity online and has since been identified. Memes followed and people did their typical digging for as much information as they could find.

Tiffany Gomas spoke out on social media about the viral video and what happened on the flight. Gomas started by taking accountability for what happened and apologizing to everybody on the flight.

[The airline manager] explained that the passenger was denied boarding and they wanted her escorted to the public side. She did end up getting a warning for Criminal Trespass, but the police didn’t charge her or take her into custody.
