Taking a flight is a scary thing for a lot of people, most of us will be totally familiar with pre-flight jitters but you’ve never seen a freakout quite like this one, as a clearly distressed American Airlines passenger makes a scene over a passenger that “isn’t real.”

The original video, which has since been deleted from TikTok reportedly amassed a viewership of over ten million. The video saw the stressed woman explode into an expletive-filled tirade saying: “I’m getting the f*ck off this plane.” Her reason being because “that motherf*cker back there is NOT REAL.” We’re confused too—check out the viral clip:

If I was told that I could “die with him or not” while I was on a flight, I’m not sure I’d have the composure to remain onboard. The Independent reports that the original poster of the TikTok claimed that the incident delayed the flight at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport by three hours.

Naturally, users were quick to share their thoughts on the incident, with one TikToker stating that the meltdown was “giving Kristen Wiig,” whose character in the 2011 film Bridesmaids also began to see things that weren’t there after becoming intoxicated on a flight. Another user said “it’s giving Final Destination, I’m going off with her.” Me too sis.

Oddly enough this is the second plane-related incident to hit our feeds this week, with videos circulating of an even more frightening incident where a passenger on a flight back from Croatia attempted to open the plane door mid flight amid what looked to be a severe panic attack.

Brave tourists managed to restrain the distressed individual. As one commenter put it: “Those passengers said, ‘This won’t be my Netflix documentary day!’ Kudos to those brave men” Being on a flight where something like this happens is my worst nightmare.

We hope this hasn’t put you off flying out of muggy Britain this summer. Remember: it’s still safer than a trip in a car!
