Maskless ‘Karen’ slaps and spits at man for taking down mask to eat on the plane

Excuse me, lady. Where's yours?

ATLANTA – A female passenger was caught on camera spewing an expletive-laden rant and attacking a 80-year-old man for not wearing his mask during a Delta flight from Tampa to Atlanta.

‘Put your f***ing mask on!’

According to footage uploaded by ATL Uncensored, it began with the woman screaming at the man to “put [his] f***ing mask on” even as she wears her own mask on her chin.

The man responds by saying that he was eating and yells “Sit down, Karen! You mask up, b****!” back at her.

Enraged by his reply, the woman then returns the favor by landing a slap right across the man’s face, who shouts “You’re going to jail!”

Minutes later, several crew members appear and lead the woman down the aisle as she screams “You f***ing piece of s***!”

The woman, identified as Patricia Cornwall by police, was later arrested at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport after passengers on Flight 2790 reported the incident.

However, it’s not known what charges will she face over the public meltdown.

In a statement, Delta Airlines said that such occurrences were rare and that the company has “zero tolerance for unruly behavior at [its] airports and aboard [its] aircraft”.

Others suggested Delta Airlines banning eating and drinking onboard its flights so that no one has an excuse for not wearing a mask.
