An air traveler is going viral for all the wrong reasons after being recorded losing his mind over a crying baby aboard a Southwest Airlines Flight headed to Orlando.
The clip’s unidentified passenger – along with the rest of the flight – apparently endured 45 minutes of non-stop crying from the young child when they had probably expected the only non-stop thing to be the flight’s leg from their point of origin.
As NBC New York described, the internet’s latest hullaballoo aboard an aircraft has garnered massive views online. The local media outlet wrote:
The now-viral clip, which has racked up more than 134,000 views on TikTok, shows a man screaming at a flight attendant for a crying baby on the plane in a video titled, “Belligerent passenger causes diversion.”
For three minutes of the nearly four-minute video, a fellow passenger records the passenger’s tirade directed toward two flight attendants. TODAY does not independently know what occurred before the moments captured on video.
The angry man, who is not identified in the clip, uses profanity more than 20 times toward Southwest crew and fellow passengers, to express his disgust in a baby crying.
The American Tribune previously reported on Toronto Blue Jays relief pitcher Anthony Bass getting roasted on social media for condemning his wife’s flight crew for demanding she pick up scattered popcorn at the end of their journey. In that post, he whined that his wife was pregnant yet forced to get on her knees to clean up her other two kids’ mess.
Bass was annihilated by most comments, who questioned why basic parenting no longer required the expectation to tidy up after oneself. Nonetheless, Bass was given a response from United Airlines in that case and was told the flight attendant was being addressed.
As far as this latest jetway meltdown, it just needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Enjoy:

Clearly, the man is in the wrong. Babies cry. End of discussion. Who shouldn’t be doing the crying is a grown man. Several Twitter comments said something similar.
“I always wonder like do you THINK the parents want a crying child?? OBVIOUSLY NO!!!” wrote one comment on TikTok. “We are HYPER aware our child is screaming!”
=”If you can’t handle the sound of a crying baby or toddler, maybe air travel or being in public isn’t for you. Personally, I’d be embarrassed by my inability to cope with something so basic that happens all the time. But I just believe that’s part of being a functioning adult,” one user observed.
Worse yet, the man wasn’t just crying. He was cursing up a storm and berating an innocent airline employee for simply trying to keep the peace and also ruining the flight experience for the rest of the passengers. Talk about selfish.
Somehow, the baby can’t make noise but he can?
Still, having not been on the flight, several Twitter commenters couldn’t help but ignore the crude jerk’s reaction and focus instead on the hilarity and absurdity of the situation.
“Saw that Denzel gesture at the end. I’m outta control, you’re outta control, the whole system is outta control,” one user wrote.
“OH MFG!! I’m dead! sir that baby is probably just as uncomfortable as him. Man ended with “I’m triggered”” another said.
“You’re yelling. “SO IS THE BABY” one laughed.
“Did that mf pay extra” quoted another person.
