A woman stuck between flights at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport was the centerpiece of a viral video posted on Instagram on Monday, after she lost her cool and took it out on a JetBlue employee.
“Who does that to a woman like me? Get me out of here!” the unnamed woman screamed at a JetBlue employee; she was among passengers to wait around 20 hours at the airport, according to New York Post, yet her flight wasn’t the one affected by major delays.
Instagram user Drelondon apparently caught the woman in action and posted it on the social media site.

“While in Fort Lauderdale airport everyone remained calm apart from this woman who went crazy on #JetBlue staff called him a rapist & she said she had a gun on me + many crazy things in front of kids.”
JetBlue later spoke with Yahoo Lifestyle, and indicated the woman was denied boarding because she apparently appeared extremely inebriated. She happened to be among other passengers waiting after technical issues delayed their flight for up to 20 hours.
“On January 6, crew members at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport requested assistance from local law enforcement after a customer was denied boarding for indications of intoxication and became disruptive,” the airline representative said.
Deputies with the The Broward County Sheriff’s Office eventually responded and arrested the woman. It’s unclear what the woman was charged with. The sheriff’s office was not immediately available for comment.
