Miami police escorted an unruly passenger off a Delta flight after she slapped a flight attendant who asked her to wear a mask.
The flight from Miami to Atlanta was preparing to take off when the altercation occurred in front of shocked passengers.
Other passengers filmed the incident and shared the footage on social media.
The video shows the flight attendant asking the female passenger and her boyfriend to buckle up and wear their face masks in accordance with local ordinances.
But the passenger refused to put on her face mask which was hanging under her chin. The passenger's boyfriend tried to hold her back after she slapped the flight attendant in the face.
Other passengers stood up and intervened in the argument, separating the two women.
The footage shows Miami police escorting the couple off the plane moments later. The flight was delayed for 4 hours.
"The police have boarded the aircraft. The passenger does now seem to be leaving," said Katty Kay, a journalist with BBC News, who was on the flight. "The @Delta flight attendants handled it with remarkable patience and good humor," she tweeted.
There have been numerous altercations over airline passengers refusing to wear face masks amid the weakening pandemic.
A recent study by the CDC shows 74% of people who always wear face masks were infected with Covid-19. The same study shows only 12% of people who never wear face masks were infected.
A Utah man has apologized after he lost his job for coughing on Black Lives Matter protesters.
Robert Brissette, of Kanab, issue an apology after he was caught on viral video coughing on Black Lives Matter protesters.
The incident happened on Saturday, Oct. 10, at a Kanab gas station. Brissette told the NY Post he was pumping gas when the protesters "goaded" him by throwing rocks at his pickup truck.
"The action was screwed up on my part," Brissette said. "I should never have done that, and that part I apologize for. But to the person that I did it at, I do not apologize to. I apologize to the general public for being a dumb s—t doing that. But the person I did it at deserved it."
Brissette, 42, said he didn't actually cough on the protesters. "I only made the sound. I didn't spit on them or anything. I fake-coughed. It was a fake."
Brissette said he fake-coughed 11 times and he knocked a cap off a protester's head. He said a female BLM organizer slapped him three times in the face, but the video didn't capture that.
Brissette and the BLM protesters are Caucasian. He said he was forced to delete his social media accounts and change his phone number after receiving an avalanche of threats.
Brissette created a GoFundMe page to raise funds for his legal defense. But he took the page down after police declined to charge him.
An Antifa protester was assaulted by a Trump supporter for playing an anti-Trump rap song by rappers YG and Nipsey Hussle.
The incident happened in a convenience store parking lot in Denton, Texas on Saturday.
Trump supporters held a small rally outside the Buc-ee's convenience store in support of President Trump, who was under observation at Walter Reed Medical Center after testing positive for Covid-19.
Jason Lata was arrested after he punched an Antifa protester who played an anti-Trump rap song, "F**k Donald Trump," in his pickup truck.
In cellphone footage, Lata and another man confront the protester, as the song played in the background. Lata yelled profanities and screamed "Turn it off!", before punching the man in the face.
The song is by rappers YG and the late Nipsey Hussle. It was released in 2016 as part of a movement to motivate Black rap fans to vote for Hillary Clinton.
Don't let Donald Trump win, that ni**a cancer
He too rich, he ain't got the answers
He can't make decisions for this country, he gon' crash us
No, we can't be a slave for him
Lata was booked into the City of Denton Jail and bail was set at $15,000.
An arrest warrant has been issued for Rayshard Brooks' girlfriend, Natalie White, a suspect in the torching of the Wendy's restaurant where Brooks was gunned down by a police officer.
White, 29, was captured on cellphone video allegedly pouring an accelerant into the restaurant before it burned to the ground following peaceful protests on the night of June 13.
White faces charges of arson in the first degree, the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department said on Saturday.
Police responded to a call about a man asleep behind the wheel of a car in the Wendy's drive-thru lane.
In police body cam footage, Brooks said White was his girlfriend.
"Natalie White, she's my girlfriend," he told the officers. He explained that she dropped him off at the restaurant and then walked to her home a few blocks away.
He said when police arrived, he backed the car into a parking space but he did not drive the car to the restaurant.
Brooks was shot multiple times as he fled from the police officers who attempted to arrest him for a suspected DUI.
Surveillance video shows Brooks turn and fire the taser at the pursuing officer who shot him twice in the back.
Officer Garrett Rolfe was fired from the police force and charged with 11 criminal counts including felony murder and aggravated assault.
Brooks' wife, Tomika Miller, was gifted with a new car to help her get around with her four children, 13-year-old step-son Mekai, and daughters Blessing, 8, Memory, 2, and Dream, 1.

All 57 members of Buffalo, NY's Emergency Response Team resigned in "disgust" after two of their fellow officers were suspended for shoving an elderly man to the ground during a George Floyd protest.
Graphic film shot by a cameraman for WBFO News shows Martin Gugino, 75, approach a group of Buffalo police officers and attempt to interact with them.
Two of the officers shoved the elderly man to the ground, causing him to hit his head on the sidewalk.
Blood is seen pouring from Gugino's right ear as he lay motionless on the sidewalk while the officers callously walked past him.
Gugino, a longtime peace activist from Amherst, was hospitalized at Erie County Medical Center with a concussion.
Two officers were suspended, and NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo called for the officers to be criminally charged.
"You see that video and it disturbs your basic sense of decency and humanity," Cuomo said Friday during his daily press briefing on the coronavirus.
"Why, why, why was that necessary? Where was the threat? Older gentleman. Where was the threat? And then you just walk by the person while you see blood coming from his head."
He added: "I was sick to my stomach... it was the same feeling I had for 90 of the past nights when I got the death tolls for coronavirus. I was physically sick to my stomach."
WARNING: the video is very graphic. Viewer discretion is advised.
A male-to-female trans was badly beaten by a mob of at least 30 men in a convenience store parking lot in Minnesota this week.
Minnesota is ground zero for violent protests in response to the death of an unarmed Black man at the hands of a white police officer.
Cell phone video shows the Hispanic MtF trans being punched and stomped by a mob of Black males.
The tweet's author seemed to blame Black men in general and Black "cishet" females for the mob violence.
"Black men I don't have it in me to write a long post cishet Black women I don't have it In me to reprimand you all either. DO BETTER."
After many on social media questioned what preceded the beat down, someone wrote:
"Real Story of [Iyanna] Dior She jump into another persons car. Than she drove 50mph in a parking lot with kids.She than crash into 4-5 different cars. She was also not sober she was intoxicated. She than got out the car and ran to the corner store call sam diary #BlackLivesMatter."
The bloodied and bruised Dior fled inside the convenience store where the owner provided shelter behind the counter.
But Dior began to swear at the mob which only elevated tensions again.
Twitter users expressed outrage at the savage beating, as many asked for contact details to help Dior.
Conservative Twitter activist Mark Dice tweeted, "So, Black Lives Matter, unless it's a black transgender person who happened to dent another black person's car in Minneapolis?"
Several concerned citizens reached out to Dior on Facebook. Dior soon posted a request for donations to "help me pay for the vehicles I destroyed..."
A Bronx woman went viral on Tuesday after she shamed the looters who ransacked her restaurant during 8 days of violent protests in New York City.
The woman pleaded with rioters to help build up the black community, not tear it down.
The woman is co-owner of Valentine Deli Corp, a sandwich shop located at 2463 Valentine Avenue in the Bronx, NY.
"You said Black lives matter. You lied! Look what you did to my store," she said.
The woman made a passionate plea to the looters to "Get a job" and "Stop stealing. Fix the neighborhood."
The woman didn't ask for money. She apparently has insurance. Men who appear to be construction workers are at the scene cleaning up.
Still, several GoFundMe accounts were created to help rebuild the store.
The largest fund raised nearly $50,000 in donations.
The protests started as a peaceful response to the killing of an unarmed Minnesota man who died in police custody.
But the peaceful protests devolved into violence and widespread looting in Democratic cities once Black Lives Matter and Antifa hijacked the demonstrations.
Black Lives Matter is an organization that campaigns against violence. Antifa, an anarchist group funded by globalist George Soros, stands for "anti-facists."
The backlash continues over a YouTube star who "rehomed" her Asian adopted son because the 3-year-old's special needs issues were too complex for her to handle.
YouTube viewers lashed out at vlogger Myka Stauffer and her husband James after they gave up their adopted son, Huxley, because his autism was too much to handle.
According to Today, major brands bailed on the couple following the intense backlash. Brands including Playtex Baby, Danimals, Suave, Chili's, and Big Lots have announced they will no longer partner with Stauffer.
Myka and James earn thousands of dollars a month on YouTube.com. Their revenue increased when they documented the difficulties trying to adopt baby Huxley from China in 2017.
In a post in 2017, Stauffer wrote that she knew he was "profoundly developmentally delayed" beyond what was detailed in the adoption paperwork.
After 3 years of documenting Huxley's every move, the Stauffers quietly stopped including him in social media photos, and went on with their lives as if he never existed.
In a tearful video - in response to her followers demanding to know where Huxley was - she claimed she wasn't aware of Huxley's autism or a newly diagnosed brain cyst.
The Stauffers' followers accused the couple of using little Huxley to create content for profit, then "rehoming" the boy with another family when they could no longer monetize him.

As the looters ran out of stores with their arms full of shopping bags, one woman yelled, "Your looting is going to get Trump reelected!"
The video, which was posted to Twitter by Buzzfeed News reporter Brianna Sacks, shows a woman standing on a corner yelling at looters as they stole from local businesses.
"This is going to get Trump reelected!," she screamed. "Please stop. Think first. Do not get Trump reelected for your behavior. Please, Santa Monica. We don't want Trump reelected!"

NBA star J.R. Smith posted a video online explaining why he beat up an ANTIFA member who vandalized his car during the George Floyd protests in California.
"I just want y'all to know right now before you all see this sh*t somewhere else. One of these little motherf*cking white boys didn't know where he was going and broke my f*cking window in my truck," Smith explained in a video.
Smith said he chased the vandal down and "whooped his a**."
"So, if the footage come out and y'all see it, I chased him down and whooped his ass. He broke my window. This ain't no hate crime. I ain't got no problem with anybody who doesn't have a problem with me. There's a problem with the motherf*cking system and that's it. That motherf*cker broke my window and I whooped his ass. He didn't know whose window he broke, and he got his ass whooped."
Fan reaction was mixed. One IG user wrote:
"How you feel stupid but still got the video up .take that sht down and make an apology video. You got millions and your car is insured .how dumb can you become."
ANTIFA members have been accused of using the tragedy of Floyd's death to cause havoc and chaos and disrupt the American way of life.
The anti-fascist group is reportedly funded by Hungarian-born globalist George Soros, who has homes in the United States and Europe.
A Black police officer was suspended after viral video shows him knocking out a mixed-race woman who assaulted a police sergeant during a George Floyd protest in Baltimore on Friday night.
Cellphone video shows the barefoot woman arguing with a white male police sergeant who grabbed her arm when she turned to walk away.
The woman responded angrily by punching him twice in the head. The Black cop, who was behind the woman, landed a solid right to the woman's face, knocking her to the pavement.
The video went viral, sparking more outrage on social media early Saturday.
Baltimore Mayor Bernard C. "Jack" Young said in a statement that the officer had been "removed from police duties" and the incident is under investigation, The Baltimore Sun reported.
Mayor Young called the footage "deeply disturbing."
Young said the officer who was struck by the woman "showed remarkable restraint by not retaliating as he was being assaulted."
Baltimore City Fraternal Order of Police President Mike Mancuso said, "it is reprehensible that you would use political pressure after a situation where one officer was protecting his colleague from further attack. Escalation occurred only after the female attacker continued the assault."
The woman was not charged with assault.
Violent protests and fires erupted in cities across the U.S. for the 4th straight night in response to the murder of an unarmed Black man in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Monday, May 25.
Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, 44, was arrested and charged with the murder of George Floyd, 46, on Friday.
Candace Owens is being dragged on Twitter for stating her opinions on the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer.
Four cops were fired from the police force on Tuesday, a day after Floyd, who is Black, died from asphyxiation when a white cop kneeled on his neck for nearly 8 minutes (brain death occurs in 4 minutes).
Owens, a conservative, pro-Trump activist, angered Black Twitter when she suggested Black people act like a "trained chimpanzee" every time a Black person is murdered by a non-Black person.
In a livestream on YouTube, Owens compared Black people to the Scottish people who have passed the English people in engineering, and in the sciences, "because they challenged themselves to be better, and not to be worse."
"They didn't pretend that somehow having a broken language, having broken-down families was a symbol of who we are. And that is so unique to Black America. I won't subscribe to it. People say that's how you have to be Black.
"'That's how you have to be Black'? Listen to your psychological conditioning. If to be Black, you can't speak in proper English, or you're 'acting white.' Right? To be Black, you instantly have to jump up like a fucking trained chimpanzee - excuse my language - like a trained chimpanzee every single time the media runs a story, and act angry, and riot, and talk about how pained you were to see this happen to Black people, but keep your mouth shut, right, when it happens Black-on-Black because if you talk about the Black-on-Black crime, you're a race traitor, right?"
Two Minneapolis police officers are on paid leave after a video shows one of the cops pinning a Black man on the ground with a knee on his neck. The man, who was handcuffed, repeatedly said he could not breathe. He later died.
The video, which was recorded on May 25, was uploaded to Facebook by a user named Darnella Frazier. She is heard asking the officer why his knee is on the man's neck when he's not resisting arrest.
The man was identified as George Floyd. Floyd, who was face down on the ground, repeatedly groaned and complained that he couldn't breathe. His nose was bleeding and his arms were handcuffed behind his back.
"My stomach hurts. My neck hurts. Everything hurts... Water or something. Please. Please. I can't breathe, officer... I cannot breathe. I cannot breathe."
Eventually, he stopped moving and appeared to fall unconscious.
"That's bulls—t, Bro," said a male bystander. "You're stopping his breathing right there, Bro. Get him off the ground, Bro. You're being a bum right now."
A police statement said the cops responded to a call about a "forgery in progress." They found the man sitting in a blue car and he "appeared to be under the influence," according to the report obtained by Yahoo News.
"After he got out, he physically resisted officers. Officers were able to get the suspect into handcuffs and noted he appeared to be suffering medical distress. Officers called for an ambulance."
A white woman who called 911 on a Black man for asking her to leash her dog has apologized for her insensitivity and poor impulse control.
Amy Cooper, who was dubbed "Karen" on Twitter.com, told CNN she wanted to apologize to "everyone" who was offended by her actions.
According to Urbandictionary.com, "Karen" is a pejorative term, similar to "Becky", that expresses contempt or disapproval of white women who fit a pattern of socially disagreeable behavior.
"I'm not racist," she said. "I did not mean to harm that man in any way."
Amy Cooper said she was walking her dog between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. Monday in an area of NY's Central Park called The Ramble, when she encountered Christian Cooper (no relation), who asked her to leash her dog.
Central Park policy requires dogs to be leashed at all times. But Amy took offense at Christian's demands and she called 911 to report she felt threatened.
Christian recorded the encounter because things tend to go left whenever the police get involved.
By the time police arrived on the scene, both Coopers and the dog were gone. But Christian's video went viral on social media, sparking outrage.
Amy Cooper lost her job and gave up her dog amid the chaos. She told CNN her entire life is destroyed.
"I think I was just scared," Amy told CNN. "When you're alone in the Ramble, you don't know what's happening. It's not excusable, it’s not defensible."
When asked if he’d accept her apology, Christian told CNN he would "if it's genuine and if she plans on keeping her dog on a leash in the Ramble going forward, then we have no issues with each other."
