Twitter Reacts To Passenger’s Poor Ebola Comment

Passenger Jokes About Ebola

With all the news and dangers surfacing around about Ebola, it is never appropriate to joke about the disease, especially in a public area. Recently,  a passenger on U.S. Airways flight 845 made a comment on the flight about jokingly having Ebola.  The passenger was retrieved from officials at the plane’s landing location at Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. When walking down the isle off of the plane, the passenger said, “I was just kidding,” he could be heard saying in a video posted to social media. “I ain’t from Africa!” CNN reports.

Many are trending about the subject via Twitter.

The other passengers on the flight were reported to have mixed reactions on the plane. Some were seen covering their faces and others were booing as the passenger was taken off the flight. While the initial comment is not confirmed, CNN also stated the passenger said, “I have Ebola. You’re all screwed.”
