Tiffany Gomas, the revealed “not real” “mystery lady” that spawned a thousand memes, has released a statement about her viral meltdown.
“Hi everyone. It’s me, Tiffany Gomas,” she said. “Probably better known as the crazy lady on the plane, which is totally justified.”
“As you know, I haven’t been willing to talk about the viral video, but I finally feel like it’s time,” she continued. “First of all, I want to take responsibility for my actions. They were completely unacceptable. Grieving or not, I should have been, I should have controlled my emotions and I didn’t. My use of profanity was completely unnecessary, and I want to apologize to everyone on that plane, especially those who had children on board.”
“You can imagine going through that and trying to explain to your child what in the world has happened,” she added. “We all have our bad moments some much worse than others and mine was caught on camera for the whole world to see multiple times. Sorry, I’m trying not to look like Minnie Mouse.
“Well it’s been really funny for everyone and I’ve really enjoyed a lot of the memes,” he continued. “On the other hand, it’s very invasive and unkind, and I don’t know what I’d do without the love and support of my friends and family. They’re loyal to a fault and I don’t know what I did to deserve them.”
Dallas resident Tiffany Gomas reportedly told police her rant stemmed from a dispute over wireless headphones.
After Gomas’ strange outburst, she was removed from the plane, causing hours of delays for other passengers, according to documents obtained by The Post. In the viral video, Gomas can be heard saying, “I’m taking shit, and there’s a reason why I’m taking shit,” as he paced up and down the aisle of the plane. However, the 38-year-old refused to voluntarily disembark the American Airlines flight and had to be removed by staff.
As a result of Gomas’ objections, all other passengers on Flight 1009 from Fort Worth to Orlando had to disembark and go through security again. When law enforcement arrived, Gomas was found “distraught” and trying to get back on the plane. She declined to speak with Dallas-Fort Worth Department of Public Safety officers.
Finally, Gomas was escorted out of the secure area of the airport. However, this did not deter her from trying to re-enter the boarding area through TSA screening several times. She was eventually located on the sidewalk of the terminal, waiting for an Uber. The police issued her a ticket for criminal trespass, which she refused to sign. She did not provide any identification to the police and was not officially arrested or detained. Gomas, through a representative, declined to comment on the incident.
A LinkedIn profile attributed to Tiffany Gomas reveals that she is currently operating her own business, Uppercut Marketing. The profile includes the description: “Top performing sales leader, Fortune 50 account manager and project management executive with a fifteen year career. She has a track record of success in growing revenue by improving client relations, acquisition of major clients and expansion of account contracts. He has also overseen and coordinated large-scale events/projects.”
In 2017, PPAI magazine recognized Gomas as an emerging talent and a “visible young leader”.
Gomas showed courage and responsibility in presenting his apology, which has received unimaginable public attention.
“I hope I can use this experience and do some good in the world, and that’s what I intend to do,” he also said. “I hope you can accept my apology and I can start moving on with my life.”
