Southwest Airlines passenger AirDrops nude photo to other fliers

The pilot of a Southwest Airlines flight threatened to cancel takeoff after someone on the plane sent a naked photograph to other passengers.

“Don’t make me turn this car around” is usually a phrase a parent or guardian uses when children are causing a scene in the car — but a pilot basically used this exact verbiage after a passenger was said to be sending nude photos to other fliers.

The pilot of a Southwest Airlines flight threatened to cancel takeoff after someone on the plane kept airdropping a naked photograph to other passengers.

The incident, involving Apple’s AirDrop file transfer service, involved a flight from Houston’s William P. Hobby Airport to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, CNN reported.

“So here’s the deal, if this continues while we’re on the ground I’m going to have to pull back to the gate, everybody’s going to have to get off, we’re going to have to get security involved and ... vacation is going to be ruined,” the pilot could be heard saying in a video that’s been seen about 2.7 million times on TikTok.

The passenger who filmed the video said the photo was of “a nude man that had AirDropped himself to everyone.”
