Warren Buffet said it takes 20 years to build a reputation and only five minutes to ruin it.

These words no doubt hit hard for a woman who took the internet by storm last month.

And now the “plane lady” just told her side of the story after her intense rant went viral.

Tiffany Gomas gained national notoriety last month when her profanity-laced rant aboard an American Airlines flight was captured on video.

The original poster of the video on X had claimed that Gomas’ rant caused a three-hour flight delay and was accompanied by the added inconvenience of forcing everyone off the plane to later reboard.

Her words, with a definite urgency, were nonsensical to most.

An unfortunate path to 15 minutes of fame

“I’m telling you, I’m getting the f**k off and there’s a reason why I’m getting the f**k off and everyone can either believe it or they can not believe it, I don’t give two f***s, but I am telling you right now – that m*****f****r back there is NOT real,” Gomas loudly proclaimed. “And you can sit on this plane and you can die with them or not. I’m not going to.”

Social media reactions were merciless, with one user comparing the ordeal to an episode of the Twilight Zone.

Another remarked that it reminded her too much of a movie and added that she would have been spooked if she happened to be on the flight, saying that “I watched final destination way too many times I would’ve gotten off so f*****g fast.”

An apology and an appeal to public good

But now Gomas is putting herself out there and apologizing for her behavior.

She also described some unpleasant repercussions for how she earned her national spotlight.

In a video on social media, Gomas appeared to be genuinely remorseful for her actions and even apologized to parents who might have had to explain her behavior to confused or frightened children.

She also said that even though some of the memes created in the wake of the incident seemed funny to her, some of the attention was “invasive” and “unkind.”

Despite how events ultimately unfolded, she is hopeful that some good could come out of the whole ordeal.

She also thanked those close to her for their support.

Gomas said “I apologize and take accountability for my actions, they were uncalled for. My very worst moment was captured on video. Although the memes have been amusing, the flipside has been cruel. I’m thankful for my friends and family for supporting me through this. This experience has been life-altering and I hope to do good from it and promote positive mental health. Stay tuned!”

At the end of the video clip, Gomas made a call to action with text that read “join me on my journey of promoting positive mental health and standing up against cyberbullying.”

This is one message that ought to garner widespread support.
