A furious plane passenger launched into a foul-mouthed rant on an American Airlines flight has gone viral after screaming ‘I’m Instagram famous’.

In echoes of the Tiffany Gomas ‘that motherf***** isn’t real’ saga, a new unidentified ‘plane woman’ is causing chaos online. 

Viewers have slated the glamorous passenger as ‘entitled’ and a ‘clown’ for throwing a tantrum on the American Airlines flight.

Influencer Morgan Osman has claimed that she is the woman in the footage on social media, but has not responded to requests for comment from DailyMail.com. 

Posting on Instagram, she said ‘I said what I said,’ before adding: ‘I didn’t get kicked off, I asked to leave instead of it turning violent. Thank u.’

The 20-second video begins with the woman, wearing a skin-tight gray unitard, taking her luggage from the overhead locker while shouting at a fellow passenger.

‘Call me a b***h again,’ she says to them, as the passenger filming lets out a snort of laughter. 

‘Call me a b****h again, I did nothing wrong!’ she shouts as she holds her suitcase and a handbag by her side. 

Someone tells her to shut up, to which she responds: ‘No you shut the f*** up! You shut the f*** up, and your b***h.’

The brunette turns to walk down the aisle before noticing the woman filming the interaction on her phone. 

Furious, she turns to her and shouts: ‘Film me – I’m Instagram famous, you f*****g bum.’

She can be heard cussing at other passengers as she stomps down the aisle out of shot, as several people laugh at the performance. 

American Airlines did not immediately respond to a request for comment by DailyMail.com, and it is unclear when the footage was taken.

It is currently unclear if Osman is the ‘Instagram famous’ woman is or which flight she was on.  

The unhinged interaction is reminiscent of Tiffany Gomas’ viral plane meltdown on July 2 where she shouted ‘that mother f***er isn’t real’ at another passenger as she left the aircraft. 

The 38-year-old marketing executive could be seen loudly telling a male flight attendant near her seat on the flight from Dallas to Orlando: ‘Stop the f***ing plane, stop the f***ing plane, stop the plane.’

Police reports show she had earlier accused a relative of stealing her AirPods, before screeching that the plane was not safe and would not make it to its destination.

Another X user shared the video of the unitard-wearing Instagram-famous woman commented: ‘Imagine being this entitled.’ 

Others laughed at her use of the insult ‘you bum’ and commented the clown emoji. 

Many people questioned who she is, with one person saying: ”I’m Instagram famous’ and no one on that plane knew who she was.’

Democrat insider says ‘we are in hell’ as Obama and Clintons’ inner circles plot to replace Biden

Published

on

Spread the love

The rebellion against Joe Biden’s presidential candidacy is growing and now Bill and Hillary Clinton are joining the behind-the-scenes plotting with Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi.

Well-connected aides for Obama and the Clintons are commissioning polls and lobbying Democratic donors to hold onto their dollars in an effort to pressure Biden out of the competition.

But the president’s allies are fighting back, joining their boss in digging in their heels about staying in the competition. Biden, his White House and his re-election team have said repeatedly he is in the race to stay.

The coup , however, is born out of concern that Biden, after his disastrous debate performance, can’t beat Donald Trump in November. But it has it roots in the decades-long simmering resentments between Obama, the Clintons and Biden.

They have long, interconnected ties among one another – they’ve shared staffers, passed legislation and campaigned for one another but they’re also longtime competitors who take turns getting annoyed at the attention and credit the other receives.

As Biden digs in his heels and the whispers against him grow, the interparty fighting shows no signs of stopping with plots and twists coming in at machiavellian levels.

It’s a question of how long it can continue before the whole thing implodes.  

‘Something’s got to give, because we’re in hell right now,’ said Democratic strategist Jim Manley, a well-connected former staffer who knows all the players in this modern Shakespearean drama. 

Joe Biden said the only way he would drop out of the presidential race is if his staff told him 'there's no way you can win'

Joe Biden said the only way he would drop out of the presidential race is if his staff told him ‘there’s no way you can win’

Biden has made it clear he’s in the race to stay.

At his press conference on Thursday evening he said the only way he would drop out is if his staff told him ‘there’s no way you can win.’ 

The rebellion has focused on showing him just that, plotting to use poll numbers and money pressures to force him out.  

Obama’s former campaign manager David Axelrod has long been skeptical of Biden’s chances of winning a second term. 

The debate – where Biden fumbled for words and stared into the camera – was a breaking point for many who worried the president would never recover from the damage. 

‘If what he said at the end of his presser is true, it sounds like Biden’s team has not been very candid with him about what the data is showing: the age issue is a huge and potentially insurmountable concern and his odds of victory are very, very slim,’ Axelrod wrote on X after Biden’s press conference.

The rebellion is a ‘growing’ network of ‘ruthless’ aides, Axios reported, calling it the ‘unofficial Committee to Unelect the President.’

The aides have worked for Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton – using their combined experience and rolodexes to rally party members against Biden. 

‘The Super Friends are assembling,’ a House Democrat told Politico. 

‘There’s a group of people who are going to go make their case to whomever they can get to at the White House that he needs to step aside and we’re going to get our asses kicked if he doesn’t.’ 

Democrats are growing more and more terrified that not only Biden will cost them the White House, he will drag down his fellow candidates, handing Republicans control of the House and Senate too.

Additionally, some major Democratic donors have told Future Forward – the largest pro-Biden super PAC – that roughly $90 million in pledged donations are on hold as long as Biden remains on top of the presidential tickets, the New York Times reported.

Biden’s re-election team, however, argues there is a path to victory in what they are calling the blue wall: Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.

And, they argue, if they can make it through the past two weeks they can make it through anything.  

‘If we can get through these two weeks that we’re living through, we can get through anything,’ Biden campaign chair Jen O’Malley Dillon told staffers on call Thursday per Axios.

‘What you are seeing in the public polling in the last couple days is what we are seeing in our polls. What we are seeing is that this is still a margin of error race,’ she said.  

And former Obama aide Tommy Vietor called the reports of a coup ‘totally inaccurate’ and ‘a little crazy.’

‘Someone is pushing around a conspiracy theory that there’s a coordinated effort by former Obama staff to push out Biden. It is totally inaccurate (and a little crazy),’ he wrote on X.

But the chatter continues that the best decision for the Democratic Party is having someone other than Joe Biden at the top of the ticket. 

With Biden stubbornly staying in the race – backed by family members Jill, Hunter and Valerie – the only way to get him out may the combined of pressure of the donors whose money keeps the party in play and an intervention by the party elders: Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.

If Biden can be convinced his candidacy would destroy Democrats on Capitol Hill and hand Trump unlimited power, he may step aside.

But Hillary Clinton and Obama may not be the right messengers to make that point. 

Biden, Obama and Clinton have long been competitive – they all ran against one another for the 2008 Democratic nomination that Obama eventually won.

Publicly they would all stand together, as Obama and both Clintons stood behind Biden after his debate debacle.

Privately it is a different story. 

Biden is said to still harbor anger at the duo over the 2016 election. Obama talked him out of running that cycle, clearing the path for Clinton, who lost to Trump.

Meanwhile, Obama is said to be frustrated that Biden has passed legislation he could not – such as the infrastructure act – and Clinton is resentful that Biden beat Trump. 

But all of them remain concerned about Biden’s low poll numbers. Trump has been in the led of the race for months and Biden’s debate performance didn’t help seal confidence in his candidacy.

The rebellion is ‘a little bit of score settling, but I think for a majority, they truly believe that Donald Trump poses an existential threat, and that’s something’s got to change,’ Manly said.

The best chance to talk Biden out of running could be Schumer and Pelosi. If they can convince Biden their lawmakers are worried that – with him leading the party they will lose re-election – it could cause the president to have second thoughts.

Pelosi has been at the center of the story for a while. 

She is the one that lawmakers have gone to with their worries about the president. And she has a strong relationship with Biden, strong enough she could deliver the death blow.

Plus she has the cojones to tell him to step down. 

‘She’s the f***ing power-broker. She’s the hatchet,’ a Democratic lawmaker told Axios of the former speaker.

Already Pelosi has publicly urged Biden to rethink he stance about staying in the race. 

‘It’s up to the president to decide if he is going to run. We’re all encouraging him to make that decision. Because time is running short,’ she said on Morning Joe on Wednesday.

I’m a famous serial killer profiler – here are four actions women can take to avoid becoming victims

Published

on

Spread the love

A famous serial killer profiler with 50 years of experience has revealed the steps women should take to avoid becoming the next victim.

Dr Ann Burgess, who spent decades studying the minds of serial killers, has found these individuals always search for women who are unprotected, appear weak and are living alone.

This has been the case in many infamous examples including the victims killed by Ted Bundy from 1974 through 1978 and the ‘Co-ed killer’ who went on a murdering spree from 1972 to 1973.

While those are decades-old cases, Burgess has warned that there are still serial killers among us and has shared four actions that will deter them from choosing you for the next horrendous crime.

Edmund Kemper (pictured) murdered his grandparents, six young female college students, his mother and her friend in the 1970s

Ted Bundy (pictured) murdered at least 30 women during the 1970s, although federal officials believe that number is higher

Dr Ann Burgess studied the methods of 36 serial killers to understand why they committed the heinous acts and the trauma that led to it. She has now revealed what women can do to protect themselves from becoming victims

Dr Burgess joined forces with the FBI in 1978 to consult with its Behavioral Science Unit, which developed the first-of-its-kind psychological profiling for serial killers.

They studied the methods and motives of 36 serial killers including Edmund Kemper (‘The Co-Ed Killer’) who murdered his grandparents, six young female college students, as well as his own mother and her friend in the 1970s.

The team examined how past trauma impacted the killer’s crimes and found that all serial killers had similar mental patterns from abusive mothers and absent fathers.

Burgess’s work with the FBI led to the arrest of high-profile killers including the Menendez brothers who murdered their parents Jose and Kitty at their Beverly Hills home in 1989. 

She has recently shot to fame again in a new Hulu three-part docu-series titled ‘Mastermind To Think Like a Killer.’

‘There is this misogyny that develops or this acting out against women due to these mommy issues, more or less,’ the show’s director Abby Fuller told PEOPLE.

‘Oftentimes they were victimized, so it’s like there’s this idea the victim becomes a victimizer and the kind of the scene is played out, only this time they’re the one in control rather than the victim.’

1. Trust your gut

If something feels wrong, Burgess said it probably is and you should immediately remove yourself from that situation or area.

Too many times, women feel something is off and think ‘Geez, I’m just overreacting,’ Burgess told PEOPLE, but by ignoring these thoughts, ‘they found themselves in very tight positions.’

When you feel that tight, clenching feeling in your stomach, ‘that’s your limbic system reacting,’ Burgess said.

‘It’s an involuntary system that is set in us to alarm us and you should pay attention to it. I just think that’s only good sense to listen to it, and not to override the system.’

2. Get a German Shepherd

Protection dogs, especially larger breeds like German Shepherds, have an intimidating appearance that could deter people from invading your home, Dr Burgess explained.

In particular, German Shepherds are naturally protective because they’re born with a gene that makes them form a strong bond with their owner.

They are also the most loyal, intelligent and courageous dogs in the canine family and have a sense of alertness that allows them to keep watch over the home for hours and can quickly notice any changes in their environment. 

German Shepherds are very vocal and often whine, growl and bark – making themselves known to a possible serial killer and alerting you to the invader’s presence. 

‘Get a German Shepherd. That’s the one thing I always say — get a German Shepherd,’ Dr Burgess said.

3. Put a ‘Beware of Dog’ sign outside your house 

Dr Burgess advised that a ‘Beware of Dog’ sign could stop serial killers from entering your home out of fear that they could be attacked.

They’re looking for an easy victim, someone that is alone and vulnerable, and this type of sign could stop serial killers from targeting you.

However, homeowners should be warned that ‘Beware of Dog’ signs can entice burglars to enter the residence out of curiosity over what valuables might be inside, according to researches at the University of Pennsylvania.

4. Put workman’s boots outside your door

Dr Burgess said she often puts workman’s boots outside her front door if she’s home alone to make it look like her husband is there.

Having these masculine boots outside the house could scare off serial killers who don’t want to fight someone to execute their plans.

‘A lot of killers seize opportunity,’ Dr Burgess said. ‘So if they … think that a man is there who could possibly fight them, they’re going to move to the next house for the easier victim.’

I’m a health expert – these are the 10 surprising everyday habits that are seriously ruining your health

Published

on

Spread the love

Enjoying a coffee first thing in the morning. Forgetting to breathe through your nose instead of your mouth.

These might seem like two innocuous and totally unrelated things – but they could be having a big impact on your health.

Chris Boettcher is a physical therapist in South Carolina who has garnered a large social media following for his everyday health tips and weight loss advice.

Drawing on recent research, he revealed the ten surprising habits that cause weight gain, ruin sleep and leave people less energetic.

A doctor has revealed nine daily habits that he says are undermining health (stock)

Revealing his list online — already viewed by 700,000 people — he said: ‘Health is simple.

‘[Junk food companies have] just spent the past several decades moving your lifestyle, foods, and the information you consume as far away from simple as possible.’

Maybe avoid an early morning coffee, says Boettcher (stock)

Drinking coffee first thing 

The first is drinking coffee too early.

The reason you reach for a cup of Joe so early is for the buzz, right? But Boettcher warned that caffeine is a diuretic which causes the body to lose water.

In the morning, you’re already dehydrated because you haven’t consumed water for eight hours and you lose fluid when you sleep through sweat.

He advised having around four cups of water first before getting your coffee fix.

The USDA says men should drink 13 cups of water per day while women should drink 11 cups.

Emails in bed

Reaching for your phone first thing may not be a good idea (stock)

It can be tempting to grab the phone first thing to check up on emails and notifications messages.

But Boettcher warned against this, saying there was ‘no worse way’ to start the day.

‘Spend some time outside, preferably moving, before you check your devices,’ he suggested.

Experts suggest that using phones early in the morning can trigger a stress response, causing therelease of cortisol in the body — affecting mood during the day.

Studies have also suggested phones have a ‘brain drain’ effect, and reduce the amount of cognitive capacity people have when they are nearby.

Mouth breathing

More than half of Americans are thought to be ‘mouth breathers’, primarily breathing through their mouth instead of their noses.

Mouth breathing can cause dry mouth because the constant flow of air in and out can cause water to evaporate, raising the risk of bacteria growth and then issues like tooth decay or infections.

It can also impair sleep if the tongue rolls back in the mouth and blocks the airways, causing snoring and sleep apnea — interrupting healthy sleep.

To combat this, Boettcher recommended practicing ‘mindfully breathing through your nose, and consider using tape while you sleep.’

Texting in bed is not a great idea, say experts (stock)

Hitting send before sleep

While settling down in bed, many play on their phone — scrolling the latest news or sending the odd text or email.

But experts warn against this, saying the blue light from phones can disrupt sleep and it can keep brains in an ‘active’ mode.

Boettcher advises turning off all devices after 5pm, using do-not-disturb mode and scheduling this for every evening.

Using a phone before sleeping can cause pre-sleep hyperarousal, making it harder to fall asleep.

It can also trigger stress, prompting the release of hormones like adrenaline — which also make it harder to shut off.

Eating cereals for breakfast

Cereal companies love to remind us breakfast is the day’s most important meal.

But cereals are often packed with refined carbohydrates and sugars, which can trigger rapid sugar spikes when consumed.

‘It’s why you feel chronically fatigued and hungry later in the day,’ Boettcher said.

Instead of cereals, he recommended a breakfast based on proteins and fats — such as one including eggs, oatmeal, berries and nuts.

Eating too little protein

Doctors say eating protein is a great way to feel full for longer and lose weight.

High-protein diets are recommended (stock)

And Boettcher is no exception to the rule, also recommending people focus on a high protein diet.

The USDA says people should eat 50 to 175 grams of protein every day.

Boettcher urges everyone to aim for the top of this estimate — equivalent to nearly four steaks per day — to gain the health benefits.

‘We want protein to be at the heart of our diet for satiety, muscle growth and repair, and immune functionality,’ he said.

Protein is the most satiating of the three macronutrients – carbs, fat and protein.

Desk jobs carry health risks, say experts (stock)

Desk jobs carry health risks, say experts (stock)

Sitting at a desk

More than eight in ten Americans work desk jobs, estimates suggest.

This can see them rooted to the same spot for upwards of eight hours a day, which can have negative effects on their health.

Boettcher says staying at a desk for more than six hours raises the risk of numerous complications including poor posture, weight gain and an increased risk of chronic diseases.

And his assertion is backed up by studies, which found desk workers were 13 percent more likely to die from any cause than those who were not at desks.

Boettcher said workers should try to move every hour by standing, stretching or walking to limit the negative health effects of the job.

Drinking sodas and juices

Calorie-filled drinks are appealing, but it may be best to avoid them.

One can of Coca-Cola contains 39 grams of sugar — above the daily recommended intake for both men and women — while a glass of orange juice contains 25 grams.

Experts warn that because there is no fiber, this sugar is absorbed directly into the bloodstream — prompting a sugar spike. 

‘Cutting liquid calories from juices, sodas and alcohol is a big lever to pull for weight loss and overall health,’ Boettcher said.

Alcohol can disrupt sleep (stock)

Enjoying alcoholic beverages at dinner

Many of us like to enjoy the odd glass of wine or a beer at dinner after a hard day at work.

But Boettcher warns against this, saying it can cause weight gain, anxiety and raises the risk of chronic diseases.

Drinking alcohol late in the day also raises the risk of sleep being disrupted, because it suppresses REM sleep — which is needed to help process memories from the day. 

A pint of beer or glass of wine contains roughly 14 grams of pure alcohol.

With the liver breaking down alcohol roughly at a rate of 10 grams per hour, it can take up to two hours to remove just one of these drinks from the bloodstream.

‘A few drinks a week won’t kill you,’ said Boettcher, ‘but if it’s everyday it might’.

Bright lights close to bedtime disrupt sleep (stock)

Viewing bright light close to bedtime

Another complication from viewing screens in bed is they can disrupt sleep.

These use blue light, which can inhibit the release of melatonin in the brain — which signals its time to sleep.
