The angry man can be seen in the video yell at flight attendants and from other passengers about the baby’s supposed constant crying.
The plane had circled West Palm Beach Due to weather issues, when the man snapped and started screaming, Grabowski said, according to news outlet TMX.
The cantankerous passenger claimed that the Baby had been crying 40 minutes and had woken him up from a nap.
“I had headphones on,” he said.
He also argued with the flight attendants that he “had paid for a ticket to have a damn comfortable flight,” which the crying baby then bothered him about.
“We’re in a goddamn tin can with a baby in a god—n echo chamber – and you want to talk to me about how you’re fucking fine?” the man can be seen and heard screaming, among other things.

At one point, one of the flight attendants remarked to the passenger that “is a man” while the upset toddler “is a baby.”
A woman, believed to be the upset man’s partner, can be seen throughout the video trying to calm him down, to no avail.
According to TMX, the flight was eventually diverted to Orlando International Airport.
When the plane landed, the angry man refused to leave his seat – forcing all of the plane’s passengers to disembark, Grabowski said, according to TMX.

Other passengers featured in the TikTok video appeared both horrified and amused by the man’s behavior.
“He was trying to make his case that he had the right to cry because there were two adults with the crying baby and he shouldn’t have been disturbed,” Grabowski said, as reported by TMX.
