Now, we all love TikTok.


It’s pretty unlikely that you’ll see a teenager who isn’t obsessed with the social media platform.

And it’s not just the kids.

The majority of us adults are too, with us posting every inch of our lives on these apps and communicating with others through them solely.

It’s not just about funny videos though.

People can actually earn a living through social media, such as selling things on Instagram or starting a business through Twitter.

But there are some apps that aren’t so productive…


And TikTok is one of them!

What is TikTok?


Basically, it is an iOS and Android app made for creating and sharing short lip-sync, comedy, and talent videos.

It went viral pretty quick


It was the world’s fourth most downloaded app in 2018, beating Instagram and Snapchat – which is a pretty big achievement!

It reminds many people of Vine.


Who remembers Vine? Launched in 2012, Vine was a short-form video hosting service that allowed users to share 6-second-long looping video clips.

And TikTok videos are similarly weird.

But it has to be said, the majority of them are rather entertaining.

Animals and TikTok are the bestcombination.

More and more people jumped on board the TikTok bandwagon and started getting their beloved pets involved.

This is a classic…

People began getting more and more creative, including autotuning this kitty’s annoyed yowls.

Some are just plain weird…

It’s a mystery as to what goes through people’s heads when these types of TikTok videos are made.

But the latest video to go viral is definitely one you need to see for yourself.

A woman had to be restrained when she tried to leave an American Airlines flight mid-air.

A fellow passenger, that was on the same flight as the woman in question, has shared a video of the whole ordeal.

And people are shocked, to say the least…

The passenger, and TikTok user @lol.ariee, captured a video of the woman taped to her chair on the Flight from Dallas to Charlotte, North Carolina, on July 6 last year…

The woman, who was bound to her seat, could be seen looking at other passengers leaving the aircraft after it landed, shouting “You! You! You!” as they left.

The flight had reportedly faced a 3-hour delay, and shortly before the plane was due to land, the woman lost control.

She “had an outburst and like, had the urge to get off the plane,” according to the TikTok user.

“And she was saying, ‘I need to get off this plane,’ and she went up to the exits and started banging on the doors, saying, ‘You need to let me off this plane!’” @lol.ariee said.

As per The New York Post, American Airlines said the woman was physically and verbally abusive to staff and “attempted to open the forward boarding door,” resulting in the crew taping her to her seat “for the safety and security of other customers and our crew.”

The airline also alleged that the woman bit a member of staff as they tried to restrain her…

The woman now faces a $81,950 fine from the Federal Aviation Administration.

“Federal law prohibits interfering with aircraft crew or physically assaulting or threatening to physically assault aircraft crew or anyone else on an aircraft,” they said.
