The viral 'not real' plane woman has responded to a recent Saturday Night Live skit where they parodied her infamous outburst.
A video of Tiffany Gomas gained a lot of attention earlier this year, capturing the marketing executive declaring 'that motherf**ker back there is not real', and shouting at the flight attendants, before later being removed from the American Airlines flight.
The incident on the plane took place on 2 July and people have been talking about it ever since.
In footage recorded by several passengers, Gomas can be seen saying: "I'm getting the f*** off and there's a reason… I'm telling you right now that motherf***er back there is not real and you can sit on this plane, and you can die with them or not. I'm not going to."
The clip shortly went viral after being watched by hundreds of millions of people, and Gomas later apologized for the ordeal.
She has also spoken more openly about it recent weeks.
And she's not the only one touching on the subject either, as Saturday Night Live parodied the moment in a skit broadcasted on 18 November.
SNL rattled through some of the many clichés people see while traveling during the festive season.
Gomas is specifically named in the skit, though it is pretty obvious the show was referring to her viral outburst thanks to the iconic 'is not real' line.
It didn't take Gomas long to respond to the skit, taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, to provide her reaction.
Retweeting the clip, she penned: "Well, this is embarrassing," though it does look like Gomas found the funny side of it as she added a laughing face emoji.
It comes after Gomas recently revealed what she actually saw on the plane.
In an interview with Big Cat & PFT, she explained: "You know the reason I probably haven't come out yet is like - it's so cringe - I did not see anything. I mean, I think y'all knew that.
"The media... I said 'That motherf***er' not 'these' or 'the'."
Gomas said she got 'into a bit of altercation' which 'got out of control' and 'was not [her] best moment'.
"I mean it was actually a horrible moment. Absolutely mortifying," she added.
Gomas noted her saying 'that motherf***er isn't real' was an 'expression of speech' towards another passenger on the plane, rather than her pointing to an alien or ghost of some sort.
