Tiffany Gomas, the woman in the viral 'not real' video, has finally spoken out.

On July 2, Gomas was removed from an American Airlines flight from Dallas to Florida after she accused another passenger of stealing her AirPods and claimed 'that motherf**ker is not real'.

"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 marketing executive is seen saying in footage recorded by several other passengers.

In the weeks since, the footage has been viewed by millions of people around the world and it has been the source of countless conspiracy theories and viral memes and parodies.

Now, in a video she posted on TikTok, Gomas has apologised for her actions.

“Hi everyone, it’s me, Tiffany Gomas, probably better known as the ‘crazy plane lady', which is completely warranted,” the nearly two and a half minute clip begins.

She continues: “My use of profanity was completely unnecessary, and I want to apologise to everyone on that plane, especially those that had children aboard.

“We all have our bad moments, um, some are far worse than others, and mine happened to be caught on camera for the whole world to see multiple times."

Gomas then says while she's enjoyed some of the memes, the internet's interest in her life has become 'invasive'.

"While it has been pretty comical for everyone and I have highly enjoyed so many of the memes, on the flip side it was very invasive and unkind. I don’t know what I would do without the love and support of my friends and family," she says in the video.

She continues: "They are loyal to a fault and I don’t know what I did to deserve them. I hope that I can use this experience and do a little bit of good in the world and that is what I intend to do.

"I hope that you guys can accept my apology and I can begin to move on with my life.”

At the end of the video, Gomas says she wants to use this experience to do some good in the world.

Last week, Gomas told the Daily Mail her life had been 'blown up' since the incident.

"It's frightening. Things go viral and everything changes," she told the publication.

"They're staking out my house. They're staking out my neighbours. They're going through my mail."

Gomas told the Daily Mail that 'so much of what's out there is inaccurate' but wouldn't comment further.

She also didn't offer much in the way of an explanation in the TikTok video.
