Watch: Dallas’ Tiffany Gomas, viral American Airlines passenger, gets SNL treatment



Tiffany Gomas, the woman who went viral after a public outburst on an American Airlines flight at DFW International Airport, was poked at on a Saturday Night Live skit this weekend.

The segment, ahead of Thanksgiving, featured two TSA agents, played by SNL comedians Ego Nwodim and Bowen Yang, who introduced travelers during the “Thanksgiving Week Airport Parade.” Gomas, the 39-year-old who went viral after shouting, “But I am telling you, right now, that motherf—er back there is not real,” on American flight 1009 to Orlando on July 2, was one of the travelers featured, played by comedian Sarah Sherman.

“I’m telling you right now,” Sherman said while waving her hands like Gomas in the viral video. “That mother trucker, is not real.”

This five-minute and 19-second sketch ran on this past weekend’s episode with actor Jason Momoa hosting and musical guest Tate McRae.

This isn’t the first time the sketch comedy show has pointed to news with Dallas ties.

SNL also aimed at Dallas-based Southwest Airlines in January with a sketch about the carrier’s holiday meltdown, customer service and much-maligned technology systems.

Toyota was also featured in the same episode when cast members Andrew Dismukes and Jason Austin Johnson portrayed the owners of a fictional King Brothers Toyota dealership in Brenham stuck with an oversupply of cars and trucks because customers can’t get past a “stupid long” line to a new Raising Cane’s restaurant.

Gomas has relished in her 15 minutes of fame with guest appearances on Barstool Sports’ Pardon My Take podcast with Big Cat and PFT Commenter and a visit from Inside Edition, according to her Instagram. Barstool Sports is also selling an ugly Christmas sweater with Gomas pointing at Santa Claus while shouting her famous line.

On the podcast with Barstool, Gomas goes out to say that what she said was an “expression of speech” and that she didn’t actually see anything on the plane, debunking myths that spiraled after her outburst. She said she did not see anything.

Gomas created about a month after her viral incident, with a video alluding to using her new platform to draw attention to mental health. Since then, Gomas has not posted much about mental health and even revamped the site with photos of herself and a place for media inquiries.

“I’m not an athlete, I’m not a celebrity — I’m not any of those things,” Gomas said on the podcast. “I didn’t know I needed to make a statement. I didn’t know I needed to do these things. Yes, I’m in marketing, but I’m not in crisis management, I’m not in PR. I did what I thought was right and then it got a lot of backlash.”
