*Video of a couple’s disruptive argument onboard an American Airlines flight has gone viral, showing a Hispanic woman hurling the N-word at her non-black male companion (husband?) and hitting him over the head with a laptop.
Sunday’s flight from Miami to Los Angeles was still at the gate in Miami International Airport when the fight broke out and a couple had to be removed. A passenger posted footage of part of the fight on Twitter, telling Yahoo that “This happened right before takeoff, and the flight was delayed 2 hours. A woman on the flight claimed to have seen them fighting already at the gate,” Julia Scorupco said.
The irate woman in the video has been identified by Miami-Dade Police Department as “Mrs. McLemore,” and she was reportedly fighting her partner over his wandering eye.

“You want to try to f—ing look at other women, n—–? Nah, f— you,” McLemore could be heard saying to her male companion. It’s not clear if he’s her husband or boyfriend.
The clip shows the man getting out of his seat, but she follows and continues to beat him, calling him the N-word as crew members attempt to escort them off the plane. Most starling is the moment she slams a laptop over his head.
Miami-Dade Police Department told Yahoo the couple was on a connecting flight to Los Angeles from Ecuador.
They also confirmed that a search for the woman after she deplaned “yielded negative result,” she did not answer her phone. The man refused to cooperate with officials, Yahoo reported.
American Airlines issued the following statement to The Western Journal about the now-viral video:
“Prior to departure from the gate on Sunday at Miami International Airport, two passengers who were traveling together were involved in a dispute. Law enforcement was requested, and both passengers were removed from the aircraft.”
“We thank the American crew who worked quickly to defuse the situation. Their actions resulted in a safe environment for all of our passengers.”
