Mike check 1, 2, 1, 2 — she’s an unruly passenger terrorizing the flight attendant crew. 

Armed with a microphone headset and an inflated ego, an unnamed woman is going viral with over 1.9 million social media views for disrupting a commercial flight with her unsolicited COVID-19 musings over the weekend. 

“I brought my microphone, I’m going to use it,” insisted the freakish flyer, whose amplified antics were caught on camera and shared by singer Jawny. 

The pop musician close-captioned his trending TikTok — which has been hilariously nicknamed “Karens in the Air” — with notes reading: “We are in the air right now,” and “I bought in-flight WiFi just to post this.”

Jawny did not respond to The Post’s request for a comment. 

But in his video, flight attendants are seen attempting to stop the “Karen” —  wearing a white button-up blouse, dark blue bottoms and a colorful neck scarf — from giving an unauthorized pandemic lecture by threatening to confine her in handcuffs. 

“You’re gonna cuff me?,” yelled the brunette as one flight crewmember ran to retrieve the restraining apparatus. “I don’t need to be cuffed. I’m completely harmless.”

The uncontrollable orator then noted that her attractiveness gave her the right to cause a sky-high scene. 

“I think you’re all enjoying this because I’m not terrible to look at,” she said to a resounding cry of annoyed sighs from other passengers — who also accuse her of “wanting attention.”

The entire plane’s protests notwithstanding, the woman continued pontificating about the pandemic, claiming the COVID outbreak started as a result of the “internet” and the overuse of “stupid [electronic] devices.”

But after a few more seconds of ranting, flight attendants ushered the woman back to her seat, allowing her to gather a carry-on dog carrier, before detaining her to the rear of the aircraft. 

“My dog has better sense than any of you,” she said while being escorted away from her captive audience. “In fact my dog could be a better God for you people.”

TikTok watchers took to Jawny’s comments section with jokes about the woman for flying off the handle mid-flight. 

“That no fly list gonna be so long it’ll look like a CVS receipt,” one person teased, joking that the Karen’s erratic behavior could prevent her from ever flying again. 

“Flights nowadays starting to feel like a normal day on the NYC subway,” another man said, likening the disruptive display to the spectacles that typically happen on Big Apple transit. 

So far, the woman’s identity remains unknown.
