Tiffany Gomas, the Texas marketing executive behind the viral ‘that motherf***** is not real’ plane meltdown and self-described ‘crazy plane lady,’ allegedly assaulted a man after her viral incident.

New police footage was released of a man describing Gomas shoving her after the events of her July 2 viral video accusing a ‘motherf*****’ at the back of the plane of being ‘not real.’ 

Gomas, 38, now has over 107,000 followers on Twitter and 75,000 on Instagram since the controversy, 

Two days ago, Gomas launched a coordinated social media blitz hours after apologizing after referring to herself as ‘the crazy plane lady,’ which she called ‘her very worst moment.’ 

New footage, obtained by the New York Post, shows a bald man in a blue button-down shirt and grey slacks describing Gomas’ alleged attack in the terminal after she was dragged off the plane following her rant.

‘I was just sitting right here, and she just come and [makes shoving motion] pushing me and she [left],’ the man, who has not been identified, told police. 

He added he’s ‘OK’ after having been pushed in the chest by Gomas but the attack came out of nowhere, having never before interacted with the woman. 

Gomas seemed surprised and scoffed at the accusation in a separate video.

‘Wait, I assaulted someone? I’m 5-feet 2-inches, 120 pounds. Could I hurt you? How tall are you?’

The officer responds: ‘You could go to jail for it. You could get ticketed for it,’ the officer adds.

The victim declined to press charges.

The successful marketing executive is using her professional prowess to give her personal brand a makeover after she broke her silence to Dailymail.com last week.

Her return to public posting follows the extremely viral video of the fit she threw on an airplane traveling from Dallas to Orlando. 

The coordinated relaunch, ripe for monetization – which she has activated across her profiles – was first reported by DailyMail.com.

‘I apologize and take accountability for my actions, they were uncalled for,’ she wrote on Twitter,’ Gomas said of the incident. ‘My very worst moment was captured on video.’

Gomas was flying to Florida on July 4 weekend when she decided that the plane was unsafe, loudly demanding everyone on the flight evacuate. 

She said in the video posted Sunday to Twitter: ‘Although the memes have been amusing, the flip-side has been cruel. I’m thankful for my friends and family for supporting me through this. 

‘This experience has been life-altering and I hope to do good from it and promote positive mental health. Stay tuned!’

Gomas coordinated her post on Twitter with the relaunch of her Instagram page and YouTube channel. She also launched her webpage that tells people ‘coming soon.’

All posts except one on her Instagram page were posted inside of the last month, or edited inside of the last week. She has also chosen to follow just 16 specific accounts so far on her Twitter profile, which include uber successful podcasters like Joe Rogan, Jordan Peterson and Lex Fridman, as well as TMZ and Barstool Sports.

In the video she posted online, first published by TMZ, she said: ‘Hi everyone, it’s me – Tiffany Gomas, better known as the crazy plane lady. Which is completely warranted.’

She continued: ‘As you know, I have been unwilling to speak on the viral video, but I do finally feel that it’s time.’ 

While the relaunch of the marketing exec’s life came on Sunday, it’s not the first time she has spoken since the incident. Last week, DailyMail.com spoke to Gomas at her Dallas home.

‘My life has been blown up. It’s frightening,’ she said. ‘Things go viral and everything changes.’ 

Gomas continued: ‘First and foremost, I want to take full accountability for my actions.

‘They were completely unacceptable.

‘Distressed or not, I should have been in control of my emotions, and that was not the case.

‘My use of profanity was completely unnecessary and I want to apologize to everyone who was on that plane, especially those who had children aboard.’

She said she could not imagine ‘going through that and trying to explain to your kid what in the world just happened.’ 

Gomas, her Goyard bag under her arm, marched to the front of the plane on July 2 and told fellow passengers she was disembarking because the aircraft was not safe. 

The video showed a visibly shaken, and arguably crazed, Gomas telling passengers: ‘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.’

Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com from her home in Dallas, a recalcitrant Gomas said: ‘No one knows anyone else’s story, and no one should judge. No one knows what it’s like.’

Dressed in a fitted white tank and black leggings, her long hair slicked back in a bun, the owner of Uppercut Marketing, which promises its clients, ‘We make you look really really good,’ stood at the door of her $1.6million property and said she was consulting a lawyer.

‘They’re staking out my house. They’re staking out my neighbors. They’re going through my mail,’ she said. 

‘So much of what’s out there is inaccurate,’ but when asked for specifics she declined to comment further.

Passengers on Flight 1009 from Dallas Fort Worth to Orlando that day were forced to deplane after a ‘distraught’ Gomas suggested the plane was not safe, forcing staff to de-board the flight and re-screen the aircraft and passengers.

Gomas’s meltdown was apparently sparked by an argument with a relative with whom she accused of stealing her airpods.

‘The female then started claiming the aircraft was not safe and did not want the aircraft to leave due to her believing it would not make it to its destination,’ the police report states.

‘Due to the statements the flight attendants felt the aircraft needed to be rescreened. [The airline manager] explained that the passenger was denied boarding and they wanted her escorted to the public side.’

She marched off the plane but by the time TSA officers arrived to escort her back to the public side of the airport, the visibly upset woman was trying to get back on the flight.

Dallas Fort Worth Department of Safety police officers tried to speak with a ‘distraught’ Gomas but she refused to cooperate.

She was eventually escorted back to the non-secure side of the airport. 

Despite her earlier hysteria, she made repeated attempts to come back through TSA and into the boarding area.

Police later found Gomas sitting on the curb outside the airport waiting for an Uber. 

They issued her with a warning for Criminal Trespass, but she was neither charged nor taken into custody.

The marketing executive, who was seen clutching a $1,900 Goyard tote bag in the viral video, was deemed a ‘rising star’ in 2017, when she served as Vice President of Client Services at Elevate Brand Marketing.

She now heads up her own marketing firm, UpperCut Marketing, which boasts big name clients such as Xbox, Microsoft and others. Its public profiles were locked after the incident.

Gomas resides in a $1.6million luxury four-bedroom property complete with a swimming pool. 

She bought the home in the affluent neighborhood in January 2022 for $572,530, before renovating the entire space.
