A woman screamed for “the manager of the airport” after a scuffle at an American Airlines airport gate with a police officer. But a witness said the woman breached the secure door and deserved to be restrained.
Woman Screams For “The Manager Of The Airport” During Meltdown In DFW
The video, posted on TikTok, has been viewed nearly three million times. Please be warned, the language is crude and foul. I post it for context, but understand it is not safe for work or children.

While the TikTok user claims this happened at Indianapolis, Gate E38A is a giveaway this happened at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) instead (Charlotte, another American hub, also has a Gate E38A, but you can see the “DFW” logo on a luggage cart in the gate area).
So what happened? It isn’t clear, but Teri Ann (she identifies herself in this way) is seen on the other side of the glass complaining that she was placed in a choke hold by the airport police officer.
She appeals to passengers in the gate area to back her up, but no one does. Instead, one tells her she got what she deserved by “running through the door when you weren’t supposed to.”
It seems to me the police are quite restrained in the video…
I have a hard time referring to her as “Airport Karen” when her name is Teri Ann, but based upon the context we have it seems that her outrage was misplaced and calling for the manager of the airport…priceless.
(H/T: Kyle texted me the video last night…I see many have already covered it)
