A woman was escorted from her plane in Dallas, Texas to cheers from passengers after screaming anti-gay abuse.

The woman - who was reportedly removed for refusing to wear a mask as per safety protocols - has been identified by Los Angeles Blade.

A 46-second video of the tirade, in which a member of the woman's party repeatedly uses the word "f****t", was uploaded to YouTube on Monday. It has since been deleted but is now doing the rounds on TikTok and Twitter.

"Nobody wants to listen to your bigotry - get off the plane!"

In the clip, the woamn is seen with her mask dangling around her mouth, and heard saying to an unseen passenger "like you corrupted Disney?"

She then yells: “You think I talk to my kids about same-sex marriage? No, we don’t talk about that. But if we all want to talk about it, let’s talk about it."

She was then removed to cheers from other passengers, while one yelled: "Nobody wants to listen to your bigotry - get off the plane!"

The woman's entire party was removed, including several children. The airline the incident took place on is unconfirmed.

According to the Blade, the woman has since scrubbed all her business and personal social media pages.
