Though the “motherfuckers” on her July American Airlines flight may have not been real, the Karen from that viral airplane video sure as hell is.
Weeks after her infamous 'that motherf***er back there isn't real' real rant delayed an Orlando, Florida-bound flight by three hours, personally pissed off Carrot Top and horrified the internet, the woman in question has finally been identified as marketing higher-up Tiffany Gomas.
The 38-year-old Texan, who was first publicly ID-ed by Daily Wire reporter Bree A. Dail, has long been a player in the Dallas marketing scene before her viral foray, which led to her receiving a ticket for criminal trespassing. Gomas, who lives in the Lakewood area of east Dallas, earned the title of a “rising star” back in 2017 as Elevate Brand Marketing’s Vice President of Client Services before starting her own company, Uppercut Marketing.
While at first, it seems Gomas leaned into her viral fame, taking to Twitter to speak on her experience in several since removed Tweets — “there are things in this world that aren’t real!” she allegedly wrote in one post, per screenshots archived by TikToker @lukegramith — the exec’s socials have since gone dark.

But even with her apparent social media hiatus, several Twitter users have flocked to the platform to express just how important she’s been to the 2023 meme zeitgeist.
“Are any of us real? Perhaps not. Tiffany Gomas taught us to question reality. Our Time Person of the Year” joked @stephenleary.

“And the mystery has been solved,” wrote @TheKevinDalton. “Welcome Tiffany Gomas to the Internet Hall of Fame.”
Though Gomas may be in for a world of internet infamy now that her secret has been revealed, at least she got some God-tier fan art out of it.
