People do a whole lot of weird acts to go viral but some acts are just too much sometimes. One of the people who went overboard is an aspiring influencer from the United States of America James Potok. The aspiring influencer got a pretty nasty reaction on Monday for a prank that he tried to do.
James Potok was on a WestJet plane to from Toronto in Canada to Montego Bay in Jamaica when he stood up and did a prank using the sickness that has been haunting. He told people on the airplane that he was recently at Wuhan in China, which means he might have contracted the Coronavirus, in the middle of the flight. He was wearing a pink hoodie and a surgical mask. The man says he didn’t think that he would get the response he got from the plane.
However, he wanted to be viral online. He says he thought that it would bring some kind of reaction from people on the internet. The aspiring influencer says, “I figured it would invoke some kind of reaction – not on the plane, more people seeing on social media going, “Wow, this kid’s got some balls’ or ‘This kid is crazy’, whatever it is.” His prank, however, had the airplane doing emergency landings. The airplane had to go back with over 250 people into a flight to Pearson International Airport. The man was arrested after he was investigated by medical professionals, the ‘Business Insider’ reports.
