Teen makes terrorism joke - American Airlines don't laugh

14 April 2014

A teenage girl thought it would be really funny to tweet a terror hoax to an airline.

She said: "@AmericanAir hello my name's Ibrahim I'm from Afghanistan. I'm part of Al Qaida and on June 1st I'm gonna do something really big, bye".

American Airlines responded to her tweet saying: "Sarah, we take these threats very seriously. Your IP address and details will be forwarded to security and the FBI."

Choas ensued. Have a look.


That was a bit stupid wasn't it?

Of course, it soon went viral, being retweeted more than 10,000 times. Then, she started cracking more jokes, at one point, saying: "I always wanted to be famous, but I meant like Demi Lovato famous, not Osama bin laden famous."

Her account is now suspended.
