Man pretends to have Coronavirus, causes flight to turn around

A man trying to make a viral video caused a flight from Toronto to Jamaica to turned around on Monday.  James Potok, a man who claims to be an artist found himself criminally charged after trying make a viral video on an airplane.  Potok said he was only trying to make a viral video when he stood up on Westjet flight headed to Jamaica from Toronto and asked for everybody’s attention.  When he received it, he proceeded to announce that he had just returned from “Hunan Province” suggesting that he may have contracted the Coronavirus.

Potok now says he’s sorry for ruining an entire flight.  If there was an idiot of the day award, it may well go to the artist James Potok.  Take a look the interview he gave Global News in the video below.
