·1 min read

A Southwest Airlines pilot had to make an unconventional announcement last week on a flight to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, when, according to a TikTok user, passengers persisted in sending him nude photos.

"So here's the deal, if this continues while we're on the ground, I'm going to have to pull back to the gate, everybody's going to have to get off, we're going to have to get security involved and [your] vacation is going to be ruined," he said in a clip posted to TikTok.

The user, @teighmars, noted in the caption that Southwest "takes airdropping nudes very seriously." The TikTok has been viewed more than 2 million times, with many commenters saying the pilot sounded like an exhausted father on a road trip.
