‘Karen’ caught on video slapping passenger in Delta flight tirade

A crazed woman was arrested by the FBI after she went on an expletive-laced tirade and slapped a fellow passenger aboard a Delta flight from Tampa to Atlanta.

The unhinged woman — identified as Patricia Cornwall — was arrested by the feds after the wild incident aboard Flight 2790 on Thursday, Atlanta police said in a statement.

She was accused of causing a midair “disturbance” that led to the “injury of fellow passengers and Delta employees,” police said.

A video tweeted by ATL Uncensored shows the woman standing in the aisle cursing at a male passenger as they exchange heated words.

“Put your f— mask on!” she yells, as her own mask sits below her chin.

“Sit down, Karen!” he shoots back at the woman.

“Mask up!” she shouts.
