A Black Man Sneezed on an Airplane And Triggered an Ebola Scare, Was Never Even Near Africa (Video)

A black man sneezed on an airplane…That’s not the beginning of a joke but the response sure fits a very demented punchline.

An African-American man on a flight from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania sneezed while on US Airways Flight 850 on October 8. The video posted to YouTube shows the result of what Patrick Navarez, who posted it says began as a rumor that a passenger “may have been in Africa and had Ebola.”

A full Hazmat crew barged onto the plane and marched an African-American man through the aisle as some of his fellow passengers booed.

“I ain’t from Africa, sh*t,” the man said as he passed the camera.

As it turns out, the man was right. Not only was he not from Africa, but after about two hours it was confirmed that he had never even been to Africa, and people were permitted to leave the plane.

Watch the aftermath, below:
