This Is Why You Don't Joke About Ebola

Not. That. Funny.

A passenger aboard a U.S. Airways flight to Punta Cana learned the hard way why you can't make jokes about Ebola.

The 54-year-old man, who apparently had a sneezing attack aboard the plane, joked haphazardly, "I have Ebola, you are all screwed," according to Dominican paper Diario Libre.

Flying from Philadelphia to Punta Cana, the flight had to be examined by a hazmat team upon landing. Patrick Narvaez, who uploaded the video, said that the remaining people were held for two hours on the plane. 

After being examined, it was determined the man did not have Ebola. He was sent back to the United States.
