A male Spirit Airlines worker has been suspended by the carrier following a physical confrontation with a female traveler that was captured on video and has since gone viral.

The unidentified customer service representative also got into a shouting match with other passengers who tried to intervene and break up the original confrontation, leading to the suspension.

Here is part of the viral clip. Please note the language.

The incident has reportedly been viewed some six million times alone just on Twitter.

The context and the prelude of the confrontation are unknown as the video begins with the male Spirit worker screaming at the female passenger, “Don’t touch me! Don’t ever invade my personal space!”

Things only get wilder from there in yet another instance of airline or airport trouble. The woman also yells for the Spirit employee to “Get out of my face!” and then uses a homophobic slur. When another male passenger appears to try to de-escalate the situation by standing in front of the worker and pushing him away from the woman, the woman then reaches around the good Samaritan and slaps the airline worker in the head.

The male worker retaliates by slapping the woman and pushing her down.

“We are aware of this altercation. Our vendor at DFW has suspended the agent,” the airline said in a statement to Fox News. “Spirit Airlines does not tolerate violence of any kind, and we are working with local law enforcement to investigate this matter.”
