Let me set the table: The following story comes on the heels of a federal judge overturning Joe Biden’s federal mask mandate for travel.

After the mask mandate was lifted, a guy on Twitter jokingly tweeted that flight attendants had ripped off their masks mid-flight and screamed “This is MAGA airspace.”

Hilarious satirical tweet, right?

…but a reporter at the New York Times believed him and reached out to write an article. His response was almost as good as his tweet. Here’s how it all went down:

First, @JradRabel tweeted: I boarded a plane today with my son and mid flight, the pilot announces that the mask mandate is over. Flight attendants pulled off their masks and sneezed directly into their hands while screaming “this is MAGA airspace”. My son turned to me in tears. I don’t know what to do.


Next, he tweeted the private message he received from New York Times reporter

Victoria Kim:

Victoria Kim: “Hi Jared. I’m a New York Times journalist, I’d love to speak to you over the phone about what happened on your flight this evening. Can you please give me a call at [omitted] or let me know how I can reach you? Hope this isn’t coming too late in your day. Thank you, looking forward to hearing from you.”

Jared’s epic response: “Hello Victoria. I would love to discuss the incident at your earliest convenience. I was pretty upset about the whole thing.

In a follow-up tweet, Rabel jokingly called for donations to “my son’s legal defense fund” and wrote that his son now identifies as a girl, “so his pronouns are she/her.” His Twitter bio says he is a Christian and a “libertarian on the old right.”

While every Twitter commenter recognized Rabel’s post as satire, Kim, who yesterday wrote a Times piece on the end of the mask mandate, did not.

“Hi Jared, I’m a New York Times reporter, I’d love to speak to you over the phone about what happened on your flight this evening,” Kim wrote.

Rabel kept the satire going for a few lines before revealing the obvious joke.

Unfortunately it’s satire that only someone at the NYT would believe. In my time of complication, I was wondering how your team deals with the multitude of false stories that you peddle out daily to use as political propaganda and if you could give me advice on how to take my satire to the next level? Best wishes.”

Epic. If you want to follow this guy, here’s a direct link to his Twitter.
