Man Airdrops Photos Of His Private Parts On Southwest Plane, Gets Exposed

A Southwest Airlines passenger was accused of airdropping photos of his genetalia to other passengers on the plane.

AirDrop is a way for Apple devices to share photos. Other Apple users can choose to receive or not receive photos, or limit who can send them to you. But many leave the setting open, though I don’t know anyone that would accept files sent by someone they did not know.

A woman sitting across from him got an airdrop notification on her phone. She saw the man airdropping photos on his phone. She looked at the photo and asked if he meant to send it. She reports that, why yes, he said he did mean to pull an Anthony Weiner on the flight. She brought it to the attention of the crew.


Lawrence Martin from Texas, grossssssss. I saw his ipad had airdrop open so I knew it was him, and yes, i sure did make a scene

When a flight attendant asked him why he did it, he responds “sounded like fun.” What’s striking to me is that he just admits he did it and offers ‘my apologies’. The crewmember responds “so.. that’s gonna be an issue.”

The passenger who filmed this reports speaking to an FBI agent after the flight, and reports that the father of a child who “was sent” but did not accept the airdrop was “ready to fight.” And they videotaped this ending: asking the man if he has a TikTok account. He doesn’t. “Oh darn.”


Tldr: we got airdropped some n00ds and Larry acted like it was a casual Friday on our flight to Denver

He exposed himself and then he was exposed.

Last year United deplaned a flight after a passenger airdropped a photo of a toy gun. The year before a flight was delayed due to airdropping porn. In 2019 this happened on Southwest too.

Then there was the time that the CFO of an airline told a court he was just trying to delete porn from his work computer and that’s how relevant files in the case got erased accidentally.

  1. Years ago on a LAX-MIA flight, a child sitting diagonally from me had a photo of a pile of human feces and was airdropping it from his mom’s iPad to everyone he could. He was giggling the entire time, airdropping the photo over and over again. Was all fun until I (and others) turned airdrop off/private. Guess we were lucky it was just poop….

  2. @David Miller, most serial killers and child molesters are statistically more like to actually be Republican Trump supporters.

  3. What would be the charge? Legally, would it be any different than if he had airdropped a similar photo that he had gotten of the internet rather than a photo of himself?

  4. David Miller,

    Before you call anyone out, you better look to your white trash trump brethren.

    Yes. Animals like you and your family belong in jail. Does your pea brain remember the events of January 6th? Or your draft-dodging orange fuhrer grabbing women by the genitalia and bragging about it?

    You are a GD clown.

  5. K Helldoge – As expected, your moronic asinine response about this issue has nothing to do with this issue – you are just another lying media believer who has no common sense and is putting your stupidity out there for all to see. You are what is wrong with America. If you desire to see a clown, look into a mirror.

  6. @ Davis Miller — There is no more disgusting, immoral person on the planet than Donald Trump.

  7. Gene – you are full of shit and too stupid too realize it. How do you like you $7 a gallon gas and the millions of illegals in America? How about the economy? Afghanistan? Inflation? Damn you are stupid – keep watching CNN and remain ignorant to reality.

  8. @Gene – You’ve been sheltered. I’m not DT fan, but there are certainly worse than him around.

  9. That deteriorated quickly.

    And all I was going to comment on was, how do they know it was a man? All we really know is it was a person in possession of a penis. Or is that so early June 2022?

    Why does anyone have Airdrop open to the world? And it doesn’t come that way, you have to set it that way.

  10. Yeah, comments section could have been gold here, but instead it’s lame AF. There should be all sorts of one-liners such as:
    “well that wasn’t such a *big* deal”
    “bonehead move”
    “he really boned that”
    “Lawrence ought to face a stiff penalty/hard time”

    And those aren’t even good at all – I’m sure everyone on here could do much better!

  11. How do you know it was a man? Did they ask the person their pronoun? Us men keep getting a bad rap and it may have been a woman!

  12. Based on the grey goatee on this boomer, I’m guessing it was a die hard GOP supporter and future Herman Cain Award winner!

  13. Bravo to this becoming yet another libs v Trumpies comment cluster… from the very first comment! Like she really should have asked for his party affiliation while on camera! Can’t just condemn a random pig being a random pig, gotta surmise who he voted for too because it’s impossible for anyone here to imagine that *gasp* human beings can be awful regardless of voting affiliation. The other side is evil and we are as pure as the driven snow!

    I only had someone try and airdrop something on a plane to me once, back in February on a UA 772. I obviously did not accept, and then remembered to turn my airdrop settings back to CONTACTS ONLY.

  14. Joey, agreed. Such dogmatic commenters are OCD.

    Certainly, it could not have been former Congressman Mark Foley (R-FL) who sex-texted teenage boys. No decent and *upright* conservative would do such a thing . . . on a plane. On the House floor perhaps . . . but NOT on a plane.

  15. Larry still lives with his 86 year old mom.
    At least Larry was flying within his means on an all kettle class airline.

  16. Hey David Miller – Larry Craig was a bonerfide (see what I just did there) conservative. Seems that degens and sociopaths can exist on both sides of the stall partition. Get over yourself.

    Borrow your own advice…If you have nothing of value to say, keep out of it. And just FYI – You have nothing of value to say.

  17. This blog is ample evidence that Trump derangement syndrome is incurable and terminal. Democrats are simply incapable of moving to the current because they are shackled to the past. They can’t even carry on a conversation about airplane travel without invoking Trump. In their mind Trump is the cause of everything from the price of tea in China to Pelosi’s vaginal itch.

  18. @DFWSteve
    That includes David Miller who never has anything good to say unless it’s about that lying A-hole Chump and I’m a former Republican and now a proud Independent. Just as a reminder we will all get over Chump when he gets his military parade he’s always wanted. You know, the one down Pensy Avenue with the saddle turned backwards with all the red hats on both sides of the avenue. Fond farewell shithead!

  19. Gene and K Helldoge are still liberal brainwashed ID8TS!!!David Miller thank you for reality here…

  20. The majority of DemocRats are too ignorant to have a sane thought – they rely on the lying media to do the thinking for them. President Trump was the best thing to happen to America in decades – don’t agree, then look at what brain dead Biden and his traitorous administration have done to America and Americans is just 18 months.

  21. @David Miller
    The only traitorous admin as you call it happened on Jan. 6th with Chump cheering on BLM and Antifa to break down the doors of Congress and hang Mike Pence. But would really like to see Chump hung upside down like Mussolini and his gf. Chump would probably break the rope from too much McDonalds.

  22. @David Miller\
    You can dish it out all you want but you can’t take it. Kind of like the great war general “Bone Spurs Chump”

  23. Trump quotes:
    -Covid is just like a cold, it’ll be gone by Easter
    -Just get some bleach in you to wash it away
    -I really admire Putin
    -We are going to give you the best healthcare package
    -Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election
    -Article 2 of the Constitution lets me do whatever I want
    -I had the yugest inauguration crowd of all time
    -I had more electoral votes than anyone since Ronald Reagan
    -Those are all good people who marched from the Ellipse to the Capitol on Jan 6th

  24. Often STUPID- Trump FACTS; lowest unemployment rates in decades, greatest economy (pre covid) in decades, secured Southern border, energy independent, lowest inflation in decades, worldwide respect. Those are just a few of the actual results of his Presidency. The shit list you post is just more of the twisted lies the lying media fed you and the other morons who are too stupid to comprehend reality.

  25. Worldwide respect from whom? Name some countries. Instead they were all laughing at the idiot.

  26. David Miller, let’s accept the news media is compromised. It is. But, what are we to make of the first hand testimony of virtually every person in Mr. Trump’s inner circle — including his daughter? Just asking. (For the record, I am not a liberal Democrat.) Not that this has anything to do with the subject at hand . . . or in hand.

  27. You can’t fix STUPID. Sad that even after watching several weeks of testimony from honest republican patriots who supported trump but loved our country more, people like David Miller are too far gone to ever accept the truth about trump. It must be very hard to accept that the person you were loyal too played you. You won’t recover though until you can accept that fact… were conned. And Reno Joe, it has nothing to do with party affiliation, it has everything to do with gullibility.

  28. Valinda – you are just another lying media idiot that would not know the truth if it ran over you. I guess being conned meant- energy independence, secure Southern border, greatest American economy (pre covid) seen in decades, lowest unemployment in decades, – yeah, if this is being “conned” then keep conning me. God you are stupid.

  29. Valinda, agreed. Joey said the same thing and I agreed with him as well.

    Adolf Hitler did great things for the German economy but . . .

    ” . . . in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.

    It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.”

    But, back to the real point of the article . . .

  30. @ DFWSteve. Thanks. You taking the high road in your comments says a lot about you. While I do basically agree with David Miller, IMHO his points would have much more influence if didn’t imitate the ignorance displayed by those who attempt to insult him. David has knowledge and wisdom . . . his detractors have neither. Never ever confuse knowledge with wisdom.

  31. One Trippe – Regrettably, there are times one must descend down to the level of those who are too ignorant to comprehend the truth that is staring them in the face when explaining the obvious.

  32. If a person is in fact “too ignorant to comprehend,” no matter what you say, the person will not comprehend. They are not going to change. You are not going to change. So, why even engage the person? Spare yourself the aggravation. Why not devote your time to a pleasurable activity? How about them Yankees? Golf? Or, for a change of pace . . . how about travel?

  33. The first comment in this thread- saying the perp is a liberal animal- is based on no evidence, just hate speech. This blog has been ruined by idiots like this. I suppose that’s why Points Guy got rid of comments.

  34. LK – stating the truth is not hate speech. You attempt to sidetrack the content is a typical lying liberal tactic- and what I just said here is not “hate speech” but is a fact.

  35. Would it burst anyone’s bubble to learn that Mr. Martin is registered as a Republican in Texas? Of course, he could be a liberal Republican.

  36. @davidmiller are you related to that creepy vampire steven miller? lololol what a clown you are thanks for making me laugh so hard reading this thread.. SAD!!!
