A man apparently employed as a pilot for American Airlines has posted an inspiring clip to TikTok. In the two-minute-long video, he explains that after an eighteen-year career as a pilot, he is now being forced to get vaccinated or lose his job.
Across the country, especially after the federal government’s sweeping vaccine mandate, Americans are getting fired for simply refusing the jab. The pilot believes this lack of choice to be extremely concerning for our country and the rights we hold dear.
At the end of the clip, he also gives other pilots and flight attendants a call to action: joining him and fellow industry rebels at US Freedom Flyers, an organization advocating for medical freedom for employees of airlines.

On Twitter, left-wing trolls have claimed that the man is not actually an employee of an airline, also denying that he is a pilot. The airline the man works for is officially unclear, adding to the speculation.
However, we dug into his TikTok account @cellsaucenutrition and found that he has taped videos for his supplement company in a large plane’s cockpit before, wearing an American Airlines lanyard:
The video comes just as Southwest Airlines has canceled thousands of flights over the past few days. According to the airline, the problems are rooted in the weather, but it is widely believed that the company is attempting to cover up a vaccine requirement strike from pilots.
