Woman who slapped passenger and spat at him over face mask is Baywatch actress

A so-called "Karen" charged with assault after attacking an 80-year-old man on a Delta Airlines for not wearing a mask while eating and causing him to bleed, has reportedly been identified as Ex-Baywatch actress and Playboy model Patricia Cornwall.

The former actress's shocking mid-flight tirade was caught on video by another passenger on a Christmas Eve flight from Tampa to Atlanta.

In it, she can be seen hurling abuse at her fellow passenger, spitting on him and slapping him across the face because he wasn't wearing a mask – but neither was she.

The footage showed Cornwall, 51, hulking over the unmasked seated passenger, who claims he was eating at the time of the attack, screeching: "Put your f****** mask on."

When the man tells her he is eating, she yelled at him to "stand" his "a** up".

He then shouts: "Sit down Karen… you're a god damned Karen, sit down."

A flight attendant tried to break up the in-flight fight, telling Cornwall to put on her own mask.

The one-time Baywatch actress ignored the request, repeatedly ordering the older man to "mask up" instead.
