A couple weeks ago, a TikTok user cooked steaks in a toaster and people were outraged. Well, we were living in simpler times then because this TikTok user just shared a video of them cooking a steak on an airplane toilet. Hooray for innovation.
The video went viral quickly, with thousands commenting on its yuck factor. Within 24 hours, it was confirmed by Simple Flying that the video was a prank by serial prank artist Marcus Monroe. It was taken down by Monroe, however, the internet never forgets and the video is still circulating social media.

The video is introduced with a caption that says “They don’t have hot meals anymore on airplanes, so I came up with a solution.” The solution? Lighting a fire in the airplane toilet and cooking a steak.
Of course, there were a lot of reactions.
All that effort and still no seasonings. Heavens to Murgatroyd! https://t.co/98u0Kjt545

I’ve been pretty drunk…but never cook a steak on an airplane toilet during a pandemic drunk. Unknown date Chinese food from the back of the fridge? Sure…toilet steak? No thanks!

I just saw a TikTok of someone cooking a steak on an airplane toilet.
I mean, the whole fact that lighting a fire on an aircraft is a FEDERAL CRIME aside…

Southwest Airlines’ social media manager Austin even had an opinion on the matter.
One of those things that happens in airplane bathrooms:
1) Not cooking a steak -Austin

Most importantly, though, is that people pointed out how dangerous the stunt was — real or fake. We have enough problems already, we do not need people getting ideas.
Can they find the person in that earlier Tiktok (I can’t find it now) that was circulating with someone making a steak in the toilet area of an airplane? If they really did that, which is gross af, they are also a danger. They need a hefty fine.
