She loves discovering and sharing viral videos, watching movies with her Muppet-like poodle mix named Cali, and doing the robot whenever possible.

As the virus continues to spread and kill people around the world, there are still those individuals who are seemingly dead set on downplaying the epidemic.

Ava Louise, a 21-year-old popular TikTok personality, was on a plane to Miami for spring break when she decided to post a video for her 23,000 followers to see.

Ava went into the plane’s bathroom and filmed herself kneeling down and licking the toilet seat! She said she wanted to show “there’s no danger and no one should be concerned” as part of a so-called “coronavirus challenge.”

“Please RT this so people can know how to properly be sanitary on the airplane,” she captioned the clip.

The video has since received hundreds of thousands of views as Ava admitted the upload helped her to “capitalize” off of the public’s fear.

Unsurprisingly, the video garnered a ton of backlash from viewers everywhere. The View host Meghan McCain went so far as to call for Ava’s arrest.

In the clip below, Ava speaks with Dr. Phil (she was a former guest of his show) and seemingly defends her behavior.
