David Walliams was reportedly involved in an argument with a passenger who appeared to have filmed him on a flight to Dubai.
the previous Lesser Britain Star was spotted in the VIP Emirates First Class Bar by a TikTok user named Jamie McDonald.
He claimed on social media that he got into an “argument” with Walliams in the passenger lounge after he started recording a video of him on his phone.
“I just had a fight with David Walliams in the first class lounge about this video,” he wrote alongside a video of Walliams.
Subsequent clips captured on the flight purportedly show Walliams seated in a pod next to him (the Britain’s Got Talent the judge’s face is not visible).
In another clip, McDonald claims Walliams “reported” him. “I don’t know if I can fly with Emirates again. What a bean,” he wrote.
In the comments, people came out in defense of Walliams, with many arguing he has a right to privacy when travelling.
The Independent has reached out to Walliams representatives for comment.
A recording surfaced last month of Walliams making sexually explicit comments about a Britain’s Got Talent Candidate.
The comedian and children’s author apparently made the comments during an audition show filmed at the London Palladium in January 2020.

Walliams apologized for the “disrespectful comments” that reported him calling an older contestant “c***” on multiple occasions.
An ITV spokesman said Walliams’ future in reality shows is “very up in the air”.
“The jury for Britain’s Got Talent 2023 will be announced in due course,” the spokesman said PA news agency. “Whether David will be at the show next year is still up in the air.”
