A self appointed "up and coming rapper," James Potok got the attention he wanted. Potok was headed for Jamaica when he revealed that he has "corona virus." Moments later, the pilot announced to the passengers, who were more than half way to Jamaica, that they would be returning to Toronto for a "public health concern." Potok can be seen in the video wearing a mask and gloves.
Once the plane landed back in Toronto, Potok was examined and deemed "healthy." The main issue, Potok made it all up for the publicity and to "create a viral moment." Below you can see him speaking with a news reporter about the lie just to get attention.
