    An unidentified man shouts his support for president-elect Donald Trump on a flight bound for Allentown, Pennsylvania on Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2016.

    A man's boisterous salute to President-elect Donald Trump on a flight bound for Pennsylvania this week appeared to create an uncomfortable moment for his fellow passengers, a video of the encounter shows.

    "Donald Trump, baby," the unidentified man shouted, while clapping in the aisle of Delta Airlines flight 248. The flight was inbound to Allentown from Atlanta, Georgia, on Tuesday.

    When his fervent display received a tepid response from most of the 101 other passengers, the man then asked loudly "we got some Hillary b--ches on here?"

    "He's your president. Every goddamn one of you. If you don't like it, too bad," he went on to say of Trump before taking his seat.

    Passengers seen in the video wore expressions of annoyance or confusion over the public display.

    The video recorded by fellow passenger Emma Baum and uploaded to Facebook went viral on the social network. As of Friday evening, it had been watched 1.2 million times and shared to more than 14,500 timelines.

    In a statement to NBC News, a Delta spokeswoman apologized for the "disruption."

    "Our crews work hard to ensure flying is comfortable for all of our customers. We are currently investigating the incident," spokeswoman Ashley Black said.
