‘Cash Me Outside’ Girl Attacks Airline Passenger, Claps Back in New Video
Thirteen-year-old problem child Danielle Bregoli shot to viral fame on ‘Dr. Phil’ with her catchphrase, ‘Cash me outside, howbow dah?’ She apparently did just that on a flight.
How about this?
Danielle Peskowitz Bregoli—better known as the “Cash Me Outside” girl after her mouthy appearance on Dr. Phil last year went viral—has given her side of the story on social media Tuesday morning after she was allegedly pulled off a Spirit Airlines flight following an attack on another passenger.
Bregoli, who became an online celebrity after telling Dr. Phil to “cash me outside”—her mom explained that the phrase “means she’ll go outside and do what she has to do”—posted a video to her popular Facebook and Instagram pages this morning in which she appears to be explaining how that fight on a Spirit jet went down. TMZ reports that, according to law-enforcement sources, while Bregoli and her mother were boarding a Spirit Airlines flight Monday night from LAX, her mother, who is currently walking in a cast, “got into a dispute” with another passenger who felt Bregoli’s mother was taking too long boarding. “Danielle says the other woman put her hands on her mom, and that’s why she had to ‘cold-cock’ the allegedly impatient passenger, according to law enforcement,” reported TMZ. “After Danielle uncorked the punch, the alleged victim made a citizen’s arrest until police arrived and took all three off the plane. We’re told police agreed there was mutual combat, made no arrests, and everyone involved decided their lawyers would handle it from here.”
In her online video, using a pillow to represent the woman with whom she fought, Bregoli says that she only “hit her one time” and says that her mom “put her hands on her throat and pushed her back” after the woman challenged Bregoli, who is all of 13 years old, to a fight.
“She got her ass whupped by a 13-year-old,” Bregoli, who has close to 800,000 followers on Facebook and 3 million on Instagram, concludes by saying.
Another video posted on Instagram (which was later deleted, but uploaded by TMZ), which claims to be cellphone footage of the altercation, shows Bregoli screaming, “What’s up bitch” in the crowded and chaotic airplane.
The fight is the latest bizarre turn in the unlikely media career of 13-year-old Bregoli, who became a poster girl for teenage rebellion (and absurdity) after she appeared on Dr. Phil with her mother, who wanted to confront the teen’s “out-of-control” behavior.
Instead of calling a halt to Danielle's behavior, the segment, which was entitled “I Want to Give Up My Car-Stealing, Knife-Wielding, Twerking 13-Year-Old Daughter Who Tried to Frame Me for a Crime,” made Bregoli an internet star after she uttered what would become her signature line: “Cash me outside, howbow dah?”
The watercooler phrase has been widely sampled by DJs and producers, and taken on a second life as a meme. As for Bregoli and her mother, Spirit Airlines informed TMZ that they've been banned from their flights for life.
