The infamous “Cash Me Outside” girl said she only fought a fellow plane passenger because she was attempting to defend her mom.
Danielle Bregoli — famous for her “Dr. Phil” catchphrase “cash me outside, how bow dah? — was caught on video punching a woman on a plane following a verbal altercation that included the 13-year-old’s mother.
According to TMZ, Bregoli and her mom were boarding a Spirit Airlines flight out of Los Angeles on Monday when the mom got into an argument with the other passenger who thought she was taking too long to store her luggage in the overhead bin.
“My mom had breast cancer and she has this boot on, so my mom she can’t really fight,” said Bregoli in an interview with TMZ. So the teen stepped in.
Bregoli says the woman was being impatient and trying to get past her mom in the aisle and began “screaming” at her, which resulted in a yelling match. The 13-year-old said the woman then began hurling racial slurs at them, and Bregoli saw that the situation was escalating, so she jumped in.
The young Bregoli rose to fame after appearing on “Dr. Phil” in September. She spoke in a strange accent that she apparently picked up from “the streets,” and proceeded to call the audience “hos.” Dr. Phil took the audience’s side, and they applauded, and Danielle threatened to beat them all up, outdoors.
Or in her words, “cash me outside, how bow dah.”
The phrase went viral and was remixed into a catchy song — and countless memes emerged from it.
