Skydiver shocked after realising instructor she was strapped to was wearing ‘arrest Fauci’ helmet
A woman who decided to go skydiving and says she was shocked to later discover that the instructor strapped to her was wearing a helmet that had “arrest Fauci” written on it.
This phrase is often used by right-wing critics of the US’s top infectious disease doctor and chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden’s research and advice on Covid-19 prevention and vaccination is flawed.
“I literally put my life in this guy’s hands, and we all loved him, but I didn’t read the writing on his helmet until… you’ve got to be f***ing kidding me,” she wrote.
After the tweet was seemingly removed shortly after posting, right-wing journalist Jack Posobiec managed to get a screenshot of the original tweet and re-shared it with a question addressed to Sefl.
“Hi @tracysefl! Why did you delete this?” he wrote.

As a result, this prompted many people on the right to pile in.
“I can’t tell what’s a worse self-own: that she tweeted it or that she deleted it,” someone wrote.
“It’s almost as if… maybe we shouldn’t judge a person’s character based solely off of their beliefs…” another added.
Posting another tweet, Sefl wrote, “Anyway, be kind,” which was met with a response from someone supporting her: “It’s funny that this lady is now attacked for having an opposing view by people who constantly complain about being targeted for having opposing views.”
