Watch this controller at Atlanta make a joke to an inbound aircraft which was a bad idea from the start. There’s a time and place for jokes, this obviously wasn’t one of them. (Note this isn’t a new video).
It seems an FAA investigation took place after this, I’m not sure of the outcome to the controller but I can take a good guess.

that moment of silence when the Delta pilot said you sent us around, he new he messed up 😂
Don’t think I have even seen such an idiot.
If it was some regional airport it wouldn’t be a big deal but it was at the worlds buisiest airport!
Matt Cochran caught this on film:
That’s not a good joke. The airplane with call sign “Heavy” should be prioritized when landing and taxi.
Based On ATC Rules By FAA.
He realized, “Oh, crap. I’m gonna get fired.”
I feel bad for the guy. That’s sad, but stupid
Reminds me of the movie “Airplane!”.
