ATC makes a shocking 'Go around' Joke

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.

If it was some regional airport it wouldn’t be a big deal but it was at the worlds buisiest airport!

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.
