Ann Coulter Has Twitter Tantrum On Delta Flight [VIDEO]

by Kim Quade on July 16, 2017

Everybody’s griping about airlines these days. They can’t seem to catch a break, but then again, complaints about air travel are also way up over last year.

Then, on Saturday, Delta Airlines went and angered Ann Coulter. In fact, she ranted that it was the “worst airline in America.”

Did Delta remove Coulter from her flight? No. They moved her to another seat. That set Coulter off because she said she paid for an “extra room seat,” probably due to her height.

But the infuriated Ann didn’t stop there. Oh, no, she took a picture of the woman who received her seat, as if it were the woman’s fault.

And, being as unfiltered as she is, Coulter posted it at Twitter. Frankly, I’m not sure why she was personally angry at this woman. Was it because a less-deserving short woman was sitting in her seat? Or maybe, just maybe, because the woman looks like she may be Hispanic?

Naaah.

Responses came in to Coulter’s Twitter rant. Oh, boy, did they! Here’s a sample:

Ooh, harsh! But wait, there’s more:

Some people even applauded the beleaguered Delta:

Now did Ann Coulter have a right to be angry at Delta? You bet. After all, she requested a specific seat, paid for it, and then was booted from it. Moreover, no explanation was given. That’s poor treatment as far as I’m concerned.

But she went waaay overboard when she took a picture of the woman who received her seat and tweeted it to her over 1 million followers. Moreover, she regarded that poor woman as if she was some sort of lesser being.

“Some woman.” Not a fellow human who deserves respect. Just “some woman” — who besides had nothing to do with the seat change. And as another anonymous “some woman” who also is short with dark hair, I find Coulter’s attitude arrogant and disgusting. In fact, I’d kinda like to throat-punch her, except I can’t reach that high.

Maybe next time Ann should just pony up some of her big bucks and just buy a ticket in first class. Not only will she get her coveted leg room, but she won’t have to deal with us plebeians who travel coach.

So, you chastise Coulter for showing a photograph of the woman who took her seat… then show a photograph of the woman who took her seat. D’OH!

The photo was on Twitter, which is a public platform. Coulter was the person who made the woman’s picture public. Big difference.

Ann said she took a picture of the woman to make a point she was not really tall or an air marshall. I can understand doing that so you can argue with Delta later, but why post it on Twitter?

Ann also did say the woman was a Mila Kunis look a like (which is sort of funny).

Of course, Ann is sorta a bitchy. Still, I would be pissed if I paid for that seat and got moved without explanation. You do want to complain enough at least to shame Delta into getting you a first class ticket or something to compensate you.

I remember Ann Coulter. Before she owned Delta she used to be on Fox News.

Who is that woman? Why was she given Coulter’s seat? Did Coulter get reimbursed the difference? Did the woman pay the same price? I’m 6’3″, and if I had to cram myself into a seat with less room, and therefore uncomfortable, I’d be pissed also, and I’d probably take a picture of the squatter that took my seat.

Sometimes you have to throw class, tact, diplomacy, grace, and finesse out the window, and just get outright aggressive when you’re not treated right. I see nothing wrong with what Coulter did.

It’s the fault of the airline for switching out the seats. NOT the poor lady that got thrown into the middle of this debacle.

Yes, if I’d bought a seat in advance, was seated, and then displaced for no reason whatsoever, I’d be mad too. But I’d have the class and restraint to deal with the airline ONLY and NOT drag the person who was handed the seat into the middle of it.

Furthermore, I wouldn’t have been so tactless and crass a full day later to dive further into the sewer by calling that poor lady “a dachshund-legged woman” on Twitter …as Ann did.

Thanks!

Really? You think the woman was just put in that seat against her will by the meanies at Delta? I doubt it.

Was Ann wrong to put the woman’s face on Twitter? Maybe. Given the way most people handle social media, it’s not surprising at all that she posted her pic.

As to Ann’s rant, in general, I think she’s right, but she isn’t an elegant enough person to really pull it off with great impact. So many people (including some on the right – the actual right, not the establishment ‘right’) see her as rude or classless that this gets dismissed, instead of generating an uproar.

The airlines really need to reconsider their descent into cattle car service. It’s the best way to guarantee you eventually fail.

I don’t know, and neither does anyone else in the public. Whether she was placed in that seat as part of a seat shuffle, or whether she requested a seat change doesn’t matter. The ultimate authority was Delta, not the woman, not Coulter. Considering that Coulter is allegedly a smart attorney, she should know this.

Forbes published an article yesterday which revealed that Coulter requested an exit seat, which gives more legroom. She did not get a lesser seat, but was moved to another exit seat. She did not lose her coveted leg room.

But not to worry. She’ll incorporate her snit in a chapter in her next screed book, which she can hawk on Hannity. Except she got into a feud with Hannity recently because she thought he didn’t give her enough air time. She accused him of cutting her off. Hmm, I’m seeing a pattern with Queen Ann.

Well, it’s not just “exit row”. It’s also an aisle seat – those cost extra, too, nowadays (on some flights, in part of the airplane). If she went aisle to window, even though it was an exit row, she lost a bit.

My point was, Why did Delta move that woman to a seat you have to pay extra for? Probably because she had some claim to it and made that point to the steward(ess) or gate agent. If they moved some random woman into that seat, it’s even more egregious. You can’t simply ignore the idea that the other woman might have raised a snit about it.

I agree with who the authority in the matter was. But, imo, you can’t assert the woman had nothing to do with it, unless there’s some evidence. Anyway, it was a minor critique that must have come across as more than I intended.

And yes, I understand a lot of folks don’t like Coulter. She’s not on the top of my list, either.

I haven’t flown Delta since 2005, when I nearly missed a flight back home from Baltimore. The flight was crucial, too. Won’t get into it here.

I now fly Southwest almost exclusively. Yeah, I know, cattle car. But I buy early check in, which is so worth the extra $15. And I always make it a point to be courteous to flight attendants and seat mates. It makes a long flight much more bearable.
