Another Viral Video Has Divided The Internet

February 13, 2020 / Posted by:

The internet has divided once again, and this time it is all thanks to a couple of American Eagle passengers on the same flight. A woman named Wendi Williams (not this one, a different one) was on a 90-minute flight from New Orleans to Charlotte when she decided to recline her seat. Sometimes when you recline your seat, nothing will happen. Other times, the person behind you will not appreciate you exercising your right to recline your seat and will declare war on you. That’s what happened to Wendi. Wendi claims that a man repeatedly punched her chair after she reclined it, and she responded by recording him.

It seems like Wend is more angry at American Airlines (maybe because a lawyer told her to be) than the passenger who made like a sedated Million Dollar Baby and kept nudging her chair. via HuffPo:

Wendi Williams said that on Jan. 31, she took a flight on American Airlines subsidiary American Eagle from New Orleans to Charlotte, North Carolina. During the trip, when she first reclined her seat the man behind her asked that she wait to do so until he was done eating.

She accommodated the man and then reclined the seat after he was done, according to Fox News. However, she said the man reacted by repeatedly punching the back of her seat, which she captured on video.

Wendi tweeted her side of the saga, claiming that he Chris Brown’d her chair several times, but turned down his fisting to “kinky turtle on Ambien” when she started to record him:

Wendi got a flight attendant involved, but according to her, the flight attendant responded with an eye roll:

Wendi also says:

“It was scary and very painful” Williams said, claiming that she lost time at work, had to visit a doctor, receive X-rays and suffered headaches because of the incident.

And she goes on to say that since she wasn’t getting any help from AA about her complaints, she threatened to take it to the FBI:

I’m sure the FBI will drop everything and rush right to her aid. She did receive some support from Twitter users:

But there were some who had no sympathy for Wendi:

A spokesperson for American Airlines gave the following statement:

“We are aware of a customer dispute that transpired on American Eagle flight 4392, operated by Republic Airways on January 31. The safety and comfort of our customers and team members is our top priority, and our team is looking into the issue.”

Honestly, this won’t be an issue in the near future. I’m sure that soon, airlines will rip out all the seats and shove as many people as possible in like an overcrowded subway car. And when we cry about not being able to breathe, an oxygen mask from above will drop in front of us, but only after we toss a flight attendant a credit card to pay the $25 breathing charge.
