Ann Coulter Tweets Photo of Delta Passenger Who Got Seat She Wanted, Reactions Fly

Conservative commentator calls passenger “the dachshund-legged woman”

(This story has been updated to include comments from Delta Airlines.)

It became the “not so friendly skies” Saturday night when conservative pundit Ann Coulter boarded a Delta flight and the seat she had pre-booked was given to another passenger.

“Hey @Delta,” she tweeted. “You mind telling me why it was an ‘emergency’ to move someone else into the seat I had carefully chosen in advance and booked?”

And then Coulter persisted by tweeting a photo of the woman even though she was not to blame for the seat reassignment.

A Delta spokesman said Sunday, “Her new seat was in the same row, just not the exact seat she had selected,” adding that she was moved from an aisle seat to a window seat in the same exit row.

“We are aware of the customer’s comment, and reaching out directly to her to address the complaint,” the spokesman said.

In addition, the airline released a critical tweet to Coulter saying “your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.”

The six-foot-tall Coulter had booked an aisle seat for the extra legroom during the flight from New York to Palm Beach, Florida.

But before all of that info came out, many on social media didn’t appreciate Coulter’s ‘tude one bit… and the tweets began to fly.

“Delta f—d up so let me shame an innocent woman & her family – Ann Coulter,” tweeted @ajrodz92
