Ann Coulter’s claim about her experience with Delta just isn’t flying with Chris Evans.
“Captain America” star Evans took time out of his Monday to razz conservative commentator Coulter, after she claimed she had spent $10,000 worth of her time choosing the seat she was eventually moved from.
“It cost me $10,000 of my time to pre-select the seat I wanted, investigate type of plane & go back periodically to review seat options,” Coulter wrote on Sunday.
It took Evans a little while to hit Coulter with a zinger, but when he did, it was well-landed.
“I totally get it. It costs me 75k to brush my teeth,” Evans shot back. “I must pre-select a brush, investigate types of paste, and periodically spit bulls—.”
Coulter went ballistic on social media over the weekend after she was moved from the aisle seat on a flight from New York to Palm Beach, Florida, to a window seat in the same exit row.
The commentator and best-selling author had tweeted a photo of the passenger who was seated in her pre-booked seat for an unexplained emergency and ripped the passenger in another tweet as “the dachshund-legged woman.”
“Hey @Delta,” Coulter also tweeted on Saturday. “You mind telling me why it was an ‘emergency’ to move someone else into the seat I had carefully chosen in advance and booked?”
“So glad I took time investigate the aircraft & PRE-BOOK a specific seat on @Delta, so some woman could waltz at the last min & take my seat,” she added.
Coulter’s Twitter tirade prompted Delta to take the commentator to task on Sunday, saying that her “insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.”
