An Coulter Takes On Delta Over Seat Dispute

If you get on conservative commentator Ann Coulter’s bad side, there’s a good chance you’re going to hear about it. That’s the situation Delta Airlines finds itself in after a dispute erupted over seating arrangements.

As the Daily Mail shares, the outspoken Coulter has not suddenly developed a subtle side while discussing the row.

Coulter paid extra for a seat with some extra leg room, but she was then forced to move without proper explanation. As you can imagine, that didn’t sit too well with her. She’s been ripping Delta ever since, and she claims that the airline’s decision to move her seat was political in nature.

“BEWARE OF @DELTA REPUBLICANS,” she shared on social media. “Texts from a flight attendant: It was political. @DELTA still won't give a reason.”

That’s a pretty major allegation, but Coulter has shared some additional details to back up her claims.

“She then included the exchange, with no names being shared to show who was sending the texts. The first text also starts halfway through a sentence, with the rest cut off, and reads: '...someone at the Delta desk saw Ann’s name and picked it on purpose? Is there a randomizer when it comes to these situations?” the Mail shares. “Unknown person number two, who Coulter claims is a flight attendant, then responds to unknown person number one: 'No, someone noticed her, and just wanted to be a jerk and make her life miserable.”

There’s been no confirmation on the information that Coulter has presented thus far. If that’s, in fact, the way it went down, you can be sure we haven’t heard the last of it. Politically motivated seating decisions would be an unfathomable headache for the company to have to deal with.

“Unknown one says that is 'what I figured,' at which point unknown two states: 'Yeah, I said that on several secret FB groups of [XXX Airline] employees, they were all hating on Ann, and when I defended her, we went back & forth,'” the Mail continues. “And at the end, they acknowledged that it was a Delta employee who targeted Ann on purpose.”

After sharing those down and dirty details, Coulter was quickly back on social media to continue pounding on Delta.

“After all those snarky @Delta tweets, it's more likely they had a reason -- and it was a bad one. @Delta still not saying,” she wrote.

For Delta’s part, the company has offered to refund Coulter the extra fee she paid for her preferred seating arrangement. Coulter is doing herself little favors in the ongoing argument by making inflammatory remarks, but that comes with the territory when she’s all riled up. She shared a photo of the woman that was moved to her seat, referring to that passenger as 'dachshund-legged.'

Delta is not taking too kindly to being verbally assaulted so much, noting that "your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.”

We’ll have to wait and see how this plays out, but it seems to be far from over.
