Delta Airlines responds to Ann Coulter tirade: 'Your insults are unacceptable & unnecessary'

"'Why are you taking me out of the extra room seat I specifically booked, @Delta?' Flight attendant: 'I don't know, ' " she captioned one photo. It was only after the plane landed that she took to Twitter to criticize the airline.

It all began on Saturday afternoon. In doing so, she attacked just about everyone imaginable.

- Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) July 16, 2017 No one would think that 28 hours (& counting) for an explanation is due to @Delta's incompetence. She started out bashing their union representation. Yet Coulter's rant (which can be viewed through an apolitical lens, since she simply wasn't nice) brought genuine fire, for she attempted to shame a female passenger, who looked pretty unimpressed after Coulter raised hell over her extra-room seat being given away.

Delta noted that while there was some confusion with seating assignments during boarding, all passengers complied with a flight attendant's request to move to the seats noted on their respective tickets and the flight departed without incident.

But it got worse. Coulter also tweeted that she was still waiting for an explanation. How necessary was it to expose her to Coulter's numerous followers?

Was it really necessary to take photos of a young woman, without even bothering to ask her name? Perhaps it were a man, she wouldn't have minded. She also called her a "dachshund-legged woman".

The airline responded to Coulter's tweets with a statement on Sunday, promising to refund the commentator's $30 for pre-booking the seat. "Her actions are unnecessary and unacceptable", Delta said in a statement.

Twitter came out in support of Delta and blamed Coulter for blowing up the issue.

Ms. Coulter complained that the airline did not communicate the seat change before boarding.

Previously, when United Airlines drew criticisms for the rough-handling of a passenger and carrying him off the aircraft, Coulter was seemingly unsympathetic.
