The incident took place on January 2 during a flight from Las Vegas to Newark. According to a report by the Daily Mail, Norma Rodgers, a registered nurse from New Jersey who was seated next to the unnamed blonde flyer, posted the video of the tirade online.
“Oh my goodness, I don’t know how I’m going to do this for the next four hours,” said the blonde woman. “This is just impossible cause they’re squishing me. Like, friggin’ just unbelievable.”
“I can’t sit here because they’re both so big on left and right,” she continues. “I can’t even sit here.”
“At least they’ll keep me warm,” the blonde woman says sarcastically.
The blonde flyer continues her meltdown, making remarks about the male passenger to her right, who is believed to be McKinley “Mac” Frink, who was traveling with Rodgers.
Rodgers then responds to the woman, saying, “B****, please, okay?”
The woman continues on until someone catches her attention and indicates a window seat elsewhere on the plane may be available. However, it turns out that seat wasn’t open.
The blonde flyer has to return to her original seat, prompting her to again complain about being “squished.”
Frink says something to the woman, to which she replies, “Well, I eat salad.”
Rodgers then signals a flight attendant, saying, “Excuse me, can you find her another seat? Because I will not be verbally abused by this b**** or anybody else.”
“I will not be verbally abused by anybody,” she reiterates. “I’m not tolerating it.”
The flight attendant asks if the blonde passenger would like to wait toward the back of the plane while they see if another seat is available. The woman replies, “Thank goodness,” before adding, “I eat salads.”
At this point, other passengers toss in their two cents.
“You should be ashamed of yourself, madam,” says another flyer. “What you’re doing is so terrible, you should be ashamed of yourself.”
“I’m not politically correct,” says the woman to one passenger. “Make America great again, that’s a good example.”
“Why don’t you try and sit between those two big pigs,” the blonde flyer says to another.
“B****, kiss my fat ass,” Rodgers shouts before turning to a flight attendant and saying, “I am not starting my new year off with this kind of negativity.”
The irate woman was eventually removed from the flight.
