A woman recently went viral on Twitter after sharing a video of the person behind her punching her seat after she reclined it.
Wendi Williams said that she took an American Airlines flight on Jan.
31 and reclined her seat at some point during the flight.
Williams said the man behind her asked if he could finish eating before she put her seat back, which she kindly obliged.
After she was sure he was done eating, Williams said that she reclined and the man started repeatedly punching the back of her seat.
Williams said she called a flight attendant, but the attendant “rolled her eyes” at Williams .
And then told the man seating was tight and offered to give him a free mini bottle of rum.
The attendant told Williams it was illegal to film on a plane so Williams would have to delete the video.
There is no federal law against in-flight photography or filming unless it directly prevents the flight staff from doing their jobs.
Williams said she reached out to American Airlines customer service, but they “didn’t really accept any responsibility”
