Viral Video Of Man Punching Women’s Airplane Seatback Sends Internet Into Spiral

Per The Metro, the incident occurred when teacher Wendi Williams was taking an American Airlines trip to a conference in New Orleans when she reclined her seat for a rest. Wendi Williams tweeted on February 8.

"Here's a great jackhole! He was angry that I reclined my seat and punched it about 9 times - HARD, at which point I began videoing him, and he resigned to this behavior", Williams wrote on Twitter.

Some were dismayed that the flight attendant apparently sided with the man (or maybe just wanted to get him to stop punching the seat).

The clip showing the bearded, bespectacled man has since gone viral, with more than 2.4 million views.

An American Airlines passenger has called out the carrier and its employees for failing to act when a man seated behind her during a recent flight allegedly kept punching the top of her seat, an attack she's since described as an "assault".

"When the FA came".

As for WHY wannabe-Tyson was treating Wendi's seat like a speed bag - she says it's because she had the nerve to recline. She told me I had to delete the video! That video has now become a lightning rod for debate about personal space and keeping the peace on planes. "I asked her name & She gave me a Passenger Disturbance Notice!" Then there were those who thought both Williams and the man were in the wrong, and could have easily deescalated the situation or avoided it completely by communicating more instead of remaining at a stalemate.

"You clearly want me to do this quietly through a DM", she tweeted on February 8 in reply to the airline. I recline my seat 100% of the time and have no issue with people in front of me reclining the seat which they paid for. "I will recline! Hey hey!" She put back up again requested after the passengers were served their in-flight meals.

"It was scary and very painful" she said, claiming she lost time at work, had to receive X-rays and suffered headaches because of the incident.

"I'm in pain. I have 1 cervical disk left that isn't fused - the first 1 which allows me some mobility".

"I'm no saint, but I have seen enough videos of the wrong person being escorted off the plane!" she said. "I am grateful for the limited movement I still have and shouldn't have had to endure the repeated blows".

"I was contacted via phone by American [Airlines, ] they apologized but really didn't accept any responsibility for the flight attendant's actions", she charged. She tweeted that she plans to file an assault charge with the Federal Bureau of Investigation against the "man who mistook me for a punching bag". "Anyone who doesn't like it, I don't care!"

A woman named Wendi Williams, of all things, recorded this video of the guy sitting behind her on a January 31 AA flight from New Orleans to Charlotte.

"This video has the internet legitimately divided". There is no need to recline a seat unless you are on a long-haul flight & the meal service is over.
