Actress Sophia Bush raged on Twitter after being harassed in-flight. She took a flight this past Friday and was upset that the man continued to try to engage with her, even after she moved seats.
“When you make a woman so visibly uncomfortable, that after you’ve ignored all visual cues to please leave her alone…she finally GETS UP and MOVES SEATS, leave her alone,” she wrote in a lengthy Twitter diatribe.
She slammed the stalker for his unrelenting attempts to chat with her despite clear signals, including one-word responses and even putting a hat on, that she had no interest in talking to him.
“Do not continue trying to make conversation. Stop turning around and looking at her. Stop leaning out of your seat and towards her body when she has to grab something out of the overhead bin above her original seat,” she wrote.
While Bush clearly felt uncomfortable, she was also angry.
This is one that makes me nervous about flying. You are in a very enclosed area and while nothing extremely bad has happened in flight, I’ve had many uncomfortable situations. I wrote a post almost exactly a month ago on some of my experiences. By far, the most occurring situation is when a man suggests I climb over his lap to get out of the seat. Of course, he’s “joking”. They were always “joking” once I got mad. At a certain point, I started booking aisle seats when traveling solo.
