Delta Reacts To Ann Coulter's Criticism, Twitter Supports Airline

Delta Air Lines has upset conservative pundit Ann Coulter after moving her from her preferred seat

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter launched an aggressive tweetstorm Saturday against Delta Airlines after the company allegedly gave her seat away - at one point referring to the airline as a "suck-a-" company that "spends all this $$$ on attractive aircraft & then hire Nurse Ratchets as flight attendants & gate agents".

Predictably, Coulter's fans lined up behind her and her critics defended and even praised Delta.

She also said Delta gave her seat to someone who wasn't taller than her. At the time of boarding, the airline apparently moved the rightwing pundit to her previously allocated seat to accommodate seating requests from other passengers.

Instead of calming the situation, Delta's response to Coulter enraged her even more and she continued to rage tweet at the airline late into Sunday.

"If you thought it was about $30, @Delta, why didn't you give this woman $30 and let me stay in my PRE-BOOKED, ASSIGNED seat?" she wrote, sharing a picture of the woman who was placed in her seat. She also compared Delta employees to prison guards and the former East German secret police.

"We're sorry you did not receive the preferred seat you paid for and will refund your $30", the airline told Coulter on Twitter. Animal handler? Stasi policeman?

But for all his criticisms of current zombie properties, Romero was hugely supportive of the artisans working in that genre. Romero is survived by his wife, Suzanne, and his two children. "I feel this is my way of being able to express myself".

Delta's Anthony Black said in a statement Sunday morning that the airline had reached out to Coulter to address her complaints. More importantly, we are disappointed that the customer has chosen to publicly attack our employees and other customers by posting derogatory and slanderous comments and photos in social media.

That woman and two other passengers stare at Coulter in the photo - perhaps wondering what will happen now that they have been photographed by the same unpredictable commentator who once wished assassination upon John Edwards, declined to condemn an abortion doctor's murder and joked about poisoning a Supreme Court justice.

Now Delta has had its fair share of bad news over the years, including in the wake of the United incident where a passenger was dragged off the flight.

"Delta expects mutual civility throughout the entire travel experience", the statement said.

According to Coulter, the attendant said, "I don't know". Following the flight, crew members reported that there were no problems or concerns escalated.

"The airline's social media and customer care teams made several attempts to connect with her to apologize for the seat mix-up", the company said.
