On Saturday, Ann Coulter attacked Delta airlines for giving a seat with more legroom that she paid $30 for to another passenger, and Princess Snowflake was terribly unhappy.
Hey @Delta, you mind telling me why it was an "emergency" to move someone else into the seat I had carefully chosen in advance and booked?— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) July 15, 2017
In fact, she angrily tweeted about it for a full two hours, going so far as to post a picture of the woman who got her seat. Again, the woman who got her seat did absolutely nothing here; Delta gave the seat away, and yet, Coulter felt it necessary to post this woman’s picture over a very minor, perceived slight (Coulter was still on the flight; she simply didn’t get the minor upgrade):
Health insurance for millions of people is in danger, but Coulter just couldn’t let losing that extra legroom go. You can’t get anymore First World Problemier than this:
But at least @Delta was nice @ it, summarily snatching my ticket from my hand & ordering me to move w/o explanation, compensation or apology— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) July 16, 2017
So glad I took time investigate the aircraft & PRE-BOOK a specific seat on @Delta, so some woman could waltz at the last min & take my seat.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) July 15, 2017
There were a number of other tweets over two hours, but you get the picture: Ann Coulter was super upset that she had her extra-legroom seat taken away, and decided to take her rage out on not only Delta but the female passenger who gained her seat.
On Sunday, Delta responded to Ann Coulter, and the implication in their tweets is that Ann Coulter is an entitled, privileged, asshole who threw a goddamn fit over a very minor slight.
@AnnCoulter We're sorry you did not receive the preferred seat you paid for and will refund your $30. (cont.)— Delta (@Delta) July 16, 2017
@AnnCoulter Additionally, your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.— Delta (@Delta) July 16, 2017
Airlines are not exactly beloved — especially Delta — but a Twitter fight with Ann Coulter is a surefire way to get the public on your side.
This is amazing. Thank you @delta.— John Damico (@JohnJewelryGuy) July 17, 2017
Aww shucks, we're feeling the love! *ASY— Delta (@Delta) July 17, 2017
I totally get it. It costs me 75k to brush my teeth. I must pre-select a brush, investigate types of paste, and periodically spit bullshit❄️— Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) July 17, 2017
You folks have already placed your votes on who is the Best Chris (and those results will arrive on Thursday). Shame you didn’t have him slamming Ann Coulter to help make your decision. Also this:

Minus 5 points, Evans, for your shameless manipulation.
