Delta Airlines Responds to Ann Coulter Criticisms: "Unacceptable and Unnecessary"

Delta Airlines Responds to Ann Coulter Criticisms:

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter issued several Tweets Saturday night and throughout Sunday unloading on Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines.

Coulter tweeted a photo of the passenger who was given her seat to her 1.6 million followers, complaining that she wasn't "an air marshall or tall person", nor was she "elderly, child, or sick".

The company said there was some confusion with seating assignments during boarding, and that a flight attendant then asked the passengers to move to the seats noted on their respective tickets. "Here's the woman given my PRE-BOOKED seat", she wrote.

Here are a few tweets where she profusely insulted the carrier, its staff and even the passenger who allegedly took her seat.

Conservative political commentator and author Ann Coulter discusses her latest book, "Adios, America: The Left's Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole" on June 17, 2015 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

Coulter went ballistic on social media after she was moved from the aisle seat on a flight from NY to Palm Beach, Florida, to a window seat in the same exit row.

Amid her diatribe, Coulter took a brief break to praise JetBlue and their free WiFi for some reason.

She also directed her ire at the "dachshund-legged woman" who took her seat with extra leg room, posting a picture of her. Following the flight, crew members reported that there were no problems or concerns escalated. After almost a day, Delta replied and took her to task on Twitter. "Congratulations to Ann Coulter on being so very bad that people are actually siding with an airline", one Twitter user wrote. They offered to refund her $30. The airline said it reached out to Coulter and apologize, but only heard back from her on Sunday evening.

Hanna Flint hinted at potential racism and xenophobia by tweeting: "Go ahead and say it Ann, they gave it to this brown woman".

Nevertheless, some of Ann's fans jumped to her defense. The policy explicitly states that "Delta accommodates the seating requirements of customers with certain types of disabilities", which might lead to seating changes regardless of whether someone has pre-booked a seat.
