Coulter, one of America's best-known and most provocative pundits on the political right, ripped the airline with a series of tweets on Saturday and Sunday, saying she was "kicked out of a carefully pre-booked seat to a less desirable seat, without explanation, apology, etc".
Coulter also tweeted photos of a flight attendant who did not know why she was not given her pre-booked seat and the woman who was seated there instead. And perhaps Coulter could have realized that moving over three seats for a short-haul flight isn't that big of a deal, and if she wanted more pampering she could have flown first class. She tweeted this morning that "SJWs" (social justice warriors) run the company's customer relations department and likened the carrier's reply to fascism.
Delta says it "inadvertently" moved Coulter as passengers were boarding and it was "disappointed" with Coulter's remarks.
Coulter continued her online rant Monday. The airline also called her tweets "about our other customers and employees" unacceptable and unnecessary. It was only after the plane landed that she took to Twitter to criticize the airline. In April 2005, it was reported in a number of blogs and apparently verified on Ann Coulter's own website page that she was furious for being singled out by security at the Harrisburg, PA Airpot.
"We will refund Ms. Coulter's $30 for the preferred seat on the exit row that she purchased".
In an ironic twist of fate, Coulter's ordeal came after she expressed her famously unusual opinion in April when Dr. David Dao of Kentucky was violently dragged off a United Airlines flight that was allegedly overbooked. Then she went on to explain what had happened to her: That she was moved from a seat with extra room, to a normal economy seat.
The six foot tall, right-leaning TV commentator and author, 55, took to Twitter on Saturday to complain that she'd been booted from her reserved "comfort" seat which comes with an extra three inches of leg room.
As Coulter persisted in chiding Delta Airlines, social media users started to weigh in on the situation.
She wrote on Twitter: "I have been the picture of politeness".
