The rows on a plane are a small place. It’s easy to see what the other person next to you is doing, especially if they are texting. One woman, Landen Ewing, learned this the hard way on her flight back from Nashville.

The man next to her was texting his girlfriend, and Landen couldn’t help but notice what the text was about since he had his phone way out infront of him where she could easily see it. The girlfriend texted him about how the flight’s going – a harmless, normal question. His response? “[Seat] too small with this fat ass next to me.” He didn’t come out and say he was referring to Landen, but, she was the only one next to him as it was just the two of them in the row. The girlfriend then responded saying “tell her about keto.”

WOW! Landen did not see the full rest of the conversation except for him then typing “I’ll bee alright, don’t think we’ll make it off the ground” and some comments about how much he hates being on “small flights with fat people.”

Landen shared this experience on “TikTok” where people came to her defense in the comments writing things like “You’re gorgeous. Sounds like he’s been in trouble with his GF before that had nothing to do with you. But I’m sorry you had to read that.”
