An American Airlines passenger shared social media after embarrassing a fellow traveler who punched and pushed his seat when she reclined it.
The passenger, Wendi Williams, filmed the man – who was sitting in a seat behind her who did not recline – on a flight from New Orleans to Charlotte.
She posted a clip of him continually poking his seat for Twitter, but many on the social media site were in conflict over who was wrong and whether she should have reclined her seat in the first place.
@BravoAndy Here's a great hole! He was angry that I reclined my seat and held it about 9 times – HARD, when I started shooting with him, and he resigned from that behavior. The other hole is the @AmericanAir stewardess who scolded me and offered her rum! pic.twitter.com/dHeUysrKTu

An American Airlines passenger, Wendi Williams, shared social media after embarrassing a fellow traveler she claimed to have punched the seat several times while reclining him
Wendi claims that when she reclined the seat for the first time, the man asked her to put it back while he ate – and she agreed.
However, when he finished eating, she reclined again and claims that "he punched my seat about nine times".
She then & # 39; started recording & # 39 ;, with the clip showing it rhythmically and forcefully, pushing her seat.
She wrote on Twitter: & # 39; I am in pain. I have a cervical disc that is not fused – the first one that allows me some mobility.
"It is scary because it is this type of injury that can cause this. I am grateful for the limited movement I still have and I shouldn't have suffered repeated blows."
Wendi also says that despite complaining to a flight attendant, they offered the man a complimentary drink and threatened to escort her off the plane.
She also says that, after complaining to American Airlines, she was told she would have to contact the FBI "to obtain any resolution".
She tweeted, "The airline didn't really accept any guilt, although it apologized and said that what happened was wrong – that's it."
After Wendi posted the video to Twitter, many people went to the social media site to support her
Some on Twitter, like Lynn Beckman, supported Wendi saying: & # 39; I can't believe American Airlines did nothing for this poor woman, but gave this monster a drink & # 39 ;.
Another one called & # 39; Theexistentialbiker & # 39; he added: & # 39; If I pay for the damn seat, I will complain if I want. His behavior would have arrested me.
While & # 39; Barbsbuzz & # 39; tweeted: & # 39; I would have stood up and said "hey buddy, i paid for this seat, the whole seat, so keep your hands to yourself". And then she complained out loud that he is harassing me and I am afraid of what he will do. He kept calling the flight attendant.
But not everyone was friendly, including & # 39; Boondocksaint 88 & # 39 ;, who tweeted: & # 39; I am 1.80m and cannot stand reckless people putting their seats back.
Other Twitter users didn't show much sympathy for Wendi and said she was wrong to recline her seat
“Being the size I am, I still don't recline because I have courtesy for others. If it were me, you wouldn't have your back, so be lucky that this guy left.
Rodell added: “The place was probably not your choice. She's complaining that he's not being considerate of her, well, what is she doing?
An American Airlines spokesman said: “We are aware of a customer dispute that occurred on American Eagle flight 4392, operated by Republic Airways, on January 31.
"The safety and comfort of our customers and team members is our top priority and our team is investigating the issue."
