Delta Hits Back At Ann Coulter After Twitter Tirade

The New York Daily News reports:

Delta Airlines has offered conservative firebrand Ann Coulter a $30 refund after she flew into a rage Saturday for being booted from her “extra room seat” on a flight. [email protected] We’re sorry you did not receive the preferred seat you paid for and will refund your $30,” the airline said in a tweet Sunday night.

“Additionally, your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary,” the airline said in response to Coulter’s tweetstorm. The 55-year-old Coulter was dissatisfied with Delta’s reply.

“$30! It cost me $10,000 of my time to pre-select the seat I wanted, investigate type of plane & go back periodically to review seat options,” she tweeted. “If you thought it was about $30, @Delta, why didn’t you give this woman $30 and let me stay in my PRE-BOOKED, ASSIGNED seat?” she wrote, sharing a picture of the woman who was placed in her seat.

  • Rex

    When the majority of people side with an airline over a passenger, you know that passenger is despised. Good job Delta.

    • Personally, I think Delta owes an apology to that woman they made sit next to Ann Coulter.

    • B Snow

      Especially when it’s Delta. Most of the time they do suck, but I have to admit, my last two flights went amazingly well. And anyone who pisses off Ann Coulter gets kudos.

  • Dutchlander

    It costs me $30,000,000 of my valuable time to read Coulter’s crap on Twitter. Can I claim that back?

  • JoeMyGod

    $10,000 of her time to click on a seat selection? Uh huh.

    • BJORN RAGNVALDR

      Me thinks the lady doth project too much……

      Edit: Lady only used because it was in the original, she is NO lady.

      • Kruhn

        And neither is she a tramp!

    • Kruhn

      You do remember when Ann Coulter made fun of the Vietnamese passenger that got dragged out of the United Airlines flight. During her Twitter meltdown, she blamed her discomfort on immigrants and Latinos.

  • IAMBOWLINGGREEN

    Snowflake Coulter is going to get her $30 back. She can put the money towards therapy.

    • BJORN RAGNVALDR

      There’s not enough money in the world….

      • Todd20036

        Or anyone willing to listen to her moldy crap of a life for hours on end.

    • Todd20036

      Or she could just put a bag over her head and everyone will ignore her.

      • djcoastermark

        Paper or plastic ? Anne, choose plastic please, it’s more durable.

        • Todd20036

          You need to be imaginative.
          Think mummy wrappings, or a stone sarcophagus.

          • Mikey

            NO! Some stupid archaeologist will resurrect her some time in the future, to wreck havoc on the world once more!!

          • djcoastermark

            I was thinking more along the lines of the Plastic Bag Challenge, but a good mummy wrap would be quite nice too.

          • bsinps

            Along side Milo

          • Rambie

            Iron Maiden for her

          • Todd20036

            Iron Maiden? EXCELLENT!!!

          • Christopher
          • Kruhn

            And many airports have those wrapping stations.

    • bambinoitaliano

      $30 is only enough for booking an appointment this days. Unless she goes into one of her community free service. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/53392bdf27691118dde851f2187eab97cfd57243e387be2bca452796ebfc1f95.jpg

  • dcurlee

    Should have put her ass in cargo in a kennel like the dog she is

    • FAEN

      I’ll take a doggy over her. No contest.

    • bambinoitaliano

      And booted a legit paying dog?! PETA will have none of that nonsense! What did the poor doggy do to you?

      • TheManicMechanic

        Spend the flight being pampered up in coach for making the crew and passengers so happy for giving up its seat downstairs. I wonder if people could still hear Cunter shriek over the engines and airflow for the entire flight.

    • Christopher

      Fuck that!

      She can ride on the wing.

  • FAEN

    And now she’ll use this in her new book to prove how discriminated she is by everyone of a darker hue.

  • olandp

    How does one “research” a seat on an airplane? It is impossible to know what exact plane will be used.

    edit: And we aren’t supposed to use the ‘c’ word.

    • Snarkaholic

      Slunt is an acceptable substitute.

      • geoffalnutt

        So is “crunt”.

        • bzrd

          kvnt works

      • Prost Seattle

        Cünt works, I believe.. So does oozy dripping skank hole.

    • CB

      Actually, not true. Plug your airline and flight number into seatguru.com, and you can find out. Saved me a sitff back on a flight to Asia.

      • Rambie

        The plain model is never totally guaranteed. My flight from Boston to Las Vegas was swapped to from a Air Bus to a Boeing after “mechanical” problems with the original plane. Granted that’s rare but does happen

    • bambinoitaliano

      I learned that a few days ago :p having my comments in pending mode.

    • another_steve

      The way to get around the Orwellian thought and speech control that Disqus employs with respect to certain words is to use diacritical marks.

      Cünt.

      Nïgger.

      • Todd20036

        Works in WaPo, too. Doesn’t work on my work computer but at home I can use different characters to say “fuck”.
        I don’t often though

        • another_steve

          I never use those words in a bigoted way and I’m sure you don’t either, Todd.

          I trust that my readers are intelligent and can discern the difference between playfulness and meanness.

      • TheManicMechanic

        Joe has the ability to filter certain words that appear in comments. Disqus by default has no filters, it’s up to the website owners to enable them. When a filter is enabled, any comments containing the filtered word(s) get sent into a moderation queue. They can be let in unaltered, edited, or, in this case, ignored until they eventually evaporate.

        I myself dislike seeing those words, but it’s all about context. Coulter deserves it shouted right into her long-assed horse face every time she opens her pie hole.

    • jerry

      Most of the flights I’ve taken in recent years will send an email to check in ahead of time, and there’s always multiple options to upgrade, including choosing your seat…all of which comes with additional fees. Last 2 or 3 years, I’ve flown American, Delta and Allegiant…and they all had this option.

      I think that option is also available on the e-machines when checking in at the airport. Has a picture of the seating chart and lets you (for a fee) choose where you want to sit. Somehow last month, on a small jet (around 50 seats, no business or 1st Class), I got seat 1A, and I never pay for these extras.

  • JoeMyGod

    If your time is worth $10,000 per five minutes, seems like you’d spring for first class….

    • Todd20036

      I think the words “first class” and “Ann Coulter” in the same sentence discombobulated the old girl.

      • Yes, but they don’t have a coke whore section on most flights.

      • Uncle Mark

        There’s ALWAYS a screaming baby on the plane. This time it was Ann.

    • gaymex1

      Exactly

    • Ernest Endevor

      Of course she flies first. Otherwise she might be ‘recognized’ and be forced to deal with the attentions of the peonage. Something is fishy about this story.

      • PeterC

        Certainly reads like rotten Fish.

    • PeterC

      Author , columnist, & IDIOT !!!

      • prixator

        Wrong order – “idiot” goes first!

    • BobSF_94117

      I’m surprised she isn’t flown around on corporate or RNC jets for free.

    • GeoffreyPS

      And have people to book your flights for you. Or charter you a private plane.

      So how much of her oh-so-valuable time did she waste on tweeting?

      • Kruhn

        For her, Tweeting is her job! LOL

    • grindstone

      Any time someone starts talking about “my time is worth $xx”, I know they’re full of shit. Exception being the lawyer I happen to be paying by the hour. And when you’re a free lance shrew, as Ms. Coulter, then the best you can say if you netted $xx in a year, NOT that your time is intrinsically worth more than anyone else’s.

    • Mike C

      The No Class section was full.

      • prixator

        … of Republicans.

    • TrueWords
      • That poor broom.

      • Kruhn

        That joke was beaten to death on Twitter. LOL

    • TrueWords

      Also Ann is ALL for FREE enterprise and capitalism but NOW that it effects her she acts like a bigger ASSHOLE than she already is…

    • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly
  • Rex

    Ann Coulter flew Delta?
    Was her broom broken?

  • CB

    As someone who travels often on business, I’ve had my share of seat snafus. I can assure all of my friends here that fascism is never involved. Previously cancelled flights, changes of equipment, people with higher status than me, etc. all figure into the mix. Delta hasn’t said, nor are they obliged to.
    The airlines have all changed their “terms of carriage” in recent months, with the largest shift being in your spend with a specific airline. While we don’t know what precipitated Ms. Coulter’s being moved, I can reasonably predict that persecuting someone on the right wing. (Go read the comments on Mediaite.) is probably not the cause. Ocam’s razor and all.
    This childish and ongoing tantrum makes me think even less of this shrew, if that was possible.
    Flying can be very difficult these days. Not a newsflash. You can suck it up and deal with what’s in front of your, or stay home. In Coulter’s case, I wish she’d choose the latter more often. (Plus, she can’t bilk someone out of a premium cabin seat? Sheesh.)

  • olandp

    I’ll bet the potential seat mates were relieved.

  • GayOldLady

    And calling the passenger who took her seat a Dachsund-legged woman and taking her photo may end up costing Ms. Coulter a lot more than $10k.

    • David Milley

      Here’s hoping.

      • MaryJOGrady

        I really hope she does not get doxxed. That is a scary experience.

        • David Milley

          My reply was hoping that Coulter gets sued by the woman she has already doxxed with her slimy photo. Context, please.

          • MaryJOGrady

            Sorry. I misunderstood your comment.

    • Skeptical_Inquirer

      If creepy people start doxxing her and start sending her creepy messages through social media, I’d say she has a good case.

  • ETownCanuck

    Awww, it’s always a sad day for Republicans when they are treated like the rest of us commoners.

  • IAMBOWLINGGREEN

    Knowing that Coulter is not going to be on future flights will be a boost for Delta.

    • MaryJOGrady

      I must take an overseas trip later this year. Based on previous experience with Delta and their behavior in the face of Ms. Coulter’s brattiness, it will be Delta for me.

  • Michael R

    Based on your behavior you don’t deserve the
    space you occupy – anywhere , ever .
    End of discussion .

  • Butch

    She “investigates” the type of plane? Someone who in her position must certainly fly a lot does all that repeated research just to take a routine flight? She must have more time on her hands than she’s admitting.

    • Reality.Bites

      Well I “investigate” the plane too, with seatguru, to make sure I’m in a seat with an electrical outlet, etc. But shouldn’t someone as important as her have a personal assistant?

      • MaryJOGrady

        Who would take a job as Ann Coulter’s personal assistant?

        • Reality.Bites

          I have no idea. I’m still shocked there’s an airline that takes her business.

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    Why didn’t she just use her broom?

  • HZ81

    Poor snowflake Ann.

    Next time, maybe the pilot will let you see the kuntpit, dear.

  • another_steve

    I’m generally not an advocate of over-litigiousness, but for the life of me I don’t understand why business interests that are maligned by the far-right or the far-left don’t sue for damages.

    Sue the fuckers.

  • Jonathan Smith
    • Todd20036

      Well, what do you know? Sometimes two wrongs do make a right!

      (Yeah, I know it’s fake)

  • Jeffg166

    She’s getting the attentions she wants. For free is the best part.

  • David Walker

    $10,000. So that’s all of 5 minutes? One wonders if she has ever thought about anyone else’s problems. Her utterly undue sense of entitlement, lack of empathy, and attitude that we all are born to serve her makes me want to hurl chunks…at her. She should have been dragged off the plane. I know, I know, I was totally anti-United when they did that, but that guy didn’t deserve it. If anyone deserves to be deplaned, or strapped to the wing, it is she. $10,000.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Xrw0gbnNuU

  • Paul

    I hope more report the tweet with the photo of the woman she’s complaining about. Else she’ll be doxxed by the same people who complained about CNN ‘doxxing’ that Nazi supporting Reddit user.

  • Kevin Perez

    Delta should reject any further attempt by Ann Coulter to purchase a ticket on their airline..forever.

  • TuuxKabin

    Do it some more Delta, inconvenience her little by little, gas light her ass. Who’s the victim now? Petty bitch.

  • Mrs. Councillor Nugent

    Was the cargo hold filled? Or should she have flown lavatory?

    • bambinoitaliano

      It must have run out of overhead storage room because that’s where she should be stuffed.

      • Mrs. Councillor Nugent

        They tried, but her Adam’s Apple wouldn’t fit!

  • another_steve

    Am I evil for wanting the gremlin to grab her and pull her out of the cabin through the window?

    • bambinoitaliano

      I did the math. They both cancel each other out. Proceed.

    • Kruhn

      By the power vested in me by the Pope and the People of Puerto Rico, I hereby absolve you of any meanness involving a gremlin pulling vile Ann Coulter from a plane through the window.

      Sofrito, cuchifrito, bacalaito, boom!

    take the train next time bitch

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    I would pay $300.00 extra if I could be guaranteed to be seated next to a dachshund on a Delta flight. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5fc04bee77bc7b4a574eda2d52af0de5a63f27d70e30659ed9907ad6bbdb66b5.jpg

      That pooch could sit on my lap. Easier for doggie snuggles. Yours as a puppy, or current? Zo cute.

    • bambinoitaliano

      Actually it’s not such a bad idea. Given the regularity of air rage lately, the airlines should take a page from the senior homes where they bring in a therapy dog or therapy cat to lighten the mood of the passengers. Alcohol no longer serve the purpose of calming like it use to.

    • But does that wiener do tricks? (I need to get this for my mother-in-law; she’d get a kick out of it.)
      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/57990e2b6923df8532f92544910d5da9fe6d3fc8e00097882930332576df1fec.jpg

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        That’s about right for doxies. There’s a lot of info that claims there one of the hardest breeds to train. In one article I read, the training advice was to try to get them to think whatever you want them to do was THEIR idea.

        • Dazzer

          My dog absolutely refuses to be trained.

          If I say “Sit!” to her she looks at me as if to say: “Well, you’re the monkey. If you need to sit down, just do and don’t announce it to people who aren’t interested”. And if I throw a ball or a stick for her, she stands there looking at me as if to say: “Well, if it was that important to you, you shouldn’t have thrown it away, should you?”

          • Skokieguy [Larry]

            Mine has the ability to indicate outrage and the lack of dignity of my basic requests (such as go out into the back yard when its raining).

          • Our dog’s an Australian Terrier, but he used to love going out and running around in the rain and splashing in puddles (it’s a little harder for him now, since he’s gotten a bit old). On the other hand, whenever I would try to give him a bath, he’d scamper off and hide.

          • Skokieguy [Larry]

            Awwwww. The side walk to the yard has a skinny flowerbed I’ve bordered with skinny railroad ties, no more than 3″ wide. When the sidewalk is puddled, (and rain over or she won’t go outside), Coco will step up onto the railroad ties and walk down them like an Olympic gymnast on a balance beam, to get to the back yard to relieve herself.

          • charemor
          • prixator

            My dog loved to chase balls or sticks or whatever I threw. Unfortunately, in her excitement, she always wanted to let me know that she had found it (she often didn’t), so she would bark as she was running back and, of course, the object would fall out of her mouth and I would have to go pick it up.

            I so wish that I could play that game again!

      • Todd Allis

  • KaBoomBOX

    $10,000.00, the max amount if you get bumped from a flight, except horse-face wasn’t bumped, just reseated.

  • BlindBill

    So she was not flying first class? ….maybe her time is not worth what she thinks it is..

    • Reality.Bites

      Not even premium economy. Sad

  • bambinoitaliano

    Even Snooki from Jersey Shore had to work really hard to sustain her 15 minutes fame. This bag of bone of a mutated horse face think because she has a twitter account and wrote a couple of books no one reads she is entitled to be treated like an A-List celebrity. How typical of those right wing nuts with their snow flake shock reactions just because they can inhale and exhale like other living things. I’m surprise she has not scream reverse racism and not paid equal to that 65 year old Asian man who got drag out of the plane by United Airline.

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    I would still rather sit next to the lady who was so large she was half in my seat and licking her index finger and repeatedly sticking it in the pretzel bag to get the salt and bits of pretzel at the bottom, than sit next this bitch.

    • Reality.Bites

      You can say Grace, honey. We all know who you mean.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen

        Oh, honey, I wanted to her to have just a little shred of dignity. I hate when she gets upgraded to first class.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      I would love to be that large lady, sitting next to Coultergiest on a very long flight, and passively-aggressively tormenting her every moment of those many hours.

  • Reality.Bites

    Bar her permanently Delta.

  • Mark

    Oh honey, if you’re so slow that it takes you a year to make a reservation, you have more serious problems than leg room.

    I book flights internationally a lot and it’s never taken me more than 15 minutes to get through the entire process; including looking at seat guru to figure out where I’m going to sit. And frankly, Ann, if you fly at all, you know the plane and where you want to sit and should so so and just shut up. (said in best Julia Sugarbaker voice)

    • bambinoitaliano

      She is not the brightest bulb. If not for faux news none of these parasites would have a platform to piggy ride to infamy.

      • kareemachan

        But…. but…. but… she supposedly wrote the travel ban for drumps…

        oh wait.

  • QJ201

    I guess the media ho couldn’t get someone else to buy her a seat in First Class.

  • Texndoc

    I’m sick of purchasing an airline ticket then picking out the seat and seeing your price going up depending on where you choose to sit. If the airlines pull this stunt then dammit you get to sit in the seat you paid more for I don’t care if it’s Martin Schkreli or whoever that pharma thief is. Gone are the days of “would you let this couple sit together?” or “this child with their parent”?

    “No, not when you charged more for me to sit here” (sweet smile)

  • Jefe5084

    For what you bring to the table, your hourly rates are clearly about 100% TOO HIGH.

  • The Milkman

    I don’t like Ann Coulter any more than anyone else. But she does have a point, in that she paid for a seat with extra leg room and was moved. I would venture to say that she wouldn’t have been offered a refund had she not raised a stink. So yeah, she has a modest point about how airlines treat passengers who pay for a service that they don’t receive. Of course she’s so entrenched with the corporate shills that she wouldn’t ever even consider revising the laws governing passenger air travel to address this issue. So instead, she takes reprehensible pictures of the flight attendants and fellow passengers and posts them. It’s one thing if you’re taking pictures of someone being beaten and dragged out of an airplane. It’s quite another when you’re just taking pictures to make a bitchy little point. So any validity she might have enjoyed in this situation has been completely eclipsed by her own inappropriate behavior.

    • BobSF_94117

      I doubt they moved her to a seat with less legroom or she’d be howling about that, too.

      • The Milkman

        Oh, so they moved her to another extra legroom seat? Is that what happened? I didn’t see that in the report. I thought they moved her to standard. If that’s what happened, then bitch please.

        • BobSF_94117

          Note that I said “doubt”. I have no evidence, other than her lack of complaints about discomfort and pain and suffering and sore hooves, etc.

          • yes b’y

            sore hooves LOL

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Imagine having to sit next to that creature.

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      Should be worth quite a bit more than a $30 refund – say a free ticket.

      • kareemachan

        Why?

        And I call bullshit on her spending $10,000 of her time to research the effing flight/seat.

        You bet, babycakes.

        • Dreaming Vertebrate

          Why? Because no one wants to sit beside the evil reptile queen for the duration of the flight.

          • kareemachan

            Very, VERY true.

  • Kelly Lape

    Extra room = exit row mid plane. If the person booked there was uncomfortable with their ability to remove the exit in an emergency they are moved. Ann Coulter just another ignorant Reich winger

  • Hanwi

    She seems nice……/s

  • Gigi

    Seeing the Coultergeist this upset fills me with joy. Thanks, Delta!

  • penpal

    She was obviously in full rage mode, bitching at people and taking photos of customers to post to her twitter account. My question is, why wasn’t she thrown off the plane entirely?

    • kareemachan

      White?

  • Natty Enquirer

    I thought harpies already had wings.

  • Halou

    “Delta now dictating acceptable conduct off the plane. NOT fascist at all.”

    I guess she will complain about the in-flight safety video too then? Fascism!

  • Mike

    Are we supposed to side with Delta because Ann Coulter is a loathsome pig? Not bloody likely. She’s a pig, AND Delta is despicable too. Delta and the rest get away with abusing their customers and it has to stop. Airlines should be regulated to a point of strangulation, under risk of crippling fines for the abuses they routinely hand out like little bags of peanuts. Maybe the skies would be friendly again.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok
  • Victor Torres

    Delta also called her what most of us refer to her as in the last word of their first tweet:

    @AnnCoulter We’re sorry you did not receive the preferred seat you paid for and will refund your $30. (cont.)

    That’s some deep shade right there…

    • Reality.Bites

      What is it you (cont.)

      face?

  • Tor

    Those tweets must have cost her $20,000.

  • The_Wretched

    Ann, rather than be a pointless attention whr, call on congress to establish regulations for the protection of air travelers. Maybe you can crib the rules from the EU.

  • Sporkfighter

    If I knew in advance I’d be sitting next to Ann Coulter, I think I could find ways to enjoy the flight. I’d start with a large pre-flight bean burrito and blame the farts on her.

  • $10,000 of her time to pick a fricken seat? She must be incredibly incompetent with computers. And life.

  • Delta has every legal right to put her on a no-fly list.

  • 2patricius2

    $10,000 of her time? If that’s the case, I just wasted $10,000 of 1 minute of my time reading about her childish tirades.

  • Publius

    Scrolling down and finding she posted a picture of the family in that row made my blood boil. Nobody on Earth is qualified to act so childishly after not getting their way on an airplane. I agree she shouldn’t fly Delta again. She should get back on her broom instead.

  • netxtown

    I’m feeling bad for anyone who had to sit near her…..or even be on the same plane in that closed air tube. I can fault Delta only for not notifying everybody else that real-life stinky skank was aboard.

  • Attention whore gets attention. Film at 11.

  • Snarky

    It’s official. This country has been taken over by childish and entitled rich white straight people who are at the very top of the economic and opportunity scale, while kicking their little feet and screaming that they’re victims every time someone doesn’t give them every last thing they want.

  • bcarter3

    Shoulda just locked her in the toilet for the duration of the flight. She’d feel right at home.
