Famous for her anti-semitic, racist, and xenophobic comments and pro-Trump books Ann Coulter is definitely one of the most hated women on the planet. When Rob Lowe was roasted on Comedy Central last year, the comedians spent more time roasting guest Ann Coulter, saying she was the truest form of evil from hell itself.
Coulter recently made headlines once again when she tweeted her disdain for Delta airlines in her typical hateful, Ann Coulter way.
Coulter was removed her specific seat on a flight from New York to Florida. This is common on airlines when they are overbooked or need to make special accommodations. However Coulter did not take kindly to changing her seats. She tweeted, “@Delta employee questionnaire: What is your ideal job: Prison guard? Animal handler? Stasi policeman? All of the above? Hired!” Unfortunately this was not the only tweet Coulter shared. Her tirade included over thirty tweets including “So glad I took time investigate the aircraft & PRE-BOOK a specific seat on @Delta, so some woman could waltz at the last min & take my seat”.

Many other tweets attacked Delta employees personally and she compared the airline to fascists. Delta did not stay quiet on this issue. They tweeted out defending their employees and actions. The airline also went so far as to release a statement on their website condemning Coulter’s behavior. They said, “Each of our employees is charged with treating each other as well as our customers with dignity and respect. And we hold each other accountable when that does not happen. Delta expects mutual civility throughout the entire travel experience.” This is the first story in a long time that has painted the airline in a positive light.
@AnnCoulter Additionally, your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.

Although many approve of Delta’s actions in putting Coulter in her place, others said the airline should have been more careful in their dealings with high-profile travelers. I however believe Delta airlines reserves their right to address Coulter’s comments. Furthermore, it is unlikely they will lose any business based on this story.
