One woman’s video of the airline passenger behind her punching the back of her reclined seat went viral last week.
Now she is reportedly looking to sue American Airlines.
The controversy began when Wendi Williams posted a video on Twitter of the passenger behind her shaking her headrest with repeated punches on her Jan. 31 American Eagle flight from New Orleans to Charlotte, North Carolina.
The man behind her was in the last row and reportedly asked the woman to sit upright so he could eat.
She did, but then later reclined again, and the situation escalated as was shown in the video that was recorded, according to Fox Business.
According to TMZ, an airline representative said the incident started after the woman knocked over the other passenger’s drink when she reclined her seat.
The representative also said the situation would not have escalated in the way that it had if both passengers were respectful of each other.
