Why can’t people just mind their own business these days?
Everyone’s a social justice warrior.
In this case a white man didn’t like what another white man had texted about a “helpless” woman seated next to him on a United Air flight.
What do you think of white knights?
An Oklahoma woman has hailed a good Samaritan as her hero after he intervened when a passenger on a plane began to fat-shame her by calling her a ‘smelly fatty’.
Savannah Phillips boarded a United Airlines flight from Oklahoma to Chicago on Monday.
Before takeoff, the mother was seated next to a man whom she describes as ‘in his 60s with yellow sunglasses who claimed to be a comedian.’
‘As soon as I got buckled, he sat back down… his phone was maybe 12 inches from my face and he proceeded to text someone that he was sitting next to a “smelly fatty”,’ Phillips wrote on her Facebook page.
‘I don’t even know what the rest of his text said,’ she wrote.
‘I turned my head away as fast as I could. I was shocked and it was like confirmation of the negative things I think about myself on a daily basis.
‘Before I knew it, I could feel hot, salty tears coming down my face.’
Phillips told NewsChannel 5 that another man sitting across the aisle happened to see the text.
‘He tapped him on the shoulder and said, “I need to talk to you”,’ she recalled.
‘The guy took his earphones out and turned around and he said, “We’re switching seats right now”.’
Phillips said the passenger told the comedian he would not tolerate the text messages he was sending.
Immediately afterward, the two men switched seats.
‘When he sat down he saw me crying and asked why I was crying,’ Phillips said.
‘He said to not let it get to me and not to worry about it, and we started making small talk which made me feel better.’
It was later learned that the passenger who came to her aid was Chase Irwin, a manager at the Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row bar and restaurant in Nashville.
On the flight, Irwin took a picture of the man as he was texting.
‘This guy, prob mid 50s just text his wife that he is sitting next to a smelly fatty and was about to vomit,’ Irwin wrote on his Snapchat account as he took a picture of the man.
‘I watched her read his text and is now looking sad.
‘Should I New Mexico slap the **** out of him or just say something when landing?’
White women have no problem with affirmative action favoritism. They demand the right to marry other women and nonwhites, to do police work, fire fighting, and so forth.
But then they fold when a stranger says something slightly mean about them.
It’s a curious, sick culture we have in America.
Chase Irwin is no hero. And Savannah needs to lose some weight because to many men she’ll always be a fatty, nothing more and nothing less.
