Ann Coulter throws two-day Twitter tantrum against Delta

Ann Coulter isn't happy with Delta

For the last twenty hours and counting, Ann Coulter has been on an tirade after Delta Airlines apparently decided Saturday to force her to leave her pre-booked seat - which apparently had extra leg room - and switch with another passenger elsewhere on the flight.

After the seat mix-up on her flight, Coulter has spent most of the weekend on a one-woman crusade, tweeting directly at Delta, calling out the flight crew, the social media team and even the CEO Ed Bastian repeatedly on her Twitter account. The Conservative pundit reportedly reserved an "extra room seat" well ahead of the flight, thinking that all would be fine and it would be an uneventful trip.

She joked that Delta hires people who seek to be prison guards, animal handlers or East German police.

In a second photo, Coulter showed a woman seated in an aisle seat who she claims took her original seat.

Delta also took to Twitter to react to Coulter's criticism.

The six-foot-tall Coulter had booked an aisle seat for the extra legroom during the flight from NY to Palm Beach, Florida.

Coulter tweeted a photo of the passenger who was given her seat to her 1.6 million followers, complaining that she wasn't "an air marshall or tall person", nor was she "elderly, child, or sick".

"Her actions are unnecessary and unacceptable", the statement added.

During the New York-to-Florida flight, Coulter says he was asked to move from her pre-booked seat to another spot. And we hold each other accountable when that does not happen. The airline said it "inadvertently" moved Coulter to 15A, a window seat, to accommodate several passengers with seating requests. The airline said a flight attendant had stepped in to deal with "confusion" arising from the seat reassignment and that "all customers complied and the flight departed without incident". Delta expects mutual civility throughout the entire travel experience.

On Sunday evening, Delta responded to Coulter on Twitter and said it will refund the $30 she had paid for the preferred seat. "Here's the woman given my PRE-BOOKED seat".
