Savannah said this man was texting about having to sit next to a'smelly fatty

She began by saying that she's self-conscious when she flies because "I'm not the biggest person on the plane, but I'm not the smallest". "My worst nightmare is someone being uncomfortable because they have to sit next to me".

A United Airlines passenger is receiving praise after he made a decision to intervene when he saw another passenger being body-shamed.

Her post stated,"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". I know that was hurtful to you and for that, I'm also sorry.

"I was shocked and it was like confirmation of the negative things I think about myself on a daily basis", the woman said.

The stranger, whom she later identified as Mr Irwin, told the man: "We are switching seats. Now".

Chase, whose surname is Irwin, told NewsChannel5 that he did not intervene for publicity but rather because he felt infuriated after seeing the message on the man's phone, which went on to say that he was going to vomit. After the passenger seated beside her asked why, the man replied: "You are texting about her and I'm not putting up with that". "I sat and cried silently, hoping this guy didn't try to make small talk, because I didn't trust how I would react and I didn't want to get kicked off the plane", she wrote.

When Savannah saw a text her seatmate was writing about her, the horrified passenger couldn't stop the tears.

And when he learnt that she had seen the text messages, Mr Irwin encouraged her not to let the man get to her and reassured her that things would be fine, she added. We talked about Ross and the kids, his two year old son, our jobs, amongst other things.

"He said he just happened to see that guy's text messages; he started shaking [because] he was so mad and knew he had to do something". He stopped the flight attendant and told her what he was about to do.

Irwin told the flight attendant what he meant to do before he switched seats with the man. Phillips wrote that the attendant "kept trying to give him free drinks and told him that he was her hero".

Phillips' post has gone viral on her Facebook page, where people are hailing Irwin as a "Good Samaritan" and "angel".

Mr Irwin told Nashville's NewsChannel 5 on Tuesday that he was initially going to wait till the end of the flight to say something, but he "could not have this guy sit next to her this whole flight and her thinking he's making fun of her".

"I told him that he was a blessing sent to me and how thankful I was that he was there".

Ultimately, Phillips said the experience left her confident that "there are more good people in the world than bad". You possibly can WhatsApp us on 07810 791 502. "It has warmed the heart of our entire team".

United Airlines had kind words for Irwin, too.
