Ann Coulter throws two-day Twitter tantrum against Delta

Ann Coulter

Delta Airlines fired back at Ann Coulter on Sunday describing the conservative author and pundit's weekend-long barrage of insults and heated criticism as "unacceptable and unnecessary".

Another airline complaint. Ann Coulter went on a rant against Delta Airlines after she was allegedly booted from her pre-booked extra-space seat without an explanation on a flight from New York City's LaGuardia Airport to Palm Beach International Airport.

She subsequently detailed how she was asked to move from a seat with extra leg room that she had "carefully chosen in advance and booked", posting a picture of the woman her seat was given to and targeting the airline's employees.

Coulter also implied that the problem with Delta gate agents is that they are protected by a union when she tweeted "Does your union hate you, @Delta?"

Delta's statement came in response to Coulter's bashing of the airline on Twitter.

The company statement added that they tried to contact Ms Coulter in order to apologise and refund her the $30 (£23) cost that she paid to pre-book the seat, but did not hear back from her until Sunday night.

If you're clamoring to know how Coulter is coping with this recent indignity, don't worry.

More than 32 seemingly angry tweets by Coulter followed her inconvenience on a flight from NY to Florida.

According to Brandwatch, activity around the Delta brand increased by almost 1,400%, while activity around Coulter rose by almost 2,700% on social media between July 14 and 16. Immigrants take American jobs (& seats on @Delta). If Delta had approached Coulter and said, "This young woman would like to sit with her family, and three seats weren't available together - do you mind moving?" perhaps Coulter would have willingly done so. In fact, the whole dispute concerned a $30 seat upgrade, according to Delta, which has promised to refund Coulter for her inconvenience.

Coulter recorded the entire event in a series of images and video footage, which she later posted onto Twitter so that her 1,6 million followers could leave their own comments about Delta's actions.

After almost a day, Delta replied and took her to task on Twitter. Airlines can also deny boarding if a passenger is intoxicated, fails to listen to flight attendants or is barefoot.

Over the past several months, Delta Airlines mostly made headlines for the worst reasons.
