Natalie Hage satt på et fly fra Dallas til Los Angeles da hun plutselig oppdaget at mannen i setet ved siden av skrev stygge meldinger som handlet om henne.

Mannen hadde stønnet og sukket høylydt da Hage satte seg ned ved siden av ham noe tidligere, forteller Hage på sin Instagram-profil.

Plus size-modellen forteller at mannen forsøkte å skjule det han skrev, men at hun likevel klarte å lese det flere ganger. Faktisk lyktes hun også i å ta et bilde av skjermen hans hvor flere av meldingene er synlige.

«Det var en rekke ondskapsfulle og nedlatende meldinger, og de handlet om meg. Jeg er også ganske sikker på at han smugfotograferte meg. Meldingene ble sendt til en kvinne som het Linda, – en person som ikke engang kunne se situasjonen», skriver hun i innlegget.


– Spist en hel mexikaner
I meldingsutvekslingen som mannen hadde med «Linda», skrev han blant annet at han håpet det ikke ble merke på vinduet, ettersom han var så hardt presset mot veggen.

«La oss håpe hun ikke har spist mexikansk mat», svarte Linda.

«Jeg tror hun har spist en hel mexikaner», skal mannen ha respondert med.

Hage forteller også om en rekke andre nedlatende meldinger, som blant annet handlet om at setene i flyet kunne komme til å knekke.

i'm shaking right now. i'm on a flight to LA right now on @americanair. i paid almost $70 extra for this seat i'm in because i know i need a little extra leg room. i'm extremely flight anxious but there were only middle seats available so i had to take what i could get. as soon as i sat down, the gentleman on my left began LOUDLY huffing, sighing, and readjusting himself in his seat. i see him furiously texting and then purposefully turning the phone away from me. so, naturally next time he texts, i take a look. the texts were about me and i'm almost positive he took photos of me. not only were the texts about me, but they were really mean and ugly, with even the recipient named 'linda' chiming back with shaming retorts...someone who can't even see the situation. if you can't read the texts, it says 'hopefully she didn't have any mexican food' and his response is 'i think she ate a mexican'. then he proceeds to say he's leaving a 'neck mark on the window' because he's so smashed against the wall. from the photos, you can see i'm not in his space. he's even taken over both arm rests on purpose, coming to my space and digging his elbows into my side...which is in my seat. his next text to her was 'if the news reports a DFW airbus a321 leaving the runway without rotating, that would be my flight.' another i see later? 'if these seats don't hold, it's not going to matter.' and that's just a few of them. there were several more. i didn't do anything to him. i'm in my seat, completely (see photos). i am crumpled into a ball trying to not bother. i'm just so upset. i asked the other man to my right if he'd switch me and told him what the man was saying about me and he said laughed and refused. that's fine, it's not his issue. this is a fat person's daily reality and not just on a plane. this is on a bus, standing in line at the grocery store, at a concert, on the internet. you can be completely in your own space, not bothering anyone, and people will still fuck with you and try to hurt you. all you can do is know you haven't done anything wrong just by existing and to move on. this just makes me a mixture of enraged and super sad.

Natalie sier til Daily Mail at hun hadde betalt 70 dollar for å få ekstra benplass, men at hun ble engstelig og skuffet da det viste seg at hun hadde fått et midtsete.

Hun forsøkte derfor å «krype sammen som en ball» for ikke å være til bry. Mannen med telefonen skal ha brukt begge armlenene og nærmest boret albuene inn i siden hennes, hevder hun.

«Holy shit-ansikt»
Da flyturen var over, valgte Hage å konfrontere medpassasjeren med det han hadde gjort. Han nektet først, men da hun gjenga flere meldinger ordrett, innrømmet han det.

– Jeg drakk før avreise, jeg beklager, sier mannen i en video som Hage har lagt ut på sin Facebook-side.

Hun beskriver i innlegget at mannen fikk et «holy shit»-uttrykk i ansiktet da hun konfronterte ham. Hun valgte imidlertid å la være å filme ansiktet hans, ettersom hun ikke hadde fått hans tillatelse til dette.

Ifølge plus size-modellen er dette langt fra første gang hun har blitt sjikanert av fremmede for vekten.

«Dette er hverdagen for overvektige mennesker, og ikke en enkeltstående situasjon på et fly. Dette skjer på bussen, i køen i matbutikken, på en konsert eller på sosiale medier. Øyeblikk der du går i din egen verden og ikke sjenerer noen», skriver Hage.

Videoen har i skrivende stund 1,2 millioner visninger på Facebook, og den er likt, delt og kommentert mer enn 14.000 ganger.


there's a LOT more of you following my page than there was a few days ago. to you, i say HI! welcome to my weird little life. with a lot of new people comes a lot more comment traffic and in turn, a LOT of new, hateful people that come to say terrible things on my photos who don't know me as a person in the slightest. they don't know that i started a new job eight months ago and have rocked it since i began and recently got a cool new position because of it. they don't know that i'm a (more than) full time student on top of working full time. they don't know that i have a beautiful boyfriend. they don't know that i have a ton of perfect friends who love me. they don't know that i have an eating disorder. they don't know that i'm a really good singer. they don't know i'm a kind person. they don't know i have PCOS (its genetic and doesn't just affect fat people). they don't know that i'm really good at trivia. they don't know that i'm a good dancer. they don't know that my doctor can't stop praising how healthy i am and is proud of how i take care of my fat body. they don't know anything about me and they don't care. they see my body and assume a billion things about me. concern trolls do not care about my health. they care about my fat. i don't need you to worry about me, i'm doing damn good in life. also, even if i was 'unhealthy', that isn't an invitation for cruelty. if after knowing ALL this about me you just can't help yourself but to be a dick, you can take several seats and watch me continue to kick life's ass.
