The woman who punches the man who poses her airplane seat is planning to make American Airlines defamatory
Wendi Williams discusses legal action with her lawyer after an American airline representative claimed that she knocked over the man’s drink when she leaned back
A woman who has taken on an American Airlines passenger who has repeatedly hit her seat plans to sue the airline for defamation.
Wendi Williams explained TMZ that she discussed legal action with her lawyer after comments from an airline representative had settled her.
The American representative told the site that they had tried to eliminate the situation after Williams knocked over the other passenger’s drink as she leaned back.
Moreover, the representative claimed that the whole test could have been dealt with if the two had been more respectful of each other.
Williams took her Twitter to address the representative’s statement.
“@AmericanAir Please remember that you cannot blame anything about what happened to your terrible airline with your rude stewardess! And if I accidentally spilled a drink on the “man” – I had NO idea that it would happen, “she said Friday.
Wendi Williams was nearly thrown from the flight from New Orleans to Charlotte on January 31 when the man began to “hit” the back of her chair.
She said TMZ on Friday that the worst of the “attack” occurred before she started filming it on her cell phone, and now she wants to identify the man to file charges against him.
She also wants the air hostess, Loretta, who intervened to be fired because she claims she escalated the situation by threatening to arrest her instead of telling the man to stop beating her “like a child.”

“I want to know who he is, I want to file a complaint against this man. I was attacked in this plane.
“And I would like Loretta to be fired,” she said.
Williams, a mother-from-one from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, said the worst of the “punching” happened before she started filming.
“Everyone thinks when I said he hit me, what was in the video. He hit my chair hard, I thought video recording would stop him.
“The video is an irritation, but what he did before was abuse. It happened once and I thought maybe – who knows – an accident.
“At that time it happened for 20 to 30 seconds. It has probably happened eight times and then I started with videos, “she said.

After asking the man what his problem was, she raised her hand to attract the attention of the stewardess.
Williams says, however, that she was shocked when the woman not only took the man’s side and said, “Oh, it is tight here,” but threatened to arrest her if she had not removed the video.

“She came over swollen and came over to me and I said,” He hits me like a child repeatedly, “and she said,” Oh, it’s tight here. ”
Williams said she didn’t want to report the incident to the FBI – who handles air incidents – but she wants American Airlines to resolve it.
That’s why she posted the video on Twitter, she said.
Travelers have shared the images since they shared it earlier this week.
Delta CEO Ed Bastian agreed to the debate on aircraft etiquette on Friday when he said so CNBC that passengers must ask permission from the person behind them to put their seats back – and that they never lean back.
Etiquette expert William Hanson gave his verdict on Thursday when he said: ‘Two mistakes do not do justice.
‘We all agree that it is annoying when the car in front leans back, but it is within their rights to do that.
“The only time it is wrong is when the meal service is still taking place and has yet to be deleted.”
