Referring to the passenger who was given the extra room seat as "the WOMAN", which shamed an innocent Delta passenger needlessly, brought out the memes and a Twitter storm that inadvertently gave Kudos to Delta and an opportunity for trolling back at Coulter.

Conservative commentator Ann Coulter took to Twitter to express her displeasure with Delta Airlines about a seating dispute.

She also said Delta gave her seat to someone who wasn't taller than her.

Coulter tweeted at Delta on Saturday - apparently after her flight from New York's La Guardia airport to West Palm Beach, Florida, had landed - calling it the "worst airline in America".

Instead of calming the situation, Delta's response to Coulter enraged her even more and she continued to rage tweet at the airline late into Sunday.

A spokesman for Delta told International Business Times on Saturday that Coulter was in the same extra room row, although she was given a different seat.

Ann was allegedly offered a refund of the $30 she paid for her preferred seat.

Coulter's rant against the airline, which lasted about two hours, included complaints about the flight's WiFi, which she claims wasn't working, "probably to prevent passengers from tweeting from the plane about how they're being treated". She also accused them of "summarily snatching my ticket from my hand & ordering me to move w/o explanation, compensation or apology". Of course, she ended that tweet with "Delta sucks". And we hold each other accountable when that does not happen.

Though she accomplished what she wanted by publicly airing her displeasure with Delta, Coulter was specifically rebuked for tweeting the picture of the woman who was placed in her seat.

"Delta expects mutual civility throughout the entire travel experience", it said.

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".
