Woman on plane is STUNNED to see man sitting next to her calling her a ‘fat a**’ over text message

A Texas woman was stunned to discover that the man sitting next to her on a plane was complaining about how fat she was to his girlfriend via text message. 

Landen Ewing, a baker from Amarillo, Texas, was flying home from Nashville a month ago when she glanced over at the phone screen of the man sitting next to her.

The man was holding his phone ‘way out in front of him’ making it easy for Landen to see that he was moaning about the ‘fat a**’ sitting next to him, going so far as to joke that Landen was so heavy that the plane wouldn’t even get off the ground.

'She's asking him how the flight's going, just casual conversation like that,' Landen recalled. 'And he says, "Too small with this fat a** next to me,"' she said

 ‘She’s asking him how the flight’s going, just casual conversation like that,’ Landen recalled. ‘And he says, “Too small with this fat a** next to me,”‘ she said

Landen shared her story on TikTok, where her video is going viral with 1.2 million views in three days. 

‘About a month ago, I was on a plane coming back from Nashville, and I was sitting on the plane and this guy sits next to me,’ she began.

‘And it’s just me and him and the row. We weren’t sitting next to anyone. It was just me and him. And he has his phone out, like way out in front of him, where I can see it,’ she said.

She didn’t have to look to closely to see what was on his screen, and she noticed that he was texting his girlfriend.

‘She’s asking him how the flight’s going, just casual conversation like that,’ Landen recalled. 

‘And he says, “Too small with this fat a** next to me,”‘ she said. ‘Like, he was talking about me!’

Rude! She didn't have to look to closely to see what was on his screen, and said there wasn't anyone on his other side

Landen — who has showed off her tiny waist in crop tops on Instagram — was clearly shocked by the rude text messages.

She kept reading as the man’s girlfriend responded, saying he should ‘tell her about keto.’ 

‘I’ll be alright; don’t think we’ll get off the ground,’ the man texted back.

Landen managed to snap a stealth photo of the man’s phone, and said he went on to complain about ‘how fat I was,’ that it was awful, and how he ‘hates being on small flights with fat people.’

‘I lowkey think he wanted me to see that,’ she later added. 

‘So if you’re his wife or girlfriend and you see this, your boyfriend sucks!’ she concluded. 

TikTok commenters were both horrified on Landen’s behalf and suspicious of the man, with one writing: ‘Yea, you’re gorgeous. Sounds like he’s been in trouble with his GF before and that had nothing to do with you. But I’m sorry you had to read that.’

‘He totally thought you were hot and did not want his gf to know he was sitting next to someone attractive… yikes,’ wrote another.

‘No sis he thought you were beautiful and his gf is so insecure that she doesn’t trust him,’ said a third.

Landen followed up with another video to assure viewers that she wasn’t actually offended by what she saw. 

‘I’m OK, I’m not upset. I honestly didn’t spend more than an hour thinking about it,’ she said. ‘I thought it was funny. I texted my family and was like, “Look at what this guy said” and we were laughing about it,’ she said.

However, she said it’s ‘sad’ that she could have been someone who would have been more affected by the comments.

‘Like imagine if it would have been someone who was super insecure, or dealing with a lot of body image stuff, and they saw him text that about them. That could have ruined their whole day, week, year.’

‘It’s just one of those things, just a reminder to be kind and really think about the things you say,’ she said.
