The video’s caption stated, “Had to do something,” but speculation arises whether it was all a jest. Some commenters believe the video was staged, asserting that the man is acquainted with the other passenger. Despite questions, the Walker twins, the account owners, remained silent on Insider’s inquiry.
Prompting viewers with the question, “What would you do in this situation?” the video elicited diverse responses. One person recounted a similar experience involving their daughter and a nearby foot, stating, “This happened to my daughter, but the foot was beside her face. I got up and said move it now!”
With nearly 23,000 comments expressing outrage over the audacious act, many lauded the man for standing up against the passenger. One commenter emphasized, “Right on, I’m so tired of people and their lack of respect for others.” The pervasive theme suggests that the cramped confines of air travel may contribute to such discourteous behavior.
