Conservative commentator Ann Coulter spent parts of Saturday, Sunday, and Monday tweeting complaints about Delta Airlines after she said the airline gave away her assigned seat, one with extra room for which she paid a premium. Coulter also tweeted a photo of the woman to whom the airline supposedly gave her seat and compared Delta employees to animal handlers and Cold War-era East German police.

After the airline said it would refund Coulter the $30 she allegedly spent on the seat upgrade and deemed her insults “unacceptable and unnecessary,” Coulter posted her most roundly criticized tweet of the entire saga, claiming that pre-selecting the seat, doing research on flights, and periodically checking for different seating options cost her “$10,000 of my time.”

Of the more than 5,000 replies Coulter received at the time of this article’s publication, the most popular came from actor and Sudbury native Chris Evans, who mocked Coulter’s lofty valuation of her own time.


“I totally get it,” Evans wrote. “It costs me 75k to brush my teeth. I must pre-select a brush, investigate types of paste, and periodically spit bull****.”

Evans ended his tweet with the snowflake emoji, perhaps referencing the pejorative term popularized by conservatives for people who they consider to be too politically correct or easily offended.

Evans frequently uses his Twitter to tweet and retweet criticisms of President Donald Trump, and to share his positions on current events, such as the debate over net neutrality and the Adam Jones Fenway Park incident.
