Sophia Bush has called out one man for what she described as his obliviously “creepy” behavior toward a fellow woman who was on the same flight as she was.
The actress on Friday shared an open letter via Twitter, addressed to a “random dude on a plane.” It appears Bush noticed the man trying to get a woman’s attention, failing to realize that the woman may have wanted to be left alone. (Was he taking notes from this?) It’s unclear whether Bush said anything to the man or woman while on the plane.
Her note began: “When you make a woman so visibly uncomfortable, that after you’ve ignored all visual cues to please leave her alone (one word answers, she pulls out a book, puts on a hat, she actually asks you to not speak to her with the tone and words you’re choosing to use) that she finally GETS UP and MOVES SEATS, leave her alone. Do not continue trying to make conversation.”
“Stop turning around and looking at her,” the actress added. “Stop leaning out of your seat and towards her body when she has to grab something out of the overhead bin above her original seat, and sadly also above you, mid-flight.”
The actress also had her own interaction with the man, who she felt had an air of entitlement just because he watched her TV show.
“You do not get to harass me, or any woman, because you think you pay our bills. You don’t bro, I DO,” she wrote, signing the letter on behalf of “every woman on the planet who is sick of your creepy shit.”
So, “random dude on a plane,” next time you find yourself in this situation, mind your own business.
