Delta Airlines fired back at Ann Coulter for her 'unnecessary and unacceptable' tweetstorm


Updated July 17, 2017 10:58 AM EDT

Delta Airlines fired back at Ann Coulter after she posted a series of negative tweets about the airline on Twitter.

Delta's official Twitter account wrote on Sunday that Coulter's actions are "unnecessary and unacceptable.”

Delta's response came a day after social media users defended the airline and condemned Coulter's remarks about its employees and people on board her plane.

U.S. airlines experienced a wave of condemnation in recent months, but, on Saturday, things were different: social media users rushed to defend Delta Airlines after Ann Coulter had blasted the aviation company on Twitter.

Coulter, a controversial right-wing commentator, likely was referring to the United Airlines incident in which a passenger, David Dao, refused to give up his seat for a flight attendant upon demand of management. Dao, who said he sustained a broken nose, a conconcussion and two lost teeth after guards forcibly removed him from his seat, ultimately reached an "amicable" settlement after weeks of backlash for United.

But Coulter didn't stop at the seat incident, continuing to tweet about her "treatment."

Unlike the David Dao incident, however, social media users responded to Coulter's "unfair treatment" in a much different way.

Coulter is known for her outspoken criticism of liberals, which she has detailed in nearly a dozen of books. Most recently, Coulter's scheduled speech at University of Berkeley erupted a violent firestorm on campus leading to the cancellation of the event.
