Randi Zuckerberg Skewers Alaska Air Over Passenger’s Sexually Charged Ranting

Randi Zuckerberg posted a scathing letter to Alaska Air on Twitter describing how a passenger on her flight harassed her and a colleague with sexually explicit ranting.

The co-founder of Zuckerberg Media and sister of Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg detailed the man’s lewd comments — and how the flight attendants simply brushed it off.

“Ironically one of those comments was about all the recent sexual harassment cases in the media and how ‘these Millenial women just aren’t willing to give some booty to get a job anymore,’” Zuckerberg wrote.

Zuckerberg reported the interaction leaving her “furious” — with the man, the flight attendants and with herself for not making more of a scene.

In a later tweet, she reported that Alaska Air had opened an investigation into the matter and temporarily suspended the offending passenger’s flying privileges.
