Mark Zuckerberg's Sister Harassed On Alaska Flight, Feels 'Disgusted'
03 December 2017, 01:40 | Marlene Fleming
Randi Zuckerberg complains of sexual harassment on Alaska Airlines flight from fellow passenger
In the letter written to the executives of the Seattle-based airline, Zuckerberg explained how a male passenger sitting next to her kept hurling lewd sexual remarks at her and the airline employees didn't care to interfere.
After her tweet had racked up thousands of retweets and likes, Zuckerberg tweeted an update, revealing that she had spoken to two Alaska Airlines execs on the phone.
The flight attendants then apparently offered to move Zuckerberg from her first-class seat to a middle seat "at the very back of the plane".
The man also rated and commented on the bodies of other women boarding the aircraft as they walked by, according to Zuckerberg. She said she nearly accepted the offer until she decided against it, thinking she should not have to move since she was the one being harassed.
Ms Zuckerberg said she and her colleague both reported the man's behaviour to the flight attendants, who, she added, shrugged off their complaints, saying that he was a frequent flyer who was known to act that way.
"When I brought it to the flight attendants' attention, their response was that this guy was a frequent Alaska Airlines traveller on this exact route, and they have had to talk to him about his behaviour in the past, but oh well, don't take it personally, this guy doesn't have a filter". "I guess his money means more than our safety?"
During the three-hour flight, the man was given multiple alcoholic drinks, she said, and continued to harass her the entire time.
Some people thanked her for being fearless enough to speak out and others offered their sympathy.
The airline said it contacted Zuckerberg about the "disturbing" claims and revoked the man's travel privileges pending the outcome of the investigation.
Zuckerberg wrote a lengthy email to the airline's leadership after leaving a flight feeling "disgusted" and "degraded." . We're fully investigating this situation and will take appropriate steps, as needed.
The airline said in part: "We want our guests to feel safe. As a company, we have zero tolerance for any type of misconduct that creates an unsafe environment for our guests and our employees".
It's unclear if or how the airline responded to the flight attendants who were criticized in Zuckerberg's letter.
