Trashy Airline Passenger Outrages the Internet

November 16, 2017 Updated: November 16, 2017

Have you ever been on a plane where you’ve had the urge to call out a fellow passenger for unruly behavior? One Reddit user has and posted a photo of the unsociable conduct.

The photo posted on Reddit’s “Trashy” forum on Nov. 10 depicts an airline passenger sitting next to a tray of trash in the aisle. Since posting, the photo has gone viral.

In the picture, the unnamed passenger can be seen reading a book in a seat next to a tray of half-eaten food placed in the aisle with trash littered around and under his seat. It is unknown whether the tray and trash belong to that passenger.

As of Nov. 15, the photo had garnered over 34,000 upvotes on Reddit and nearly 5,000 likes on Instagram.

Reddit users were quick to respond to the photo by relentlessly shaming the inexcusable behavior.

This will certainly serve as a reminder for people to be mindful of their behavior in public places.
