Mark Zuckerberg's sister harassed on Alaska Airlines flight

Randi Zuckerberg Slams Alaska Airlines For Letting Drunk Passenger Harass Her Randi Zuckerberg complains of sexual harassment on Alaska Airlines flight from fellow passenger

Throughout the three hour flight, the man stayed in his seat, drank multiple alcoholic beverages and made offensive comments, Zuckerberg said.

Randi Zuckerberg just called out Alaska Airlines in a very public letter that will probably be trending soon on Facebook, the little website that her brother runs.

When she complained to flight attendants, she says they told her she shouldn't take it personally, and offered to move her seat, rather than her alleged harasser.

The New York Times noted there is no centralized database where data about sexual harassment on airlines is collected.

The man also rated and commented on the bodies of other women boarding the aircraft as they walked by, according to Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg debated switching her seat, until she realized, "Why should I have to move?"

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. The flight attendants told me he was a frequent flier, brushed off his behavior & kept giving him drinks.

"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.

Some people thanked her for being courageous enough to speak out and others offered their sympathy.

Meanwhile, Alaska Airlines has launched an investigation and has temporarily suspended her co-passenger's travel privileges. "While it never should have happened in the first place, I am thankful that they are taking the situation seriously". "As a company, we have zero tolerance for any type of sexual misconduct that creates an unsafe environment for our guests and crew members", the airline reportedly said.

"What's infuriating is that as women (ex: the flight attendants) we're programmed to grin & bear it, giggle it off & make excuses for men who don't know how to behave", Venture Capitalist Elizabeth Galbut tweeted in response.

In the recent times, a number of cases of harassment were faced by flight passengers on board but a lot of them are either brushed aside by authorities or dissolve with time.
