Being a celebrity doesn't make you immune from getting harassed by total strangers, as actress Sophia Bush was reminded on a recent flight. And so the Chicago P.D. star wrote an angry open letter on Twitter, signed "Every Woman On The Planet Who Is Sick Of Your Creepy Sh*t."
The letter reads:
Dear Random Dude on a plane,
When you make a woman so visibly uncomfortable, that after you've ignored all visual cues to please leave her alone (one word answers, she pulls out a book, puts on a hat, she actually asks you not to speak to her with the tone and words you're choosing to use) that she finally GETS UP and MOVES SEATS, leave her alone. Do not continue trying to make conversation. Stop turning around and looking at her. Stop leaning out of your seat and towards her body when she has to grab something out of the overhead bin above her original seat, and sadly also above you, mid-flight.
And in my case, stop believing that you are entitled to make me uncomfortable because you "watch my TV show" so I owe you some magical debt. I make it, you watch it. After that, the "exchange" is done. You do not get to harass me, or any woman, because you think you pay our bills. You don't bro, I DO.
Every Woman On The Planet Who Is Sick of Your Creepy Sh*t
Hopefully this dude will be shamed into now doing only normal person behaviors while on an airplane, like trying to sleep on the fold-out tray, or attempting to enjoy the flight's showing of The Age of Adaline.
