A woman was kicked off an United Airlines flight after calling passengers sitting next to her “two big pigs.”

According to a report from the New York Post, the woman shouted into her cell phone, “Oh my goodness! I don’t know how I’m going to do this for the next four hours!

“This is just impossible ’cause they’re squashing me. Like just unbelievable,” she continued. “At least they’ll keep me warm. I can’t sit here because they’re both so big on left and right. I can’t even sit here.”

Nurse Norma Rodgers, sitting next to the visibly upset woman, captured the encounter on video.

Fed up with the woman’s antics, Rogers turned to a flight attendant for help with finding the woman a new seat. “Excuse me, can you find her another seat? Because I will not be verbally abused by this b—h or anybody else,” Rogers said.

The crew member asked if the woman if she could wait in the back of the plane to see if another seat was available.

Other passengers chimed in. “You should be ashamed of yourself, madam. What you’re doing is so terrible,” one passenger stated.

The woman lashed back, “I’m not politically correct. Why don’t you try and sit between those two big pigs?”

In a Facebook post that has more than 2 million views, Rodgers said airline crews eventually escorted the woman off the plane that was heading to Newark from Las Vegas.

“United flight attendants care about the safety and well-being of all of our customers which is why they acted quickly to find a different seat for the disruptive customer,” United spokesman Robert Einhorn said in a statement. “When it became clear that this passenger’s behavior was likely to be problematic on this flight, she was provided alternate travel arrangements first thing the next morning.”
