    Are you serious? ?
    Ohhhh poor girl.
    She is a survivor
    She would get through this

  • Meag_ Ken says:

    Awe Elizabeth my heart goes out to you. This situation just goes to show I don’t think anyone is ever fully prepared to deal with a situation such as this. Please don’t be hard on yourself. I think most of us would freeze. Please don’t be angry. You’re so strong ❤️

  • Blooming Accents says:

    I am shocked that her career is that of a speaker against sexual assault and she didn’t see this incident as an assault. She did not give him permission to touch her at all. She could have pretended to go to the bathroom and reported it.
    My son is a Delta Pilot and I can tell you that he would have had police at the gate upon arrival had she informed the crew.


    Just fast forward 🔼….

    I want to know what happened to this guy. I wish she could have had the confidence to yell out! We women have to learn to make noise and not feel embarrassed. Especially on a plane. We have to teach our young girls to make noise because I’ve heard of young girls traveling by themselves getting molested.

  • Hollins23 says:

    I love what Dr. Oz said about how we all would have frozen in that moment.

  • Hollins23 says:

    This makes me want to put a wearable body cam on myself, aimed at my private parts, for when I’m on an airplane sleeping!! Maybe I’ll invest in some spy apps on my mobile phone, or fake reading glasses/ wallet/ purse/ overhead luggage hook cam. The whole world has to be under surveillance now, it seems! It’s always the jerks that ruin it for everybody!

  • Catty C-Fox says:

    ohh my God, how can there be people so disgusting that they have no respect for anything, I’m sorry for this woman who experienced that horrible moment again.

  • patti k says:

    Next time slap the poop right out him and have him arrested . Seriously I would not freeze up in a situation like that I would have slapped that man upside his head and insisted he be arrested as soon as that plane landed.

  • Mednight Poison says:

    She should have stabbed his eye out with a pen, I know I would!

  • BevLovely says:

    That’s exactly what I was going to suggest! Self defense training.

  • Sister Grace says:

    Elizabeth’s reaction is very common fie survivors. As a survivor of horrific sexual childhood abuse myself
    As a survivor of assault as an adult
    I know first hand about being quiet .
    I’ve been celibate for 10 years outside of being raped
    After a man who said he’d wait for marriage a Beverly Hills law professor pulled a Bill Cosby & raped me ,
    rather then go to the police
    I tried to commit suicide
    & almost succeeded .
    I’m so proud of her for speaking out .

  • Willie Wonka says:

    I wish I was on that plane and knew this was going on 🤬🤬🤬🤬

  • Sara Momed says:

    This is so sad I can’t imagine the disappointment she went through the battle scars ripped open and stung with this pain once more

  • anne kennedy says:

    way to go on doing self defence a great skill to have we need more of these programs

  • Graeme Bauer says:

    Sounds like she’s been getting self exposure tips from Jussie Smollet.

  • katerina z says:

    i blame myself for sexual abuse starting on and off as a child i cant process it i get why she froze id be the same

  • katerina z says:

    true i always try justify the absuse that was against me like well maybe this maybe that wtc

  • Sue Chun says:

    Happy Valentines Day 2020 to all!!!

  • yoloduran duran says:

    Evil people count on good people freezing. Prey and predator.
