Ann Coulter is mad at Delta.

Coulter tweeted a photo of the passenger who was given her seat to her 1.6 million followers, complaining that she wasn't "an air marshall or tall person", nor was she "elderly, child, or sick".

"$30! It cost me $10,000 of my time to pre-select the seat I wanted, investigate type of plane & go back periodically to review seat options", she tweeted Saturday evening.

Delta responded to Coulter on Twitter on Sunday night that it was refunding her the extra $30 she paid for her preferred seat. Coulter rebutted it cost her $10,000 in time and effort to do all the legwork to ensure she had legroom.

Then Coulter took aim at the "dachshund-legged" passenger who took allegedly took her seat, and Delta staff who she likened to "stasi" policemen.

Coulter continued her rant well into Sunday by bashing Delta flight attendants and gate agents as "Nurse Ratchets".

Now Delta has had its fair share of bad news over the years, including in the wake of the United incident where a passenger was dragged off the flight. "We are aware of the customer's comment and we're reaching out directly to her to address the complaint", he said.

Conservative political commentator and author Ann Coulter discusses her latest book, "Adios, America: The Left's Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole" on June 17, 2015 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. Following the flight, crew members reported that there were no problems or concerns escalated. At the very least, the airline could offer a proper explanation for the seat change and guarantee some sort of concession for a future flight.

Was it really necessary to take photos of a young woman, without even bothering to ask her name? I would like to look into this further.

As Coulter persisted in chiding Delta Airlines, social media users started to weigh in on the situation.

After her Twitter tantrum, the tides turned quickly on Coulter, who often slams liberals and people of color for playing the "victim card."
