Sophia Bush had a not-so-pleasant experience aboard a plane on Friday – and she is letting the world know.
On Friday, the Chicago PD star took to Twitter to share a note she had written to a man she refers to as “Random Dude on a plane.”
She started the note by providing this man with guidelines to help him determine when to stop talking to a woman.
“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,” she wrote. “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.”
Bush then directly referred to her experience aboard the plane as a famous person, and brought up something Amy Schumer and Justin Bieber, among others, have spoken out against: the sometimes difficult relationship between celebrities and their fans.
“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,” she wrote. “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.”
Bush completed her note with the sign-off: “Signed, Every Woman On The Planet Who Is Sick of Your Creepy S–t.”
