"I am a young professional lady. On July two, I took a industrial flight from New York to Dallas. Without my understanding or consent, other passengers photographed me and recorded my conversation with a seatmate. They posted photos and recordings to social media, and speculated unfairly about my private conduct.
Given that then, my private details has been extensively distributed on the web. Strangers publicly discussed my private life based on patently false details. I have been doxxed, shamed, insulted and harassed. Voyeurs have come looking for me on the internet and in the true world.
I did not ask for and do not seek attention. #PlaneBae is not a romance – it is a digital-age cautionary tale about privacy, identity, ethics and consent.
Please continue to respect my privacy, and my desire to stay anonymous."
Regardless of the statement claiming the flight was July 2, all the tweets have been posted July three.
