This isn’t the first time that Sophia Bush has taken to social media to stand up for herself. A few years ago, she has a violent stalker on social media that she decided to write to. One thing about Sophia is that she does speak for what she believes in, something that I really commend her for.
This time Sophia decided to pen an open letter directed towards a fellow passenger who made not only her uncomfortable, but made the entire plane feel uncomfortable. She addressed it to “Random Dude on a plane”, and it is very powerful.
The letter goes on to say.
“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 to not 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. 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, 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.”

Glad you were able to stick up for yourself and it is a damn shame that Sophia has to deal with that.
