Punching Reclined Seat refers to a viral video featuring a man sitting behind a woman in the last row on an American Airlines flight, punching her and viral debate surrounding whether or not people should recline their seats on planes altogether, attempting to decide who was in the right or wrong .

The incident began on an American Eagle regional flight from New Orleans to Charlotte after Williams was returning from a teaching convention. A man — who is unidentified in the video clip posted to her Twitter — allegedly asked Williams to position her seat upright as he ate. She did, and when he finished, Williams reclined her seat again.

"At that point, he started hammering away at me," she wrote. "That's when I started videoing and tried to call" the flight attendant.

Then, according to Williams, the man became agitated and began to perform a punching motion against the back of her seat, shaking her as the nudging continued. "He was angry that I reclined my seat and punched it about 9 times," she wrote. "HARD, at which point I began videoing him, and he resigned to this behavior."

Williams said after she called for a flight attendant to intervene, not only was she of no help but, in her view, she also made a bad situation worse. "She rolled her eyes at me and said, 'What?' she wrote. "She then told him it was tight back there and gave him rum!"

Another Twitter user, who responded to Williams’ tweets, asked how she was feeling after the experience, to which Williams replied using “#whiplash.” “I’m in pain,” she wrote. “I have 1 cervical disk left that isn’t fused — the first 1 which allows me some mobility. It’s scary bc it’s this the kind of injury that could do it in.”

Reaction across social media has been split, with hundreds of users admonishing the male passenger's behavior: "There is no reason to allow people to act like he did. That's why they allow you to pick your seat when you book your flight. Obviously he picked the wrong row or bought the cheapest ticket available," one user wrote.

"I was contacted via phone by @AmericanAir, they apologized but really didn't accept any responsibility for the flight attendant's actions. I will be calling the FBI to press charges against the 'man' who mistook me for a punching bag. Anyone who doesn't like it, I don't care!
