Amber Phillips Feminist
Writer and activist Amber J. Phillips documented on Twitter a disturbing incident she recently endured on an American Airlines flight.
The 28-year-old was on a short, 45-minute commuter flight from North Carolina to D.C. when she found herself in close quarters with her white, female seatmate. According to Phillips, the woman repeatedly moved Phillips’ arm, pushing her into the window and also demanded that Phillips move so as not to touch her.
After Phillips videoed her seatmate, she made her way to the airport shuttle, but police officers met her there and forced Phillips off the shuttle to question her about the woman’s assault allegations.
Phillips says that after an uncomfortable interaction with the police, she left the airport with no arrest, no charges, but also no apologies. It was a chilling experience for her as she imagined the many different ways that her story could have ended.
American Airlines customer service representatives have yet to reach out to Phillips, or vice-versa, to discuss the incident.
Being Fat and Black with Dignity
Phillips, who is 5’10 and describes herself as having a “fat Black body,” believes it was her race as well as her size that made her a target in this situation.
“I know for sure this happens to people all the time. My friends and I talk about the anxiety we feel when we fly. Who sits next to you determines if it will be a pleasant experience or an awful experience. Does the person sitting next to me automatically hate me because of my size, race, or gender?” asks Phillips. “I have a right to be in this world. Body shaming doesn’t stop and start at my clothing options.”
Amber Phillips American Airlines
Amber Phillips stepped on an American Airlines flight from Raleigh-Durham to Washington on Thursday evening and immediately noticed how small the plane was. There were 65 seats, just two in each row.
When Phillips sat down, her arm rested next to that of the passenger in the adjacent seat, she said. Their arms were touching.
“I was thinking, I really hope she doesn’t treat me mean,” said Phillips, 28, who lives in Washington. “She was fidgeting, and finally she looks at me and goes, ‘Can you move over?’ ”
Phillips told her: “No, I actually can’t. I’m in the window seat.”
Phillips said she noticed the woman was growing increasingly annoyed at the tight space they were in.
“I wasn’t going to say anything because I know how hard it is for people who are perceived as fat to say, ‘I was mistreated,’ ” said Phillips, who shared her experience in a series of viral tweets, including one that said, “The cops were called on me for flying while fat & Black.”
But soon, Phillips decided not to hold her tongue. As the flight progressed, the woman rested her ankle on her own her knee, so the bottom of her foot was facing Phillips, she said.
Phillips said she felt that the woman was trying to push her closer to the window.
“I said, ‘you’re being awful, don’t let the bottom of your foot touch me,’ ” Phillips said.
The woman, Phillips said, responded.
“She turned my words and said I was being mean,” said Phillips, co-host of the podcast “The Black Joy Mixtape.”
Things were tense.
“The whole time I was sitting there I was trying not to cry,” Phillips said. “I dropped my headphones, and I was afraid to pick them up.”
Phillips said she then grabbed her cellphone and started recording the woman on the plane. The woman tried to block her face from Phillips’s camera. Then the woman complained to a flight attendant about Phillips, she said.
