Tag someone who probably does this…🤢

A post shared by Shaun White (@shaunwhite) on

White captioned the video, posted Dec. 1, “Tag someone who probably does this…” with a disgusted emoji. The video was also reposted by Shawn Kathleen’s Passenger Shaming, an Instagram account dedicated to calling out unruly passenger behavior. While this is not the worst we’ve seen aboard a plane (the passenger could’ve used an air vent to dry her underwear, for example) it certainly seems unpleasant.

For now, if you’re the kind of person “who probably does this,” here is some helpful advice from the TPG staff to go by when you’re feeling tempted to kick off your shoes aboard a plane. This way, you won’t get publicly roasted by Passenger Shaming, Shaun White and his 1.2 million Instagram followers.
