Update: An Eyewitness to the “Diet Coke” Incident on United Airlines

An eyewitness has come forward with a report on the recent incident in which a young Muslima raised a ruckus over being “discriminated against” on a United Airlines flight for not being allowed to have an unopened can of Diet Coke. The following entry was posted on June 1 by “ComeFlyWithMe33” on the Flyer Talk forum:

This lady is not telling the truth

I was actually on this flight on Friday evening from ORD to DCA. I have been a reader of this forum for a long time but seeing this all over the news made me sign up so I could tell you what really happened here and hopefully stop this liar in her tracks. I was sitting close enough to her to hear everything that was said. The flight attendant came up to the lady (I believe she even took her order first in the entire cabin as she was seated in the bulkhead 7d) and took her order. She ordered a coke zero and a hot green tea with a Splenda. The flight attendant handed her a full diet coke with a cup on top and then told her that the green tea would take a few minutes and she would get it to her ASAP. The lady said very rudely and condescending to the FA that she ordered a coke zero and basically pushed the soda back to the flight attendant. The FA said she was sorry and attempted to find a coke zero for her (which she did not have many of) and told her that she could only give her a portion of the can not the full can. This is when the lady in question started to freak out and told the FA “What do you think I will use this as a weapon?! Why can’t I have the whole can? I think you are discriminating against me. I need your name….” The lady just kept yelling to her “I need your name… I am being discriminated against.” This is when a few passengers told her to calm down and one guy told her to “shut her mouth and she is being ridiculous over a can of coke”. No one ever said anything anti-Muslim to her at all. She was the one who started screaming discrimination when she did not get what she wanted. The FA asked her numerous times if she would like anything else when the lady just basically pushed her away with a hand in her face. The lady then got onto her phone with her credit card and paid for the internet so she could start spinning this story on social media and she was never in tears. This person is a liar plain and simple and is just pulling the discrimination card.

  1. Not that I doubt this version of events (it seems much more probable than that of the hijabi), but why has the guy posting this not contacted the media? Presumably he would still have the booking confirmation email to prove he was on the flight, along with possibly the seat number.

    By going public in the media, not only would he discredit the Guardian and their ilk – but he could possibly have also helped a flight attendant to keep her job.

  2. Well clearly this statement has been written by an islamophobe….

    There can be no other permitted reason….

    None at all….


  3. This is wholly unsurprising. What is truly disappointing is that the MSM has flatly refused to present other perspectives on this incident or print corrected versions of the original story. I suppose that is an indication exactly how deep the cultural Marxism runs in that crowd.

    I’m also not surprised about the freak out over Diet/Light Coke (silver cans) versus Coke Zero (black cans). That seems to be a big distinction here in Algiers as well.

    Funnily enough if one actually bothers to READ the ingredient list on both cans it is simple to realize that can color is the only significant difference between them.

    Those are some of the dhimmi, cowardly, abject western newspaper headlines. The worst media in the whole world, even worse than any so-called dictator.

    From the very beginning when I read this creature’s story I did not believe it, I did not WANT to believe it. Why? Because it reminded me of hundreds of similar “incidents” by imams, muslims, clergy, muslimas, hijabed or otherwise that have acted out and the dirty western media jump and embrace every word that proceeds from the muslim odorous mouth is pure truth.

    Of course what she sees, and how royally she is treated, and will be compensated, and she remembers incidents like these, and how muslims are glorified, she expected to be exalted, idolized, revered, worshipped, just because she is a muslim. Not even a king’s pet pig has such privileges as muslims have in the west. And why not?

    It is amazing how after murdering 3000 innocent people in the Twin Towers the west started to 1. import millions of muslims, 2. the blood of those innocents triggered in the heart of westerners a romantic, strange, loved unparalleled in history. 3. starting the process of islamizing the west. 4. Empowering muslims to take over the western countries. 5. surrendering high offices, the WH, universities, curricula to islam and we obey what we are dictated to by muslim masters. 6. increase hostility to Christianity to satisfy muslim goals.

    • “It is amazing how after murdering 3000 innocent people in the Twin Towers the west started to 1. import millions of muslims”

      Not so amazing. The United States is now under a systematic attack both from without (the OIC and the UN) and inside (Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the US government and the political parties).

      The really scary thing is that there is virtually no pushback by any US institution. The White House uses its executive power to suppress any discussion of Islam-based subversion. Even worse, the US Congress, which is supposed to be an independent body, also systematically suppresses any investigation into the dangers of Islam and Muslims.

      I don’t have any doubt there is a great deal of foreign money coming into US political, educational, and media institutions. The problem is, it’s not just competing interests that are providing the funding, but a very focused subversive movement. And yes, Diana West made the very strong analogy with the Communist penetration of the US government in the 30’s and 40’s.

      To my mind, any foreign funding of US political processes at all, direct or indirect, ought to be a felony for the funder and any politician accepting the funding. I realize there are border cases like George Soros, nominally a US citizen, with multiple billions to influence the US political process. But, I think if we keep out the Muslim oil money, even Soros will not be fatal to the system.

  5. Isn’t using the term “lady” for this Muslima wretch, quite a stretch?

  6. The real victim (employee) needs to sue for libel. Seems that there is a case here with a significant number of witnesses.
