A plane passenger has left netizens disgusted after a video of him scrolling through the in-flight entertainment system with his bare feet went viral on the internet. The clip was shared by American novelist Alafair Burke who wrote alongside, ‘’My friend who doesn’t have twitter sent this from her flight. It belongs on Twitter.’’
The clip has been viewed over nine million times and has triggered several reactions on social media. While some have expressed their disgust over man’s action, some have argued that that the passenger could be differently-abled.

Burke, however, ruled out the possibility, saying he carried his own bag. ''The photographer confirms that she saw him walk on and off the plane, carrying his own bag. He just likes to watch TV with his bare feet,'' Burke tweeted.

Well, ok. Bleh. On the other hand: it’s a foot. Most people use their hands. Most people also don’t wash their hands after using the loo. https://t.co/5PspI7hBcN— Muriel Reyserhove (@mreyserhove) July 17, 2019
