The comments on that post have since been disabled. Himer was reportedly exposed by a fellow passenger, who claimed that the influencer retreated to economy class after taking the photo, according to the Mirror

The passenger reportedly posted a photo to Twitter of Himer sitting in economy class. The Daily Dot could not find the tweet in question, however.

Himer hilariously responded to the controversy on Thursday.

Himer posted another photo of herself on a plane. This time she’s with a friend, and they’re seating in business class, posing with their middle fingers up. She also had a message for her followers: “Cette fois ci promis j’ai payé,” she wrote with a wink emoji. The message translates to “This time I promise I paid.”
