Actress Olivia Wilde expressed what every exasperated pregnant person on a crowded subway bumping her belly into the face of some 25-year-old guy going to happy hour has wanted to shout from the rooftops.
NBD, able-bodied 🚇 riders who won’t give your seat to a GIANT preggo. I’ll just stand riiiiight next to your head and pray I go into labor.

The etiquette that you should give your seat to the pregnant, elderly and disabled is pretty common knowledge. In fact, it’s written all over basically every public transportation system, just in case you forget.
Most of her followers were praising her call-out.
However, in a now-deleted tweet, one guy came up with the ol’ “well you’re the one who got pregnant, deal with it” excuse. According to E! Online, he wrote “1. I didn’t tell u to get pregnant 2. Get an Uber (you can afford it) 3. I paid the same amt as you for the subway ride.” To which Wilde had another incredibly appropriate response.
Besides, Uber can’t be trusted when you’re pregnant.
