A recent TikTok video captured on a Spirit Airlines flight allegedly shows an older man groping a female passenger in the seat in front of him. 

The video was posted late Wednesday by @mobilesushibar, who says in the video that the man behind her kept touching her arms and breasts. 

The caption reads: “The man was like 50-60s and I was so uncomfy @spiritairlines #fyp#foryou #harassmentawareness 😐.”

At the end of the video, you can see the alleged man’s hand on her chair. She also says the airline staff and fellow passengers did nothing to help. 

“And when I confronted him and showed the video to everyone around me and the flight attendants I was told to sit down and stay quiet 😐,” the narration reads. “F you spirit airlines.”
