TKC MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY ENTERTAINER SUSANNA LEE DELIVERS EPIC #METOO SMACK DOWN AGAINST ALLEGED AIRPLANE CREEPER!!!
She's got an upcoming gig at The Comedy Club of Kansas City and this brief bio offers just a bit of insight into one of our favorite local denizens in order to provide some context for her recent exploit . . .
"Susanna Lee is a standup comic, storyteller, and patron saint to provocateurs everywhere. Susanna gave her first TED talk at TEDxKU, on the University of Kansas campus, where she’s also guest lectured on the artistry of standup comedy. In addition to being a professional comedian, she’s lived a life filled with brilliantly odd adventures, including time spent performing with a circus sideshow, teaching yoga, and navigating the sex industry, all of which have contributed to the highly engaging and truly unique voice and presence for which she’s known and loved."
Accordingly . . .
IN HER LATEST ADVENTURE, SUSANNA LEE SHARED A VIRAL SOCIAL MEDIA SMACK DOWN OF A CREEPY FELLOW TRAVELER SENDING NASTY OVERTURES HER WAY AS SHE RETURNED TO KANSAS CITY!!!
Here's the story:
"HEY DUDES YOU NEVER FUCKING STOP DO YOU? This pile of fuck. I’m boarding my final flight, ask for the middle seat, he sits there, I ask if he’s gonna get up to let me in, he says “I wanna see your climbing skills”, I say “no, and don’t say that shit”. He says something else gross about my climbing skills, I say “that’s gross, and unless you want this to be a really uncomfortable flight, you need to apologize”, he says “I won’t”, I turn to the guy behind me in line and say “would you like this seat next to this misogynistic piece of shit, it’s got some good legroom “ and turn to exit the row. Of course, now he’s not getting up and letting me out now, so, as trapped as one can be on a boarding plane, I say “unless you want my knee in your balls, you need to get up and let me the fuck out”, and press the call button to get some sort of backup since bystanders do nothing. He gets up, I exit and find another seat. PRETTY FUCKING UPSET RT NOW. And it’s not like it’s @southwestair’s fault, I mean, sure, no flight attendant came to tell the dude not to be a fucking shitbag, but it happened fast. Cabin door’s closed now, gotta silently rage all the way from Denver to KansasCity now."
And here's where things get even more real, she's putting the dude's picture on blast across all of her social media accounts in a post that's going crazy on Facebook.
Even more real, the latest on the sitch:
"UPDATE: In KC airport, waiting for FBI agent, already talked to cops, who were waiting at the plane door. Thank you to my friends who are helpful and strong and supportive and really really amazing."
And so . . .
CALL IT #METOO OR A JUSTIFIED DEMAND FOR COMMON COURTESY: WE SHARE THIS STORY OF CONFLICT TO DEMONSTRATE REAL CHANGE IN PUBLIC BEHAVIOR STANDARDS IN THE SKIES ABOVE KCMO!!!
