Online backlash has been directed at a couple of parents who allowed their toddler to behave uncontrollably during an eight-hour flight.
The incident gained attention after a video of the child’s disruptive behavior was shared on the Reddit forum ‘Public Freakout’.
In the nine-second clip, the child can be seen standing on the table connected to the seat in front of them.
Amidst shouting at her parents, the toddler further escalates the situation by jumping up and down on the tray.
Consequently, the seat of the person in front of the toddler begins to shake, and there are concerns that the table might not withstand her weight.
Despite the man’s efforts to ignore her, the child persists in causing further disruption by placing both hands on his headrest. The video concludes with the little girl turning towards a woman who appears to be her mother.
The person who recorded the incident stated that the child had been well-behaved throughout the long-haul flight, prompting them to capture this particular moment. Sharing the clip on the forum, they invited other members to provide their thoughts on the incident, captioning it as “Letting children run wild during an eight-hour flight.”
The post has garnered over 2,000 comments of outrage on the forum, with people expressing astonishment that the child’s parents allowed her to behave in such a manner.
One replied: ‘I would feel like a failed parent if my kids were doing this and I was just straight up allowing it.’
