Police remove woman who ordered fellow passenger in airport line to ‘sit down’
On Oct. 13, at St. Louis Lambert International Airport, Na’Kesha Danyel Smith, a YouTube vlogger and a doula, was waiting to board a Southwest Airlines flight to New Jersey to help deliver her best friend’s baby.
A professional doula was tormented for 30 minutes by a fellow airline passenger who commanded that she “sit down” before policeescorted the harasser away.
She was chatting with a male traveler about the military, a field her now-17-year-old daughter was interested in entering. “This woman just walked up to us and said, ‘Sit down,'” Danyel Smith tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “I was like, ‘Who is she talking to? I am 45 years old. No one has told me to sit down in decades.'”
