Man praised for stepping in to help body-shamed woman on flight

Phillips said she usually likes to sit on her own on planes as her

"Share this post, look him up- whatever- he did prove to me today that (1) not only does God see me, but (2) there are more good people in the world than bad".

'You're attractive. Don't let broke drag you down with their own insecurities!,' writes one person. I always try to sit in a row where I don't have to sit next to anyone.

"My worst nightmare is someone being uncomfortable because they have to sit next to me", she wrote.

Phillips said Irwin was her "hero" and what he did "meant the world" to her. "I'm sitting next to a smelly fatty".

Savannah stated: "I used to be shocked and it was like affirmation of the unfavorable issues I take into consideration myself each day".

Before I knew it, I could feel hot, salty tears coming down my face.

That's when Irwin (seen above) 'tapped him on the shoulder and said, "I need to talk to you",' she recalled. I know that was hurtful to you and for that, I'm also sorry.

"The pilot came overhead and said there would be a 30 minute delay before he could take off- great".

She scrunched her body up against the wall.

Phillips says that simply making conversation, about their kids, partners and lives back home was a welcome relief, and she referred to the Nashville bar manager as her "hero". I'm going to vomit.

Savannah Phillips was flying from Oklahoma to IL on Tuesday when she endured a disgusting encounter with a person sitting subsequent to her.

'I don't even know what the rest of his text said.

Phillips said the passenger told the comedian he would not tolerate the text messages he was sending.

"We are switching seats. I told him that he was a blessing sent to me and how thankful I was that he was there".

Irwin told the man he was "heartless".

'He asked if I saw the texts and I nodded yes.

The two men did swap seats and Phillips said that when her new seat mate, who introduced himself as Chase from Nashville, saw she was crying, he encouraged her not to let they guy get to her and told her everything would be fine.

An Oklahoma woman claims she was fat-shamed on a plane and credits another passenger for standing up for her. "I actually got really sick to my stomach".

It turns out that Phillips wasn't the only one to spot the nasty text messages.

Phillips shared her experience on social media in hopes he would be recognized, and within half an hour, he acknowledged reading the post. She wrote that a woman sitting next to her on a plane texted someone that she was sitting "next to a 'fat b@tch.' I told my seat mate that they should be thankful I'm not a insane fat b@tch or she'd have been in a world of hurt". "It has warmed the heart of our entire team".

United Airlines had kind words for Irwin, too.

United Airlines spokesman Kimberly Gibbs told Newsweek on Thursday: "We appreciate the efforts of the customer and would like to hear from Ms Phillips to understand what occurred".

Irwin and Phillips talked about their families and eventually went their separate ways after the flight.

But he wasn't her hero, Phillips wrote, "he was mine".
