For Feet's Sake! Passenger's Disgusting Act On Plane Causes Outrage

An unidentified and unnamed man was spotted using his bare feet to scroll through movie options while in the air.

The passenger was seated in the exit row, meaning their TV screen was attached to the wall in front of them, not the back of a seat.

Despite the short distance between his chair and the wall, it appears the passenger didn't think it was worth moving from his seated position to select a film -- so he used his bare toes to swipe across the touch screen instead.

The video was posted to Twitter by user Alafair Burke along with the hilarious caption: "My friend who doesn’t have twitter sent this from her flight. It belongs on Twitter."

After 5,100 comments and over 27,000 retweets that appeared to be true -- with many people in disbelief after watching the video.

"People leave the house and lose their damn minds," one user commented.

"People in first-class look at me crazy for wiping down everything. This is exactly why. Yuck," another wrote.

One person reminded people that airports and airplanes are among some of the most germ-infested places.

"You fools, you nincompoops, for believing their fingers are any more sanitary than their feet. This human being was just in an Airport, nothing about them is clean," the Twitter user said.

It's unclear where the man was flying, or which airline he was travelling on, however, the person who originally shot the video said the man was otherwise behaving like a regular passenger.

"The photographer confirms that she saw him walk on and off the plane, carrying his own bag. He just likes to watch TV with his bare feet," Alafair Burke tweeted.
