When the crew asked him to stop yelling, he said, “I’m not screaming. Do you want me to scream? I’ll f–king scream; we are in a f–king tin can with a baby in a goddamn echo chamber, and you wanna talk to me about being f–king, OK?”

People on social media were divided regarding who was at fault, some sympathizing with the man and others mocking him for his tantrum.

He Should Be Embarrassed

A Twitter user said, “If you can’t handle the sound of a crying baby or toddler, maybe air travel or being in public isn’t for you. Personally, I’d be embarrassed by my inability to cope with something so basic that happens all the time. But I just believe that’s part of being a functioning adult.”

The Man Should Stay Out Of Public Places

Another user said, “How do you manage a baby that has pain because of air compression or decompression? If you are so fragile by a baby crying instead of having sympathy for the parents and baby, stay out of public places maybe.”

Nerve-grating Noise

But the third user sympathizes with the guy by saying, "Why should the rest of us have to be subjected to the crappy behavior of other people's kids? Honestly, if a kid can't behave on a flight, it doesn't belong on it. Travel is stressful enough without having to endure that kind of nerve-grating noise..."

The Airplane Apologized To Other Passengers
