Plus-size model slams Delta Air Lines for having short seatbelts [Video]




  • After being unable to tighten her seatbelt on a flight, a plus-size model has spoken out against Delta Air Lines.
  • She is urging the airline to make their seatbelts more inclusive.
  • According to a travel review website, Delta Airlines have shorter seatbelts than American Airlines and JetBlue aircraft.

After being unable to buckle her seatbelt during a recent flight, a plus-sized model has accused Delta Air Lines of having inappropriate seatbelts.


And no I shouldn’t need to ask for an extender. It should just be easy! @delta ♬ Spaz – Mr. 2-17 & DRIPPY PRODUCTIONS

Model Remi Bader is seen fumbling to secure her seatbelt during take-off on a Delta, an American airline flight, in footage uploaded to TikTok.

Remi posted a viral video of herself in her airline seat, allegedly unable to buckle her seatbelt. 

Remi spoke directly to the airline, urging them to “figure it out,” claiming that she “shouldn’t need to ask for an extender. It should just be easy!”

A number of Remi’s fans expressed sympathy with her issue, recalling similar terrible air travel experiences and adding that all passengers, regardless of size, should be able to fly safely.

According to one follower: “I was too embarrassed to ask last time so I pretended to be buckled and just decided if we hit turbulence so be it”.

“This is exactly why I have a fear of flying. In 2016, the belt just closed. I have no hope now and refuse to be belittled by the crew,” said another.

One commenter also wrote: “I was asked to move from the exit row once because I needed an extender. Apparently, an extender means you’re unable to open the exit door”.

Remi has previously spoken out about her difficulties with seatbelts while flying. She revealed in a different TikTok video shared in October that she was left “freaking out” after being unable to secure her seatbelt onboard a Delta trip.


Remi, who claims to have “always loved Delta,” said the airline’s new planes have shorter seatbelts than they used to, adding that the belt wouldn’t go around her body.

She said that was the first time in her life that she took off with the seatbelt unfastened.

The Delta Air Lines website states that a passenger who requires a seatbelt extender or is unable to lower the armrest is not required to purchase an additional seat. However, they may be asked to shift to a different place that provides more space, or, if the aircraft is full, they may be asked to board a later flight with open seats, if the person obstructs another passenger. 

Delta advises guests to purchase an additional seat when needed to avoid this circumstance and to ensure the passenger’s comfort. 

According to the travel review website The Points Guy, Delta’s seatbelts range in length from 40 to 45 inches, making them shorter than the belts used on American Airlines and JetBlue aircraft, which are 45 to 47 inches and 45 inches, respectively.

    “Shouldn’t have to ask for an extender?” Well, nobody should have to ask for a stick to roll up yards of the belting that I want. Man-up, I didn’t ask “Gee, why am I plus-sized?” I said “I’ll eat ’til I’m FAT.”

      I agree with most of the comments … AND I am also ‘FAT’ (plus size)

      The difference is I do not INTENTIONALLY try to sit in a small seat. STOP being so cheap buy a Business class seat. 1) It is MUCH more comfortable, 2) My 59 inch /150 cm hips have NO problem.
      THINK in Advance or diet.

    I wouldn’t want to sit next to her. There’s barely enough room on planes for regular sized people, let alone obese. Can yiu imagine trying to get past her in the row to use the lavatory? No way, let alone sitting next to an overflowing individual.

      I agree as these obese flyers do indeed use your space that you paid for! Their buttocks/bellies/arms etc spread into your seat space.

    So l guess a woman who’s four or five month pregnant can’t fly either. I just came off a Delta flight l agree the seat belts are short. Fat shaming doesn’t solve the problem.

      Fat shaming brings that unhealthy lifestyle of gluttony to the forefront. So yes Indeed it is a good thing!

      That depends. Most pregnant women may have a large abdomen but their hip area is not excessively huge and will fit a seat belt. Sure there are exceptions, and nowadays there are a lot of women who let themselves go when they get pregnant, so THEY should be treated like fat people! Just because you have a special problem doesn’t mean an airline or taxi or other business needs to make provisions for you.

      There’s no shame in asking for a seat-belt extender because one is overweight or pregnant. Never once have I been ridiculed, denied, or otherwise inconvenienced by Delta when asking for one.

    While many folks find obesity offensive, that’s just rude. Many people have much more serious conditions which are not obvious. Is obesity contagious? Is blindness, hearing impared, amputees, burn victims, blind, overly hairy, bald? Think about the annoyances you are aware of within yourself before castigating another.

      God Bless you for your value system, in that very Golden Rule we learned as children. Some people are less fortunate than others and suffer from thyroid conditions which DO cause traumatic weight gains and others enjoy food to the point of over indulgence. It is not our place to decide their life holds less value if we don’t like what we see. We can choose to be a magnanimous person and be polite and respectful with all those we meet, thereby guaranteeing our immediate surroundings will be pleasant or we can be vulgar and offensive with those whom we find offensive to us. However, then it is we who are diminished. My Grandmother told me when I was very young “Be the hand raised out to lift up others, for that’s when you are the strongest”. Kindness and empathy are somethings easy to strive for. But, I guess, some people would rather ridicule others than look for the positive aspect.

        Maybe you should read your Bible and see what GOD says about gluttony! No one is justifying “hatred”, but are sick and tired of being “forced” to accept laziness, slovenliness, especially when it infringes on you! What about the “skinny/normal shaming” that fat people are doing by complaining about people who aren’t fat? By the way, thyroid conditions can be treated, but along with the treatment the person needs to accept some responsibility and follow the strict dietary guidelines. It’s simply easier to be lazy and irresponsible about your health.

      Sorry, Joe, but I am sick to death of sob sisters who refuse to make those who are causing the issue be held accountable. Our country is in total disarray because of sob sisters even allowing murderers free because they had a difficult childhood. Mommy paddled them. Baloney! Grow up. Take responsibility foir your own actions. Get the help they need.

    Grow up, deal with it, and while you’re coping, go on a diet. Don’t expect the rest of the world to change all their equipment and systems to deal with your solvable problem just because you don’t feel like asking for the extender. You have the right to be fat, but you don’t have the right to demand everyone else has to accommodate you.

    I had back surgery and the same belts on United. The short end doesn’t even clear the arm rest sometimes and I cannot twist my back to reach it. It is very uncomfortable too. I see lots of heavy people not fastening their seatbelts. Make the short one 4” longer please

      Try asking a flight attendant for help fastening your belt, that’s what they are there for – to help passengers. They can aso provide an extension if you need it!

        PRECISELY. Being fat, OK, obese, I ask for a seat-belt extender on Delta and have always been treated courteously.

Lactose Overload: Russian Cafe’s Breast Milk Latte Prank Stirred More Than Just Coffee



In a Nutshell:

  • Coffee Smile, a cafe chain in Perm, Russia, caused a stir by advertising that they would serve coffee made with human breast milk, which resulted in widespread social media attention and mixed reactions from the public.
  • Owner Maxim Kobelev clarified that it was a marketing hoax intended to promote the business after the buzz escalated, attracting national interest and prompting investigations by the local food safety authority.
  • Despite the controversy, Kobelev reported an uptick in business, with patrons curious to try the unusual beverage. He served them a blend of goat and almond milk instead, stating that it had a similar taste to breast milk.

In the world of oddities, this one might make you squirm in your seat.

A cafe in Perm, Russia, recently created a frothy buzz after suggesting they were planning to add a rather controversial ingredient to their lattes: human breast milk.

Yep, we’re not kidding.

Coffee Smile, a local cafe chain in Perm, sparked a national uproar after posters advertising the unusual new addition to their beverages started popping up around their stores.

Soon after, the chain’s owner, Maxim Kobelev, released a promotional video.

In the video, a young mother and breast milk supplier for the café says, “I recently went on maternity leave and saw that a lot of breast milk is required.”


“I have a lot of it. The child eats just a little, so I thought: why not earn extra money? I even made coffee with breast milk for my husband, he liked it.”

Talk about mixing business and motherhood!

Kobelev assured intrigued (and perhaps horrified) customers that the breast milk would be safely sourced, with all mothers tested for health assurance.

In the early stages, only about 40-45 breast milk-infused drinks were planned to be served.

However, they aimed to foam up the production to around 1,000 beverages by year’s end.

A drink would set you back 650 rubles, or about $8.

Once the video went viral, social media blew up like a well-steamed milk frother.

Many wondered if it was a hoax, or if Russia’s food safety authority, the Rospotrebnadzor, was going to get involved.


A local deputy even conducted a poll asking if people were game to try these unique coffee drinks.

The results were frothy: 46% said ‘never,’ while 23% admitted they were ready to give it a try.

Just as things were beginning to boil over, Kobelev revealed the truth behind the entire spectacle.

There would be no breast milk lattes.

It was, in fact, a gimmick; a marketing ploy whipped up when a breastfeeding mother appeared at a company meeting.

“We did not prepare or sell coffee with breast milk,” Kobelev clarified in a press release, likely easing a few jittery nerves.

He added that using breast milk for coffee production was illegal, a handy fact he probably should’ve brewed on earlier.

As it turns out, the scandal was a good brew for business.


Kobelev confessed that people started visiting his cafes asking for the unusual drink.

For those genuinely interested in the brew, Kobelev prepared a drink with a blend of goat and almond milk.

“The taste is very similar,” he stated, a knowledge he acquired as a father of two children.

While no actual laws were broken, this quirky news story has undoubtedly left a strong aftertaste in the public’s mouth.

At least for now, Coffee Smile has decided to stick with the usual milk options.

We’ll raise our plain, old lattes to that!

Woman Ditches Stressful Job to Become “Full-Time Daughter”



In a Nutshell:

  • Nianan, a 40-year-old woman in China, traded her high-stress news agency job for the role of a ‘full-time daughter,’ accepting a monthly allowance of 4,000 yuan (US$570) from her parents and sparking substantial discussion on social media.
  • Despite critics labeling the decision as ‘ken lao,’ or relying on one’s parents, Nianan enjoys a fulfilling daily routine, including dancing, cooking with her parents, handling tech issues, driving, and organizing family outings, while still feeling the pressure to earn more.
  • This unconventional career path presents an alternative to the strenuous ‘996’ work schedule prevalent in China, resonating with digitally nomadic and financially independent youth seeking to escape traditional work constraints, but also eliciting debate about familial roles and responsibilities.

The day in, day out 9-5 grind can be too much to bear.

But have you ever considered becoming a professional family member?

One woman in China did just that, and it’s ruffled some feathers.

Nianan, aged 40, chucked in her stressful job at a news agency after a reshaping of her role left her on-call 24/7.

Finding solace in her parents’ words, “Why don’t you just quit your job? We’ll take care of you financially,” she stepped into a new, unconventional career.

With a monthly allowance of 4,000 yuan (US$570) from her parents’ pension, Nianan took the plunge and became a ‘full-time daughter.’

This isn’t a euphemism for her sitting on the couch all day, munching on snacks, and binge-watching dramas, though.

Nianan has embraced a routine chock-full of familial bonding.


Mornings are spent dancing and grocery shopping with her parents, while evenings are reserved for communal cooking with her dad.

She’s the go-to tech guru in the house, the family chauffeur, and the organizer of monthly family outings.

Despite the laid-back lifestyle, the lure of financial independence is still a potent call.

Nianan acknowledges that her “biggest source of pressure is still the desire to earn more money.”

But her parents continue to offer comforting advice: find a more suitable job if you wish, or just enjoy being home with us.

Nianan’s ‘full-time daughter’ role offers a fresh twist on the pursuit of financial independence, voluntary employment, and liberation from the infamous ‘996’ grind (9am-9pm, six days a week) in China.

It’s a route that’s gaining traction with the digital nomads and the financially independent youth, in a society where the labor market is brutally competitive.

Of course, the internet’s verdict on this novel profession is a mixed bag.


Critics label it as ‘ken lao,’ a Chinese term translating to ‘eating the old’ or relying on one’s parents.

Some argue it’s a euphemism for a cushy lifestyle, with one contrarian noting, “If evaluated in the labor market, the daughter’s [salary] would be overpaid by 4000 yuan.”

Yet, there’s a cohort that applauds Nianan’s decision.

If it brings joy to both the parents and their children, why not embrace it?

“If some people consider it ken lao, then why not exchange children to take care of the elderly in each other’s families?” one supporter commented.

In this case, the ‘job’ of a daughter takes on a whole new meaning.

With love as the primary KPI, and happiness as the ultimate ROI, perhaps we should be looking at our family roles through a different lens.

Now, would anyone like to join Nianan and start a ‘full-time son’ gig?
