Think of the most unusual (or disgusting) scene you've ever seen on a plane flight. Now imagine sharing that with more than 745,000 followers on Instagram? This is how "Passenger Shaming" works, an Instagram account dedicated to spreading the most bizarre moments and bad manners seen on flights - and recorded by passengers or commissioners.

The public shaming site was started by Shawn Kathleen — a mom, former police officer and paramedic who worked as a flight attendant for seven years. She came up with the original concept and started the brand on her own approximately five years ago. It has since been featured in most media outlets across the globe and was named one of the “Best 100 Instagram accounts" by Rolling Stone Magazine.

Scroll down and see just how rude people can get while on a plane for yourself!

the biggest issue here is not that her feet needs to be cleaned with bleach... the problem is that she has the balls to put that shit up on someone's seat instead of keeping it to herself. total lack of consideration to others.

I start to smell a “sweaty feet” and I saw the guy behind me without shoes ( but with socks) then I told him to put the f..g shoes on because his feet were smelly. Just after I shouted at him my husband told me that the “smelly feet” scent was coming from his vinegar and onion Pringle’s box 🤣🤦🏼‍♀️
