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!

Maybe she is a subject of random selection and they messed up her bag and she has to repack. Is it a nuisance? Yeah, but so is random selection sometimes.

I guess the parents might have been asleep. Could have been a 12 hour flight and the kid was trying to keep themselves busy and not wake mum or dad.

Out of the million things you can do on a plane - watching a movie, listening to music, talking to the person next to you, socializing, being a good fellow passenger - you watch porn... Whoa!

At least they had the decency to use a bottle and not the next person's seat (and belongings).

Can we ban these people from flights please? Or at least make them clean up after themselves?

Start jamming food in there. A dab of butter. Some bread. A few potato chips. Some cheesecake. Whatever you've got. Could be interesting.

If he was good at it and played it well, it must've been a best case scenario. But if he was practising.... God save them

I don' t see anything bad about it. It's not like he's bothering someone. And he may be a pyrotechnic. So what?
