A female Taiwanese flight attendant has been traumatized by an overweight caucasian passenger who disrespected and humiliated her to a point where she broke down crying.
The unnamed passenger was wheeled on board an Eva Airline airplane that was heading out of Los Angeles towards Taiwan. As soon as he was on board, he began his long list of demands.
He first demanded that he be put in an empty 3-seat row because his body can’t fit comfortably in just one seat. The passenger was reported to weigh about 440 lbs, and he had purchased an economy ticket. As the airplane was quite empty, the passenger was moved to an empty row.
Soon after, the passenger requested that the flight attendants help him to the bathroom. The flight attendants obliged and helped the man walk towards one of the economy stalls. The passenger angrily demanded that they take him to the bathroom in business class since he “can’t fit” in the economy stalls. Once again, the flight attendants accepted his request.
Within seconds of entering the bathroom, he once again called for the flight attendants’ help. He claimed to have recently undergone surgery on his right hand, so he wanted them to help get his pants down.
One of the flight attendants, named Emily Kuo, explained that she couldn’t help him and that there were no male flight attendants to help either. Eva Airline is known for only hiring female flight attendants. At her refusal, the man began growing angry as he reasserted, “I need help getting my underwear off.” When she denied his request, the man threatened to relieve himself on the floor.
The flight attendants reluctantly agreed to help him. One of them brought in a blanket to cover up his genitals that he had open and exposed, but he angrily slapped the blanket away and kept his penis exposed to the women, saying “I don’t need this, just come here and take off my pants.”
After the man was situated, he told the flight attendants to leave the door open while he did his business. The attendants firmly rejected his request and closed the door.
“I told him we couldn’t help him, but he started yelling. He told me to go in there immediately and threatened to relieve himself on the floor.
As the passenger’s genitals were now exposed, one of my colleagues brought a blanket, which I used to cover his modesty. But he very angrily slapped my hand away, saying he didn’t want it and only wanted me to remove his underwear so he could use the toilet.”

However, the worst was yet to come. After completing his business, the man called on the flight attendants again, but this time, to wipe his backside after defecating.
The flight attendants were revolted by his demands and immediately refused. The man raged with anger, claiming that the flight attendant had promised she would help him. Emily Kuo asserted that she never made such a promise.
The man was insistent and started causing a scene. The flight attendants decided to help him since they couldn’t leave him in the bathroom for the remainder of the flight.
But as soon as the women began wiping his backside, the man started moaning, “Oh, mmm, deeper, deeper.” Emily Kuo said she was never more humiliated in her life.
When they were done, he made them wipe him again, claiming that they didn’t wipe him properly.
“He said: ‘Oh, mmm, deeper, deeper,’ and then accused my chief attendant of not properly cleaning his backside, requesting that she do it again.”

After helping him back to his seat, Emily Kuo remembers collapsing as she sobbed uncontrollably from the trauma that she had just faced.
She recently held a press conference where she shed tears while recalling all of the events that happened aboard the flight. She demanded that EVA Airlines take action and start hiring male attendants or ban similar passengers.
EVA Airlines responded that they are currently investigating the occurrences and emphasized that they deeply care for the safety of their employees.
