Who is Ann Coulter? What happened to her on a Delta flight to spark Twitter row?
Coulter, 55, began tweeting on Saturday, when she claimed that the airline had given away her extra room seat to another passenger without any explanation, compensation or apology .
The political commentator said that she had booked an aisle seat, but was moved to a window seat.
In a prolonged series of tweets, Coulter mocked the airline, its staff and the passenger she said took her seat.

On Sunday evening, Delta replied to Coulter on Twitter.
We’re sorry you did not receive the preferred seat you paid for and will refund your $30, the airline wrote.
Additionally, your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.
Despite the response, Coulter continued to berate the airline.
$30! It cost me $10,000 of my time to pre-select the seat I wanted, investigate type of plane go back periodically to review seat options, Coulter wrote.
Who is Ann Coulter?
Coulter has been dubbed the Katie Hopkins of America .
The right-wing, Trump-supporting commentator has gained a reputation for offending countless minority groups with her outspoken views.
Last year, Coulter was attacked after calling the father of slain soldier Humayun Khan a snarling Muslim after he criticised Donald Trump at a Democratic National Convention Speech.
Mr Trump had already caused a furore by suggesting that Khizr Khan had spoken out against him alone because his wife was not allowed to speak.
Coulter supported the then-Presidential hopeful, saying: I don t know America very well if they want to listen to a snarling Muslim lecture them and tell us we re not allowed to have opinions on important public policy issues unless we had a son die in Iraq.”
Coulter has written 12 books
The former lawyer has a long history of making Islamophobic comments.
After the 9/11 attacks, she famously wrote: We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.
Five years later she suggested that Islam is a car-burning cult with a predilection for violence.
Coulter has also offended the Jewish community, and in 2015 tweeted how many f***ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States? during a rant about Republican candidates expressing solidarity with Israel.
The post sparked the hashtag #IStandWithAnn, which was used in many anti-semitic tweets.
Coulter later defended her words, saying: My point was this whole culture of virtue-signalling where debates are about nothing.
Look, Republicans all agree 100 percent that we are pro-Israel, pro-Life, pro-gun. So why do we spend so much time on these issues? It s just pandering, so who are they pandering to?

In the same year, Coulter said on Fusion TV: If you don t want to be killed by Isis, don t go to Syria. If you don t want to be killed by a Mexican, there s nothing I can tell you.
She then refused to hug a woman who said she was an undocumented immigrant.
In 2016, ahead of the presidential election, Coulter claimed that a Hillary Clinton victory would be the end of America .
The country will be overwhelmed, more than it already is, with the third world, she said.
At around the same time, Coulter appeared on Comedy Central s Roast of Rob Lowe.
She became the butt of so many vicious jokes that she herself dubbed the programme the Ann Coulter roast with Rob Lowe .
Coulter trained and worked as a lawyer, and made her first national television appearance in 1996 as a legal correspondent on MSNBC. She has since appeared on broadcasters such as CNN and Fox News and has published 12 books, earning her a fortune estimated at 6.5 million ($8.5 million), according to celebritynetworth.com
She has reportedly been engaged several times, but has never married and has no children.
