A mother flying from Houston to Vancouver has claimed that a flight attendant harassed her on United Airlines flight.

Kristen Hilderman, a Canadian mom to a 5-month-old son, was so outraged after her exchange with a flight attendant that she posted about the experience on Twitter.

Hilderman typed out a recollection of the incident, and posted a photo of her typed complaint.It all started when Hilderman, wearing a breastfeeding tank top, decided to feed her son without a cover, she says. “A male flight attendant named Keith walked up to our row and said to my husband (loudly, so that everyone around could hear), ‘are you two together?’ My husband replied “Yes…” And then the flight attendant tossed a blanket at him  (didn’t even hand it TO him, but tossed it AT him) and said tersely, ‘Then HERE, help her out,’” Hilderman wrote. “I had a blanket under my baby and a blanket draped across my knees and the plane was hot and stuffy… he wanted me to cover myself.”
