He Watched an R-Rated Movie on a Plane. Is He a Jerk?
by Matthew Gilligan
Keep an eye on your kids, folks!
Because, as of right now, there are no rules about watching R-rated movies on your own personal device when you are in public or on a plane.
But does that mean it’s a good idea?
Take a look at what this guy had to say and see what you think.
AITA for watching an R-rated movie on a flight?
“I, 19m, was on a flight to visit my parents.
I had a few movies downloaded on my phone, including the second Deadpool. I was watching it on my phone with headphones in, when the part where Deadpool gets ripped in half happens, and I can hear a (muffled) scream behind me. I take out my headphones and there’s a little kid behind me, crying.
He had positioned himself in a way that he could watch my screen and had watched him get torn. His mom got mad at me and yelled that I shouldn’t be watching that kind of thing, especially in front of children.
But I wasn’t aware anyone was watching me, and that kid would have had to force himself into that weird position to see my phone screen. So, am I an a**hole?”
Take a look at how Reddit users reacted.
This reader said he’s NTA and that this woman should have been watching her own kid.
Another individual said the mom knew this was happening but didn’t object because it was keeping her kid quiet.
And another Reddit user said this mom was not living up to her responsibility.
