The hosts of “The View” slammed Ann Coulter on Monday over her recent Twitter tirade directed at Delta airlines when she experienced the inconvenience of having her seat moved.

Coulter on Sunday heavily criticized the airline after being booted from her seat.

Calling Delta “the worst airline in America,” she wrote, “Does your union hate you, @Delta? Not really worth spending all that money on planes when @Delta gate staff give your seat away.”

She continued, “Why are you taking me out of the extra room seat I specifically booked, @Delta?’ Flight attendant: “I don’t know.”

“But at least @Delta was nice @ it,” she later added, “summarily snatching my ticket from my hand & ordering me to move w/o explanation, compensation or apology

Delta on Monday responded to Coulter’s rant and said, “We’re sorry you did not receive the preferred seat you paid for and will refund your $30. Additionally, your insults about our other customers and employees are unacceptable and unnecessary.”

Coulter faced her own criticism after sharing the update, as well as photos of Delta staff and fellow passengers on her Twitter page — which boasts over a million followers — and the women of “The View” gave it to Coulter during the Monday airing of the ABC daytime show.

Co-host Whoopi Goldberg kicked off the segment empathizing with Coulter’s irritation with the airline, but refused to agree with the way that the conservative firebrand handled the situation.

Of sharing a photo of Coulter’s fellow passengers, Goldberg said, “I was right with her until I saw that.”

Co-host Joy Behar, however, poked fun at Coulter for obsessing over the flight map.

“She spent weeks and weeks planning on this seat. What is it, a cemetery plot?” Behar asked.

Co-host Jedediah Bila couldn’t rationalize why Coulter spent such time obsessing over the airline snafu. Bila said, “I get that she’s mad … but it was like hours of this … it went on for hours.”

Co-host Sunny Hostin seemed to note that Coulter’s rant was hypocritical, considering the conservative’s own propensity toward bashing those who are overly sensitive.

“Doesn’t Ann Coulter call people snowflakes a lot, say people are very sensitive?” Hostin asked.
