People Believe Matt Rife and a Flight Attendant Were Flirting on a Twitter Post!
Before learning what really happened between Matt Rife (@mattrife) and the flight attendant on a Twitter post, let’s first know how everything started. He made a joke in a tweet in February 2023 about how people see survival in airplane crashes, hinting that if someone died because the backpack under his legs prevented an exit during an emergency landing, they were not “fit for this world.”
Following the tweet, a lot of people got offended. People started criticizing him for making fun of the victims of airplane crashes. Meanwhile, a flight attendant replied to his tweet writing,
I’m a flight attendant and I would personally put your backpack in our forward closet or hold it on my lap before I would ever ask you to check it
Happy with her gesture, Matt replied,
Because you’re an angel
Similarly, the flight attendant again wrote,
Also idk how often you fly out of AUS or which airline but that’s my second home so if you’re ever on my flights I gotchu 🤠 (If you wanna get on my benefits just say the word i would highly consider it simply bc you make me laugh)
Many people found Matt Rife and the flight attendant’s interaction “flirting.” A couple of months later, Matt also asked on Twitter if he should roast flight attendants.
