Shame on the plane! Photos of passengers behaving badly have gone viral.

Passengers, prepare for shaming. Especially if you’re not in the upright position and your feet are on your tray table.

Former flight attendant Shawn Kathleen created the Facebook page “Passenger Shaming” showcasing photos of passengers behaving badly — leaving dirty diapers in seat pockets and going shirtless.

How gross is it to see a guy sleeping with his hand shoved down his pants? But Shawn Kathleen has seen passengers do worse.

“He caught his hair on fire in lavatory while smoking crack,” says Kathleen.

It sort of makes chewed gum left in the safety card seem quaint.

Kathleen quit her flight attendant job a year ago to become a nurse practitioner. She’ll see plenty of naked men in nursing but somehow looking at this – a passenger using a pillowcase to cover his eyes while he leaves everything else uncovered – seems worse.
