The Chicago P.D. actress even offered her harasser some tips for the next time he finds himself in a similar situation.
Unsurprisingly, the note was incredibly relatable for any woman who has ever found herself being harassed by a man despite asking him to leave her alone, and it was quick to go viral.

“When you make a woman so visibly uncomfortable, that after you’ve ignored all visual cues to please leave her alone (one word answers, she pulls out a book, puts on a hat, she actually asks you to not speak to her with the tone and words you’re choosing to use) that she finally GETS UP and MOVES SEATS, leave her alone,” she wrote.
“Do not continue trying to make conversation,” she continued. “Stop turning around and looking at her. Stop leaning out of your seat and towards her body when she has to grab something out of the overhead bin above her original seat, and sadly also above you, mid-flight.”
Sophia went on to say that the man had taken things one step further by implying that she owed him her attention because he watched her television show. Of course, she quickly shut that shit down.
“And in my case, stop believing that you are entitled to make me uncomfortable because you ‘watch my TV show’ so I owe you some magical debt,” she said. “I make it, you watch it. After that, the ‘exchange’ is done. You do not get to harass me, or any woman, because you think you pay our bills. You don’t bro, I DO.”
