Randi Zuckerberg has some strong words for Alaska Airlines

Alaska Airlines says it's investigating a claim that flight attendants allowed a passenger to sexually harass a former Facebook executive on a flight.

In the letter, she said that a while on a flight from Los Angeles to Mazatlan, Mexico, she was sexually harassed by a man siting next to her.

The email Zuckerberg sent outlined sexual remarks allegedly made by the man who had been seated in first class next to her.

She continued: "When I brought it to the flight attendants" attention, their response was that this guy was a frequent Alaska Airlines traveler on this exact route, and they have had to talk to him about his behavior in the past, but oh well, don't take it personally, this guy just doesn't have a filter.

Paul Hudson, president of the airline passenger advocacy group FlyersRights.org, said the government and should do more to track sexual assault on planes and issue guidelines for responding to them.

She added that when the attendants came by, they asked the man "Are you behaving today?"

According to CNN, Zuckerberg was offered another seat at the back of the plane but didn't take it because she didn't think she should have to give up her seat because the man was harassing her.

He also mocked "Millennial women" when talking about recent sexual harassment news reports.

Zuckerberg wrote a lengthy email to the airline's leadership after leaving a flight feeling "disgusted" and "degraded." .

The airline said what Zuckerberg shared had been disturbing and wished to discuss the situation further with her and requested a way they could connect with her Wednesday night.
