Things are get tense out there, folks it’s almost like there’s a 35 -story gorilla in the room no matter where you go. And as we’ve learned, giant gorilla and airliners don’t mix.

Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts was on a flight Sunday night when he tweeted that he noticed his seat-mate was scrolling through his “heavily alt-right dominated Facebook feed.”

And then it got ugly.

What started out as the unabashedly liberal filmmaker’s commentary on the “self-made echo chamber” of fake Facebook news very quickly spiraled into a showdown over a spilled beverage, a broken phone charger and a bad lawsuit of post-election bad manners.

The guy with whom Vogt-Roberts tangled was not identified, but eventually captured on video 😛 TAGEND

Here, told in 74 tweets, is a narrative of two weary travelers whose seat assignments brought them together, but whose politics and so very much more drove them apart in what the director called “a metaphor for Trump’s America.”
