Randi Zuckerberg, sister of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, says Alaska Airlines employees refused to intervene as a drunken passenger harassed her during a three-hour flight from Los Angeles to Mexico. 

The 35-year-old wrote to executives of the airline Wednesday and tweeted that she was “feeling disgusted and degraded” after the experience, in which the passenger allegedly talked about touching himself and rated women’s looks as they boarded, among other harassing comments. 

Zuckerberg said the flight attendants told her the man was a frequent flier and kept giving him drinks without addressing the inappropriate behavior. 

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.

She said flight attendants made excuses for his behavior, saying “this guy just doesn’t have a filter” and she shouldn’t take it personally.

Alaska Airlines responded that they are investigating the incident and have revoked the man’s travel privileges.

In response, Zuckerberg thanked the airline for taking the situation seriously. 

Alaska Airlines spokeswoman Bobbie Egan said the airline has “zero tolerance for any type of sexual misconduct that creates an unsafe environment for our guests and crew members, CNN reported. 

Zuckerberg is a Silicon Valley executive who worked at Facebook until 2011 and now runs Zuckerberg Media, a marketing and production company. She is credited with creating Facebook Live.
