WATCH: 'Jet Setter's' Attempt To Shame Gate Agent Backfires

A man who identified himself as "Jet Setter" uploaded a video to YouTube in which he tried to shame and embarrass a US Airways gate agent whom he says caused him to miss a flight.

Instead, the man – who showed the gate agent’s face and name for four minutes but who blocked his own face out in his YouTube profile – had the whole thing backfire on him.

Social media users almost unanimously slammed the man, calling him entitled (and other unprintable names) for demanding recompense.

“This is where you start to throw vouchers at me, this is where you start to take responsibility,” the passenger says to gate agent Alesia Garcia in the video.

The man was traveling from Denver to San Diego. He wrote that he was delayed for 42 minutes while Garcia took his passport and went into the back to make a phone call. When she returned, she told him he had a Department of Homeland Security issue that needed to be resolved but the man seemed incredulous about it.

You be the judge.
