Last week, the #PlaneBae saga went viral, as one Rosey Blair documented what she presented as a love connection between a man and a woman on an airplane.
Now, the woman involved has broken her silence, and says that "#PlaneBae is not a romance – it is a digital-age cautionary tale about privacy, identity, ethics and consent."
"I have been doxxed, shamed, insulted and harassed. Voyeurs have come looking for me online and in the real world," she writes in a statement to Business Insider.
She asks for people to respect her privacy.
