United Airlines

Accused of Exposing Girl

To Masturbating Passenger

United Airlines has just been accused of allowing a male passenger to masturbate next to a 17-year-old girl on board one of its flights last year.

Monica Amestoy -- now 18 -- has filed a lawsuit against UA, claiming she was flying back to L.A. from a high school debate tournament in New York last October when the incident occurred.

According to Amestoy, represented by Gloria Allred, a male passenger seated across the aisle from her exposed his penis to her during the flight ... and masturbated.

Amestoy says she complained to a flight attendant multiple times -- and the flight attendant did nothing to stop the man from continuing his behavior ... she wasn't moved, and the passenger wasn't addressed in any way.

Amestoy says the man briefly stopped masturbating while the flight attendant was nearby, but quickly resumed once the flight attendant left.

According to Allred, the man in question has since been arrested, prosecuted, and convicted in connection with the alleged crime. Allred says the man has also been ordered to register as a sex offender.

Amestoy is suing for negligence, false imprisonment, and intentional infliction of emotional distress -- demanding unspecified damages. A rep for United Airlines tells us, "The comfort and security of our customers is our top priority, and we will closely review this complaint when we receive it."

Gloria Allred is a ****ing shrew from the deepest pits of hell. If the girl was bothered by it, she should have gotten the **** up and said something. There are usually less than 4 crew members on a flight of 100 plus people and they can't be expected to know what every single person on a flight is doing at every single moment. Someone kill this bitch and make the world a better place.

This woman was once a strong civil rights advocate. For the last 15 years she has been nothing more than a sad punch-line.

It would be the greatest thing ever if she called a press conference and nobody showed up.
