Earlier this week, dad-of-two Anthony Bass, 35, called out United Airlines on Twitter for allegedly making his wife clean up after their daughter.

The baseball player explained that his wife, who is 22 weeks pregnant was travelling with daughters Blaire, two, and Brooklyn Rae, five, who were given popcorn. He posted a photo of the aftermath, with popcorn scattered across the floor by his child’s seat with pieces also in the aisle and in front of the passenger sitting behind Bass' daughter.

He tweeted: "The flight attendant @united just made my 22 week pregnant wife traveling with a 5 year old and 2 year old get on her hands and knees to pick up the popcorn mess by my youngest daughter. Are you kidding me?!?!"

The airline replied to Bass' tweet with a post saying it 'understood his concern', adding: "We'd like to look into this. When you have a moment, please DM your wife's confirmation number along with any additional details regarding her interaction with this crew member."

The baseball player told his 29,400 followers that United had taken action following the incident, saying: "United Airlines is taking care of matters with the flight attendant internally."

His post started a debate over whether Bass’ wife should be responsible for cleaning up or should the airline staff take care of it.

Now, country music singer Jessie James Decker, 34, has weighed in and told her Instagram followers that her sister was ‘exhausted’ when a flight attendant allegedly handed her a wet wipe and trash bag.

Speaking on a since-expired Instagram Story, Decker said: "My sister @sydneyraebass just texted me from her flight on @united. As you know, she is five months pregnant, high-risk, and also traveling alone with her two small children. Blaire accidentally spilled some popcorn in the aisle, and the flight attendant came up to Sydney with a trash bag and a wet wipe, telling her the captain wants Syd to clean up every drop.”

She continued: "My poor sister is on her hands and knees, crying in the aisle, completely humiliated and exhausted, with her children while everyone else watched. Way to go, United."

Mum-of-three Decker continued: “You guys, this whole time I'm thinking that this popcorn is something Sydney just picked up at the little newsstand. Sydney had two flights, and United, on the first flight, they gave them both popcorn.”
