Track star Sha'Carri Richardson recorded herself during an incident that occurred on an American Airlines plane.

Richardson was asked by a flight attendant to end a phone call and put her phone in airplane mode, but she apparently did not appreciate his tone.

She began recording a video, and in response, the flight attendant said:

"You can't record."

Richardson replied:

"You're harassing me at this point so I think you should stop, I think you should stop."

Passengers can also be heard on the video, replying to her comments as the flight attendant continued to ask Richardson to stop recording.

Richardson posted her video to Instagram. From there it was shared on Twitter.

Warning: NSFW language

Richardson took another video after she was asked to exit the plane. After several requests, Richardson eventually exited the plane as passengers applauded.

She captioned the video:

"Tell me if I'll be wrong to pursue legal actions against the airline @americanair. Not only did the man threaten me but also an innocent bystander who simply just wanted a picture with me."
"In the beginning of the video, you can hear a Caucasian male state that he doesn't give a f as a man that male flight attendant is intimidating a woman."
"Also the captain not doing anything to help the situation and this flight attendant has the applause when I exited the plane when I'm pretty serious the disrespect I received would not have happened if I was one of them."

Warning: NSFW language

Unfortunately for Richardson, it seems a majority of viewers are not on her side.

NBC news reached out, but a spokesperson for Richardson said she "has nothing to add at this time."
