I know how this would have been handled in Russia. He'd have a boot in his @@@.
Not me. I refuse to claim him as a fellow. He's off the team.

I have no problem believing this vulgarity happened. I also have no problem believing that so many C-D posters consider it legit news. Although, honestly, it's not the sort of thing one someone automatically believes without investigating for themselves, and all I saw was tabloid after tabloid after tabloid.
Ok, I got a laugh out of that. I have long since discovered that 'Current Events' is just a CD euphemism for 'Gossip Column'. It's rarely anything I'd consider real news, but it can often be quite entertaining.

We are left with weird news here since we can't talk about anything too controversial or political.

Exactly. CD Daily Mail. The equivalent of the UK's Daily Mail.

This is disturbing but the flight attendant can NOT be forced to wipe a passengers ass.

Yet they did. That's the point.

There's more to the story here...

Although Taiwanese culture can be obligatory to the rich and famous typically this is at a cost and because the person in power has some type of knowledge about your family to shame them.

I find it odd a random flight attendant felt the need to defile herself for some random Obese American. Things like this happen in Asia but usually behind closed doors where they usually have a maid wipe their elderly grandfather but that is in the job description...

It is hard to believe she did it because she felt forced or would be fired...There's a lot of anti-American sentiment politically lately with Trump, so it's hard to believe she would feel culturally pressured to abide by this request. I consider myself well versed with Asian geopolitics and culture but am not Asian myself, so if a Taiwanese or Mainlander wants to weigh in here feel free if I missed something.
