The Chicago P.D. actress had what sounds like the most annoying interaction of all time with a creep on a plane, and then posted a brutal open letter about it on Twitter.

"When you make a woman so visibly uncomfortable, that after you've ignored all visual cues to please leave her alone (one word answers, she pulls out a book, puts on a hat, she actually asks you to not speak to her with the tone and words you're choosing to use) that she finally GETS UP and MOVES SEATS, leave her alone!" Bush wrote. "Do not continue trying to make conversation. Stop turning around and looking at her. Stop leaning out of your seat and towards her body when she has to grab something out of the overhead bin above her original seat, and sadly also above you, mid flight."

She continued, "And in my case, stop believing that you are entitled to make me uncomfortable because you ‘watch my TV show' so I owe you some magical debt. I make it, you watch it. After that, the ‘exchange' is done. You do not get to harass me, or any woman, because you think you pay our bills."

Bush posted the letter to Twitter alongside a middle finger emoji, and the response from her followers has been overwhelmingly positive.

One wrote, "Coming from a guy who was raised to respect women famous or not, I wish I could have been on the plane to distract that jackass!" Another added, "SLAY him. But honestly this is disgusting and nobody deserves to be put in this situation."
