Bush was made to feel uncomfortable by a male passenger during a plane ride on Friday and took to Twitter to share her experience.
Former ‘One Tree Hill’ star Sophia Bush has written an open letter to the ‘Random Dude’ on a plane who just wouldn't leave her alone on Friday. In the letter the actress called out the man for failing to realise he should stop talking to her, even when she asked him to stop and when she later moved seats.

“Dear Random Dude on a plane,” Bush began. "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 not to speak to her with the tone and words you're choosing to use) that she finally GETS UP and MOVES SEATS, leave her alone.
"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."
The actress went on to say the man should not feel entitled to anything from her, just because she’s a famous person. ”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," she continued.
"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. You don't bro, I DO." The 34-year-old then ended the letter: "Signed, Every Woman On The Planet Who Is Sick of Your Creepy S**t.”
