Adele has some advice for manspreaders: don’t do that.
Adele joked that she used to take public transportation herself, and would even take up extra room on the seats by spreading her legs wide. She then put men on blast for doing likewise: “Close your legs, men,” she said.
In 2014, manspreading became such an issue to New York commuters that the Metropolitan Transportation Authority launched an ad campaign to curb the behavior. As defined by the Oxford English dictionary, manspreading is “the practice whereby a man, especially one traveling on public transport, adopts a sitting position with his legs wide apart, in such a way as to encroach on an adjacent seat or seats.”
