Olivia Wilde Twitter shamed New York City subway riders after no one got up to give the 32-year-old pregnant actress a seat Wednesday. 

“NBD, able-bodied riders who won’t give your seat to a GIANT preggo. I’ll just stand riiiiight next to your head and pray I go into labor,” she tweeted. 

Wilde announced in April that she is expecting her second child with fiance and former "Saturday Night Live" star Jason Sudeikis. The couple lives in Brooklyn with their son Otis, who turned 2 earlier this year. 

The "Vinyl" actress, best known for her five-year stint as "Thirteen" on "House," most recently showed off her growing baby bump at the premiere of “Colossal,” starring Sudeikis, at the Toronto International Film Festival last week.

The MTA has been encouraging courtesy with an etiquette campaign replete with tips for improving the transit experience for everyone. The campaign includes suggestions to give up seats for pregnant riders, but either no one saw Wilde and her bump or didn't care to get up. It wasn't clear what train she was riding.
