More of a dick move on the bosses part, its a bodily function and we can't always control it. but still OP should have said something instead of let the other person take all the heat and embarrassment.

In a way i can understand OP's embarrassment but come on, OP's boss just overreacted. There's absolutely no reason to give someone hell for something that can be hard to control and very unhealthy to hold in. Honestly

Sometimes you think it's going to be a silent one but it comes out loud...And you can't really compare a fart to be... Fart may smell for a little bit and make noise but pee actually makes a mess... Just saying.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm an adult human that has control over my rectum... I've never in my life "accidentally" farted. You have the full ability to control whether or not a fart comes out..

I think almost everyone on here would have done the same. Even the sanctimonious "You should have owned up, you're a terrible person" commenters. Everyone's a dick sometimes, and nobody welcomes public humiliation, it's unfortunate that sometimes the two coincide. If anything OP's boss is an ass for such an angry reaction to something that people can't control.

Eh I would've owned up, I would've looked like I was going to cry and given them a sob story about gastric problems and it being a genuine medical problem, and made them all feel like arseholes.

I think the boss is the real jerk in the situation! Who yells at someone for something that isn't fully controllable. I doubt op (or the coworker if that's what the boss thought) planned on farting loudly in the meeting or wanted to completely embarrass themselves, so why bother freaking on them for it? I think the fact that they embarrassed themselves in front of their boss and peers is punishment enough. The more professional and mature thing to do would've been to ignore it and pretend nothing happened. And I don't blame op for not speaking up either. She was probably stunned at what was happening and was terrified of the boss. You don't blame or freak out on someone for something they can't control, but even if you thought they could control it and feel the need to talk to them, than you take them aside and talk to them privately. The boss is just being a jerk and a bully in my opinion. I'd take it up with HR.

Seems like a "damned if I do, damned if I don't" type of situation. If he had fessed up, he would have gotten shit from his boss. But since he didn't, now he's probably gonna get shit from the guy that sat next to him. Either way, I blame the boss. I can never understand how huge assholes are able to end up as leaders.
