Actor Josh Duhamel was kicked off a flight in New York yesterday.
Duhamel, 38, was asked to turn off his Blackberry but he refused according to reports. He was then escorted off of the plane by airline reps confirms TMZ.
TMZ also reports that a source said that Duhamel was extremely rude to the flight crew. How terrible is it that a celebrity thinks that they are above others? Duhamel seems a little arrogant, so this really isn’t surprising but it’s kind of annoying.
We’re glad that Duhamel was escorted off the plane. He shouldn’t have disrespected anyone because there really isn’t a need. Duhamel should be treated no different from other passengers, and it’s evident that the airline personnel felt the same way.
Airports can be a hassle as it is and a lot of people have anxiety when it comes to flying, so this next part of the story is even more frustrating! TMZ says that the plane was already on the runway and had to go back to the gate so that Duhamel could be escorted off!
