VIDEO: American Airlines Calls Police To Remove Model Jen Selter
Miami, FL - Instagram model Jen Selter was kicked of an American Airlines flight after a dispute with an attendant on Jan. 27.
Selter, who has 11.7 million followers on Instagram, stood up in the airplane while it was delayed for an hour and a half, according to TMZ.
She said she got out of her seat to stretch and put her jacket away, according to the New York Post.
A male flight attendant then told her to sit down and said, “You have to sit, ma’am,” according to Selter.
“The plane wasn’t taking off. I told him to relax. But he had something against me,” she said. “He was so nasty.”
Selter said the flight attendant asked her, “Do you want to get kicked off the plane?” Selter said she responded in a sarcastic manner, “Yeah.”
“Just like that, 5 cops coming at me. Worst experience American Air,” Selter tweeted Jan. 27. “I did nothing wrong but got kicked off the plane.”
The New York Post reported that Selter and her sister were escorted off the plane by police.
There is video footage on Selter’s Twitter page that shows a police officer telling Selter, “American Airlines calls the shots. They don’t want you to fly on their plane today.”
Selter said she would never fly American Airlines again.
She told the New York Post, “I’ve seen cops come onto flights. But they shouldn’t kick people off unless something is actually dangerous.”
An American Airlines spokesperson said the company tried to make amends with Selter, but she refused.
“Ms. Selter was asked to leave the aircraft after a disagreement occurred last night at Miami International Airport (MIA),” the spokesperson said. “American offered her hotel accommodations and transportation, which she declined.”
Another passenger was also removed who was sitting in front of Selter after she complained about another issue.
Selter is rumored to be dating NBA basketball star Kristaps Porzingis of the New York Knicks.
