Tara Reid Denies Getting Kicked Off Flight & Claims Delta Wanted Her Dog In The Overhead Bin
Don’t get it twisted about Tara Reid’s latest travel misadventures!
The Sharknado star took to social media to clarify recent reports about her apparently getting kicked off a Delta flight after causing a “disturbance on board.”
As we reported, witnesses on the Monday flight said the 42-year-old was loudly complaining about her wrong seat assignment and the plane’s lack of pillows. The New York-bound aircraft ended up returning to the gate prior to takeoff, where Reid was let off with her small Yorkie.
But don’t think the actress was booted off the flight — gurl left peacefully… according to a long-winded statement she posted on Instagram Wednesday.
Attempting to set the record straight, Reid claimed that she wasn’t forced off the aircraft, but willingly departed after a flight attendant took issue with her 3-month-old emotional support dog.
Reid alleged she was asked to put the pup in either the overhead bin or in the “belly of the plane.” Finding both options “absurd,” the actress said she “gracefully declined and deboarded the plane on my own accord.”
Video footage of the incident obtained by TMZ, however, makes it seem like she didn’t have much of a choice. She was pretty graceful about it, though!
