Actor Josh Duhamel is our least favorite person right now. One of the big rules of air travel, especially if you’re a frequent-flying celebrity like he is, is you do not mock or be rude to a flight attendant who happens to be in charge of your safety. That’s a huge no-no! And yet, The Transformers star did exactly that and was rightly kicked off the plane today in New York.
Here’s what happened: the flight attendant asked Duhamel several times to turn off his Blackberry, as the plane was already taxiing and preparing for take-off. Instead of complying, he proceeded to taunt the attendant and be “very rude.” The result was that his bad behavior caused the plane to turn around, return to its gate, and offload the cranky Josh with airport security. Good riddance.
This kind of petty power-play by celebrities really gets us peeved, especially when they cause delays and frustration for the rest of the passengers on the plane. Oh, and his flight was heading to Kentucky, so it’s not like he was jetting to anywhere important. Just kidding, KY, we love ya.
