Delta is now the latest airline to come under fire for their treatment of paying customers. The company is making headlines after kicking off a passenger for using the bathroom while waiting to take off. Literally.
Kima Hamilton was set to take a flight from Atlanta to Milwaukee on April 18 when the flight was delayed for nearly two hours. According to Hamilton, while the plane sat on the tarmac, he had an urge to use the restroom.
Initially, when he got up to use the restroom, a flight attendant said the plane would lose its place in the take-off lineup if he got out of his seat. So he agreed to hold it. But 30 minutes later, the plane was still taxiing, so Hamilton quickly got up. Then … things took a turn for the worse.
“The pilot came on and said, ‘Ladies and gentlemen, I’m sorry for the inconvenience but we have to return to the gate and remove a passenger,’” Hamilton told the Milwaukee’s Journal Sentinel. “It escalated to that point that fast.”
When he came back from the lavatory, he was told to get off the plane.
“I’m not really clear on why I’m being asked to leave this plane. I purchased this ticket, I had an emergency. I had to pee,” Hamilton can be heard saying in cell phone footage recorded by passenger Krista Rosolino. “I tried to hold it the first time and you said I absolutely couldn’t and I’m being kicked off the plane?” he added, before the crew member responded, “I need to talk to you outside.”
According to Hamilton, another Delta employee approached him and insisted he leave. When the 39-year-old Milwaukee-bound passenger finally agreed to get off the flight, the FBI greeted him at the gate.
Kima was then forced to purchase a Southwest flight to get home.
The story is making headlines this week following a whirlwind of controversial stories with airlines.
Earlier this month, United Airlines was blasted for aggressively pulling Dr. David Dao from his flight. And just several days ago, Simon, a 3-foot-long, 10-month-old Continental Giant rabbit on track to become the largest bunny ever, mysteriously died while on board a United flight from London to Chicago.
Hot Or Bothered: Fashion At The 2017 American Music Awards
The night music fans have been waiting for is finally here! The 45th American Music Awards went down right Sunday night at Microsoft Theater in L.A. and a host of your favorite stars hit the red carpet in some looks that were hot and some that had us bothered … let’s start with the hot!
The evening’s host Tracee Ellis Ross sparkled and shined in this burgundy sequined Stella McCartney gown. We’re sure her mother Diana Ross inspired this look.
Meanwhile her sister-in-law Ashlee Simpson Ross dazzled in a sparkly number by Christian Siriano.
And of, the evening’s Lifetime Achievement Award winner and honoree – Diana Ross proved why she’s a music and fashion icon in this black gown and hat.
Selena Gomez showed off her killer bod wearing a Coach leather minidress and brand new platinum hair.
Also killing it in an LBD – that’s leather black dress, was Ciara wearing Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture. Ok Ciara!
Demi Lovato looked like a goddess in this black sheer strapless gown by Ester Abner.
And, Kelly Rowland gave us grecian vibes in this velvet gown with embellished bodice.
But the look that stole the show DJ Khaled’s son Asahd, looking super adorable in his tiny black suit and Gucci loafers that cost a whopping $275. That’s what we call winning at 1 year old.
But someone whose look was not winning … Nick Cannon. We’re not sure why he was dressed like a Bratz doll, but he needs to stop.
Sadly we also have to request that whoever dressed Pink in this awful tulle Monique Lhuillier dress be fired immediately. Sorry we love you Pink but this dress was a hot damn mess.
