Josh Duhamel Gets Kicked Off A Plane


Last night, Josh Duhamel refused to turn off his cell phone as he sat on a plane which was supposed to fly from New York to Kentucky. The plane, which, according to TMZ had already left the gate had to turn back around because of the way Josh was acting. Three times a flight attendant asked him to turn off his phone and on the third time, Josh laughed at the flight attendant and began taunting her. At that point, she called for backup, the plane turned around, and police escorted Josh off the plane.

His rep says that Josh was texting people to let him know his flight would be delayed and that he was sorry. If it happened to one of us we would probably still be in jail. Just another example of how celebrities think they are above the world. Not only was he acting like a prick, he caused an already delayed flight to be even more delayed because of his antics.

Very sad that Josh has let fame go to his head. Maybe he needs to head back to All My Childres as Leo so that he can remember his roots...

I'd love to know where he gets this sense of entitlement. He's marginally talented (at best) and not exceptionally good looking. I've never seen a movie with him in it, and if I have he's clearly forgettable. Not to mention how he cheats on his wife. Good guy all around, I'd say.

What a douche. I would have been so irritated if I had been on that plane.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

I probably would have said something to him cause I can't stand entitled shit like that.

jess said...

Oh, what a jackass.

As I always say "Awww to be a WHITE CELEBRITY"

This is my life said...

D-bag

@MM

That hurt, but it's probably true. :'(

Jail? Fine?? Court date??? Come on, has to be something here. Nothing? Really??

Miss X said...

I actually kind of liked him. Not anymore.

But I can't stand anyone who does that. So annoying when people won't get off their phones!

delilah said...

Christ you make a couple of $hitty movies and you think you are a hero...f-ing idiot.
LOVE how the plane turned around to toss his a$$ out!

Karmen said...

Ew. What an asshat.

MontanaMarriott said...

Sorry Sue Ellen but as a person of color that double standard drives me fucking nuts

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

Don't be sorry. I understand. I don't, but I get the reasons/ideas behind it. It just hurts a little cause I'm white.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

Not your fault though.

MISCH said...

Idiot...fair looks, limited talent...doesn't he know there's a line behind him read to take his place...what a jerk

Missjenny619 said...

That really ruffles my feathers. I would have told him off. I'm glad he got kicked off the plane and I am glad this story got out.

I didn't care about him worth a damn before though. He married a chick who pissed herself on stage. Classy. Both of them.

jax said...

he's from Minot for god's sake! LOL.

chopchop said...

I hope any passenger who missed their connecting flight sues his douche ass.

I also want to know if he ever busted out the "Don't you know who I am?" bit.

RocketQueen said...

Superficial just posted that the text he wrote was "Bitch stewardess just told me to turn off my phone. TRANSFORMERS, honey." Made me laugh my ass off. I'm pretty sure the Superficial was joking (?) but what a jackass. Totally believe he cheated on Fergie, too.

Mooshki said...

"he's from Minot for god's sake!"

Exactly.

This behaviour is not limited to celebrities. Every time I fly there is some douche who won't turn off their cell. And gets belligerent about it. One time, this guy across the aisle from me argued with the flight attendant for a good ten minutes, and then turned his phone off, only to turn it back on as soon as she left. Like, dude, they're not telling you to shut it off just to spite you, it's a safety issue. Luckily the person seated next to him caught on and called on the FA again, and she took his phone away *L* Kids tactics for a grown-ass man.

Peg said...

What a dick!

von said...

*sigh* Just turn off the damn phone! I hate people sometimes.

BlackCat14 said...

"he's from Minot for god's sake!"

LOVE it!!! I'm originally from North Dakota (actually a good place to grow up), and even North Dakotans don't claim Minot!

What a tool...

I always wonder what goes through the head of idiots like this. I have a good story though. A few years ago I was working a flight and this Japanese guy in the back row (who spoke perfect English) wouldn't stow his HUGE camera. It was the type of camera used for filming.He was incredibly nasty to me. Even after I explained that it was a regulation, blah blah, and another PASSENGER told him to do as he was told, he put it under the seat. He was just glaring at me. Well I just knew he was going to pull it out as soon as I left, and sure enough... We taxied back to the gate and I punted his dumb ass off the plane. Then he tried the " I don't speak English" card. Yeah, right. The look on his face was priceless, it made my day. Oh, and the very best part was that the baggage guys were good friends of mine and they took all his checked bags, removed all of the tags and threw it on the International belt. He probably didn't see his bags for weeks. Karma is a bitch.

Missy said...

Ugly inside and out.

Mooshki said...

That's hysterical, Maharesred! It's the age-old lesson: "Don't fuck with the service staff!"

timebob said...

Doesn't he know that Optimus Prime has a bigger role in the Transformers then he does. Oh, and btw the franchise is over next year buddy. Glad you married a rich girl to take care of you when your acting drought starts.

sunnyside1213 said...

I have worked in aviation in the past and according to the engineers and pilots, it doesn't make a difference to the planes systems. I think it is just so everyone on the plane can't be yacking away for the whole flight. How annoying would that be/

Mooshki said...

That's true, Sunnyside. There has been talk in the last year of letting people use them once the planes are in the air. That would pretty much guarantee I'd never fly again.

timebob said...

The likelyhood of a cell phones and electronic devices intererring with the instruments is small. But even if it is a 1 in a million chance. YOU TURN YOUR F'N CELL PHONE OFF. I doubt the FAA would be changing the rules anytime soon.

And being 30,000 feet in the air, good like getting service.

Mooshki said...

Google it - like everything else in our country, it's all about the cash. When it becomes profitable for airlines/phone companies to allow it, it'll happen.

B626 said...

I don't get the no cell phone thing either. I always turn mine off like a good little sheep but it's just cuzz they 'say so'.

lanasyogamama said...

It must have been really bad if they turned back. I hope it ruins his rep.

MCH said...

Why can't people follow simple rules??

Bummer about that attitude. A friend of a friend met him recently at a fundraiser & said he was super sweet.

nijiade said...

Do you have to have your cellphone turned off during the whole flight in the US? I'm pretty sure it's only for take-off and landing in Europe. It doesn't change my view of Duhamels d-baginess in this case but I'm just curious.

sunnyside1213 said...

In the US, phones have to be off from push off from the gate and can't come back on until you arrive at the gate.

Luvtheblinds said...

who is he?

RocketQueen said...

@nijiade - I was thinking the same thing! I'm pretty sure here in Canada we just have to turn them off for taking off and landing. We can use them once we're up in the air for games or whatever.

weezy said...

Sorry, if the person who knows how to get off the !@#$%$ plane when it tilts, the lights go off and the cabin fills with smoke tells me to do something, I'm gonna be *real* nice to them.

TMZ had further footage of Duhamel at FAO Shwarz earlier that day shoving a bystander as he was leaving the store with Fergie, then cursing out the papps as he got into his car. Middle of the day, you show up at an NYC tourist mecca at Xmas time with no overcoat, in suit and tie and your old lady in a cocktail dress and 5-inch heels, and you think you blend? Um, don't come back to town for a while, pal.
