How embarassing…Josh Duhamel was kicked off a flight for not turning off his cellphone after a flight attendant asked him to turn off her Blackerberry…OMG, How rude!
On Thursday, the actor was escorted from a plane in New York City after he ignored repeated requests by an airline staff member to turn off his BlackBerry device.
â€œThe incident obviously happened and heâ€™s sorry,â€ Joshâ€™s publicist toldÂ Access Hollywood on Friday regarding the incident.
According toÂ TMZ, which first reported the story, the actor was on a plane set to travel from LaGuardia in New York, to Kentucky, when he ignored repeated warnings to turn off his cell phone. A fellow passenger told TMZ the actor was â€œtaunting the attendantâ€ who asked him to turn off his phone three different times.
The plane was reportedly at the runway and was forced to head back to the gate, where it taxied at a gate and officers removed the actor, delaying the flightâ€™s departure by 90 minutes.
Josh was in New York City on Thursday, supporting wife Fergie, who was honored as Woman of the Year at Billboardâ€™s Women In Music Luncheon.
