Flying is stressful, even for celebrities. Even with a few million dollars and a private jet to boot, traveling by air can bring out the worst in people.
Track star Sha'Carri Richardson took to social media to share her experience being removed from an American Airlines flight over the weekend. The 22-year-old sprinter filmed much of the incident and wrote on her Instagram Story that she had complied when a flight attendant asked her to end a phone call, as per People, but the problem began when a male flight attendant allegedly threatened her. In one video Richardson says to the flight attendant, "I'm recording me, but you jumped in my video, so I caught you because you jumped in my video," then adds, "You're harassing me at this point, so I think you should stop." She defends taking a video of herself while attendants ask her to stop.
In a second video, Richardson is seen talking to other passengers about the situation before someone informs her that the captain had made the call to remove her from the flight. "Tell me if I’ll be wrong to pursue legal actions against the airline @americanair not only did the man threaten me but also an innocent bystander who simply just wanted a picture with me," she wrote in the caption.
