Jen Selter Kicked Off Plane By Police For Not Staying Seated

Fitness model and social media influencer Jen Selter boasts over one million Twitter fans and nearly 12 million followers on Instagram.

Safe to say these American Airlines personnel, who kicked her off a flight from Miami to New York this weekend, aren't among them.

Selter, 24, and her sister were sitting on a delayed flight home for more than two and half hours, according to media reports.

Despite the order given to passengers to stay seated during this delay, she got something from the overhead compartment.

A flight attendant ordered her to sit down.

At that point, Selter refused, allegedly responding that there where two other passengers currently in line for the restroom.

Then it got weird, and heated. The flight attendant asked if she wished to get off the plane, to which Selter replied, “yes.”

Moments after, she was being asked by the captain to get off the plane … and refused, while starting to post videos on Twitter.

Selter is seen in one video admitting that she did say she wanted off, but insists that she was just being sarcastic at the time.

She continued to protest (see clip below) but police were called to the scene and she was eventually removed from the aircraft. 

“American Airlines calls the shots, they don’t want you to fly on their plane today,” a police officer told Jen before ousting her.

Selter, her sister, and another passenger who got into it, telling captain he was “harassing” Selter (below), were escorted out.

Selter shared a video in which another young woman says the flight attendants were harassing her for no apparent reason.

Jen captioned that clip:

“Here is a video of an innocent passenger who on her own decided to get off the plane based on how badly [they] treated us all.”

After the dust settled, Selter and her sister eventually took another American Airlines flight Sunday morning to New York City.

Roy Halladay Killed in Plane Crash; All-Star Pitcher Was 40 Years Old

Roy Halladay, a former Major League Baseball All-Star, Cy Young Award winner and likely future Hall of Famer, was killed on Tuesday in a plane crash.

He was 40 years old.

A two-time Cy Young Award recipient, Halladay was the only passenger in a plane that crashed into the Gulf of Mexico, going down near St. Petersburg around 1 p.m.

He had just recently purchased the aircraft and couldn’t help but gush over his second life as a pilot in multiple Instagram posts.

Wrote Halladay on October 13:

“What do clouds feel like? I didn’t know either until I got my new Icon A5! I’m getting bruises on my arms from constantly pinching myself!” 

Featured in an article on ICONAircraft.com, Halladay also said the following last month:

“I’ve been dreaming about flying since I was a boy but was only able to become a pilot once I retired from baseball.”

“I’ve owned other aircraft, but no aircraft embodies the adventure or captured the dream of flying like the A5.”

“Not only is it the safest and easiest aircraft I’ve ever flown, it is hands-down the most fun.”

“The beaches, lakes, and waterways my family and I get to explore around Florida are mind-blowing.”

“Words don’t do justice to what the A5 allows us to experience.”

“Even my wife, who used to be uncomfortable in small planes, now asks where we should take the A5 for the weekend.

“I’m honored to own the first A5 Founders Edition.”

On the mound, Halladay excelled for the Toronto Blue Jay and Philadelphia Phillies.

He finished his career with 203 wins and a 3.38 ERA, along with 67 complete games and 20 shutouts.

Many considered Halladay to be the best pitcher of his generation.

He retired in 2013 and would be eligible for the Hall of Fame next year, following the customary five-year waiting period after a player performs in his final game.

The hurler threw a perfect game during the 2010 season and a no-hitter that postseason.

Wrote baseball writer Jeff Passan in response to the sad news:

“Roy Halladay was an amazing baseball player, a second-to-none worker and, best of all, a genuine, good person in an industry without enough.”

“The sadness across baseball right now is overwhelming. Roy Halladay was who everyone wanted to be.”

Added the official Major League Baseball Twitter account:

We are saddened by the tragic news that Roy Halladay, 2-time Cy Young Award winner & 8-time All-Star, has died in a plane crash. He was 40.

Halladay is survived by his wife and two sons, Ryan and Braden.

May he rest in peace.
