This turbulence started on the ground.
A rep for the “Sharknado” star confirmed to the newspaper that Reid was removed from the plane, scheduled to leave Los Angeles for New York. The flight was delayed because Reid “flew into a rage” over being given the wrong seat and not receiving a pillow, TMZ reported.
She “complained loudly” as the crew unsuccessfully tried to appease her, witnesses told the entertainment site.
A video obtained by TMZ shows a flight attendant talking to Reid about getting her baggage before she is seen walking the aisle with her dog.
Police were not called, and Reid caught another flight, USA Today reported.
“Delta flight 613 from Los Angeles to New York JFK-International returned to the gate, prior to takeoff, due to a customer disturbance on board,” a Delta spokesperson said in a statement, per People. “Delta apologizes to the remaining customers for the inconvenience and appreciates their patience as the situation was resolved … The flight redeparted for New York following a short delay.”
The “American Pie” alum’s “side of the story” is that she was upset for not getting a window seat and because a woman was reclining in front of her, TMZ wrote.
Yahoo noted that the incident prompted a bizarre response from Linda Hogan, a former reality star who’s the ex-wife of pro wrestler Hulk Hogan.
Reid raised concerns during an interview in August in which she seemed to slur her speech.
A rep for Reid didn’t immediately respond to a HuffPost request for comment.
