Sharknado and American Pie star Tara Reid and her dog were kicked off of Delta flight 613 from Los Angeles to New York JFK on Monday.
Initial reports were that she was apoplectic over her seat assignment and that she didn’t have a pillow. The aircraft had already pushed back when the captain announced to the plane that they’d be returning to the gate causing a delay.
Now she’s speaking out. She claims the incident was about her emotional support dog, a 3 month old puppy which she had registered in advance. Reid says a flight attendant “asked her place her puppy in her carry on and in the overhead bin.” When she refused, the flight attendant demanded she check the dog.
Tara Reid posted an open letter to her instagram account claiming reporting of the event is fake news.
Initial reporting was that she was placed on another flight, suggesting she flew Delta to New York, however she says she flew another airline.
That fact notwithstanding I am extremely skeptical of her story that a flight attendant demanded her dog go in the overhead bin after United killed a dog that way earlier in the year. None of the other passengers reported this. And it’s Tara Reid.
