Instagram star Jen Selter gets yanked off an American Airlines flight

Selter says a flight attendant yelled at her to sit down so they could take off, but when she told him to "relax" because the two people sitting next to her were in the bathroom, he asked her if she wanted to be kicked off the plane.

American Airlines disclosed to ABC News of the occurrence, "Ms. Selter was requested to leave the air ship following a contradiction happened [Saturday] night at Miami International Airport (MIA)". The flight attendant asked Selter if she wanted to sit down and she said "no", when asked if she wanted to get off the plane she said "yes".

Police later came onto the plane to remove Selter and her sister.

Selter, who posted a video on Twitter showing flight attendants from the airline telling her she would need to leave the aircraft on Saturday, took to Good Morning America on Monday to discuss the incident in detail.

'People kept coming up to me.

"American Airlines calls the shots".

Instagram fitness model Jen Selter shared a turbulent arrangement of recordings via web-based networking media on Saturday after she was expelled from a postponed flight. It is unclear if the fellow passenger was traveling with her or not. She has since said that she only stood up to stretch and put her jacket away.

The fitness blogger then recorded as multiple law enforcement officials stood waiting for her to exit the plane.




"I was obviously being sarcastic", she can be seen saying in the video clip, while talking to the captain later on.

Jen Selter attracts nearly 12million Instagram followers.

Another passenger can be heard speaking in Selter's defense, accusing the flight crew of "harassing her".

"I did nothing wrong but got kicked off the plane", she tweeted. "I just want to be clear that we were on the plane at the gate for 2 plus hours because of a MECHANICAL issue which had nothing to do with me", she wrote.

According to Page Six, Selter said of the experience: "It was humiliating".

Selter told the New York Post, "They made me feel like a bad person, and I did nothing wrong".

Responding to the allegations, airlines authorities claimed that the model was offered accommodation and transportation but she declined.
