Recently Track and Field star Sha’Carri Richardson shared that she was recently removed from an American Airlines flight after an altercation with a flight attendant.
According to Richardson, she was filming a video of herself when the flight attendant approached her.
“I’m recording me, but you jumped in my video. It caught you because you jumped in my video. So, your harassing me at this point, so I think you should stop. I think you should stop.
She then turned to other on the plane and said, ” Y’all see him right? Okay!”
She then turned her attention to another passenger and said ‘I’m sorry but it’s not me. No, talk to him . No ma’am, I’m an adult don’t talk to me like that. Don’t talk to me like that tell him to stop. If you do not know what’s going on do not know what’s going on do not yell at me.
The flight attendant asked her to stop recording and Richardson said, “She will not stop recording because making a video to myself. I’m not going to stop recording and this video will show what you are doing. So, I would appreciate it.”
She couldn’t finish her sentence before someone behind her said, “Shut the f*** up. We all got [the message.”
She would reply, “Who the f*** are you talking to ma’am? Thank you, like no.”
In another Instagram post, she posted a video of her being removed from the plane.
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. In the beginning of the video you can hear a Caucasian male state that he doesn’t give a f as a man that male flight attendant is intimidating a woman. Also the captain not doing anything to help the situation and this flight attendant has the applause when I exited the plane when I’m pretty serious the disrespect I received would not have happened if I was a one of them. One of them even stated good luck with your ban ( I see he took the time to do some research but not stand up for what’s right) soooo @americanair this flight attendant name was John and he refused to state his last name. However him and the lady y’all see standing next to him looked me up ☺️💅🏾also if I see videos posted from this flight, watch.
Tag @americanair if I can help just one person not have to deal with a situation like this with an individual like this, I’ll take the heat 🏽🏽🏽
Super Bowl Champion Odell Beckham Jr comment on Richardson’s Instagram video, “TELLL ME U GIT KICKED OFFF THE AMERICAN FLIGHT FOR NO REASON 😂😂😂😂.
He added, “WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTT 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂. BUTTT IM THE ASSSSHOLE.”
Beckham jr was kicked off a flight at Miami International Airport in November of 2022, according to his attorney, Daniel Davillier, he had been asleep and the incident was attributable to an “overzealous flight attendant.”
“The flight crew was concerned for a passenger [Mr. Odell Beckham], as they tried to wake him to fasten his seat belt, he appeared to be coming in and out of consciousness, prior to their departure,” Det. Argemis “AC” Colome told PEOPLE on Monday. “Fearing that Mr. Beckham was seriously ill, and that his condition would worsen through the expected 5 hour flight, the attendants called for police and fire rescue. Upon the officers’ arrival, the flight crew asked Mr. Beckham several times to exit the aircraft, which he refused.”
“At no time was Mr. Beckham disruptive or combative,” Davillier said. “He was willing to comply with the seatbelt requirement, but the flight attendant wanted to prove that he had the authority to have Mr. Beckham removed from the flight.”
Beckham tweeted about the incident soon after in a series of messages, “Never in my life have I experienced what just happened to me… I’ve seen it all.”
As for Richardson, she defeated, Olympic Champ Elaine Thompson-Herah last August when she made her return to the track.
