Fitness model Jen Selter kicked off Miami flight by police

30 January 2018

Selter, who is rumored to be dating Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis, was on the delayed La Guardia-bound American Airlines flight Saturday when she got out of her seat to grab something from an overhead compartment, TMZ reported.

In a second video an airport security officer can be heard telling Selter: "American Airlines calls the shots".

In the video, Selter says the plane has been sat on the tarmac for over two hours.

Selter, who boasts an 11 million plus Instagram followership, was on a delayed flight from Miami to NY on Saturday (27 January) when the row took place.

'People kept coming up to me.

When the flight attendant asked Selter if she wanted to get off the plane, she said: 'Yes.' Selter later asserted that she was being sarcastic.

Another passenger chose to leave the American Airlines flight in what was described as a display of solidarity.

Another passenger allegedly called the crew "racist", adding, "We are living in Trump's America" - although the moment was not caught on video, and it's unclear why the accusation was made.

"All of a sudden five cops came up", said Selter.

Selter later took another flight with the carrier to NY.

"She flew on American Sunday morning back to New York (LGA)-arriving around 8:30 a.m. ET [Sunday] morning".

Another passenger can be heard supporting Jen, saying: "You are harassing her".

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

The 24-year-old, famous for posting workouts and toned selfies to her almost 12 million Instagram followers, was flying with her sister that day.

"The thing is, I saw what the guy did to your sister - she was just standing after two hours because of you and the other passengers that went to the bathroom", the third woman says in another video. "They don't want you to fly on their plane today".

"I did nothing wrong", reads one of her tweets.

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

American additionally said it offered Selter "lodging housing and transportation, which she declined".
