Oh Ariana Huffington, you blogger of bloggers! It seems that yesterday, the insane lady (who I love, and thanks no doubt to Tracey Ullman’s terrific parody of) was apparently escorted off of a flight yesterday after she refused to turn off her Blackberry.
The New York Post, via Gawker, gets “law-enforcement sources” to confirm that Huffington and another passenger were spoken to by the police after Huffington refused to shut off her phone on the plane.
Her rep, Mario Ruiz, offered this as the apology for inconveniencing others on the flight: “There was a passenger who seemed upset. Arianna thought he didn’t like the snacks. Guess not. Maybe he was an iPhone fan. As you know, the battle between iPhone lovers and BlackBerry users can get pretty heated.”
What a bitch. I absolutely adore her.
