Hollywood star Josh Duhamel was kicked off a plane Thursday for texting on his BlackBerry after reportedly being told to turn the device off multiple times.
Duhamel was on a flight from New York to Kentucky when he refused to turn his BlackBerry off when the plane was waiting on the runway to take off.
According to TMZ, a witness says Duhamel was “very rude” and “taunting the attendant.”
After the flight attendant told Duhamel to turn his phone off three times, the plane taxied back to the gate where Duhamel was escorted off the plane.
The other passengers on the flight were obviously not happy about the delay he caused.
Duhamel’s rep told TMZ that he was texting on his BlackBerry about his flight being delayed. Duhamel’s rep adds, “He’s sorry.”
