Witnesses have contradicted the actresses account, stating that the flight attendant only wanted her to stow the crate, while the dog could remain with her throughout the flight.
Tara Reid wants to set the record straight.
The “Sharknado” actress released a statement on her Instagram regarding her removal from a Delta flight on Monday, claiming the airline’s statement about her causing a “disturbance on board” was “completely false.”
Reid claims that she and her dog, who is an emotional support puppy, had the proper paperwork in order for the animal to travel with her, but Delta wanted her to stow him.
“The flight attendant wanted me to put my dog in its carry on and in the overhead bin which was an absurd request considering animals cannot breathe in there, let alone an incident such as this one which took place some time ago and that puppy unfortunately died in that very similar overhead bid, therefore I refused to comply with this ridiculous request,” she wrote.
