Five People That Had A Worse Weekend Than You: Airline Atrocities

Five People That Had A Worse Weekend Than You: Airline Atrocities

Is there really anything better than a plan-free weekend? No places to be, no things to do, no people to see? That was my weekend, and it was freaking glorious. Of course, being the Type A person that I am, I did get shit done, but on my own schedule, and things that I wanted to do or had to do for my own sanity during the week ahead. So while that may seem boring to all of you, it was still better than these people’s weekends.

ScHoolboy Q

I can’t say that I’m super familiar with the music of rapper ScHoolboy Q, but that doesn’t mean I’m not hugely sympathetic to the worry he must have endured this weekend after an airline lost his dog.

The artist also known as Quincy Matthew Hanley arrived in Burbank Friday to find that United Airlines was trying to give him someone else’s dog. Turns out that the rapper’s French bulldog named Yeeerndamean was accidentally placed on a flight to Chicago during a layover at the Denver airport.

Of course, ScHoolboy Q took to Twitter to express his (well-placed) outrage:

United was quick to respond…in the lamest way possible:

Ann Coulter

‘Twas a big weekend for the airlines on Twitter, with Conservative columnist Ann Coulter throwing a shit-fit on social media after she was removed for her additional legroom seat.

Coulter tweeted for a solid two hours about how a “dachshund-legged woman” was given the seat that she had pre-booked. She also tweeted pictures of the woman (who was likely an incident bystander in all of this) and noted that “Immigrants take American jobs (& seats on @Delta).”

According to the New York Post, “A Delta spokesman said it appeared Coulter was in the same extra-room row, just in a different seat. But he promised to look into it.”

My main question here: Ann Coulter doesn’t fly first? [via New York Post]

Renee Young and Daniel Bryan

Another thing I don’t know much about is the WWE. Occasionally, I’ll watch Raw or Smackdown and find it relatively entertaining, but I’m not a dedicated fan. So I wasn’t aware there was a talk show after Smackdown Live on the WWE Network…and the key word being “was,” because the show was apparently canceled on Friday. The kicker? Hosts Young and Bryan found out the same way everyone else did – via Twitter.

But fans of the show (and its hosts) can take some comfort in knowing that the show will continue to air after pay-per-view events. And given that the WWE has like one of those a month, that’s something, right? [via People]

Aaron Carter

Remember when Aaron Carter’s biggest problem was trying to choose between Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan? Well, his choice of Lohan over Duff should be been a foreshadowing of future bad decisions, like the one he made on Saturday night when he decided to get behind the wheel intoxicated with weed on him.

Carter was arrested around 9 p.m. in Habersham County, about 90 miles north of Atlanta, and booked on charges of DUI, possession of less than 1 ounce of marijuana and possession of drug related objects. His girlfriend, photographer Madison Parker, was also arrested and charged with obstruction and two drug-related charges.

Carter’s arrest came a few hours after his Twitter said he would miss a show in Kansas City due to transportation issues:

And this was all after a few days after he commented on Shia LeBeouf’s arrest, saying “”You won’t catch me getting any DUIs… I don’t even drink.”

I’m blaming this all on Lindsay. [via CNN]

Mel B.

Stop and think for a minute what it would be like to earn $40k a month. I mean, can you really even imagine making that much money in a single month? Now, envision getting that kind of cash for simply being someone’s ex?

Mel B., former Spice Girl/current America’s Got Talent Judge, was ordered by a judge to pay her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte $40k a month in emergency spousal support until their divorce is finalized, along with a one-time payment of $140,000 for his legal fees. According to TMZ, Mel asserted in an earlier hearing that “Stephen’s financial requests were ridiculous and he needed to get a job” to pay for his costs, such as food, lodging, clothing, and his cell phone bill, but apparently the judge disagreed.

To put it in perspective….Scary Spice does allegedly have a net worth of over $30 million dollars, so 40k a month is a drop in the bucket, right? Makes me Wannabe her ex. [via TMZ]
