Airline Takes The Piss Out Of Famous Passenger On Twitter

Written by Simply Zesty on

In what can only be described as a bizarre story famous French actor Gérard Depardieu has been kicked off a plane for urinating in the aisle on a plane with 100 other passengers. Depardieu who had been drinking decided he had to go there and then and in a strange twist Cityjet who operate the flight seem to think that this was something amusing and that it needed to be shared with all the twitter followers as they started tweeting a serious of jokes about the incident later that day. It didn't seem like a laughing matter at the time though as Depardieu was escorted off the flight even though he had offered to clean it up


When a stewardess asked him to sit and wait 15 minutes until the jet took off and reached cruising altitude, he said he could not wait. "And there and then he stood up and did it on the floor," she told the French broadcaster.

"We could see he had been drinking. The stewardess was dumbfounded," she added. "No-one said anything. It all happened with courtesy. Mr Depardieu sat back down and the plane returned to the parking area to be cleaned."

Airline Tweets Back

I'm not sure if I agree with a company having a laugh at one of it's customers over such a serious incident via their twitter account but it is certainly getting them some attention. You have to take it all with a pinch of salt but you do wonder what would have happened if it was a bigger celebrity or a bigger airline.
