Jason Mitchell, an actor who was in Straight Outta Compton and Kong: Skull Island (among other films) had some confusion about his seat assignment while boarding a flight recently.
The actor was supposed to fly on Delta Airlines and had booked a seat in first class. When he got to his seat, somebody else was sitting in it and Mitchell “threw a fit“, according to Fox News.
Mitchell was supposed to fly from Las Vegas to Salt Lake City when he found out he wouldn’t be flying in first. This led the actor to go on a threatening, cursing tirade. The situation was filmed by another passenger where other passengers and crew are seen trying to calm the actor down.
It was initially reported that Delta overbooked his first class seat but the airline says that Jason Mitchell missed his flight so he was offered a spot in standby. Since the flight didn’t have room in first, Mitchell was seated in Comfort+, the only seat left on the plane.
It was reported that Mitchell, “paced up and down the first-class section, hurling foul language at the airline’s flight attendants“.
When Mitchell was asked to get his things and deplane, he cursed the flight attendant out.
Soon after the actor calmed down and was in his Comfort+ seat, an announcement was made that all passengers need to deplane due to the situation. Mitchell then said he was getting off of the plane and asked why everyone else had to get off!
Once Mitchell left the plane, he was arrested by law enforcement. Delta decided not to press charges.
