Delta Removes “Real Housewives” Family and Service Animal From Flight

Delta Removes “Real Housewives” Family and Service Animal From Flight

Celebrities have the worst display of “DYKWIA” behavior, and reality television stars are no exception. In a recent incident involving a reality star, her family and their “service dog,” it goes to show that no one is exempt from rules.

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” personality Kim Zolciak and her family were boarding a flight from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Atlanta International Airport (ATL). Daughter Brielle took to Twitter in a now-deleted post on the incident: 

“[An employee] at gate 27 delta LAX just kicked my WHOLE FAMILY OFF the flight to ATL bc we were waiting on my dad with our service dog to finish going thru security & kJ & kash started crying bc they thought we left him and Kaia was literally S–TTING AND HE KICKED US OFF!!!! WTF.”

She added that, “He was grabbing my siblings and escorting them off HIMSELF while my moms in the bathroom with Kaia!!!!!!” she added. “I have never dealt with anything like this in my life.”

Instead of garnering sympathy, Twitter followers were quick to point out that the family did not own a service animal. 

One user wrote, “Except you don’t have a service dog sooooooooo …………” 

Another follower said, “I wonder if the police can investigate fake services animals.”

Yes, it was a whole show. Police were called to the scene but ultimately it was chalked up to be a “business dispute.”  

“Upon arrival and investigation officers found the incident to be a business dispute, which was being worked out by the parties involved,” Sgt. Alicia Hernandez said in a statement. “Officers determined no crimes had been committed and cleared the scene with no further action.”

A Delta spokesperson told Page Six, “Mrs. Zolciak Biermann and family elected to deplane their flight after her husband remained behind to provide proper paperwork for an emotional support animal.”

Their dog, a husky-boxer mix rescue, attacked now six-year-old Kash a year prior – nearly blinding him.

    I was in 1C on this flight and witnessed the entire spectacle. Delta did nothing wrong. The flight attendants and gate agent treated Kim and her children with the utmost respect. Delta did not kick them off – Kim demanded to get off when they would not hold the flight for her husband. The flight was already 30 mins late, she got on last and they shut the boarding door. She then demanded to get off if they did not wait for her husband. Her daughter’s Twitter posts are blatant lies and nothing more than an attempt to attract publicity. Such entitled behavior – she needs to fly private and then she can dictate departure times, but not on a public carrier like Delta. Delta should demand she apologize for lying in the press about what happened or ban her from flying on the airline.

    The “service dog”/ESA” is a blatant fake. The animal in question has been wearing a fake vest for years so that he could be taken on public beaches/places. The dog bit their son Kash on the face and required hospitalization…all well documented on twitter. They have flown as a family unit before without the dog. Just another abuse of lax ESA guidelines to bring a dog with a history of biting into the main cabin. Delta should ban this disruptive family for life.

    This group should be restricted to horse-and-buggy transport. And their Twitter accts shut down…..

    These people are trash.

    Why are they flying commercial? They totally deserve to fly private, preferably with Harrison Ford at the controls.
