After what appeared to be a row over remaining seated, the crew member is heard telling the model about removing her from the flight.

When the flight attendant asked Selter if she wanted to be removed from the plane, she sarcastically told him that she did. This is where a heated argument started and the pilot got involved.

That's when the flight attendant can be heard saying that another attendant had asked the model if she wanted to get off the plane "and she said yes". "I was obviously being sarcastic", Selter said.

Selter refused to comply, allegedly arguing that there where two other passengers standing in line for the restroom.

"American Airlines calls the shots".

"All of a sudden five cops came up", said Selter.

Selter regularly wows her followers with suggestive photos in which she flaunts her curves and wears revealing clothing.

She hinted on social media that another passenger chose to leave the plane in response to the treatment of Selter and her sister.


The 24-year-old - who typically shares photos and videos of her workout routines with her almost 12 million followers - documented her interaction with the flight crew while boarding a plane from Miami to NY.

Selter, who has 11.7 million followers, says the delayed flight had been sitting on the tarmac for more than two hours on Saturday night, when she got up to stretch and put her jacket away.

In another video, a passenger defends Selter.

- Jen Selter (@JenSelter) January 28, 2018I did nothing wrong but got kicked off the plane. "I just want to be clear that we were on the plane at the gate for 2 plus hours because of a MECHANICAL issue which had nothing to do with me", she wrote.

"The crew's asking for you guys to be removed", the model was told following the spat over taking her seat.

Selter told the New York Post, "They made me feel like a bad person, and I did nothing wrong".

A spokesperson for the airline told Newsweek Selter "was asked to leave the aircraft after a disagreement occurred".

Responding to the allegations, airlines authorities claimed that the model was offered accommodation and transportation but she declined.
