hahahaah. But Boff, I am important.
"Hello Delta, can I speak to the boff"
A toothy celebrity...
Bad week for the Stern Show staff.. first High Pitch Mike gets thrown out the club, now Booey gets thrown off the plane.
A text summary of JHIG's excellent post (from http://www.examiner.com/article/gary-dell-abate-thrown-off-flight):
"Dell'Abate was headed for the Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Kansas City, Missouri when he was tossed from his pre-purchased seat like so much oversized carry-on luggage. Booey was one of four passengers selected at random to get the Baba Boot because the Delta Airlines flight was over its weight limit.
"It was really embarrassing...Now everybody gets to watch a Z celebrity thrown off the plane. So, I get up front and I start making a tiny scene. I said: 'This is not right. I booked this ticket in February.' I said: 'This just isn't fair. How can you throw me off this plane when I've had my ticket booked for four or five months?'...So, I started to carry on a little bit and they basically said: 'If you don't get off the plane, we're going to get an agent to take you off the plane."
"One of the people who was called was traveling with a minor so he got to stay. I said: 'F**k him! Throw him and his f**king kid off. I could care less!'...I said: 'Go back on the plane! That fat guy in 7B? Throw HIS ass off!"
Dell'Abate was eventually rebooked on another flight, but was forced to race through traffic to another airport across town to catch it. Booey later tweeted a scathing review of Delta to his 200,000 Twitter followers, exclaiming "FU DELTA!"
Too Fat to Fly
Mah personal laff.....rat now is at a 2.........and mah new flight is at gate noine
I love it! Was he wearing a Mets shirt?
They didn't want him flinging his shit all over the plane.
I think I'll fly Delta from now on, just because of this.
what a useless human being.
It's great that it happened to him, but if the exact same thing happened to most any other of us, I know for one, I'd be throwing a shit fit also.
Wonder if the stewardess asked him what he did for a living.
Seriously though, this is the exact reason you don't go on a major radio service after openly screwing your longtime audience. Someone with a chip n their shoulder is bound to fuck with you when presented the opportunity. I hope this is what happened and he deserves it if so.
At least Howard is smart enough to fly a private jet. If he ever went commercial the fucking would be nonstop.
Just a taste of things to come. It's over Booey. Wait till he starts getting thrown out of job interviews.
Good to see this pompous fool get treated like an ordinary civilian - Delta will be on the 'list of companies with bad customer service' in Booey's next book.
While that is an incredibly shitty thing to happen (I'd be furious too), it's always great to see the pompous monkey get knocked down a peg, even when he doesn't derserve it.
This is no comparison to what happened with Mike. Mike didn't comply with the club's dress code, and no club will make an exception for the disturbing looking nobody whose rolling with a sausage fest.
Since coming out of the closet Mike has transformed from a pitiful guy with hilarious comeback who could roll with the puches, to a loudmouth perpetually whiny pussy always looking to play the victim. More importantly, he went from radio gold to radio coal
