Now that's just cold.

American Airlines has issued an apology to two pro basketball players who were kicked off a plane after a flight attendant accused them of stealing blankets.

An airline spokesperson confirmed that Marquis Teague and Trahson Burrell of the Memphis Hustle boarded the South Dakota-bound flight at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on Sunday.

Two first-class passengers handed the NBA G league players their blankets as they headed to their seats in coach. But the warm gesture was torn apart by a flight attendant who accused the athletes of stealing the blankets before forcing them off the plane.

Wendy Williams Invites Critic To Educate Her On Racism LIVE ON TV After Losing Major Sponsor For Anti-NAACP Remarks!

no title

Wendy Williams needs an education… and that's exactly what she's gonna give herself!

The daytime talk show host got into some major heat last week after saying some pretty ignorant remarks about Historically Black Colleges and the NAACP.

ICYMI, the Wendy Williams Show host spoke out on Jesse Williams' powerful BET Awards speech and essentially discredited the existence of HBCUs and the NAACP.

These flippant remarks rubbed most of Wendy's viewers the wrong way, with critics calling her uneducated — and even dubbing her the new Stacey Dash! That's gotta hurt!

But it looks like Wendy is learning from her mistake, and is planning on educating herself with the help of one of her most vocal critics.

According to Love B. Scott, Williams is inviting
