Arianna Huffington Refuses To Turn Off Her Blackberry On Airplane, Gets Into Fight With Passenger!

huffington post founder gets into airplane dramz

Maybe this is why all the birds are dying…

On a recent United Express flight from Washington Dulles to New York, Arianna Huffington reportedly refused to turn off her BlackBerry.

53-year-old passenger Ellis Belodoff didn't appreciate Miss Huffington's divatude, and he reportedly confronted her and said the following:

"Hey, lady! Don't you speak English?"

Looks like the tables turned though, because the passenger broke the rules himself by getting out of his seat against flight crew instructions, and Port Authority Police of NY and NJ were alerted when the plane landed.

Here's what Port Authority spokeswoman Jen Friedberg had to say about it:

"The crew did alert our police when it looked like there was a fight brewing, but by the time they landed our police just spoke to them."

Apparently nobody got into trouble, but the two trouble-making passengers were given "a talking-to." LOLs.
