United Airlines Gives Less Important Passengers' Seats To Wyclef Jean

united gives passengers seats to wyclef jean

Lameballs!

Passengers who were SUPPOSED to be on a recent United Airlines flight are speaking out because the airline gave Wyclef Jean their seats!

Here's what one of the passengers had to say about it:

"We were at the gate, about to board, and then they took his group and they tore up our boarding passes. We did not receive any compensation, hotel — nothing."

"Wyclef turned around and said, 'What’s happening, what’s going on?' before he boarded. The flight agent told us, 'Political celebrities are treated differently.'"

And here's what a United rep had to say about the incident:

"The customers [who were] denied boarding arrived at the gate within the final 10 minutes before departure."

We are not impressed! If those passengers purchased those seats, then who cares if they arrived at the gate 10 minutes before departure? Obviously they were still letting people onboard, since the more important customer got a seat.

Not cool, United. Not cool AT ALL.

And The Next President Of Haiti Is…

Filed under: Politik

michel martelly elected president of haiti

Things might not have worked out for Wyclef Jean, but ironically enough, a DIFFERENT pop star has been elected President of Haiti.

Popular singer Michel Martelly, aka "Sweet Micky," has won the presidency of Haiti with 67.7 percent of the vote.

Some of the major issues that Martelly promised to address while campaigning include:

- Free education for all children

- A renovation of the agricultural sector

- Restoration of the disbanded army

Following his official inauguration on May 14, he'll be faced with the tremendous challenge of continuing to rebuild the country, after last year's devastating earthquake.

We continue to send our thoughts, prayers, and support to the people of Haiti. We truly hope everything goes well with their new leadership, and we wish them the absolute best!

Do U think Michel Martelly will make a strong president for Haiti? Will he get the country back on track?

Wyclef Opens Up About Being Shot In Haiti

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitik

wyclef-jean-talks-about-haiti-shooting

Wow! We have to hand it to him - he's keeping a pretty cool head on his shoulders, given the circumstances!

Wyclef Jean has finally spoken out about being shot in Haiti, but would rather focus on the fact that an election was happening that day!

He explains:

"It brought light to the fact that there was an election going on that day. I don't think none of you all knew about an election in Haiti until everyone heard what happened to me. It was definitely a graze. The bullet didn't go in or anything. There's a lot to the story … The story is about the fact that we had an election and our party is in the lead. It's a young party, trying to take over the country. [Response when shot] It was more like shock and awe. They put in the anesthesia and stuff. The pain came after all that."

Wow!

Frankly, to us, it doesn't matter whether or not the bullet went in, it still must have been terrifying!

Thank goodness nothing worse happened and he's already on the road to recovery! We're so thrilled that he's got the right perspective and hasn't let this deter him from his political activism there!

Stay strong!
