While another passenger went to the bathroom, Selter, 24, decided to stand up. This allegedly sparked a fight with a flight attendant who wanted her to sit down, according to the videos posted to Selter’s Twitter page.

In the above video, a passenger can be heard telling the staff that Selter and the other women were doing nothing wrong and the flight attendant was “harassing her.” 

The man then asked the staff, “why are you being aggressive with this lady?” 

In the end, five cops escorted Selter and two others off the plane.

“American Airlines calls the shots,” a cop told Selter. “They don’t want you to fly on their plane today.”

Selter described the incident as the “worst experience” and said that an “innocent passenger who on her own decided to get off the plane based on how badly American Airlines treated us all.” 

American Airlines told CBS Miami that it “offered Selter hotel accommodations and transportation,” but she declined.
