Gospel singer nearly booted from Delta flight as attendant asks, ‘Are you going to be quiet?’
Internet users appear to be siding with a Delta flight attendant who threatened to kick a passenger off of a plane if she refused to stay “quiet” before takeoff.
Bobbi Storm, a gospel singer, posted a video on Instagram and TikTok on Nov. 11 which shows her being filmed while standing in the aisle of the plane, as a flight attendant asks her to return to her seat.
She informs the flight attendant that she’s “charting on Billboards” and that she was allowed to stand as the seat belt sign had been turned off.
“It’s not a disturbance,” Storm says to the flight attendant. “I used to sing on planes a long time ago,” she continued, while heading back to her seat.
Storm returns to her seat and begins to share with fellow passengers that she and her singing group have been nominated for two Grammy Awards.
“Are you going to be quiet?” the flight attendant, who also says that he’s the flight leader, asks Storm as she’s speaking to passengers from her seat.
Storm tells the male flight attendant that the passengers are “enjoying it.”
“I’m not enjoying it, so I’m asking you, can you be quiet? That’s a yes or no answer,” he says.
Storm responds, “Am I going to go to jail if I don’t?”
The flight attendant again asks Storm to answer the same question: “Are you willing and able to be quiet right now?”
Storm said she was “doing what the Lord was telling her” to do.
“I’m your flight leader. I need you to follow my instruction – my instruction for you to answer my question. Are you able to be quiet right now?”
Storm then asks fellow passengers what they think.
“OK,” the flight attendant says. “If you’re not able to follow my instruction, you will not be taking this flight.”
“If that’s the case, then that’s fine,” Storm responds.
Markwayne Mullin Challenges Teamsters Representative to Fight During Senate Hearing
Mixed martial arts practitioner Sen. Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) challenged a representative of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters to a fight during a Senate hearing Tuesday, threatening to transform the Senate committee room into an MMA ring.
Mullin confronted a witness, Sean O’Brien of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, regarding comments he previously made about Mullin. O’Brien had called Mullin a “clown” and a “fraud” who “pretends to be self-made.”
Mullin, now a multi-millionaire, left college before graduation to take over his plumbing business after his father fell ill, growing the business and creating several other ventures.
“I wish he was in the truck with me when I was building my plumbing company, myself and when my wife was running the office,” said Mullin, “because I sure remember working pretty hard and long hours.”
Mullin continued to read O’Brien’s earlier comments, which read “Quit the tough guy act in these Senate hearings. You know where to find me, any place, any time, cowboy.”
Mullin, addressing O’Brien, said “Sir, this is a time, this is a place. You wanna run your mouth, we can be two consenting adults, we can finish it here.”
“Okay that’s fine, perfect,” O’Brien replied.
Mullin asked, “you wanna do it now?”
“I’d love to do it right now,” answered O’Brien.
“Alright, stand your butt up then,” Mullin said, as he stood and took off his wedding ring.
“You stand your butt up… big guy,” O’Brien stammered.
Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-VT) gaveled the two down, restoring order.
Mullin fought three MMA matches in 2006-2007, winning all three. He was honored as the 2016 Outstanding American by the Oklahoma Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.
