I get it, you're famous, you're entitled, and wherever you go you can take liberties with the rules because more people know your face than the rules being enforced. But for all us good, kindly, average folk rules are there FOR OUR SAFETY.
What is an airplane? It's an Earth-bound ball of flame and death if one small thing goes wrong. We make smart people endure hours and hours of training before we pay them to operate them. And these people make up the rules for their safest usage.
Enter Josh Duhamel. He has a Blackberry phone. I hear they're hard to put down, hence their nickname "Crackberry." But when he wouldn't turn off his phone as the plane started to take off they docked the plane and peaced his butt right off. I hope that badboy kept him good company as he waited for another flight. Punk.
You'd think after a story like that hit the news wires a PUBLISHING ICON who's GAINED HER FAME by CREATING A NEWS PUBLICATION like Arianna Huffington would take note. But she's such a fan of her beloved Blackberry that she wouldn't give it up during takeoff OR after other patrons complained. So, they landed the plane and peaced her butt off, security-style. Funny, no mention of this incident in her publication, The Huffington Post. Hmmm...
