An 82-year-old Broadway producer and her 91-year-old husband were kicked off the Queen Mary 2 after getting into a heated argument with a fellow passenger at a black-tie dinner, according to a report in the New York Post.
Gloria Sher and Frederick Evans reportedly got into a shouting match with a dining companion who, the couple claims, made an anti-Semitic remark.
Sher said a fellow cruiser told her to shut up, and said, "There are too many Jews on board," the Post reported.
Sher, who is Jewish, told the paper that she became angry, saying, "F**k you!" and "How dare you insult me!"

So much anger - so little time;)
Ship’s not big enough for the four of them I guess.
As you become older, you become more of what you always were.
World Elite meet NY Elite. No class on either side . . .
LOL! Methinks she may have been playing the race/religion card.
Sadly, Rick Sanchez was not at her table at dinner. He could have done the scene in Scarface when they are out at dinner and Tony insults all the dinner guests.
Yep, you realize you held back what you really felt because people have feelings.......then you realize who the hell cares what they think. Yea granny you go girl.
I hope they bumped them off in the middle of the Atlantic. They could have just requested other table mates...
If someone said too many Jews on board, why should anyone put up with that crap?
But then maybe the cruise line agreed there were too many Jews on board.
The Queen Mary still sails?
I thought it was turned into a Disco during the days of K.C and the Sunshine band, then it went to a Ghost Ship...
Hey my Mom is 78 and she is pretty feisty, she has a couple choice words for me once in awhile, but I keep my mouth shut...
She’s My mom and she was always a great mom, now she is just old and cranky....
I agree with you. I think there’d more outrage around here if someone had said that there was too many Americans on board..
From my experience of parent’s generation, I can not imagine any of them dropping the “f” word like this.
Christians endure these kind of bigot insults as a way of life in the US now. If I f-worded everyone who insulted and harassed Christians, that is all I would do in life.
Well, I guess this is now what we have to look forward to: An 82 year old shouting *F**K YOU*. For what ever reason, that image depresses me.
This is what she said so who knows. I can bet she probably voted for Obama.
“If someone said too many Jews on board, why should anyone put up with that crap?”
No joke. Old coot or not, I would have kicked his ass.
(And no, I am not Jewish.)
“Sher and Evans were allowed to remain on board until the QM2 returned to New York, but only after they agreed to stay in their room.”
What would they do otherwise? Make them walk the plank?
Cunard, the cruise line that operates QM2, released a statement, saying, "Sir Evans and Lady Sher engaged in multiple incidences of disrespectful and disruptive behavior towards crew members and other guests,"
You have never worked or volunteered at a *Nursing Home*
