Skip to comments.American Airlines Treated Me Like a Dog [Celebtard Demands "Emotional Support" Pet Fly With Her]
Posted on 02/04/2013 2:34:02 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
Kristin Chenoweth says she was the victim of a screaming, angry gate agent who bullied her and embarrassed her when she tried to board an American Airlines flight with her emotional support dog ... and now the airline is begging for her forgiveness.
TMZ has learned, the altercation went down this week as Kristin boarded a flight from Dallas to L.A.. We're told Kristin had her emotional support dog in tow -- as she always does -- when she was confronted by a gate agent supervisor who claimed Kristin didn't have the proper paperwork to bring the dog on board.

I long for the day when all these nervous people meet my emotional-support snake.
Sorry, but I think 99% of these “emotional support” PETS are created from selfish gasbags who get DOCTORS to write letters that these animals are “medical or mental necessities” so that their “patients” can indulge their pooches and kitties.
Kristin Chenoweth hit the big time as Glenda in the Broadway show “Wicked”, but her latest claim to fame is starring in the now-dead ABC “comedy” “Good Christian B****es”...
Kristin says she is a follower of Christ, but she also sees nothing wrong with sodomy.
Never heard of her...
Another “do you know who I am” moment. But then, why should she expect to be treated like anything but royalty with the constant worship lavished upon her and others like her?
Well if she got all worked up, her dog obviously wasn't providing emotional support. Perhaps the public and the airlines would be better served if Kirsten didn't fly.
You know what they say... there's a certain segment of the population for whom flying was never intended.
Admittedly ignorant to the modern thinking of 2013, this concept of “emotional support dogs” is seemingly idiotic nonsense. Now excuse me as I go off to hug my GSD...
A nice response to the “Do you know who I am?’’ question is “No. But I’ll know who you were if you don’t get f**k out of my face’’.
Tough call here, Rush...lead with this or the Sodomite Bowl...
Give her a Teddy-Bear and quit causing this dog undue stress and let the animal live a more normal existence.
American Airlines once allowed a pet pig on a flight out of Philadelphia. Making the flight safer from acts of terrorism I’ll bet. No bacon grease allowed.
Corrected this for you.

Sorta reminds you of all the glaucoma ridden in CA doesn’t it?
Kristin Chenoweth ...

Yeah, a FAKE Christian follower on a program that was designed to bash Christianity Hollywood style. There is nothing Christian about the show other than having hypocrite actors professing to be Christans on it. No real Christian actor would even consider doing a show like that. In fact Satan gives it a two thumbs up as does Ebert.
Why is it all these stories come from has been or never was Horrywood types.
She went from Good Christian Bitch to Stupid Hollywood Bitch.
He's also my personal masseur and hair stylist.
Since the Pet Rock is no longer around, it’s time for someone to invent the Pet Turd.
Still think so?
See post #19.
Just because some phony weirdos abuse the system doesn’t negate the benefits for those who truly need them.
“Sorry, but I think 99% of these emotional support PETS are created from selfish gasbags who get DOCTORS to write letters that these animals are medical or mental necessities so that their patients can indulge their pooches and kitties.”
Am I one?
That isn’t the one that ‘got lost’ recently, is it?
That was Alice the Ball Python.
At 7+ feet and 20 pounds, Bob would pretty hard to lose, even if he did decide to let go of me.
Didn’t think so...looked a little large for the ‘nooks and crannies’ found around the house...
That was the worst movie ever.
All of the snakes were CGI *except* for the Ball Pythons that were “charging menacingly” down the aisle in a couple scenes.
Anybody who runs screaming from a Ball Python needs their heads/nads examined.
90 wasted minutes I’ll never get back.
Do you want to meet mine?
(stands way too close)
I have an “emotional support” Kimber Ultra Carry.
Can i get a doctor’s note to let me take it on a plane?
That was USAirways. And the woman also had a note from her doctor. ‘Emotional support’ dogs are NOT service dogs. They should not be treated the same and they DON’T belong on airplanes. If someone is so emotionally unstable or fragile that they need a dog to keep their emotions in check, they just might to stay home.
People who need emotional support dogs are obviously unstable - possibly dangerous, & should require a full security inspection EVERY TIME they fly.
Beyond that, if I, a commoner, had brought an emotional support dog to fly with me, I’d still be sitting at the gate as the plane flew away, with no apology from anyone.
Beyonce has to pay for tickets for her entourage, but you could bring yours on a "disabled" claim ;-).
Aren’t you two just a font of human kindness?
“If someone is so emotionally unstable or fragile that they need a dog to keep their emotions in check, they just might to stay home.”
Because I spent 5 years being molested as a kid and have GAD and PTSD because of it, I should lock myself in my house and never come out?
Because of severe neurological problems from a near fatal injury that resulted in permanent balance issues, the dog has been trained to ‘brace’ to keep me from falling, I should give up and never go for a walk?
You obviously have no comprehension of what these -legitimately- required animals do for their owners.
Who died and made you God?
Tom says there’s also “Snakes on a Cartesian Plane.”
I wonder if the proliferation of “emotional support animals” is related to the outlawing of smoking almost everywhere. People who once could have eased their anxieties - about flying, for example - with a cigarette no longer have that option.
He’s great as a masseur but really sucks as a stylist.
As you may have noticed, my bangs were ‘styled’ into a nightmare by his attempt at being a hat.
[he’s also “over friendly” which I’m sure my fellow passengers would not appreciate]
My snakes stay home unless I’m going to an educational event or a vet.
That is the most insensitive thing I’ve ever heard.
Stick her and the dog in a crate and let them ride together in baggage.
For an added bonus it will solve that emotional problem at the same time.
She won’t demand to ride with her dog a second time.
If it is, a pox upon them.
Take a damn Valium or get drunk and get over it.
These programs started as Godsends to people with social anxieties and numerous physical disabilities which seriously impaired their ability to function *but* did not qualify them for very expensive, professionally trained *service* dogs.
They could train their own dog, go through the extensive medical hoops necessary to have one ‘prescribed’ and have something resembling a normal life again.
Then, the takers and leeches found loopholes and it all went to hell.
If the *privilege* is ever revoked, it will be those people who ruined it for those who truly need it and do not cheat the system.
[and yeah, I’ve got an attitude about them...military personnel are being affected by the abuses, too]
Well, I’ll say airline personell certainly seem to prove that old addage about power corrupting. Having the TSA behind them to throw anyone off a plane (and, of course worse) has turned them largely into a bunch of Nazis. I’ve seen plenty of times where the airline people are clearly LOOKING for a fight, and the passenger simply cannot get them to dissengage. Why should they? Their brother is now the big bully on the block.
“That is the most insensitive thing Ive ever heard.”
Until you posted.
If this person had a real life they would not need an emotional support pet!
Those are all informative links, and the programs all look excellent. But they are well-trained dogs who help people with real injuries. I doubt that either of those descriptions apply here.
I think she’s a complete crock too but it’s soulless to lump everybody else in with her.
I guess I expect better from the the theoretically “good” people of FR yet I’m frequently disappointed.
Before I wrote my first reply here, I googled for “Kristin Chenowyth” and “emotional support dog”. There is precious little on her situation in the history of the internet before this incident, which I would say is why it seems to be little more than one woman’s indulgence. One link on one page shows what many here are thinking:
“For those who have been asking, here is the definition of Emotional Support Dog. An emotional support animal (ESA) is a US legal term for a pet which provides therapeutic benefit to its owner through companionship and affection. Emotional support animals are not specially trained to ameliorate disability as psychiatric service dogs are. They require only as much training as an ordinary pet requires in order to live peacefully among humans without being a nuisance or a danger to others.”
By that definition, which I think is the definition instinctively being used by most of us here, Chenowyth’s situation is not the same as you and your pet.
If you would indulge me (us) for a bit and re-read even the more strident responses, I think you’ll find that the outrage is that Chenowyth wants us all to think that it is.
“Emotional support dog”?
That, all by itself, tells any thinking person all that they need to know.
And as a side note, the bar for celebrity status is amazingly low these days. If no more than 5% of the population knows your name, you are not a celebrity.
She wants to take her purse dog on a plane so she can nanny-nanny-boo-boo everyone who can’t have one and sing her favorite song:
“Look what I have and you don’t, and you don’t, and you don’t...”
I need to smoke my emotional support cigar on the plane.
