‘Arrow’ Star Stephen Amell Opens Up About Unruly Passenger Incident on Flight
2nd September 2021

Arrow star Stephen Amell has opened up about being removed from a flight earlier this year, admitting that he feels “very ashamed” of the incident.

Amell, who is currently starring in new drama Heels, was asked to disembark a Delta flight from Austin to Los Angeles in June, with the airline confirming at the time that “an unruly customer” had caused an eight-minute delay to take-off.

Shortly after the news broke, Amell released a statement saying that he and his wife Cassandra Jean had gotten into an “argument”, which led to the actor being asked to leave the plane. “I let my emotions get the better of me, end of story,” he said.

Now, three months on, the Arrowverse hero has told Michael Rosenbaum’s Inside of You podcast that the incident was “100 percent” his fault and that he is “deeply ashamed” of what happened (via ET).

“I was pissed off about something else that had nothing to do with Cass, my wife, and I picked a fight,” he explained. “I picked a fight because I wanted to be loud and upset.”

Amell went on to add that there was no argument. “In order to have an argument, two people have to be talking,” he continued. “My wife said one thing the entire time, which was, ‘If you don’t lower your voice, they’re going to ask you to get off the plane.'”

Reflecting on his behavior, the Heels star said that he found it “really, really shameful”. As for how he’s learned from the incident, Amell added: “I just realized a couple of things: if people are going to recognize you, don’t necessarily drink in a public place, but more importantly, don’t drink in a public place if you can’t handle your shit.

“Ultimately, I’m very ashamed of it [and] trying to make amends for it, specifically with my wife.”
