Public Slams Kelly Rowland For Qantas Fight

16 April 2010

Kelly Rowland has been berated by the Australian public today after an incident with the cabin crew on her Qantas flight from Melbourne to Sydney.

The former Destiny's Child star apparently cracked it at the flight attendants as she got off her QF430 flight from Melbourne yesterday afternoon following Wednesday night's performance at Supafest.

Kelly accused the staff of treating her and her entourage like children and labelled the service on the Qantas flight "shitty".

"I found the flight attendants really shitty. I don't know why -- you tell me," Kelly said.

They were very rude to us. That's the first time you'll ever hear me say a curse word. They were just rude to us on the plane. They treated us like five-year-old kids."

It's not known what caused the incident but there is speculation that some passengers were using mobile phones on the flight and some were sitting in the wrong seats.

No doubt this was just a hiccup for the normally pleasant Rowland, who had even said that every other time she's flown Qantas "it's always been fantastic."

Kelly is in Australia touring for the Supafest urban music festival alongside Akon, Pitbull, Jay Sean and more.

So who's side are you on? Was Kelly right to crack it or should she have handled the situation differently?

I know Kelly wouldn't do something that bad. If she said that they treated her ****ty then I agree.
