Kim Kardashian Outs Air Marshal, Endangers Flight?
When it comes to Twitter, Kim Kardashian can't help herself.
On a Tuesday night flight from NYC to L.A., the reality star Tweeted about her seat companion: a U.S. air marshal.
"I'm on the airplane...love wifi," Kardashian, 29, wrote. "I am sitting next to an Air Marshall! Jim the air marshall makes me feel safe!"
Not all of her 3 million-plus Twitter followers were pleased: Air Marshals are intended to remain anonymous in order to ensure the safety of passengers.
"lmao poor Jim the air marshall is going to get fired thanks to you hahahaha," one follower said. Added another: "if he exposed to you that he WAS an air marshall...I would say that was priviledged info that only the crew was suppose[d] to know"
"just don't tweet stuff like that!" one fan begged. "u know better.dear lord u just dont talk abt air marshall's on flights! Its on the DL Kim!!"
"RELAX I just told u guys the Air Marshall is sitting next to me, highly doubt anyone is twittering like me on this flight! shhh," Kardashian tweeted to defend herself.
"Air Marshall's are supposed to keep their identity concealed," she added. "He did! I am just a private eye & assumed, so I asked him & he was honest!"
Her final Tweet of the evening: "OK I hope I don't get in trouble...logging off now! xo."
Afterwards, another follower sniffed: "Doubt he really was an Air Marshall, she was probably just dumb enough to believe him."
