Arrow star Stephen Amell has clarified on the reports that suggested he was forcibly removed from a Delta flight.
On Monday, it was reported that Arrow star Stephen Amell was forcibly removed from a 3 P.M Delta flight from Austin to Los Angeles for getting into a verbal altercation with his wife, Cassandra Jean. TMZ reported that Amell appeared intoxicated. The source also mentions how a flight attendant asked him multiple times to lower his voice but those pleas fell on deaf ears. Eventually, an air marshall and 3 attendants “forcibly removed” the Arrow star from the flight. His wife later flew back to Los Angeles on the same flight. It’s unclear if Amell was detained or arrested after he was removed from the flight.
Taking to Twitter, Stephen Amell cleared up the report that suggested he was “forcibly removed”, stating that he left on his volition. The Arrow star also clarified that when he was asked to lower his voice, he did. As to why he wasn’t on the flight home with his wife, he revealed that he was asked to leave the plane despite lowering his voice.
I rebooked myself on a Southwest flight 2 hours later and traveled home without any further issue. I let my emotions get the better of me, end of story. Must be a slow news cycle.
