[News]: Woman Kicked Off Flight for Singing Whitney Houston Nonstop

This is an American Airlines flight, not a damn karaoke bar! 

One passenger learned this lesson the hard way, when she was removed from a cross-country domestic flight after she would not stop singing Whitney Houston's 1991 hit "I Will Always Love You" (or Dolly Parton's 1974 original "I Will Always Love You." It's hard to decipher to nuances of her performance as she was being dragged off the plane.)

The six-hour flight from Los Angeles to New York was forced to make an emergency landing in Kansas City in order to eject the Whitney Houston of her generation of coach.

Despite an American Airlines staff member repeatedly claiming, "You cannot take pictures on the airplane," one passenger was able to capture a portion of the incident on camera. (Sidebar: If you can't take pictures on an airplane, then how are there so many Instagrams of plane wings taking off?! Maybe photography on planes should be banned.)

"The woman was being disruptive and was removed from the plane for interfering with the flight crew," Kansas City International Airport spokesman Joe McBride explained.
"There was a federal air marshal on the aircraft, who subdued the woman and put her in cuffs and removed her from the plane," he continued, describing a scene from the Bridesmaids sequel or an SNL sketch written one week too late (Kristen Wiig hosted last Saturday).

The woman was later released without any charges. Except possibly that she should take some singing lessons and audition again next year. Whitney Houston is tough to take on, maybe try a song better suited to your range. It was a little pitchy, dawg.
She was not allowed to continue on American Airlines to her final destination, though. It is unclear whether she found another airline to accommodate her special needs (first boarding, children and wheelchairs; second boarding, one woman Whitney Houston cover bands) or if she is still in Kansas, still singing "I Will Always Love You."

The woman reportedly claimed the incident occurred because she is diabetic. Now you know: if you find yourself unable to stop singing, you don't need to WebMD it. You're diabetic
