YSL Inadvertently To Blame for Naomi's Airplane Outrage

YSL Inadvertently To Blame for Naomi's Airplane Outrage

>>  Blame it on a misplaced YSL dress.  During Naomi Campbell's trial today, the court heard that her British Airways fit on April 3 was caused by the disappearance of said dress, which Naomi was contracted to wear during a US television appearance. 

So what actually went down that day?  The plane's captain tried to talk to Naomi about her missing baggage, which contained the dress, but she shouted back, "I can't believe you have lost my f*cking bag.  Bring me my f*cking bags now."  She told the captain to go get her missing bag and show it to her.  The captain tried to give her a list of options, but Naomi wouldn't have any of it, snapping: "How dare you tell me what my options are?  You are not leaving until you find my f*cking bags."  When the captain walked away, she shouted after him: ""You are a racist, you wouldn't be doing this if I was white."

Things escalated from there — Naomi refused to leave the plane, yelling, "F*ck you, f*ck you, captain" and "F*ck off, I have paid £5,000 for this.  I have a right to be on this plane."  Finally, three police officers were brought in to escort her from the plane, one of which was subsequently struck on the arm with Naomi's phone and spat on, and another of which was struck in the thigh with Naomi's "formidable" stiletto-heeled boots.  As she was arrested for assault, Naomi shouted, ""You are only doing this because I am black and famous.  It is because I am a black woman.  You are all racists.  I am going to sue you.  I am going to f*ck you.  I am going to sue you like a motherf*cker."

Needless to say, she plead guilty today, and was sentenced to 200 hours of community service, plus a $4,604 fine.  Funnily enough, Naomi's lawyer, Richard Nicholls, said his client was apologetic towards the police officers, but not "quite so sorry about British Airways."  And I have to wonder, if Naomi hadn't had that Fall YSL contract, would this all have even happened?
