American Airlines Passenger Threatens Defamation Lawsuit

Published

on

(TMZ) — Wendi Williams, the woman whose reclined seat was repeatedly punched by a passenger on an American Airlines flight, is ready to pick another fight … this time with the airline!!!

Wendi tells us she met with an attorney Friday to discuss legal options she can take against AA … and she’s threatening the airline with a defamation lawsuit!

Williams is bristling over what an American Airlines rep told TMZ — that the whole seat-reclining incident started when she first reclined and knocked over the other passenger’s drink. Wendi claims it never happened. BTW, even if she did, it would have been an accident and no big deal.

She believes she was slandered when AA accused her of being disruptive, spilling a drink and also all the things that the flight attendant said to her on the plane — that she was the bad person in the dispute — all defamatory, Williams says. BUT … she’s not interested in suing the passenger, although she’s told us she’d like to see him prosecuted for assault.

Wendi also claims she was respectful to everyone else on the plane and didn’t make a scene. Remember, she previously told us a flight attendant handed her a passenger disturbance notice for refusing to delete her video of the man behind her punching her chair.

As for the reclining-seat debate … Wendi says the airlines should be the ones determining if it’s an issue, not fellow passengers.

Wendi’s also got another threat for AA … telling us, “They have pushed me way too far, literally and figuratively.” Them’s fighting words … as in lawsuit.

AA’s drawing its own line in the sand … a source at the airline tells us Wendi reached out Tuesday asking for compensation, but she won’t see any money because AA sees this as a passenger vs. passenger dispute.

We’re also told AA won’t be referring the incident to authorities, and it’s up to Wendi if she wants to go down that road.Play video content

As we previously reported … Wendi is worried the repeated whiplash from the seat punches may have damaged her vertebrae — she says she has a medical history — and she wants AA to fork over some money to pay for an MRI and possible medical bills.

White House Gift Shop Selling Coronavirus Commemorative Coins

White House Gift Shop Selling Coronavirus Commemorative Coins

WASHINGTON, DC (TMZ) — The White House Gift Shop is hawking some odd memorabilia … a coronavirus commemorative coin no one asked for.

The COVID-19 coin features the names of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence … and it depicts an empty presidential podium on one side, and a graphic of the novel coronavirus above the world on the other side.

The coin also shouts out the rest of the COVID-19 task force … with smaller printed names for Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Surgeon General Dr. Jerome AdamsDr. Deborah Birx and Dr. Anthony Fauci.

The collector’s item is emblazoned with tons of slogans … including “Together We FOUGHT The UNSEEN Enemy,” “Everday HEROES Suited Up,” and “Everyday CITIZENS Did Their Part.”

The White House Gift Shop is already taking pre-orders for the coin … and the price is slashed from $125 down to $100. The store, which is privately run and only loosely related to the actual White House, claims proceeds will be donated to hospitals.

The COVID-19 coin is the 11th in the gift shop’s “Historic Moments” collection, which also commemorates Trump’s meetings with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

So, at least the coronavirus coin is in … good company.

Men's Clothing Store in WeHo Suggests Face Coverings the Next Hot Accessory

WEST HOLLYWOOD (TMZ) — Masks … so hot right now, so make sure you get one that makes ya look good out there in the middle of a global pandemic.

That’s what a trendy menswear store in West Hollywood seems to be suggesting with its display of mannequin men sporting face coverings in the front window of the shop.

Check it out … all the plastic models at Klein Epstein & Parker are wearing fashionable face masks that appear to have been made out of stylish pocket squares or a similar material.

So, it begs the question … is this the next new accessory, whether it’s required where you live or not?

As we reported … cities in California, New York, Maryland and others are now requiring citizens to wear masks or face coverings out in public at essential businesses.

Even dogs and cats are getting in on the action to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Fashionable Face Masks

This might seem like another fashion fad, but fact is, until there’s a vaccine … the novel coronavirus is here to stay. That means stylish face coverings will be too.

Topless, Pissed Off Woman Smashes Plates at Denny’s Until Cops Arrive

Topless, Pissed Off Woman Smashes Plates at Denny's Until Cops Arrive

FLORIDA (TMZ) — No mooning over Miami — this half-naked woman was topless — but she did serve up her own version of a Grand Slam … destroying at least 100 plates in a SoCal Denny’s.

The topless woman was caught on video Thursday around 11:20 AM grabbing plates from a large stack in the seating area of the Hawthorne, CA restaurant … and smashing the hell out of them.

Her rampage went on for at least a couple minutes as patrons and employees yelled for her to stop. Her only reply was, “Shut the f*** up, man” — and then quickly back to the bang-up work at hand.

Police showed up while she was still in the middle of her plate-chucking riot, and eventually controlled the situation and detained the woman.

Cops tell us they’d gotten a call about a woman at a bus stop taking her clothes off, and arguing with people before making her way into the Denny’s.

We’re told she was detained and will undergo a mental evaluation — cops believe she was under the influence of something.

BTW, the Denny’s is closed for regular dining due to the coronavirus, but still open for online order pickups — which, luckily, don’t require plates.
