Getting removed from any public establishment tends to be a bit embarrassing, but the worst place to be "escorted out" may be from an airplane. In such a small space, there's no way your scene will go un-seen. Earlier this week, Tiana Fough was taken off of an American Airlines flight against her will for supposedly ignoring a crew member after being asked to move from the aisle repeatedly. The passenger behind her managed to capture a good part of the exchange on video (above).

Although the first misunderstanding wasn't caught on tape, it's obvious there was some confusion. After having a new crew member come and remove her, Fough can be seen crying and attempting to explain the situation to the attendant removing her. Passengers around her begin to share their outrage for the situation, eventually booing the crew as Fough walks off the airplane. American Airlines has since apologized for the situation. Check out the video above.
