Family kicked off flight after complaining about the in-flight movie being too sexually explicit

I love it. These parents think everyone should kowtow to their snowflakes. Those kids wouldn't even know what was going on. Kids don't have dirty minds, adults do.

Shit. Does this mean that from now on the only thing as flight entertainment will be kiddie shows like the Teletubbies?

LOL the article says the movie was rated "T" in the United States.

LOL! Stupid Brits.

There is already a thread on this.

The complaint was not that the movie was too sexually explicit -- believe me, even if they show slasher movies and films that have an on-screen body count upwards of 200 in-flight, no airline will show a tit.

The parents considered the film too violent, which it probably was, since violence is treated far more cavalierly than something as healthy as sex in popular movies.

Making an emergency landing because someone made a verbal complaint is just bizarre... that must have cost the airline a bundle. Something is missing in this tellingt.

Anyway, I didn't realize mainstream US airlines still had drop-down center-aisle movie screens. The last airline I flew that had those was Lot Polish Airways, and the kid in my row said "Where's my screen? I've never seen big screen like that in a plane before!".

Well I would be pissed off if the in flight movie was Alex Cross- it got a 21% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Tyler Perry and Ed Burns? Pee-yew. I think they could have chosen something more appropriate; it doesn't need to be a kid's film but there are plenty of films that don't have adult themes and violence in them.

Wasn't it a Tyler Perry movie? However it was shut down is a good thing.

The pilot landed in Chicago due to "security concerns." That really sounds strange. It wasn't a family of four thugs. Two were little kids.

I am glad the airlines do this. These helicopter parents don't FUCK with the airlines. Pilots have big enough egos as it is!

Probably, some freaked out flight attendant got on the phone, exclaiming dramatically to the cockpit: "Guys ... we have a SIT-U-ATION going on!"

I love the Teletubbies :)

R3 - I believe I have seen those screens on some Delta aircraft not all that long ago.

It is rated PG 13.

What kind of person thinks they can tell an entire plane full of people that they cannot continue watching a movie because they would prefer that their children not see it. Or that they have a right to talk to the pilot mid-flight.

In-flight movies are not a secret. If they were so sensitive they should have asked what it was going to be when they booked their flight.

I wish it had occurred to me to have the flight rerouted when that hideous piece of shit showed up on the screen. Christ Almighty.

I really think the airlines should have the legal power to throw passengers over board in incidents like these, without landing. They could technically modify the planes for this.

WTF is the world coming to?

How long can it be before some Haus Frau demands the plane land so some peanut eating passenger can be removed from the flight, because the Fraus spawn is allergic to peanuts.

You know it is going to happen.

It probably already has happened.
