Stephen Amell has spoken out following the news that he was removed from a flight following a public fight with his wife, Cassandra Jean Amell.
The reports stated that Amell was removed from a flight before departure on Monday after getting into an altercation with his wife. The Arrow star took to social media on Wednesday morning to set the record straight and give his side of the story.
“My wife and I got into an argument Monday afternoon on a Delta flight from Austin to LA,” he began. “I was asked to lower my voice and I did. Approximately 10 minutes later I was asked to leave the flight. And I did so immediately. I was not forcibly removed.”
Stephen continued his statement in a second tweet, “I rebooked myself on a Southwest flight 2 hours later and traveled home without any further issue. I let my emotions get the better of me, end of story. Must be a slow news cycle.”
The news was first reported by Page Six who revealed that Stephen was allegedly yelling at his wife. According to their report, he ignored a flight attendant’s requests to calm down and was eventually escorted off the plane by several flight attendants and an air marshal.
Delta also spoke out about the incident to PEOPLE: “Delta flight 966 on June 21 took a brief, eight-minute departure delay after an unruly customer was deplaned from the aircraft prior to departure in Austin. The flight arrived ahead of schedule at Los Angeles International Airport.”
