Savannah Chrisley blamed her impatience for being kicked off a Southwest flight last month.
On Tuesday’s episode of her podcast, “Unlocked,” the 25-year-old “Chrisley Knows Best” alum elaborated on the incident.
Chrisley explained that she had gotten into a verbal altercation with an employee after he told her that she would have to check her bag because there was no room left on top.
The reality star refused, telling him she’d like to see for herself first, before calling him “a jerk.”
After insulting him, she proceeded to be kicked off the plane. However, she tried to rectify the situation by apologizing.
She said: “I told the assistant, ‘You know what? We all have difficult days. You’re clearly in the mood. I’m in the mood I apologize. I shouldn’t have called you an idiot. Let’s check my bag.
But it was too late, and the clerk still wouldn’t let him board.
Savannah noted that she had lost her cool because she wanted to go home to her 10-year-old niece, Chloe, who she recently gained custody of. Her parents, Todd and Julie Chrisley, originally had custody before they were sentenced to a combined 19 years in prison for tax evasion and fraud.
He explained that the situation made him not be his “most patient self” and called the employee “a jerk” again.
Despite admitting she was late to board the plane and asked that an exception be made for her bag, Savannah said she doesn’t feel like she’s “better than anyone.”
“I don’t think it’s better than not having to check my bags,” he said. “All I asked was let me see if there was room because we’ve all been on a plane before. [where] some people just don’t play Tetris that well, and there’s a lot of wasted space.”
