Actress Andie MacDowell and her dog were booted from first class on an American Airlines flight and when she complained about it on Twitter she got little sympathy.
The actress, best known for the movies "Groundhog Day" and most recently "Magic Mike XXL," complained that she was moved from her first class seat in Charlotte, North Carolina, by a "rude" American Airlines attendant because of her dog, "Ava Gardner," according to E! News
American Airlines allows pets to travel with their owners in cabin as a "carry-on" if the pet meets certain age, size and health requirements and if they stay in their carrier under the seat in front of the owner.
MacDowell was moved because her first class seat, 1A, didn't have a place under a seat for her dog, said E News!, but that context was missing when she tweeted out her first message about being uprooted from first class.
Some on Twitter took exception to MacDowell's post.
McDowell apologized for the post when a Twitter user pointed out that her original posting sounding elitist. She said, according to People
, that her beef was with American Airlines for not making accommodations for what she paid for, not for sitting with the passengers in coach.
The actress tweeted that she learned her lesson about complaining on social media.
