But it appears she was not able to use her influence to diffuse a hostile situation aboard a New York-bound American Airlines plane while travelling with her sister at the weekend, upon which a big argument with cabin crew erupted. She apparently said "yes" when the crew member asked her if she wants to get off the plane.

A new video shows a social media star being kicked off a flight headed for NY after a heated argument.

Cops then yanked Selter, her sister and another passenger off the plane.

"I didn't do anything wrong", she protests as the pilot says his staff had been asking for her to be removed.

Setler later asserted that she was being sarcastic when she confirmed that she wanted to be taken off the flight.

The attendant, however, contacted the pilot who called police to escort Selter off the flight.

Another passenger can be heard speaking in Selter's defense, accusing the flight crew of "harassing her".

In one of the videos posted on Selter's Twitter account, a police officer can be heard saying; "American Airlines calls the shots".

Selter, who boasts an 11 million plus Instagram followership, was on a delayed flight from Miami to NY on Saturday (27 January) when the row took place.

"She flew on American Sunday morning back to New York (LGA) - arriving around 8:30 a.m. ET yesterday morning". I've seen cops come onto flights.

"I did nothing wrong but got kicked off the plane", she tweeted.

A spokesperson for the airline said: "Ms. Selter was asked to leave the aircraft after a disagreement occurred Saturday night at Miami International Airport (MIA)".

Jen has not addressed the incident on her Twitter since posting the videos, but did say in a statement to Page Six that the experience was "humiliating".

The model did tell the Washington Post however, that she would "never ever fly American Airlines again".

Responding to the allegations, airlines authorities claimed that the model was offered accommodation and transportation but she declined.
