Kristin Chenoweth's Pooch Gets Denied Boarding at DFW

This week another celeb joined the ranks of Kevin Smith, Alec Baldwin, and other stars who claim they've been bullied by a flight crew.

According to TMZ, Kristin Chenoweth was harassed by an American Airlines gate agent as she tried to board a flight from Dallas to L.A. with her dog, which she calls "an emotional support animal", on Tuesday.

Apparently, Kristin was carrying her pup onto the plane when she was confronted by a "verbally abusive" supervisor who said she didn't have the correct paperwork. Eventually - after Kristin burst into tears - airline officials realized they were in the wrong and allowed her to board the flight, with her dog in tow.

Kristin later tweeted, "American Airlines: Dallas flight attnt supervisor Ms. Kidwell. Abuse not okay. #tripfromhell."

A rep at AA told TMZ, "We have been in touch with Ms. Chenoweth to offer our apologies for the misunderstanding. We refunded the [$125] cabin pet charge as soon as we realized the mistake. We hope she will consider flying American again in the future." There's no official word from Kristin about whether or not she is taking them up on their offer but, based on her Tweet, we're thinking the answer in "no".
