(Newser) – If you find the antics of celeb couple Kanye West and Kim Kardashian a little annoying, just imagine how the people on this plane felt: Their American Airlines flight from New York to LA got delayed for an hour yesterday because Kanye and Kim skipped a TSA security checkpoint, the New York Post reports. In fairness, it wasn't entirely their fault. They were running late when a JFK employee escorted them around the checkpoint so they could board quickly. Airport officials heard about it before the flight took off, however, and pulled them off for a patdown, causing the delay. Not even celebs are exempt, apparently.

If this wannabe celeb would've delayed my plane, I'd have dropped him like the bag of dirt he is. And as for the ass kissing boob who walked them around security.........well he probably just got moved to another security station. They better explan to him that "Al Qaeda" is NOT a celebrity.

The passengers were probably thrilled to have Kim and Kanye on the flight and totally unaware of the delay .
