(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.
