Will.I.Am Launches Twitter Strop At Airline
Pop star left fuming after first class seat given away...
We love a good celebrity strop - and thanks to social media we seem to get more of them than ever before these days.
Will.I.Am is the latest star to oblige us with an A-grade diva tantrum after an airline gave away his first class seat.

The Black Eyed Peas star and The Voice coach took to Twitter to tear a strip off of United Airlines after the carrier offered his seat on the flight from NYC to China to another passenger when he arrived 45 minutes before take-off.
Still fuming in the departure lounge, he tweeted: "Make sure when you fly to china via @united you get to the airport 1day before because they'll give your seats away.
"Plane leave at 1:15 I got to the airport at 12:30... @united is the worse...I should have learned from the last @united experience.
"@united I'm sitting in the airport ready to fly to china for a business meeting & i want to thank you so much for giving my seat away..."
He also insisted that other airlines he's used in the past "wait for premium passengers to arrive".
