Russell Crowe Slams Virgin Australia After Refusing to Let Him Check His Hoverboard as Luggage

Russell Crowe was not pleased with Virgin Australia Airline after not allowing his son’s hoverboard to be checked as luggage.

“Ridiculous @VirginAustralia. No Segway boards as luggage? Too late to tell us at airport.Kids and I offloaded. Goodbye Virgin. Never again,” the 51-year-old actor tweeted from the airport.

“.@VirginAustralia I’m awaiting your reply, where is your duty of responsibility in this? Why not tell me when I am booking my ticket?” Russell added later. He then replied to a fan who ticked him off!

    It should have been disclosed on their website especially if a ‘new’ policy. That said, I’d never say never if I was Rusty, he’ll only (eventually) have to eat his words. So whom did he hurt? Virgin Air? No, not really.

    Hover boards are listed on their banned items list: their website says “NOTE: Lithium battery operated small recreational vehicles such as self balancing boards, hover boards, aero wheels are not permitted as checked-in or carry-on baggage on Virgin Australia aircraft.”

    So the man wasn’t’ up on his game, or thought his status might encourage them to make an exception? See, he really should have simply not brought it or bought it there. Shame, now Crowe has egg on his scuff.

    Aren’t those boards dangerous and possibly explosive?? Hell no he shouldn’t be allowed on board.

    So if the batteries blew up, who do we think he’d be tweeting? That is if the plane could land and get everyone off safely.

    I guess he hasn’t been paying attention to the news. Are we going to see a post in a couple of days about how he’s at the ER with his son who broke his wrist or arm and sending out tweets to the segway board hover people about their crappy product.
