Delta Dumps On Slash During A Flight From Minnesota To LAX
It was sad and gross times for Slash and the rest of the passengers on a Delta flight last evening when a toilet backed up in the air, according to TMZ. Slash had been traveling from Serbia and was on the final flight of the journey from Minnesota to LAX when the plane detoured to Salt Lake City to fix the funk.
Reportedly, flight attendants stood watch by the door and asked people to refrain in addition to stopped drink service in an effort to decrease the potential flow.
When Slash finally arrived in L.A., he was in relatively good spirits about the whole thing -- and tweeted, "Left Serbia 8am, just arrived in LA, 10:30pm. Delays, broken toilets, u name it. Gotta love Delta." We're told passengers each received a $100 voucher for their troubles.
