Russell Crowe, a cool and collected dude who only gets mad about things in a cool and collected way, is furious at Virgin Airlines for refusing to allow his sons to pack their hoverboards as luggage. “Theh jus’ fahkin’ huvabahds, mate!”

Page Six reports:

Crowe went off on Twitter on Monday and vowed “never again” to fly Virgin Australia.

“Ridiculous @VirginAustralia,” Crowe raged online. “No Segway boards as luggage? Too late to tell us at airport. Kids and I offloaded. Goodbye Virgin. Never again.”

He went on to ask, “why did you not inform me when I booked my ticket? Where is your duty of responsibility in this?”

Turns out that Virgin Australia alerts everyone of this during check-in:

The airline responded: “Hi Russell, this information is outlined in the Dangerous Goods section in the booking confirmation check in.”

Oh.

Please be nice to Russell, though:

...Crowe’s online rant set up him for mockery from other Twitter users, including Australian Joel Creasey who pointed out, “You’re a millionare (sic), babe. Get some perspective.”

Crowe responded to the funny man: “I’m a father Joel, with two kids at an airport, trying to start our holiday.”

Oh.


I’m sorry—what now? [E! News]


Andrew Hardwick, the former object of Taylor Swift’s affection and subject of “Teardrops on My Guitar,” was arrested in Hendersonville, Tennessee on Sunday and charged with child abuse.

Via Vulture:

Hardwick, 27, his wife, Joni, and Christopher Hardwick (whose relationship to Drew is unclear) were arrested after a 3-year-old girl in their care had to be airlifted to a children’s hospital on December 26 for “severe bruising and lacerations” on her head and a concussion. A 5-year-old girl who was with the 3-year-old at the time of the incident reportedly told a witness that Drew had struck both children in the face.

What a shitbag.
