Actors Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are responding to the backlash they received about an experience the couple reported at Logan Airport Instagram Last month.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard spent $600 to create a “home” on Logan Airport soil
Bell of “Veronica Mars” and Shepard, known for roles like “Idiocracy,” shared the public’s reaction to their Instagram posts about a 9-hour flight delay in a recent episode of Shepard’s “Armchair Expert” podcast.
“I think I was confused when I saw these really angry comments on my post because I can’t figure out what makes anyone angry about this story,” Shepard said during the podcast.
The celebrity couple documented their July flight delay in Logan on Instagram. The couple and their two children made “quite a home” for themselves at the airport, Bell said on Instagram, spending $600 on makeshift beds before being kicked out by airport staff around midnight.
The family ended up staying the night at a friend’s nearby because there weren’t any available hotels within a 50-mile radius of Boston, Bell said.
Commentators were quick to question whether the celeb’s struggles were serious.
“I really don’t mean that in a mean way, but I didn’t think this would happen to rich people,” one comment read.
“A lot of people just go on the internet and they’re like, ‘Dude, what should I google?’ And they just google angry, crazy stuff. You want to be angry about something,” Bell replied.
“It was so hostile and angry that I thought, ‘This must be part of the political divide,'” Shepard said. “We just kind of have to represent the Liberals. And no matter what we would do, it would be proof that we are crazy or stupid.”
