Why do some celebrities think they are so special?

Apparantly, his entourage (of 30) tried to get into the 'First Class Lounge' (presumably Terraces) at LHR T1 - only Snoop and 2 others were on first class tickets. So it does indeed come down to:

Why!! It sounds like he acted like a jackass, so he should be treated like one.

Because he's a f*#@ing thug.

Especially with a name like Calvin Broadus. Can we leave him there in England... well maybe not... I don't dislike the English like that. Maybe France though  scratchchin

Good call. Maybe they can strap him to the undercarrige of the Chunnell train.

I hope they don't! Nobody has the right to behave like that. People in the public eye should know better.

And you know that why? By all accounts, he is a family man and good guy. I am betting that this whole fracas was started when one of the racially profiling security idiots at Heathrow tried something with one of his guards.

Slightly unfounded claim, or not?

Just conjecture. Rightly or wrongly, this often happens with celebrity entourages that have bodyguards. Someone touches someone else the wrong way and all hell breaks loose. And my claim about profiling at Heathrow is founded on my own experience.

I've got to stick up for N1120A here guys as I would concur with him. Snoop, despite his past gang life and continued pot usage, is a pretty good guy and gives a lot back to his community. Does he hang out with some unsavory types? Yeah, porbably. Has he reformed his gang ways? yeah, he has. Does he care about his kids and take care of them? Absolutely.

I have a feeling that most likely someone in his entourage caused the issue and it ended up getting out of hand and he got involved. I have to ask what in the world he needs with an entourage of 30 people but that is the hip hop culture and I'll never completely understand it.

I would have loved to have been there to here the Brits completely confused bu "Fooshizzle my Nizzle, y'all. These bobbies ain't sheet but hoes and tricks!"

There have been numerous news items about his coaching of his son's Pop Warner football team as well as the fact that he and his wife actually reconciled as opposed to divorcing.

From Reuters:

A British Airways spokesman told the Daily Mirror: "There was an incident involving a group of passengers at our lounge where some passengers were rude and abusive to our staff and that is something we do not tolerate."

And quite rightly so!

True. And I applaud that, except for the fact that he "loaded" his son's teams with all the talant in the league, which he formed himself so he could make all the rules to his favor. I guess you missed that part of the reports....  

And even with his attempt at the the good deeds, it still does not over-shadow the fact that there have been many other news reports of his "less than family-man" ways.

IMO, he's a thug.

The league bears his name, but is actually run by a Florida group called Access Sports and Entertainment. As far as him "loading" his son's teams, you know that is bollocks.

You said that, not me. I don't like him for his gang activities, disrespect for authority, and using his "celebrity" status for gain and/or special treatment.

Gang activities? You mean when he was a teenager? He is 33 years old now and way past that.

Like it or not, all celebrities get special treatment and financial and social gain from their status. In some cases, the special treatment is actually warranted, given the security issues that go along with being a celebrity

I'll give you that. It does seem that his gang activities are in fact behind him, and he is promoting a better upbringing for kids now with his efforts towards the football stuff, but it still doesn't let him off the hook for his, and his entorage's actions at LHR. (even though we don't know what really happened yet, it does appear that he is the cause)

They should have booked the whole lot of them into Heathrow Police Station.

Pathetic. An "entourage" (oh please, it was a mob) of individuals with no manners or any dignity who when not being able to accept rules smashed bottles of alcohol instead as presumably a show of strength and itimidation? Oh please (!)

It's a shame society doesn't punish more harshly such people.
