According to Selter's Twitter feed, moments after her conversation with the people who appeared to be a pilot and flight attendant, she was approached by men in uniform who told Selter she needs to get off the plane.

Selter and her sibling were on a flight from Miami to New York City on Saturday night.

24-year-old Selter tweeted videos of herself getting kicked off the American Airlines flight at Miami International Airport over the weekend.

Selter refused to comply, allegedly arguing that there where two other passengers standing in line for the restroom. Later, she wrote of her experience, "Just like that, five cops coming at me".

A flight attendant ordered her to sit, and the two reportedly began a verbal confrontation.

They said the airline "offered her hotel accomodations and transportation, which she declined", adding that Selter "flew on American Sunday morning back to NY".

The videos Selter shot and posted on Twitter show the confrontation between Selter and American Airlines crew members, as another passenger comes to Selter's defense.

Selter later took another flight with the carrier to NY.

As the argument ensued, a co-passenger - whose face is not visible in the clips - even piped in, yelling "you are harassing her", while the model is confronted by the official. It is unclear if the fellow passenger was traveling with her or not.

The fitness blogger then recorded as multiple law enforcement officials stood waiting for her to exit the plane.

"I was obviously being sarcastic ma'am", Selter says in the video.

Social media Influencer Jen Selter has almost 12 million Instagram followers. She apparently said "yes" when the crew member asked her if she wants to get off the plane.

Instagram fitness model Jen Selter shared a turbulent series of videos on social media on Saturday after she was removed from a delayed flight.

She shared a video having left the plane, captioned: "I did nothing wrong but got kicked off the plane".

Jen has not addressed the incident on her Twitter since posting the videos, but did say in a statement to Page Six that the experience was "humiliating". "American offered her hotel accommodations and transportation, which she declined".

Selter told the New York Post, "They made me feel like a bad person, and I did nothing wrong".
