>> Read more trending news

Alexis Armstrong, 24, filmed part of the incident on her cellphone. The video showed attendants telling a couple and their 2-year-old daughter to leave after the child had insisted on sitting in her father’s lap, WGN reported. The father said the girl had calmed down and there was no need to leave, but one of the attendants said “The decision has been made."

Armstrong, who was sitting a row back and across the aisle from the family, told WGN she did not think the family should have been kicked off the plane.

In a statement, Southwest said the conversation “escalated” between the crew and the customer.

“We always aim for a welcoming and hospitable experience and regret the inconvenience to all involved,” Southwest said in the statement. “The traveling party was booked on the next flight to Atlanta after the original flight continued as planned.”

A girl named Sydney was trying on a gown and sent a photo of herself in it to Tony Wood by mistake. Wood’s a dad of six and instead of either ignoring the message or sending a bland “wrong number,” he and five of his children sent the girl a thumbs up, telling her to go with the gown, WZTV reported.

The photos and messages went viral and got the attention of hundreds of thousands of people.

Two people were missing: Wood’s wife and their son Kaizler.

Kaizler has leukemia, and Wood’s wife was at the hospital with him, WZTV reported.

Once strangers found out why the family was missing two members, they jumped into action and started donating to the Woods’ GoFundMe page set up to help pay for Kaizler’s treatments, WZTV reported.

‘Elsa’ in drag helps out Boston’s finest; frees the police from snowbank

The big-screen version of Elsa has nothing on Boston’s version.

A man dressed in drag as Elsa took to the streets of Beantown and actually helped police when they got their police wagon stuck in a South End snowbank this week, People magazine reported

In blue dress and silver wig, the Elsa in disguise was actually identified as Jason Triplett, a Boston attorney who braved the cold -- because you know, the cold doesn’t bother Elsa anyway -- because of cabin fever brought on by the city’s latest winter wallop, People reported.

The video has since gone viral with millions of view on Facebook.

Triplett told People magazine of his newfound fame that he figured it would be over soon, saying, “But if this is my 15 minutes, I would like to leverage it to meet [Olympic figure skater and bronze medal winner] Adam Rippon.”

He told WTIC that he bought the costume last year because he thought it would be funny to walk around the city dressed as Elsa. 

“I saw the police [transport vehicle] started to get stuck and so I just ran outside to help push it out of the snow,” Triplett told WTIC. “I really didn’t think it would be a thing.”

Teen dies after sinus infection travels to brain, family says

A Flint, Michigan, family is mourning the loss of a 13-year-old after they said a sinus infection traveled to his brain.

WNEM reported that, according to a relative named Peggy Gilbert, Marquel Brantley went to an urgent care clinic about four weeks ago and was diagnosed with a “viral infection.” According to Gilbert, the teen was told the infection would “run its course.”

Marquel developed multiple migraines and visited the emergency room multiple times as a result, Gilbert said.

According to Gilbert, Marquel was given an MRI at the hospital a week ago.

Marquel’s aunt, Nicole Alexander, told WJRT on Monday that doctors said the infection traveled to her nephew’s brain.

“The doctor came in and said, ‘He has a sinus infection. It has penetrated through the bone into the blood vessels in the brain and we see some blood clots,’” said his aunt, Nicole Alexander.

Gilbert said Marquel had two strokes and went to an Ann Arbor, Michigan, hospital for surgery.

“It takes a long time to get blood clots to shrink and the blood clots were putting too much pressure on the brain and he couldn’t get proper oxygen to his brain,” Alexander said.

The eighth-grader died Sunday.

"He was my favorite person. Now, he’s not gonna be here anymore,” Marquel’s sister Alexandria Brumley said, according to WNEM. “I feel like it's not real. I feel like he's gonna come back. But I know he’s not gonna come back.”

Gilbert set up a GoFundMe page to help Marquel’s family with expenses. It has raised more than $5,000 of its $10,000 goal.

Students, parents, teachers encourage each other to ‘Walk Up Not Out’

While students across the country are taking a stand against school violence by walking out of class Wednesday, some are trying to shed a positive light, and rather focus on the students who could be considered outcasts to prevent violence before it happens.

That’s the idea behind the movement “Walk Up Not Out,” a suggestion made by a Maryland mother in a viral Facebook post, The Carroll County Times reported.

>> Read more trending news 

Kelly Guest of Hamstead, Maryland, wrote on social media two weeks after the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, “Instead of walking out of school on March 14, encourage students to walk up -- walk up to the kid who sits alone at lunch and invite him to sit with your group...”

Her post had nearly 70,000 shares on Facebook alone and started the hashtag #walkupnotout.

>>Photos: Remembering Parkland Florida school shooting victims

Guest’s message quickly spread on other platforms like Twitter challenging everyone to be kind, the Indy Star reported.

Guest told the Carroll County Times that her idea of the walk up came after a CNN program in which the students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School spoke to lawmakers, law enforcement and an NRA spokesperson.

She said that while the students were passionate about their stand against guns and violence, the discussion broke down because of disrespect, that students need to be heard, but also adult leaders should also have their viewpoints considered.

>>Florida school shooting timeline: Seven minutes, three floors and 17 dead

“Not saying that political officials always have wisdom ... but it has to be a two-way dialog,” Guest told the paper.

She also said that she believes that some of today’s planned walkouts have lost the focus of their original intent of remembering the victims of the Parkland shooting and taking a stand against violence.

>>Enough National School Walkout: Live updates

“I’m not sure making something illegal ... will stop these things,” Guest told the Carroll County Times. She added that the move to change the gun laws could give students “a false sense of security.”

Students across the country will use today, the one-month anniversary of the Parkland shooting, to march out of classes, to force lawmakers to change gun laws, CNN reported.

Who is Emma Gonzalez, one of the organizers of the ‘March for Our Lives’ event?

Days after the Valentine’s Day mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., a young woman with a buzz cut stood before television cameras and challenged lawmakers to make MSD the last school to see students killed in its hallways.

The high school senior, Emma Gonzalez, along with calling out state and federal officials for “B.S.,” told those listening that day that “it's time for victims to be the change that we need to see."

>> Read more trending news

Since the Feb. 14 shooting, Gonzalez has followed her own advice, helping to organize a movement to push those who are blocking progress on gun control out of the way. One of the organizers of “March for Our Lives,” a rally set for Washington D.C. on March 24, Gonzalez has said she hopes to get legislation banning assault weapons passed, and that the downfall of the National Rifle Association would make the deaths of the 17 people killed at MSD High School almost “bearable.”

Gonzalez, who was forced to huddle in the school’s auditorium with classmates during the shooting at her school, was part of a nationally televised town hall, has been interviewed and profiled by media around the country, and has become the face of the student movement born out of Parkland.

Here are some things you may not know about Gonzalez.

About Gonzalez:

  • She is 18 and a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
  • She was in the auditorium when mass shooter Nikolas Cruz pulled the fire alarm to draw students and teachers into the hallway and the line of fire.
  • She holed up in the auditorium, searching Google News for updates on the shooting at the school.
  • She gave an 11-minute speech at an anti-gun rally in Fort Lauderdale two days after the shooting.
  • She has two siblings.
  • Her father is an attorney for a cybersecurity company; her mother is a math tutor.González identifies as bisexual. She revealed the fact in an op-ed she wrote for Vogue.
  • She did not cut her hair off because of the shooting. She said it’s hot in Florida and her hair was “just an extra sweater I’m forced to wear.” She said she made a Powerpoint presentation to convince her parents to let her shave her head. “It worked.”
  • She has lived in Parkland her entire life.
  • Her father and members of his family immigrated from Cuba.
  • She is one of the organizers of the upcoming march in Washington D.C.
  • She was set for college in the fall but now says she and other members of the movement “Never Again” will put off college plans for a while.
  • She has 1.2 million followers on Twitter – all since the shooting, she did not have an account on Twitter prior to Feb. 14.


  • “We are going to be the kids you read about in textbooks. Not because we’re going to be another statistic about mass shooting in America, but because … we are going to be the last mass shooting.”That’s going to be Marjory Stoneman Douglas in that textbook and it’s going to be due to the tireless effort of the school board, the faculty members, the family members and most of all the students. The students who are dead, the students still in the hospital, the student now suffering PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), the students who had panic attacks during the vigil because the helicopters would not leave us alone, hovering over the school for 24 hours a day.” 
  • “I didn’t think it would go viral at all,” she said of the speech she gave days after the shooting. “It went so far and so fast. I’ve got celebrities tweeting about me. I wanted people to feel what I was feeling.”
  • “I feel like we’ve been writing these arguments for years,” she said of the movement for stricter gun control. “I utilized the things we’ve been taught. This school is full of people who are old enough to know when they’re being lied to.”
  • “What would make the death(s) bearable is if the NRA was destroyed and if we were the ones to destroy it, at least for me.”
  • “As the days go by, I’m kind of realizing I might not have a choice in that,” she said of going to college in the fall. “Do I have any right to feel like I deserve to go to college?”

Teacher probed for derogatory message to ‘ethnic’ student over stolen mouse

A Louisiana high school teacher is under investigation over allegations that he posted a disturbing in-class message aimed at minority students over a stolen computer mouse.

The message popped up on the whiteboard of a math classroom Thursday at Pickering High School in Leesville. The message began by welcoming students to Room 312.

“To the moronic, self-obsessed ethnic who stole the mouse from the back computer: The fact that you do not know both your parents, and that the so-called adults that are caring for you cannot afford a five-dollar part because they are too busy buying drugs and coring cigars at the Shop-Rite does not change the fact that you are nothing more than a two-bit thief and a waste of carbon and oxygen,” the angry message stated.

The message went viral after a student in the class snapped a photo of the whiteboard and posted it to social media. 

“Only Mr. Perez,” the student, Brittny Taylor, wrote in her Facebook post. 

Pickering High School’s website identifies Perez as math teacher Randy Perez. 

Mike Kay, assistant superintendent for the Vernon Parish School Board, told the Leesville Daily Leader that he was notified of the issue Thursday night.

“I planned to speak to the teacher this morning, but he was out of town,” Kay told the newspaper Friday

Kay, who said that he would reach out to the teacher again Monday morning, told the Daily Leader that the sentiments expressed in the derogatory message do not reflect those of school district officials. 

“This is not in line with our stance, and we will deal with it quickly,” Kay said. 

Superintendent James Williams reiterated Kay’s comments in a statement of his own. 

“The Vernon Parish school system does not condone or support this kind of rhetoric,” Williams told the newspaper. “This in no way shall reflect our sociological and cultural attitude. It is unacceptable and will not be tolerated!”

It was not known Monday afternoon if the district’s investigation had been completed. 

Taylor, a senior at the school, told Buzzfeed News that the message was on Perez’s whiteboard when she walked into class Thursday morning. The teen said Perez did not know who stole the computer mouse, but thought his message was funny.

“When I first walked in, he was walking around the class saying whoever took it is probably on food stamps and welfare,” Taylor said

Some former students and parents alleged that Perez has made similar statements toward students in the past. 

Area residents were divided on the issue. 

“So, this happened at Pickering High School,” a man named John Putnam wrote. “Doesn’t seem very professional. But does sound like Pickering.”

Several former students stood up for Perez, who they said was bullied and made fun of by their classmates. 

“When I went to Pickering High during my senior year, Mr. Perez was a really nice guy,” Aaron Kristopher Nicholas wrote on Facebook. “He always got bullied and people constantly made fun of him. But he did his best and he was nice to me and to many other students.”

Nicholas said he does not justify the message on the whiteboard, but said students should not have stolen from the teacher. 

“If this upsets somebody, then they need to get over it,” the former student wrote.

Another former Pickering student, Jordan McKenzie Wells, wrote that Perez is one of the best teachers at the school. 

“Since everyone wants to talk about the negative, as always, here is some positive,” Wells wrote. “When the guys didn’t shave their facial hair, he has extra razors and shaving cream so they wouldn’t be sent home. On occasions, he let us take our math tests home and finish it.”

Wells wrote that Perez also cooked for his students almost every Friday and tossed them candy and fruit as rewards for participation in class. She said he would get angry at students acting up in class, but said it was because “(they) started it.”

“We didn’t cry to Facebook or our parents that our math teacher yelled at us and called us kindergartners,” Wells wrote. “Because we knew that’s how we were acting.”

Perez did not respond to a request for comment from Buzzfeed News.

The Belles’ dance was the highest scoring novelty dance that day at the contest.

The team also won grand champion in the super division for both team and officer dances, plus a sweep in each category entered.

Calaway told KLTV the girls deserve all the attention they’re getting.

The Belles are headed to Galveston, Texas, later this month to compete in the Showtime International competition.

Richard Sherman reportedly agrees to contract with 49ers

Former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has agreed to a three-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

>> Read more trending news

Sherman's three year contract will pay him $39 million with a $5 million signing bonus, according to Ian Rappaport of the NFL Network.

Sherman was officially released by the Seahawks on Friday, telling Josina Anderson of ESPN that the 49ers, Titans, Lions, Raiders, Texans, Buccaneers and Packers were among the teams that had shown interest in him.

Sherman suffered a torn right Achilles in a November road win over the Arizona Cardinals, ending his season early. 

Sherman is one of the more outspoken players in the NFL both in and out of games. For Seahwaks fans, Sherman has sparked a wide variety of headlines since joining the team in 2011. 

>> Related: 17 of Richard Sherman's most memorable quotes

He's had sideline outbursts. He's gone viral for dressing up as Harry Potter at news conferences.He's threatened to ruin the career of a reporter. He's given back to the community in big ways, like by hosting his celebrity softball game. And he's contributed to big Seahawk victories, like getting to the Super Bowl twice.

"I think Richard Sherman is one of the best teammates I could ever ask for,” quarterback Russell Wilson told KIRO 7 last summer. “I think he’s going to be a Hall of Fame cornerback as well. I’m glad he’s on our team.”

San Francisco 49ers fans are very familiar with Sherman’s outbursts, and will remember his criticism of then-49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree after the Seahawks won the 2013 NFC Championship. 

After tipping a Colin Kaepernick pass in the end zone to Malcolm Smith and to seal the game, Sherman told Erin Andrews of FOX, “Well, I’m the best corner in the game! When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that’s the result you gonna get! Don’t you EVER talk about me. … Don’t you open your mouth about the best. Or I’m gonna shut it for you real quick. L-O-B.”

A fifth-round pick out of Stanford in 2011, Sherman has spent all seven of his NFL seasons as a member of the Seahawks and currently ranks fourth in franchise history with 32 interceptions. 

At the NFL Combine in February, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll revealed that Sherman was recovering well from his surgery on his right Achilles, and that he also had a minor procedure done on his left Achilles.

In San Francisco, Sherman will reunite with defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, who was a defensive quality control coach with the Seahawks from 2011 to 2013.

The video shows the exchange of words and at one point the theater manager is heard calling the girls "animals," WPXI reported.

Kelley tells Carter she needs to leave the property but the arguing continues, as she says her children are still inside the theater.

Video then shows Carter being handcuffed and saying, "Get off of me ... what are you doing?!"

In the complaint, Kelley wrote, "She was struggling with me and refused to put her hands behind her back, laying on them and pulling them away from me."

People who have seen the video wonder whether Kelley went too far.

"It was a lot of precautionary measures that he could've took to avoid all that, but he chose the route he did," said Drew White.

While it's unclear what happened immediately before and after the video, Heather Soto of Elizabeth said it shouldn't have ended the way it did.

The theater has fired the manager seen in the video, saying, "We determined that the manager's conduct does not reflect our values, his training, or our policies. This is certainly not the way we treat people."

Carter is facing four misdemeanors including failure to disperse and resisting arrest.

Candidate for governor in Wisconsin breastfeeds daughter in campaign ad

Political candidates have been known to feature family members in their campaign ads, but a woman running for governor in Wisconsin provided a more intimate moment.

>> Read more trending news

Former state Rep. Kelda Helen Roys released her first campaign video, during which she breastfeeds her 4-month-old daughter, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

Roys said the moment was unscripted, and the two-minute video is likely the first time a political candidate has nursed on camera, according to Travis Nelson Ridout, a political science professor at Washington State University.

“That’s definitely something new,” Ridout told the State Journal. “There’s probably an expectation, a hope, that something like this will go viral and get media attention. … It’s so different from what we expect to see in a political ad. Sometimes we do see politicians’ families, but we don’t see something as intimate as breastfeeding in political ads.”

During the video, Roys speaks about her work on legislation that banned children’s sippy cups that contained the chemical bisphenol A. Her family is featured, and at one point her daughter can be heard crying off-camera.

Roys’ husband brings the baby to her and she doesn’t miss a beat, lifting her sweater and beginning to breastfeed while continuing to speak. The camera pans up to her face, the State Journal reported.

“I was right in the middle of talking so they just kept rolling, figuring they would be able to use the sound,” Roys told the State Journal. “They knew the baby was going to be there and they knew I was going to be taking care of the baby sometimes.”

The video was released a day after a statewide poll showed Roys with only 0.3 percent support in the crowded Democratic gubernatorial race, the State Journal reported.

If Roys wins the Democratic primary in August, she will likely face Republican incumbent Scott Walker, who is running for a third term, CNN reported.
