I don’t know about you, but I find it kind of soothing to know that celebrities really ARE the same as you and me.
- There was a time when Shaq’s Amex purchase was declined
- And when American Airlines lost Dave Bautista’s luggage
- Or when Air Canada went and rebooked one of the stars of the Harry Potter series of movies
So yep, celebrities can be treated like crap at airports, just like anybody else.
Of course, sometimes it’s the celebs’ response to a situation at a hotel or airport that makes them seem like the rest of us.
- Sometimes it’s fun stuff, like when the director of Modern Family live Tweeted a horrible person on his flight. Or all the famous people who used to work in aviation.
- Other times it’s more cringy stuff, like when the reality TV star was down on her luck and was delivering airport luggage. Or when Sheryl Lee Ralph (a Million Miler no less!), pulled out her inner “entitled woman.”
So with the solid reality that famous people can do the same rights and wrongs as the rest of us, is it really THAT surprising that Pierce Brosnan, of James Bond fame (or Remington Steele, if you’re on the older side) recently pulled a 100% rookie move and was recently accused of trespassing in a Yellowstone National Park thermal area.
Yep. The Associated Press recently reported that Brosnan, age 70 (you’d think he’d KNOW better at that age, no?), was caught stepping out of bounds in the northern part of Yellowstone, near the Montana-Wyoming line on November 1st. He was therefore issued two federal citations late last week, and he’s required to appear in court.
The unfortunate event happened at Mammoth Terraces, a scenic spot of mineral-encrusted hot springs bubbling from a hillside. The path is well marked and safety signs are all over Yellowstone National Park, warning visitors to not veer off the trails, both for their own safety, and to preserve the park.
Unfortunately, Brosnan didn’t heed the signs. Even more unfortunately, the photo of him not heeding the signs made it onto the TouronsOfYellowstone Instagram (“Tourons” = a mashup of tourists and morons, of course):
And THAT, in turn, helped land him a mention in celeb rag mag TMZ.
Many said the person in that photo matches up exactly to the photo Brosnan himself posted on his Insta account around the same time…which, you must admit, it very much does.
Anyway, Brosnan is due to appear in court on January 23rd.
