Richard Marx is a Hero?
Marx's wife, model and former MTV VJ Daisy Fuentes, captured the scary scene Tuesday on her cellphone during a Korean Air flight and posted details on Instagram.
"On our flight from Hanoi to Seoul a guy sitting in the next row from us got crazy & started attacking the flight attendants & passengers," Fuentes wrote. "When he started pushing the female staff and pulling them by the hair @therichardmarx was the first to help subdue him."
On our flight from Hanoi to Seoul a guy sitting in the next row from us got crazy & started attacking the flight attendants & passengers. When he started pushing the female staff and pulling them by the hair @therichardmarx was the first to help subdue him. This went on for FOUR hrs. I feel horrible for the abuse the staff had to endure but no one was prepared for this. They never fully got control of him. They didn't know how to use the taser & they didn't know how to secure the rope around him (he got loose from their rope restraints 3 times). I'll be posting some of the video after our next flight.
It looks like Richard Marx caught the beginning of the altercation and tweeted this picture. Marx clearly wasn't "Satisfied" with how the situation was handled so he decided to intervene.
A little background on why Richard Marx is my nemesis. Mr. Marx was scheduled to do a phone interview with me on Retro Lunch leading up to his show in Kalamazoo in Feb, 2016.
The interview was cancelled at the last minute. No big deal. When I tweeted that Richard Marx had to cancel he went ballistic. After exchanging MANY tweets and being very confused about why he was angry. He then called my office the next day to yell at me for at least 20 minutes. That was followed by a passive aggressive insult about me on twitter. I then did research about the king of the mullet and found I was not alone. I found that he has lashed out against many people for far less. You'd think by now he "Should've Known Better."
For example, I found this story and video on techdirt.com that put it all in perspective.
Important note: Before Richard Marx lost his mind on me for announcing to my listeners that he would not be able to do the interview, I was a pretty big fan. So, I took the incident VERY personal.
Like a child, I lashed out on instagram by creating very insulting/hilarious memes. Moral of the story: I will not be "Right Here Waiting" for a new Richard Marx album.
