Hell hath no fury like a Twitter user scorned.

Andie MacDowell felt that wrath over the weekend.

The actress, made famous by her Calvin Klein commercials and, later, film roles in "St. Elmo’s Fire" and "Four Weddings and a Funeral," was bumped from a first class flight on American Airlines Friday. A noted animal activist, MacDowell was traveling with her rescue dog, who was flying for the first time.

MacDowell claims she was moved to coach class — which she called "tourist" — because of the dog.

The hounds were thusly released in reaction to MacDowell’s tweet.


MacDowell later tweeted that she sent the original tweet because she wanted to be reimbursed for the difference between first class and coach, and that her only interest was in getting her dog through her first flight.

She also said she had no problem flying coach or traveling on a bus or subway — and that she had learned her lesson.

That tweet was on Sunday, two days after the initial furor, but by late Sunday evening it still had yet to die down, prompting yet another tweet from the actress.
