Apparently, she didn't realize Air Marshals are supposed to remain anonymous during the course of a flight, for security issues. Oops! Her three-million Twitter followers, however, were quick to point out her mistake. Us Mag lists some of the responses:
"lmao poor Jim the air marshall is going to get fired thanks to you hahahaha." Added another: "if he exposed to you that he WAS an air marshall...I would say that was priviledged [sic] info that only the crew was suppose[d] to know." And yet another follower scolded, "just don't tweet stuff like that! u know better.dear lord u just dont talk abt air marshall's on flights! Its on the DL Kim!!"
Kim didn't think it was such a big deal, tweeting back, "Air Marshall's are supposed to keep their identity concealed. He did! I am just a private eye & assumed, so I asked him & he was honest!" But she did add, "OK I hope I don't get in trouble...logging off now! xo."
