Add to that the fact that, believe it or not, there are HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of people that have absolutely no idea who Clay Aiken is. I can safely estimate that half of the viewing audience of Regis and Kelly didn't know who the heck Clay Aiken was when he guest-hosted. I can safely estimate that an even larger number that might have seen these news reports don't know who the heck Clay Aiken is.
I agree with speedbump... why in the heck should news reports about a disturbance on a plane be expected to be a publicity report for his tour? That's an odd one.

If someone is falling asleep with their legs crossed, I would 100% agree with you that it is extremely likely that their foot could bump into the seat in front of them. And if that foot bumped into the seat in front of them several times, this could, and definitely would, incite the type of anger that would make someone lean over their seat and attempt to stop the offender. But that's not the claim being made here.
As I mentioned earlier, I fly often. OFTEN. And I can guarantee you that it is not easy for my size 6 foot to wedge itself into the armrest in front of me, even when intentional. I know you've all of a sudden relegated his actions to "touching the back of her armrest" but that wasn't the claim in any of the news reports, nor was it Clay's own admission. Clay stated that his foot was ON her armrest. For someone with the IMMENSE foot that you claim that he has (can I assume that his immense foot is probably larger than a size 6 female/size 5 male?), I can only imagine that it is even MORE difficult for his foot to lodge itself on her armrest. The type of force it would take would HAVE to be intentional. That is the point that Veruka has made on several occasions and that keeps getting ignored, or facts twisted. So the only thing that could have happened is that he had had her foot ON her armrest (ON by his own admission) prior to falling asleep, and that involuntary movement by him while he was asleep is what caused the woman's anger.
We haven't heard from the woman in any of this. Until we do, this vigorous defense of Clay Aiken is going to continue to be questioned, because the facts just simply do not make sense.
