Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard Shut Down Backlash Over Documenting Their Travel Nightmare

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are setting the record straight after receiving backlash for documenting their family’s travel nightmare. On Monday, the couple opened up during Dax’s podcast “Armchair Expert” about the negative comments they received following the incident. “So by the time we acknowledged, ‘No, this flight isn’t going out tonight,’ everyone’s already grabbed the hotel rooms,” Dax said. Kristen went on to share why she believes the controversy really struck a chord with people and how she doesn’t have the “time or energy” for the comments. “[People] want to be angry about something. It was anything. It was like, ‘You’re not being kicked out,’ ‘Of course there were hotels,’ ‘I can’t believe you spent $600 on pillows.'” On July 27, Kristen shared behind-the-scenes peeks at the ordeal on her Instagram story, revealing how she, Dax, their two daughters and other loved ones were “stranded at the Boston airport for 9 hours” due to flight delays.
