Florida couple's airport meltdown: Accuse American Airlines, claim pet dogs kept away during delayed flight. A viral video captures them screaming at a woman in a wheelchair. The Daily Mail identified the duo as Dustin Miller, 42, and his husband Anthony Thorne, 40. Video footage captured them causing a disturbance at North Carolina's Charlotte Douglas Airport.

"Hey everyone!" shouted Miller in a TikTok video while waiting to board a flight to Fort Lauderdale with Thorne. "American Airlines f–ked us over!!"

"Dustin, I'm serious," Thorne, holding a Louis Vuitton bag, retorts, attempting to soothe his husband. Miller breaks free from his grasp. "You don’t care about the girls?"

“Shelby and Dobby. Shelby and Dobby,” Thorne slurs, wagging a finger in Miller’s face. “Remember them.”

According to the reports, it appears that the couple's pets, Shelby and Dobby, are referred to as the "girls" on their social media accounts.

A woman in a wheelchair, patiently waiting behind the agitated couple, informed them that her own dog, lying beside her, was frightened and shaking due to their disruptive behavior. She politely requested the men to leave but Miller snapped in response.

As reported, the couple, who recently marked their ninth anniversary according to their social media, resides in Wilton Manors, Florida. Miller, employed as an accountant at Sykes & Company, shares an apartment with Thorne.

Austin Summers, a transgender model and former neighbor, identified the couple in the circulating video and accused Miller of past transphobic remarks.

The model, in a tweet, revealed that Miller would address Summers derogatorily as "It." 

After confronting Miller to cease the insults on a specific occasion, Summers recounted Miller's aggressive reaction, including threats of harm, assault, and declarations of their worthlessness.

Summers explained that the only reason they refrained from seeking eviction was due to Thorne, whom they described as "so kind."
