Conrad Hilton, 20, is under arrest for going absolutely bonkers on a plane

FFN_Hilton_Night_FP5_122311jpg_8315731

I never realized how little we see of Paris and Nikki Hilton’s brothers. These days, we rarely even see Nikki! These are photos of Paris and her brother Conrad from 2011. There are two younger brothers, Barron and Conrad. Barron was the one in Miami a few years ago, getting into cracked-out beefs with Lindsay Lohan and her sketchball crew. That should tell you a lot about Barron. As for Conrad, he’s only 20 years old and he’s already got a criminal record, how shocking. In 2012, he was charged with a DUI (for alcohol and marijuana), put on probation and then he violated his probation by getting high.

Well, guess what? Conrad might be attempting to be the most screwed up of the whole Hilton clan. And that’s saying something. Incidentally, I love it when people sound just the way you’d imagine. Like, Kim Kardashian sounds exactly like you’d expect: like a vapid p0rn star doing a baby voice. And Conrad Hilton sounds exactly like what you’d think of a spoiled trust fund d-bag whose daddy writes checks to make the problems go away. Long story short: Conrad went berserk on a plane and he was yelling to and about PEASANTS!!!!

Paris Hilton’s younger brother Conrad Hilton was just arrested in L.A. for allegedly going insane on an international flight back in July … and getting violent with flight attendants … TMZ has learned. According to officials, multiple witnesses on the plane say the 20-year-old went berserk on a flight from London to L.A. … and began screaming and threatening flight attendants.

According to witnesses, Conrad was heard yelling the following things during his meltdown:

– “If you wanna square up to me bro, then bring it and I will f–king fight you.”
– “I am going to f–king kill you.”
– “I will f–king rip through you.”
– “I will f–king own anyone on this flight; they are f–king peasants.”

Witnesses say … at one point during the flight, Conrad was ferociously punching the bulkhead of the plane … 10 centimeters from a flight attendant’s face. Witnesses also say they could smell weed seeping out of the bathroom … and believe Hilton was the culprit. Conrad was allegedly so out of control, children on the plane were crying. At one point, Conrad fell asleep … and the captain authorized crew members to restrain him to his seat for the descent. Conrad was ultimately handcuffed to his seat.

Witnesses told officials Conrad grabbed a flight attendant’s shirt and said, “I could get you all fired in 5 minutes. I know your boss! My father will pay this out. He has done it before. Dad paid $300k last time.”

According to documents obtained by TMZ, Hilton admitted to taking a sleeping pill before the flight and then bragged that he “buried” the flight attendants.

“I told all of them I could get all of their jobs taken away in less than 30 seconds.”

We just spoke with Hilton’s attorney Robert Shapiro — yes, that Robert Shapiro — who confirms Conrad took a sleeping pill before the flight and he wasn’t himself. Shapiro says there are numerous news reports and cases of people experiencing adverse effects, including aggressive outbursts … and he’s suggesting that’s what happened here.

[From TMZ]

What kind of amazing “sleeping pill” was that? Are they putting crystal meth into sleeping pills now? I mean, some people do some freaky stuff on Ambien, but I’ve never heard of someone taking an Ambien and going flat-out cray-cray on a plane and yelling at all of the peasants.

Here’s the thing though… even if his name wasn’t Conrad Hilton, he’s still being treated differently than an Arab-American man or basically any darker-skinned man or woman who tried to pull this kind of stunt. I mean, if this was Mohammed Hilton-al Jabari, they would have put down the plane immediately and he would have been either shot or arrested on terrorism charges. Not only is this a tale of a poor little cracked-out rich boy, it’s also a tale of white privilege.

    The Hiltons raised some truly great kids.

    • Lucy2 says:

      They must be so proud. Drug problems, multiple arrests, general assholery.

      • paola says:

        If they really cared about their kids they would swap money and gifts with affection and love since day 1.
        The parents are to blame here.

    • Kat says:

      The Hiltons should hook up with the Casiraghi offspring, they’d probably get along beautifully *gag*

    • MumzyC says:

      If, at his birth, they had gone with their “peasant resort” brand, Conrad Hampton-Inn would have been tranq darted and Homeland Security would have been waiting for him on the tarmac.

      • MyCatLoves TV says:

        Wonder how Daddy would feel if we peasants decided to boycott the Hilton brand for a while? It is peasant money that made them rich.

      • Des says:

        @MyCatLoves TV — the Hiltons don’t actually own that much of the hotels any more.

    • Vee says:

      Compare the Hilton family and the Trump family. The Hilton’s are entitled idiots, the Trump children are all hard working and drama free.

      • lucy2 says:

        Not all drama free, didn’t one have a trophy hunting scandal? But yes Trump children>Hilton children. Seeing Trump in action, I’m going to say there mothers did a good job raising them.

      • Mintessence (the original Minty) says:

        @Vee: You forgot the part where Trump’s sons (who are also entitled) went on an African safari and killed an elephant, a leopard, a water buffalo, a civet cat, a kudu, a crocodile…and possibly more, but I stopped researching further because I was disgusted by all the photos they had, posing with their dead trophies, stupid grins on their faces. At least Paris (who I dislike) adopts animals.

        @lucy2: We had the same thought. I was typing my comment before I noticed yours was posted.

  2. paola says:

    Rich people’s kids really don’t have a clue.

    • laura.e says:

      Unless you’re Bill Gates’ children :-)

      • FLORC says:

        Or Mark Cuban’s! I really liked what he said about his kids. That they have chores and work for allowances. He doesn’t want to raise jerks because so many other rich parents he knows do just that.
        Very respectable.

      • Duchess of Corolla says:

        +1

      • FingerBinger says:

        Or the Trump children. I’ve never heard about them getting arrested.

    • Jane's Wasted Talent says:

      Um, wow, no. It depends on the family, just like all other kids. I’ve met a number of ‘rich kids’ over the course of my life who are really neat people.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I completely agree.

        A person’s wealth doesn’t indicate their character. There are wonderful people and assholes at all economic levels.

  3. Yeses says:

    No amount of $$$ in the world can buy you class…that is my poster…and he is the poster child. UGH!!

  4. DailyNightly says:

    Put this little douchebag on the no-fly list permanently. Let’s see how quickly he changes his tune.

    • Mikeyangel says:

      Agreed. Although that would mean daddy didn’t buy his kid out of his problems, and these people are incapable of not enabling their spawn.

    • Joy says:

      Also, flight attendants should be allowed to have tasers. I bet a few volts would shut his ass up.

      • Pandy says:

        I would pay extra to see that LOLLL.

      • Jenna says:

        I gotta totally agree with the taser idea. Guns? Obviously a terrible idea (holes in planes are bad) but a stun gun? I don’t get why there isn’t at least one trained person on board who both has the ability AND the permission to use one. I’ve flown on several flights over the years where my husband and I have had to play impromptu bouncers for flight attendants dealing with out of control passengers. Worst was on a flight with a drunken rugby team who couldn’t seem to stop trying to play grab ass with the women (and a few of the men). By the end of the flight, everytime the two smallest attendants had to walk down a certain section of the flight, they would go into a small coughing fit and either myself (6’2 looking like a brassed off Amazon who just had her chainmail bra stolen) or my husband (5’11 400lb power lifter who looks like Hades own bouncer when he wants to) would have sudden needs to go to the bathroom and walk the aisle down with them. Crappy thing was we had been asked to take the gig over by the 3 Marines who had taken the first shift of the flight but had to get off. The attendants had no recourse in the air, they are trying like the dickens to keep a whole plane calm and quiet, and sometimes jackasses just seem to feed on that idea of ‘smile and try to calm the situation’. It’s hard to always know when to pull the plug, when to force the issue, and most airlines want the flight attendants to always err on the side of the customers (but if things go totally sideways, it will be the FA’s fault for not handling things faster – I swear, they are screwed no matter and I have no clue how they deal with that kinda stress on a job) so you get idiots like Hilton taking it even further. Gah. Either let the FA’s protect themselves & the other passengers or hire only retired cops/military/bouncers who can pull intimidation on easily and slide it right back off again with a smile to help a child find the bathroom.

      • polkasox says:

        @joy – AGREED. People are a-holes.

      • Amy says:

        Jenna –

        Your story was awesome and you and your husband rock!! Use your awesome strength and bad-assness to always make the douches of the world regret it!

      • homegrrrl says:

        I wouldn’t risk someone crapping them self while being tasered

  5. su says:

    NO. LIES. TOLD.

    • Sparkly says:

      I actually applauded that part. This is why Celebitchy is my favorite site! Other gossip rags & sites (that I’ve seen, anyway) don’t address important issues (privilege, feminism, etc.) like this site does.

    • Esmom says:

      Seriously. So true and so depressing.

    • tifzlan says:

      Yup, so true. A man on Twitter was tweeting about how his sister, who wears a hijab, was harrassed on a Delta flight and guess what? Not only did Delta staff NOT do anything, they also removed the lady, her husband and 4 children to THE BACK OF THE FLIGHT.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Definitely true.

    • minime says:

      Yes! This is definitely what we should all be talking about. Why on hell wasn’t he received by an anti-terrorism squad? (We all know why). Who knew that one of them could be even more pathetic than Paris.

    • Joy says:

      I personally see it as green privilege. Money is green and it’s really all that matters.

      • manta says:

        I agree, green trumps every other color.

        “if this was Mohammed Hilton-al Jabari, they would have put down the plane immediately”. If he made the same rant as little Conrad, just completing the words “my father” with “the emir of Qatar”, or ” a member of the royal saudi family”, he would receive the same treatment. No landing, no shooting, no arrest.

        It reminds me a story about one of Gaddafi’s sons, Hannibal. He attacked two Swiss hotel staff, leading his father to jail two Swiss businessmen and impose economic sanctions against Switzerland. Children of the rich and powerful are always handled with gloves, nevermind the color.

      • Yup, Me says:

        It’s not an either or. His financial privilege and his white privilege are intertwined. But his financial/connection privilege with brown skin (and no connections) likely would not allow him to behave this way on a plane without severe consequences.

    • Alarmjaguar says:

      Yes, thank you for pointing the privilege here out!

      ps why am I always in moderation? Don’t think I’ve ever done anything to deserve it…

    • Cindy says:

      Agree. Celebitchy is kinda awesome. :)

    • lirko says:

      I know. Just dang… She nailed that ish, for real. It’s a sickening double standard.

    • MariPoodle says:

      As an American with Arab ancestry and a name that gets the side-eye from immigration every time, I tip my hat to you Kaiser. Appreciated like I can’t even tell you. To borrow from my Semetic cousins: “I’m Farklempt”.

      Signed,
      Budget Amal

  6. BRE says:

    “I am going to f–king kill you.”???? Yeah, white privilege for sure. And if he hadn’t have been white this would have been bigger news and people would labeling him a terrorist that deserved to be killed

  7. Toot says:

    Definitely white privilege. Especially since we’re just hearing about this now, but it happened in July.

  8. SamiHami says:

    I’d rather be a peasant than a Hilton.

  9. Mzizkrizten says:

    For why wasn’t he on a private jet or something?

    • Esmom says:

      I kinda wondered the same thing. I guess he was slumming.

    • Amy says:

      Another commented said it but I enjoyed it so much, so to quote them, “Because his Daddy only loves him $300,000 much.”

    • Tiffany :) says:

      My thoughts exactly!
      If you are so wealthy, why aren’t you on a private plane instead of here flying commercial with “peasants”?

  10. cannibell says:

    You sure nailed the white privilege angle. Reminded me why I can come to this site every day and not feel one squitch of guilt.

    Also, there should be a penalty enhancer for for this:
    “Conrad was allegedly so out of control, children on the plane were crying.”

    What a waste of perfectly good oxygen….

  11. Pegasus says:

    Nothing is more terrifying than a $20 year old rich boy threatening to call daddy.

  12. Kiddo says:

    Observations: He wears a darker shade of wet n wild lip gloss than Eddie Redmayne. This: “I will f–king own anyone on this flight; they are f–king peasants.” is hilariously cliche. Shapiro will legalzoom the defense. Something new I learned, it costs a hell of a lot more to fire a flight attendant than to actually pay one to work. $ 300k is how many years on the median salary?

    • Bridget says:

      That doesnt surprise me about the flight attendants, considering how many lawsuits have been fought over the years about firing them over age and appearance.

  13. rickrod says:

    This is a microcosm of everything that’s gone wrong in the U.S., and why this country and culture is probably doomed.

    Talent, skills, creativity, ingenuity = ZERO. Family, inheritance= EVERYTHING. Conrad might as well be a poster boy for Tom Piketty’s book. We offer the very best, to a wildly inexplicable degree, to those with no qualifications whatsoever, other than that years ago, while under the influence of Dom Perignon, their parents shared sexual fluids and decided to make the world a bit worse than it already was.

    Still worse, everyone knows that Hilton will just go on, being treated to the best life has to offer, regardless of a twisted mentality and a proclivity for being talent-less. This is what we’ve become, and the pittance that remains is what the future will hold for the rest of us.

  14. Chesty LaRue says:

    Lots of people take sleeping pills. Lots of people drink. Only rotten, entitled little brats treat other people that way. I wish there was an air Marshall on that flight

  15. lower-case deb says:

    i thought my sleepwalking was bad, when i ended up typing random text messages on my husband’s phone.

    what kind of pill induces sleepdouchebaggery?

  16. Bridget says:

    You know someone’s hard core when they threaten to have their dad pay you off.

  17. Jess says:

    Entitlement is disgusting. Some people can be wealthy, well-adjusted and work (all of the Trump kids seem really together and cognizant of their good fortune, still contribute to society, have jobs).

  18. Christine says:

    Your white privilege comment is dead on. So true. Also, daddy and mommy constantly bailing him out of jams is part of the reason why this brat is so entitled and delusional. I do wonder what the 300 K was for though. Also, if this happened in July, why is he just being arrested now in February?

  19. Talie says:

    That’s Barron in the pics — Conrad looks really strung out.

    It’s amazing that not one of Rick & Kathy’s kids turned out well. Her sisters seem to be the opposite — the all the kids seem moderately normal. Even Nicky Hilton seems to have her issues, but quietly.

  20. scout says:

    Nikki is the sane one of all. What went wrong in their upbringing? They have their parents in a long term marriage, apparently in a loving relationship and the kids seem to have the best parental love, comfort, support they could ever have and still act like spoiled tortured brats!

    • greenmonster says:

      I don’t know about the best parental love, comfort and support. If you have four kids and ALL of them have or had issues ( although Nicky turned out to be halfway normal) something is off. Maybe in the Hilton family love, comfort and support is spelled M-O-N-E-Y.

    • Talie says:

      I’ve seen Kathy Hilton on Beverly Hills Housewives a few times — you would not want that woman as your mother. She is underhanded and pretty mean. I can’t imagine what that’s like…

      Rick Hilton comes off like a robot. Even his voice is monotone.

      • Ming says:

        I’ve read a few gossip reports online saying that the mother of Kathy Hilton (also Kyle Richard’s mom) trained/raised the girls from a young age to look for a man with money, and when Kathy found mr. Hilton all of the other sisters had to mind their manners so as to not lose “the catch” for their eldest sister Kathy.

        I believe the drama starts there, with the grandma and her secrets and plotting to marry her girls off to money.

        I think there’s a book about it? I can’t remember exactly but I know I read it in a few places.

    • Ennie says:

      Apparntly this attitude comes in their genes or something (joke), because I remember reading what an A**h*le was that Hilton who married young Liz Taylor was. (I think his name was also Nick or Nicky).
      I remember reading that he mistreated Liz and had an alcohol problem IIRC.

    • bluhare says:

      When you have your children (Paris and Nicky) being featured in Vanity Fair about their club hopping when they were in their teens, I think you can say there wasn’t much parenting at all.

  21. NewWester says:

    Any wagers from fellow commenters when the report of Conrad”douche” Hilton entering rehab comes out? I say one week.
    As for ” white privilege ” Kaiser nailed it.

  22. greenmonster says:

    Reminds me of the boy from Texas who killed four people ( and left two severely injured) while driving drunk and ended up in Rehab. That boy was white and from a rich family too.
    I know the Hilton boy didn’t kill anyone, but he made threats to several people while being on a plane! And yes he would have been treated very differently if he wouldn’t be very privileged and most importantly white.

    Those nitwit parents will pay whatever it costs to make it as easy as it gets for Conrad. For them it’s everyone else’s fault. Because if they would acknowledge that their son is a nasty piece of trash they would have to admit that they have failed as parents.

    • Amy says:

      The threats aren’t acceptable, but punching things?? Screaming at the passengers? Making children cry and stomping up and down the aisles??
      Fck that sht to the highest order!
      Arrest his butt and let Daddy figure out whether he wants to waste his money again!

  23. Maria says:

    it reminds me of this rich college kid who murderd someone and the lawyer tried to defend him with:” all his life he had never faced any consequences and was always enabled by people around him. you cant blame him for not understanding that actions have consequences.” while that obviously cant excuse anything, it can explain a lot.

    why would he ever think about his actions? daddy pays 300k. so what? thats like we do something wrong and have to pay 30 cents. it wont make you change your mind, it may even spur you on even more because you see how easy it is to get out of the situation.

  24. Jess says:

    So gross. And totally a case of white privilege.

  25. Adrien says:

    This guy wears a foundation that’s 2 shades lighter. Or he’s really that pasty.

  26. maeliz says:

    My flights are so boring. I might hear a few kids talking or a seat being kicked , most people are sleeping. They all took their sleeping pills before getting on the plane

  27. t.fanty says:

    Did anyone else see the thumbnail pic and think “man, Ryan Philipe just doesn’t age”?

  28. Ginger says:

    I’m not going to disagree with you about white privilege regarding Conrad Hilton because his family is very rich and powerful (and the part about getting people fired may actually be true. I used to work for a company that was partially Hilton owned) but I can tell you that the TSA and Federal Air Marshals do take violent behavior on an airplane seriously. Air Marshals are not on every single flight. It sounds like they didn’t have one on this plane or he would have been in cuffs immediately. Flight attendants are trained to handle certain scenarios but obviously don’t have the same training, etc. as an Air Marshal does. And I don’t believe a “sleeping pill” caused his behavior either. What a train wreck of a family. His comments about “peasants” and his father “paying 300 K” is so disgusting.

  29. Dominque says:

    That’s Barron in those pictures with Paris, not Conrad.

  30. SnarkGirl says:

    Let me guess, coked out of his skull pre-flight, popped a sleeping pill which then didn’t work fast enough for his liking, so he tried to hurry it along with some weed. Throw in a spoiled rich-boy attitude and this is the result.

    What a tw*t.

  31. The Original Mia says:

    I am legitimately surprised they didn’t land that plane for a security emergency. This pit stain threatenend people, was disruptive, and all they did was restrain him. Oh, to have a taser. He’s not worth the words I just typed about him, but placing him on the no-fly list for the next 10 years or banning him from first class, making him sit with the peasants, might be the best things they could do to his entitled butt.

    • Abigail says:

      My thought was that this perhaps took place over the Atlantic. Perhaps they were unable to land the plane while he raged on, and he was already constrained by the time they reached the US. I don’t disagree with the white privilege comment, but I have seen a few passengers removed from business class international flights.

  32. funcakes says:

    He reminds me of Paris friend Brandon. He call Lindsay Lohan a fire crotch and the said that she only have a million dollars. Brandon proceeded to make an ass out of himself by saying that the fact that she only had a million dollars made her poor.
    After making that statement he was cut off and had to sleep at his friends house.

  33. Nuzzybear says:

    I don’t feel my life is threatened when a rich brat makes a threat involving his money. Rich people have so much to lose. On a plane, I’m more scared of people who look like they have very little and have little to lose – no matter their race, creed etc.

    • Kiddo says:

      Because rich people NEVER actually kill anyone? Cough, Durst.
      Cough, Doris Duke. Cough

    • Kitten says:

      This is an incredibly classist comment. What is “a lot” to one person is absolutely nothing to another–it’s all subjective.

      On a personal level, I’d rather lose all my savings and monetary possessions than lose a family member-I would think that this would extend to people of lesser economic means as well. In other words, no matter how much money you do or don’t have, family and health is usually of greater importance.

      The truth is that some people think they are impenetrable because of their wealth and status and they rely on that to absolve them of any sense of personal accountability.

  34. Size Does Matter says:

    This is a huge opportunity for the Dramamine people. I can see the ad now “Dramamine, helping peasants peacefully sleep on planes for 80 years.” With a screaming 20-year-old brat in the background being strapped down to his airplane seat.

  35. Ruyana says:

    The ultra-rich who think they are building character by stacking money higher than others really tick me off. “More” does not make you “better”!

  36. Kori says:

    Something went wrong over the generations. The original Conrad Hilton had a tremendous work ethic, made his kids work low level jobs in the company for the same wage as others and left almost his whole fortune to charity. (That got overturned on a technicality by his son Barron, Paris’s granddad, but it’s still all going to charity in the end.

  37. PennyLane says:

    The hilarious thing is, this guy doesn’t even have much money! Hence the commercial flight.

    From 2007:

    “Hotel magnate Barron Hilton announced yesterday that he’s leaving 97% of his wealth to charity, dramatically cutting the fortune his children and grandkids will get.

    That means granddaughter Paris Hilton, who once stood to inherit $100 million or more by some accounts, could end up with a measly $5 million or so. “The whole family will be devastated, particularly [Paris' mom] Kathy,” a pal of the clan told the Daily News last night.

    …Barron Hilton is worth an estimated $2.3 billion, including the $1.2 billion he made from the sale of the Hilton Hotels and Harrah’s casino chains. All but 3% of the money will go into a charitable trust to benefit the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, which was started by his father, the foundation announced yesterday.

    The foundation funds clean water in Africa, education for blind children and housing for the mentally ill.”

    http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/paris-hilton-survive-article-1.274595

    It sounds like Grandpa took a long hard look at his family and was like, “Hmmm…never mind. Don’t bother trying to be decent human beings – I’ll just leave it all to charity instead.”

    • Amy says:

      Good for him seriously.

      I always think it’s a little sad when individials manage to achieve great wealth and then say they’ll leave nothing to their kids and future generations. But you know what? If your family is like this then I support it 100%. Better yet make that sht ironclad and don’t tell them till it’s all gone.

    • lucy2 says:

      I was glad he did that too. He probably gave them all plenty of opportunity, education, etc, and they all just wasted it, for 2 generations now. And not even just laziness, but awful behavior. I would have written them out completely.

    • PennyLane says:

      Totally agree – just leave the offspring a couple of million each and make sure that competent people are handling the money for them so it’s not lost schemes and con men. Any more of an inheritance than that and it appears to corrupt the soul….

    • Ginger says:

      WOW! Good, so those of his heirs that work will be fine but those that don’t will be screwed because they don’t know how to go about it. I still recall Paris Hilton’s complete cluelessness on that reality show The Simple Life she did so many years ago with Nicole Richie. It’s surprising to me that Nicole has such a stable life now and a strong work ethic. I always thought she would be the messed up one. But I guess I was wrong. Paris take note.

    • tabasco says:

      I think Grandpa should decide to leave them not one single penny. It must suck to have your grandkids be entirely horrible people, but that’s what they are. They have utterly destroyed the Hilton name.

      Dear Grandpa Barron,

      Stop ALL cashflow currently going to all of them. Set up one of those Paul Newman-esque not-for-profit companies that is a self-perpetuating source of cashflow for charities. Donate *everything*. Maybe – MAYBE – put in a clause that says they get PART (not all) of their tuition paid for if they complete some sort of proper education and go X number of years without a sex tape, arrest, public acts of idiocy, etc. Even then that would be a major advantage over most.

      They are vile. And this kid is a laughable caricature of himself and doesn’t even know it! Asshat!

  38. Crumpet says:

    Wow. Colossal douche bag! Sounds like he mixed Ambien with uppers and topped it off with some weed. Not that that is any excuse.

    I love that they handcuffed him to his seat.

    Trying to turn this into a discussion about white privilege is a stretch IMO. They know who Conrad Hilton is, and acted accordingly.

    • Kiddo says:

      “Trying to turn this into a discussion about white privilege is a stretch IMO. They know who Conrad Hilton is, and acted accordingly”

      Crumpet, your last sentence canceled out your first sentence.

        So much this.

        They acted accordingly? Lol, look I’m someone who already hates flying and if I was trapped in a tiny pressurized compartment with this sht stain doing all this I would be mad as hell that the staff ‘acted accordingly’.

        If someone with the wrong skin tone did everything Conrad did then they’d be in danger of immediate violence aimed at them. You don’t think the fact the kid is a number -1 in foundation didn’t help his case a little?

    • SnarkySnarkers says:

      I agree. The kid is a little rich douche who deserves to be locked up but white privilege? So if say Aliko Dangote or even one of the Saudi princes (not that they’d ever fly commercial) threw a tantrum you think they would have just thrown them right in jail? I’m betting they would get the same treatment as Mr. Douche Hilton. I think the culprit here is rich privilege.

    Well, Rick, looks like your next real estate commission check may have to pay for your son’s misdeeds.

    Happy selling!

    This is a long read but well worth the time….it’s from a 2006 book “House of Hilton” and certainly explains why the Hilton family is as effed up as it is, and it doesn’t necessarily come from the father’s side, who has left almost all of his fortune to charity, it’s from the mother’s side.

    That’s Barron.

  42. erinn says:

    Could this be a mental health issue? My brother has bi-polar disorder, and is hospitalized at least once per year for severe manic episodes/psychosis. Not trying to make excuses for this idiot, but Conrad’s actions are so insane that I definitely don’t think entitlement and/or drugs are all that’s in play here.

    What a terrifying experience for the other passengers and staff.

  43. Jayna says:

    Anybody else there would have been police officers or federal agents at the gate arresting him when he got off the plane. Not Conrad. Six months later.

  44. snowflake says:

    sleeping pill my butt. little brat says his dad bailed him out before, was he on sleeping pills then? gmab

  45. kri says:

    Wow, he has perfectly illustrated that money does not equal class. What an a$$hole. I really wish an air marshal had at least tackled hsi scrawny ass or maybe one of the nearbycrying children he scared barfed on him.

  46. Anguishedcorn says:

    Such a stark contrast to, say, Warren Buffet’s son, who is putting his money toward solving world hunger.

  47. PinaColada says:

    Reading that frightened me. IF a man were so violent and threatening (rip through you???) I would RUN. I feel bad for any woman who dates him and he seems like a dark and scary person with frightening issues.

  48. kranky says:

    FFW: Hilton is facing federal charges brought by the FBI. He’s currently out on bail, but could face up to 20 years in prison.

    • Livealot says:

      Thank you for this because I could have sworn acting up on a plane is a felony.

    • FlowerintheAttic says:

      There were FBI agents waiting for him as soon he as he got off the plane. They interviewed him then and there and that’s where he said even more enlightening statements. This was a federal offense, the FBI had to investigate. The ‘white privilege’ argument in this case, is pretty absurd. More along the lines of *rich a**hole privilege* and daddy knows a lot of people in the media to keep this quiet. Rich people privileges. Do people here think rich non-whites would not try to keep this quiet from the media either?

  49. Ginger says:

    Oh, I have to add that along with white privilege is profiling. My ex husband is always pulled out of the security line during the pre flight security routines for no other reason than he is a very large man. He’s 6’6″ and rarely smiles. He’s intimidating to say the least. And it would sound absolutely ridiculous to me except that I was witness to this EVERY time we flew. They pull him out of line, wand him and pat him down. Oh, and we are white. It’s no wonder that he hates to fly and tries to avoid it because of the discrimination and hassle. I’m positive he’s not the only one.

  50. Shannon says:

    What a little brat! If I found out about one of my sons acting like that, ish would get SO. REAL. I guess it goes to show that money can’t buy class.

  51. MarcelDeux says:

    THANK YOU. I applaud your acknowledgement of that.

  52. Khloe says:

    “”it’s also a tale of white privilege.”"
    AMEN AMEN

  53. Bread and Circuses says:

    Okay, he’s an incredible jerk, but he’s also 20 years old and doing drugs. I’ll give him the same sympathy I would Bobbi Kristina or even (gak) Justin Beiber.

    Too young, too rich, and possibly went off the rails because he’s never been taught where the rails *are*. Maybe he’ll always be a jerk — or maybe he’ll grow up a bit and figure out how to turn his life around. I wish him the best in the latter endeavour.

  54. Jana says:

    He’s only 20?? Honey, that hairline is saying 35. That Hilton gene pool was shallow and murky from the get-go.

  55. bravocueen says:

    On the heels of the release of a graphic video showing Islamic extremist terrorists burning another Muslim to death over a long period of time, I find your comparison pretty awful. I get that the HIlton’s are a bunch of spoiled brats, but can’t you even acknowledge that the Islamic Terrorism really is a THING? Do you really think the plane should have been grounded out of fairness? SMH.

    • kanyecaps says:

      I think you’re sort of missing the point.

      Some strung out rich white dude threatened several people personally on a plane and was allowed to sit comfortably until he fell asleep. The plane was not grounded. The belligerent man was not arrested for violating air safety laws. If he had not been rich or white, there’s a good chance he would have been labeled a bigger threat. The plane would have made an emergency landing. The passenger would have been arrested, interrogated, and probably labeled a terrorist when Fox News caught wind of the story.

      Dangerous people come in all colors. Religious radicals come in all colors. And yes, people should receive fair and equal treatment under the law. You know, for a silly little thing called EVERYONE’S F**ING SAFETY.

  56. Celebritney says:

    The man of my dreams

  57. RayneLo says:

    I am ashamed that I know this, but that picture is actually Baron Hilton, Conrad’s older brother *cringing*

  58. morgan says:

    Isn’t that a pic of Barron, just saying..haha id be annoyed if my pic was on a story and it wasn’t about me.

  59. Pepsi Presents...Coke says:

    Maybe they didn’t think to put his macadamia nuts on a silver platter, too. Remember when that stupid little girl’s father publically apologised for raising her so badly? Take note. Definitely privilege at work, what a fool.

    • G says:

      Oh if only he could be publicly ridiculed and humiliated like the daughter of that airline was. I would pay per view!

  60. G says:

    I agree with the ‘no fly list’ comment above. Since his parents have zero control over their demon seed and obviously need some help teaching little ‘Connie’ how to behave when traveling without his parents.

  61. anne_000 says:

    Well, that was $300k wasted. Now he knows that he can get into big trouble again without worry because mommy and daddy will shill out six-figures to do away with his ‘mistakes.’ Instead of learning to be responsible for his actions by fearing living through the consequences, he’s learned that nothing is going to be all that bad for him.

    And yes, white kid, especially a rich one (#affluenza), gets a softly-softly treatment while if it was a person of color, then there could have been a bunch of men getting out of their seat to hand out a beat down and then restrain him in his seat with all sorts of tape, cords, ties, etc. so tight that blood circulation may be hampered. Read about such happening before and no doubt will happen again.

  62. Katrina says:

    He probably freaked out once he realized he was flying commercial with us peasants.

    Every single one of the siblings has had drug and alcohol problems. None of them have been to college. What went wrong here? Their parents seem normal and they stay out of the public eye. They are still married after 30+ years, which is pretty rare for the mega-wealthy.

    Compare to Donald Trump, a publicity whore who has had multiple marriages and his kids are all smart, well-mannered and educated. Huh?

  63. yaya13 says:

    this put a lump in my throat. i’m surprised people aren’t having a stronger reaction to this. “i’m going to f-ing kill you?” calling everybody on the flight a peasant…including children. this dude is not just spoiled and ill behaved…he is sick, and needs serious consequences. i am so disappointed in how this is being handled. skin color and economic status are irrelevant to how much harm a person is capable of…and the fact that major authorities are blinded by these surface factors is so unsettling…esp bc it gives the green light for people that fit the bill to think they can get away with the same.

  64. EM says:

    He should have been given a back hander a long time ago. Too late now.

  65. AuroraBorealis says:

    You know, I don’t know whether I should be appalled at the kid or just feel really sorry for him. Clearly, his behaviour is disgusting and he’s an arrogant piece of work but what chance did he have of being a decent person when he was raised in an environment that bred Paris and Nicky Hilton? :(
