Even Astronaut Buzz Aldrin Gets Treated Like Crap By Delta

If you’re a fan of 30 Rock, you probably remember the episode where Buzz Aldrin played himself as a crotchety old man shaking his fist at the sky and yelling at the moon.

If you like your humor a little more broad, you may have caught him on The Big Bang Theory handing out space-themed Halloween candy and telling all the kids how he was an astronaut.

It turns out that these portrayals weren’t too far off from the actual Buzz Aldrin, who lost his s**t at a Delta terminal while wearing a NASA jacket, which was caught on tape by TMZ.

I can’t actually blame Aldrin for being angry here. It appears that he arrived before the plane departed or the doors were closed and wasn’t able to get on his flight because of some issue at the counter which wasn’t his fault. And from the sound of it, had things been handled more quickly, he would have made his original flight. At least they didn’t taze him or something.

Of course, Aldrin calmed down and hid his disgust after the incident, giving a fake smile and an “it’s not the end of the world, I don’t want to say anything bad about these people even though it’s clear I think they’re assholes.” Now where have I seen him do that before?
