Aiken's Aching Feet

After a blog at the Official Clay Aiken Fanboard about the media's lack of attention to really important matters like the plight of the Ugandan children and the lack of attention to Unicef's plea for the children of Afghanistan . . .

Clay made the following statement to Entertainment Tonight regarding the Terror Over Tulsa:

Now, in an exclusive statement to ET, the singer tells his side of the story, saying, "While sleeping on a plane over the weekend, my foot evidently found a home on the arm rest of the passenger seated directly in front of me. I didn't realize I was causing the woman any distress until she woke me up with a quick hit to the chest.

"Unfortunately, being that this happened on a plane, the FBI was called in to investigate and eventually we were all sent on our way. I'd like to thank everyone for their concern; I am fine and have taken steps to prevent any foot wandering in the future."

Clay cleverly implies that there are far greater sources of distress in the world. "Now that I have your attention," he continues, "if you'd like to learn more about how you can help the world's children, please visit"

I'm glad to see that Clay was a gentlelman and didn't press charges over what was clearly an assault on this rude airline passenger's part. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Clay was very nice not to press charges against the female passneger that woke him up so rudely and then argued and apparently showed him. I'm glad to hear that he did make a statement about the incident. Clay has always been a gentleman and i hope he never changes that.

I can see Clay's good heart in this situation. If that was somebody else instead of him, that woman could have gotten the beating of her life, physically or otherwise. But, good upbringing brings out the better part of a person. Way to go, Clay. Show them the real meaning of the word CLASS, which is definitely lacking nowadays
