This Actor From The Wire Was On RTE News Today - And He Was NOT Happy

There was chaos in Dublin Airport today as countless flights were delayed or cancelled due to Storm Emma. 

RTE headed over to speak to some of the passengers affected, and one of them just so happened to be rapper and actor Fredro Scruggs Jr., better known as Fredro Starr. 

Fans of The Wire might recognise him for his role as Marquis ‘Bird’ Wilson, one of the enforcers of the Barksdale Organisation. 

Sadly he doesn't seem to pleased to be stuck in Ireland after his flight from Chicago to Prague was diverted.

"Chicago should have told us that we were flying into the eye of the storm," he told RTE. 

"Standing on the runway three hours, no water, nothing - this is Aer Lingus."
