Rosie O'Donnell Flips Out at Airport Bar

Chicagoist: In today's absurd celebrity news: Rosie O'Donnell apparently is on a one-woman crusade against underage drinking. Or, if you believe Celebslam, was trying to get some tail. According to the National Enquirer, Rosie accosted two women drinking in a bar at O'Hare. Problem? They were 24 and 27.

From the Enquirer, via Celebslam:

"O'Donnell, killing time at the O'Hare airport bar/lounge when her flight out of Chicago was delayed, took matters into her own hands when she spotted two girls ordering beers, walked up after they were served "and started lecturing them indignantly," says a source. "She carped that even though the bartender didn't card them, she wasn't letting them get away with it. She told them underage people should not be drinking - and warned them of the dangers of premature boozing." But Rosie's jaw dropped fast when the "youngsters" started giggling uncontrollably and explained they were both -- at ages 24 and 27 -- well above legal age!"

Sigh. While we can appreciate her angst (we get annoyed when we're carded and youngsters around us aren't), it's probably not the best idea to take the law into your own hands.
