Josh Duhamel was escorted off of a plane yesterday after he refused to turn off his BlackBerry ... sources tell TMZ.

We're told Duhamel was on a flight from New York (LGA) to Kentucky -- when, according to sources, the flight attendant asked Duhamel to turn off his BlackBerry before takeoff ... but he refused.

One passenger tells us Duhamel was "very rude" and "taunting the attendant."

We're told the flight attendant asked Josh to turn off the device three separate times -- and on the third time Josh laughed at his request.

We're told Duhamel's reaction infuriated the attendant, who then called for backup -- and the plane, which was already on the runway, was turned back to the gate.

Two US Airways reps eventually boarded the plane and escorted Duhamel off of the aircraft.

We're told passengers were pissed -- because the incident further delayed the flight.

Before boarding the plane, we're told Josh was in the airport bar watching the Cleveland/Miami game.

Duhamel's rep told TMZ Josh was texting on his BlackBerry about his flight being delayed.  The rep adds, "He's sorry."

Who does this punk @ss think he is?? Most celebrities think they are above rules and regulations, I am so glad he got kicked off the plane, I am sure he never thought that would happen.

He's gone steadily downhill ever since he married the ugly-ass Fergie. Used to be a really nice guy, now just an entitled jerk.

How's this for an idea:
Tax A-list celebs an extra 40% on their income for special travel tax and create an A-list celeb airline run by old has-been A-list celebrities. that way they can abuse and delay their own kind and stay out of our lives -- and -- be taxed for being a-holes!

It's bad enough to even get to the point of take off on a plane with the security and waiting and all. And then this ****wad makes the plane turn around. I'd be PISSED if I was on the plane. Loser.

What the heck is it with these supposed special people. Just because they are in "the business" doesn't make them superior to everyone else. They need to get it in their heads that they are mere mortals like the rest of us and are NOT above the law. What a jerk!!!

He's very arrogant. He needs to learn that he has to follow the rules of society just like every other normal person.

What an arrogant *******!! Just because you're well-known and you have money doesn't give you the right to delay the flight for everyone! I'm so happy he got kicked off the plane!!
