Billie Joe Armstrong Gets Booted off Southwest Flight for Sagging Pants
Sometimes our fashion choices have consequences, even for world renowned rockstars like Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong. On Thursday the rocker was boarding a flight on Southwest airlines when a flight attendant apparently asked him to pull up his pants because they were sagging too low. Armstrong refused according to ABC News and Perez Hilton, and responded by telling the attendant that she probably had more important things to worry about. The flight attendant proceeded to ask him again, this time he responded with a little more hostility, stating: “I’m just trying to get to my (Insert choice word beginning with an “f” here) seat.”
He was quickly removed from the plane for not listening where he then tweeted:
“Just got kicked off a sSouthwest flight because my pants sagged too low! What the (insert same choice word here)? No joke!”
Southwest responded via Twitter soon after stating:
“Very sorry for your experience tonight, someone from our Customer Relations Team will reach out to you to get more details.”
I don’t know if I think that sagging pants are enough to kick someone off of a plane but I do agree that he probably could have just pulled his pants up for the flight seeing as though he is not a 21 year old anymore, and it might have just saved him the drama. What do you think?
