Green Day Singer Kicked Off Plane
2011-09-03 by andcas | 160 Comments
Green Day vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong was booted from a Southwest Airlines flight leaving from Oakland to Burbank California. Armstrong was approached by a flight attendant and told to hike up his pants which he replied, "Don't you have better things to do than worry about that?"

When the attendant threatened to have him removed if he did not comply the frontman stated, "I'm just trying to get to my fucking seat." The airlines customer service reached out to Armstrong, who decided to catch the next flight out, via twitter apologizing for the ridiculous incident.

When I saw the headline, I thought he got kicked off mid flight. He would've sang a real Panic Song then. Maybe he would have fallen into the ocean, washed ashore, and become a Castaway. Or join some cannibals and make Brain Stew.

I don't like the guy any more than most of you seem to but the attendant was being a twat. There is no report of there being anything wrong with his attire other than the fact that he was sagging. Since when do they get to tell us how to be comfortable in the increasingly uncomfortable situation that is flying these days? I was hoping there would be all kinds of shit to make fun of here but that is a pretty indefensible position. $10 says that person got fired for opening the company to litigious action despite who the passenger might have been.
