Kevin Smith was kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight on Saturday. Why? For being fat.
The airline used its long-standing “Customers of Size” policy, stating that the comfort of their customers is paramount and they believed Smith needed an extra seat due to his fatness.
This didn’t sit well with Smith, and since he’s is regularly on Twitter, he let the world know. Robot 6 has the best details about the dust-up, including Smith’s NSFW tweets (which, I say as a fan, is some of his best work as a writer), including his resonse to Southwest Air’s trying to get in front of the story.
Kudos for Smith to sticking up for people of a certain size. From one fatty to another, I salute you.
