On Thursday Billie was traveling from Oakland to Burbank. While waiting to put a bag in the overhead compartment, a stewartess asked him to pull up his sagging pants.
“Don’t you have better things to do than worry about that?” Armstrong said. The flight attendant then repeated the request, according to an ABC affiliate producer who was on the flight.
Armstrong replied, “I’m just trying to get to my f—ing seat.”
Armstrong tweeted, “Just got kicked off a southwest flight because my pants sagged too low! What the f—? No joke!”
Southwest later released a fuller statement:
“As soon as we became aware of what had happened, we reached out to apologize for this Customer’s experience. He elected to take the next flight. We followed up with this Customer and involved Employees to get more details and, in our latest conversations, understand from the Customer the situation was resolved to his satisfaction.”
