Green Day Front Man In Saggy Pants Flight Ban Trouble
The Bay Area rock musician was traveling from Oakland to Burbank when the incident occurred. He posted on his twitter feed.
"Just got kicked off a southwest flight because my pants sagged too low! What the f**k? No joke!
One eye witness said,
"Basically, all the passengers were already seated, we were ready to go, they had already told us to start to turn our cellphones off," they added that Armstrong was approached by a flight attendant and told to pull his pants up. Armstrong initially dismissed the request, asking, "Don't you have better things to do then worry about that?" When the flight attendant repeated the request and threatened to have Armstrong removed from the plane, Armstrong relied "I'm just trying to get to my f**king seat."
Armstrong and the person he was traveling with were then removed from the flight.
Southwest airlines had declined to comment at the time of writing.
