Kevin Smith Kicked Off Southwest Airlines Flight for Being Too Fat

Kevin Smith, director of cult classics such as Mallrats and Clerks, recently gave Southwest Airlines a bad dose of PR after they kicked him of a flight for being too fat. Kevin Smith responded to the unflattering action by posting the following on Twitter:

“Dear @SouthwestAir – I know I’m fat, but was Captain Leysath really justified in throwing me off a flight for which I was already seated?” Smith Tweeted of his ordeal. “I’m way fat… But I’m not THERE just yet,” he continued. “But if I am, why wait til my bag is up, and I’m seated WITH ARM RESTS DOWN. In front of a packed plane with a bunch of folks who’d already I.d.ed me as ‘Silent Bob.’”

After an apology from SouthWest Airlines, Smith didn't back down saying:

“Dear Fucktarded PR-Challenged Fatty-Haters at @SouthwestAir: Your ‘apology’ blog is insulting, redacted bullshit. FULL details in two hours….”
