    Default Billie Joe Armstrong's pants get him grounded

    Billie Joe Armstrong's pants get him grounded
    Talk about a fashion victim: Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong’s sagging pants cost him a seat on a Southwest Airlines flight, reports Fox News.

    "Just got kicked off a southwest flight because my pants sagged too low! What the f-- No joke!" the rock star tweeted on Thursday night.

    Southwest responded to Armstrong’s tweet: "Very sorry for your experience tonight, someone from our Customer Relations Team will reach out to you to get more details."


    This is how Pantsgate went down: Armstrong was on a plane set to go from Oakland, California, to Burbank, California when a flight attendant asked him to pull his low-slung pants up.

    According to an associate producer at Oakland’s ABC 7, who happened to witness the tiff, Armstrong sassed back, "Don't you have better things to do then worry about that?"

    The attendant reportedly asked the rocker again, and threatened to have him removed from the flight, to which the star replied, "I'm just trying to get to my f--g seat."

    The Green Day musician and his traveling companion were removed from the flight.

    Southwest addressed the incident in a 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."

    Reps for Armstrong, 39, could not be reached for comment.

    The dude is 39.

    It's time to drop the angry teenager bit. Especially when you are worth millions of dollars and have nothing left to complain about.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Agreed, he's not some late teen early 20 something punk rocker out to fight the man. He's now a late 30's, millionaire and is THE MAN. Pull up your fuckin pants and grow up douche-bag.

    I like some of their tunes, but he is a douche.

    I wonder why Southwest Airlines apologized. I would have appreciated this statement more:

    "He was an asshole that would not accommodate our simple request to pull up his pants. We removed him from the flight and will continue to do so with other such passengers."

    In his defense, maybe his pants were down from the TSA screening

    No one's asking the real questions here. What's the hell is a millionaire doing flyin' on sardine city airlines aka SW Air? I flew once about 3 years ago and I felt like a cow on the way to the slaughter lots.

    The moment he showed disrespect for the staff onboard the plane by using the 'F' word was the moment he invited himself off the flight.

    Why wouldn't Southwest talk about the reason they asked him to pull his pants up? This is a safety issue. If there is an emergency and you have to evacuate the plane, do you want some douche bag with saggy pants slowing you down because he can barely walk and he keeps getting them caught on the arm rests? This guy is an idiot.
