Silent Bob Speaks Out Against Southwest Airlines

Film director Kevin Smith tweeted over the weekend about being booted from a Southwest Airlines flight because the captain determined he couldn’t safely fit into just one seat.

I’ve passed the stinkin’ arm-rest-test. And still, the lady asks me to get up and come with her off the plane. I get up without a fuss at all, quietly grab my bag, make eye contact with a fellow Fatty who was praying he’d pass, and leave.

Southwest Airlines apologized but stood by its “customer of size” policy.

Now it’s time for Kevin Smith to apologize to me for Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
