She kissed a lady – and says Southwest Airlines didn’t like it.
Actress Leisha Hailey, who starred on the Showtime array The L Word, went on a Twitter harangue Monday, furiously alleging that she and her partner were escorted off of a Southwest moody for kissing any other.
“I have been discriminated opposite by @SouthwestAir,” Hailey Tweeted. “Flt. attendant said that it was a “family” airline and kissing was not ok.”
Criticizing the airline for staffing “homophobic employees,” Hailey, 40, added: “Since when is showing love towards someone you love illegal? we wish to know what Southwest Airlines considers as ‘family.’ we know copiousness of smashing same sex families we would like to deliver them to. Boycott @SouthwestAir if you are gay. They don’t like us.”
The airline posted a matter late Monday, saying: “We perceived several newcomer complaints characterizing the function as excessive.”
“Our crew, obliged for the comfort of all business on board, approached the passengers formed only on function and not gender,” the matter continued. “The review escalated to a turn that was improved resolved on the ground, as against to in flight.”
This isn’t the initial occurrence involving celebrities drifting on Southwest. Last year, actor-director Kevin Smith was booted from a moody after the airline told him he was too vast to safely occupy on seat. And just weeks ago, Green Day thespian Billie Joe Armstrong said he was private from a moody because his pants sagged too low.
