Kevin Smith was ready to fly from Oakland to Burbank and was already seated when approached by a Southwest attendant named Suzanne who “told me Captain Leysath deemed me a ’safety risk.’”
Smith had flown out to Oakland on a Southwest Airlines flight, and later flew out on one as well.
Kevin wrote on his Twitter page:
“I know I’m fat,” the 39-year-old wrote via Twitter. “But was Captain Leysath [sic] really justified in throwing me off a flight for which I was already seated?”
“I’m way fat,” Smith tweeted, “But I’m not THERE just yet. 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’.”
Smith said Southwest offered him a $100 voucher, and eventually flew on a Southwest flight despite the incident. But Kevin Smith is still really pissed according to his expletive-filled posts on Twitter.
