It is being reported that Billie Joe Armstrong, the leader singer of Green Day was ejected from a Southwest Airlines flight for wearing jeans so low that they revealed his underpants.
The incident took place at Oakland Airport on flight bound for Burbank. Mr Armstrong is said to have boarded the flight late and was told by an air stewardess to pull his trousers up. Mr Armstrong responded “Don’t you have better things to do than worry about that?” and it was shortly after this point that he was escorted from the flight.
It is suggested that when Southwest became aware of who Mr Armstrong was, they offered him a seat on a later flight at no additional cost.
What do you think? Should Billie Joe pull his trousers up on a plane or should Southwest get with the times?
