Billie Joe Armstrong Kicked off Flight for Wearing Baggy Pants
Flight attendants on a scheduled trip from Oakland to Burbank, CA were adamant that [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Green Day[/lastfm] frontman Billie Joe Armstrong pull up his pants. When he refused to follow their request, he was booted from the plane!
Upon entering the plane with a companion, Armstrong was stopped by airline workers and told to wear his pants higher.
According to eyewitnesses, Armstrong fired back and asked them if there were, “better things to do than worry about that?
Apparently not, because when he refused a second time he was escorted off the plane.
His Tweet following the incident:
With the 10th anniversary of 9/11 approaching, its easy to see why airline officials are on high alert. However, when did baggy slacks become a matter of national security?
Although he was partially inconvenienced, Billie Joe boarded the next flight no problem after fully cooperating with the airline by, you know, PULLING UP HIS PANTS!
