    Green Day Singer Loses Airline Seat Due to Baggy Pants

    "American Idiot" Singer Catches The Following Flight

    An ABC7 news producer who was on the same flight told the station that a flight attendant approached Armstrong as the plane was getting ready to take off and asked him to hike his pants higher. The producer, Cindy Qiu, says Armstrong initially responded by asking the attendant if there weren't "better things to do than worry about that?"
    Southwest spokesman Brad Hawkins released a statement saying Armstrong was allowed onto the next flight to Burbank and had told a customer relations agent who contacted him he had no further complaints.
    For me personally, I think it's great that people have pride in their asses. I just do not want it in my face, thank you very much. And not only do I want to see ANY part of your behind, I do not want to see your undergarments, either. I am sure that are highly fashionable and your fashion sense is among the best in the world, but some things you can keep to yourself....
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    Well I personally am just shocked that anything a member of Green Day does would end up as news.

    First off, triple_toe: Green Day is relevant. Have you heard of the musical American Idiot?

    Secondly, he did nothing wrong, and I am shocked that PeterG isn't upset about this. We should ALL be upset about this. Does this mean that my New Balance sneakers could cause me to lose my seat next time? Flight attendants have too much power. If I were the customer, I would not rest until the flight attendant were in the unemployment line. And yes, there would be a lawsuit if for no other reason, to get this air mattress fired.

    There's an American Idiot musical? Well, I guess if Spider Man can be a musical...

    In all seriousness though, this is a little ridiculous. At first I thought this would be about security getting in a snit because the baggy pants could possibly conceal weapons or something, but sitting down on the flight? If his ass/boxers were sticking out, how would anyone even know? He's in his seat! Unless his pants were so far down the *front* of his boxer shorts were in plain sight

    I don't have a problem with this. I think the "sagging" trend is disgusting and should be outlawed in public places.

    I find I'm always waiting to see them drop. I want to know if you trip over them.

    Fortunately, he should never have trouble with any Wal-Mart employees. Because everyone can show off their stuff at Wal-Mart.

    Well, not all of us were blessed with enough booty to keep our pants from sagging

    Is there an specific regulation in Southwest policy about saggy pants? I haven't seen mention of that in any of the articles I've read on the subject. I was on a Southwest flight not that long ago with a girl with workout shorts on that were so short you could see the bottom part of her butt cheeks hanging out.

    I don't know how saggy his pants were, but is that really enough to get you kicked off a plane? Maybe the real issue is that he argued about it, but I agree with Jayar that flight attendants have too much power nowadays.

    My guess is that he was walking around for the hour or two before the flight with his backside showing and various people complained to staff, who had to deal with those complaints. Seems to me it's doubtful that he walked straight to the waiting area, sat in one seat until boarding time, when he quickly tried to walk to onto the plane. "If you've got it, flaunt it" is not always good advice...

    I am shocked, but in a different way than you, it seems!

    Your footwear causes the majority of your behind to pop out of your clothing??

    Well I think the jeans around your ankles look is terrible, but preventing someone boarding an aircraft because of it? Really?

    Yeah, there's a big difference between "fashion trends I dislike" and "clothing that should get you removed from an air plane". The former is a long list. The later? Not so much. I seriously doubt that costumers were complaining that his pants were baggy unless they complain about half the teenage males in the country. And to be honest, who cares if you can see his underwear? Do they kick every girl off the plane whose thong hangs out when she bends over?

    I agree that the airline employees have better things to do with their time than to reprimand the way someone wears his pants, like, ahem, flight security.

    IIRC Green Day has a clothing contract with Dior Homme, whose line most definitely does not include sagging-butt pants I guess Billie Joe was travelling on a day off....

    You can't fly with saggy pant, but apparently it's Ok if you're wearing only women's underwear.

    I actually know a few police officers who are glad some of the young kids wear baggy pants because they can't run very far when the police catch them stealing or doing whatever it is they get in trouble for. They either can't run or they trip and fall.

    I agree, but I don't think that Billie Joe Armstrong wears his pants around his ankles, which makes this even more ridiculous.

    I'm also wondering, doesn't she have more important things to worry about.


    I'm also wondering, isn't Billie Joe getting a little old to be wearing his pants like this?
