Green Day Singer Booted Off Flight For Fashion Faux Pas

Billie Joe Armstrong
"Just got kicked off a southwest flight because my pants sagged too low! What the f--k? No joke!" Billie Joe Armstrong (@BJAofficial) tweeted Thursday night. The Green Day front man's first tweet in 22 days confused many of his followers as they strived to find out more information.

ABC news producer, Cindy Qiu, was on the same flight and explained to the station how a Southwest flight attendant told Armstrong to pull up his pants. "Don't you have better things to do than worry about that?" Armstrong reportedly said. Qiu said the flight attendant then threatened Armstrong to pull up his pants or he's "coming off the plane."

Southwest reached out to Armstrong by tweeting, "@BJAofficial Very sorry for your experience tonight, someone from our Customer Relations Team will reach out to you to get more details."

Shortly after, the airline released in a statement that "the situation was resolved to Armstrong's satisfaction." 

Luckily for Southwest, Armstrong handled the situation a bit more maturely than Kevin Smith, who decided to ignore Southwest's attempts to reach out to him after the airline kicked the actor off a flight last year due to his weight.

We can only hope Billie Joe Armstrong writes a wonderful song about this experience.
