“Cop Out” director Kevin Smith was removed from a Southwest Airlines flight Saturday (Feb. 13) for being a “safety risk” — a civil way of saying he was too fat to fly.
Smith was jetting from Oakland to Burbank when, according to his tweets, a Southwest attendant approached him in his seat and “told me Captain Leysath deemed me a ‘safety risk.'”
“Wanna tell me I’m too wide for the sky?” Smith posted on his Twitter account. “Totally cool, but fair warning folks: If you look like me, you may be ejected from Southwest Air.”
After the whole debacle, he posted this cheek-blown photo with the caption: “Look how fat I am on your plane! Quick! Throw me off!”
The acclaimed “Clerks” and Chasing Amy” director, aka “Silent Bob,”
added that SWA did offer him a $100 voucher for his troubles. He also
wrote that a woman seated next to him was also “chastised for not
buying an additional seat.”
