September 1, 2011

On this day in 2011, while boarding a Southwest flight from Oakland to Burbank, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong is forced off the flight after giving some lip to a flight attendant who asked him to pull up his sagging pants. Armstrong doesn’t take kindly to the request, and eventually he and his traveling companion are booted from the flight. Armstrong takes to Twitter, writing, “Just got kicked off a southwest flight because my pants sagged too low!” The tweet is quickly re-tweeted by his followers, forcing Southwest to release a statement apologizing for the incident.
