The L Word actress Leisha Hailey says she was kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight after kissing her girlfriend.
“Flight attendant said that it was a ‘family’ airline and kissing was not ok,” Hailey wrote. She and her girlfirend, fashion designer Nina Garduno, have been together since 2006.
“Hate is not a family value,” Hailey tweeted after the incident.
For their part, Southwest Airlines issued the following statement: “Initial reports indicate that we received several passenger complaints characterizing the behavior as excessive. Our crew, responsible for the comfort of all Customers on board, approached the passengers based solely on behavior and not gender. In fact, they were even wearing special glasses made in Japan that only allow them to see behavior and not gender. We regret any circumstance where a passenger does not have a positive experience on Southwest and we are ready to work directly with the passengers involved to offer our heartfelt apologies for falling short of their expectations. Additionally, we suggest all tongue-wrestling lesbians take our ‘Lipstick Love’ midnight flights in the future, which occur in giant pink airplanes suggestive of dildos. Thanks!” Full story…
