HA! Well it's about time!

After two days of silence regarding the JetBlue diva Steven Slater's meltdown during a flight, the airline has released this statement on their website's blog, Blue Tales!

It reads:

Sometimes the weird news is about us…

It wouldn’t be fair for us to point out absurdities in other corners of the industry without acknowledging when it’s about us. Well, this week’s news certainly falls into that category. Perhaps you heard a little story about one of our flight attendants? While we can’t discuss the details of what is an ongoing investigation, plenty of others have already formed opinions on the matter. Like, the entire Internet. (The reason we’re not commenting is that we respect the privacy of the individual. People can speak on their own behalf; we won’t do it for them.)

While this episode may feed your inner Office Space, we just want to take this space to recognize our 2,300 fantastic, awesome and professional Inflight Crewmembers for delivering the JetBlue Experience you’ve come to expect of us.

You can’t make this shtick up.

Laaaame! That's the best these bitches could come up with?

We're glad Steven Slater got out of that shiz! He's far too fabulous for their bland political-correctness!

LOLs! Thoughts??

    I hope this crybaby sees the inside of a cell for a little while. Maybe then he'll realize that everyone has jobs that are shitty, and adults suck it up and get the job done.

    I LOVE this man. I wish I could have been at the bottom of the slide to give him a high five and split a beer.



  3. 3

    That is a brilliant press release. It covers everything that needed to be said by them and it shows great intelligence and humour. It is certainly more intelligent and funny than anything you have written Perez.

    This guy is a hero to a lot of people. How many of us have fantasized about being able to just tell some asshole to piss off. I hate that he ruined his career but that bitch deserved it. And she should be charged with something even if its just disorderly conduct.



  5. 5

    I think this is a fabulous response. What do you want, a press release of management-speak blather that doesn't really say anything?



  6. 6

    WOW Hero? Really?

    I cannot condone this guys behavior.

    Sure we have all fantasized about telling off an ignorant manager,boss, coworker or customer but there is that voice of reason that says don't do it. Rewarding Slater by branding him a hero is an insult to the true meaning of heroism.

    Imagine if we all acted that way?



  7. 7

    Some PR firm is helping them because they were probably receiving hate mail from yesterday's letter condemning the incident.



  8. 8

    I can see where he was coming from. I've been on the shit end of some seriously demented customers and had to hold back from doing anything about it. Looking back on it now I would have been better off just doing what he did instead of taking it up the ass all the time. 99% of retail customers act like complete assholes because they know they can get away with abusing somebody.



  9. 9

    They seem to have a reasonable PR Director but it's still wrong that the passenger was not charged as well.



  10. 10

    Wow - why not stop being a cheap airline instead?

    you gotta give it to this guy, in this day and age when people sit behind their desks afraid to get fired, it really takes balls to stop taking the abuse and just fucking quitting. I really hate when companies and customers alike keep on abusing the american worker. good for you steven. I am sure this will open more doors for you.

    many many years ago I worked the drive thru window at a fcuking fast food place and my manager was such a twat her name was priscilla rodriguez (a little munchkin with a thick accent) and some customers complained about me because they were acting like assholes and I refused to deal with them and she made me apologize to them. I was so pissed and unfortunately at that time I really needed that pathetic paycheck. but looking back I wish I had gotten a coke and thrown it at her face and done the same to the customers. Years later I have had way better jobs in the entertainment industry and there are still assholes, you just cant escape them. I guess what are you going to do, throw a drink on the whole worlds face.

    He is too fabulous? Please Mario, this whinny ass baby has/had to regard for the safety of the crew on board the plan or on the ground when he deployed the emergency chute. I know the passenger was not right, but if Mr. Whinny ass man is going to quit, be a man and quit the right way. Now, he is looking a time and a fine. Nice going Mr. Fabulous



  14. 14

    Man, Gunther from Friends was really pissed. Well, he never did get Rachel.



  15. 15

    I think he has balls and I can totally see myself doing the same thing in that situation. That being said, I still think there should be consequences. You can't just go freaking out an entire flight, stealing beer, and jumping out a safety exit…. there are rules in place that need to be respected for the safety of everyone involved.



  16. 16

    Perez, have you ever had a real job?



  17. 17

    I think he's kind of cool, but how long before he has his own Reality Show?



  18. 18

    In North Philly, we would have first kicked dat passenger azzzzzz, took the airlines best champagne and glasses, glided down chute and fingered the entire plane as we walked away.



  19. 19

    What about the tool that caused the whole mess? Where is he? He needs to be charged with violating FAA rules



  20. 20

    I love the press release - made me chuckle. A fitting response to a STUPID situation. That someone can get famous for being such a crybaby is beyond me. Sign of the times I guess - another good for nothing, famous for no reason idiot to hear about ! And of course he's gay, so Perez will put him up on a pedestal - so, so predictable.



  21. 21

    How different it would be if this guy weren't gay, huh Pervez.



  22. 22

    the movies make this behavior ideal but in reality u get screwed. As a corporate girl I have to say that I think he is a hero here. Im sure the law will screw him and he's up for a life of psuedo reality tv fame (NY based) but I think he should be HONORED

    It's not right! His example speaks to the rest of the world!



  23. 23

    This guy is not a hero. Come on people. A hero is someone who does something difficult because it's the right thing to do….. NOT flipping out on a daily basis due to the assholes you encounter is more like a hero.. this guy is simply weak.



  24. 24

    I am in awe of the possible 7 years of prison. Lindsey gets 13 days for kidnapping, coke and DUI. What a world we live in!!!!



  25. 25

    This guy is a hero to everyone. Don't deny it. This guy had the balls to do what everyone of us can't do. So all of you who are complaining about this. F U.



  26. 26

    Re: Bearish – He's so NOT gay. When they sent the 50 cops to his house to arrest him, they barged in on him having sexual relations …… with a woman. Now I know that 99 percent of JetBlue stewards are gay, this guy isn't, or so his ex-wife claims. And to #10; JetBlue is an awesome airline!



  27. 27

    Its a good press release about the situation… I bet the CEOs were laughing about it. I think Steve even though he's probably fired will be well off. He wont serve jail time since its his first offense and seriously who would want this to go to trial.



  28. 28

    Huh = lame snowjob.



  29. 29

    While I think the flight attendant was completely wrong, Jet Blue's response is totally smart-ass…"…while it may feed your inner Office Space…" In essence, they're being smug ass-holes and looking down their corporate noses at all us "little people" that they think they can exist without. It's just like those Wall Street fucks who said out-loud that the new banking regulations can "…kiss our ass." These people know they're untouchable and they want you to know it, too, in the most smug way possible.

    He's not really a traditional hero, but more of an anti-hero.



  31. 31

    I just don't understand that the woman that slamed a door in his head, that there a no consequences for her.

    He was pushed too far and broke, we've all been there. He was verbally and physically assaulted by an unruly passenger, which I'm guessing happens to flight crews on a fairly regular basis. They should drop the charges and let him get on with his life.



  33. 33

    Some people just NEVER grow up. As an adult, you can't conduct yourself and put others in danger because you are a "bleepin'" basket case. Perez, I must say, the more I read your opinion, the more I get disappointed. It DOESN'T matter what a person does as long as they are gay..you're behind them! Re-read the story and tell me that YOU are behind this fool….he could have killed someone. I hope his stupid, drama ass goes to jail for the ENTIRE 7 years!



  34. 34

    "what would happen if we all acted that way?"

    If you ask me, if more people got a little more rude with people when they are very rude to us, maybe the customer would think twice before berating workers. Clearly this didn't work out too well for Steve Slater, but I totally see where he's coming from.

    Anyone who's ever worked in the service industry knows that sometimes (rarely- it has to be a pretty bad situation, but still…) the customer deserves to be cursed at- not everyone is going to take a mountain of crap from customers, and at a certain point, they shouldn't have to.
