Wow. This is as ridiculous as it is sad!!
Earlier today L Word actress Leisha Hailey was escorted off her Southwest Airlines flight because she was
a threat to safety KISSING HER GIRLFRIEND!!
Before the couple was asked to leave the plane a flight attendant told them Southwest was a "family" airline.
Guess no one told her that families show affection! OR that refusing to give service to costumers because they're openly gay is DISCRIMINATION!!
After the women were forced to exiting the plane the couple started tweeted their frustrations. Leisha's girlfriend, Camila Grey, started it off saying,
"So we've joined the ranks alongside @BJAofficial and @ThatKevinSmith for being kicked off an @SouthwestAir flight, this time for being gay. @SouthwestAir We didn't know intolerance and discrimination for slouchy pants, being overweight or being gay was part of your family values"
Minutes later @Leisha_Hailey shared her account of the event:
"I have been discriminated against by @SouthwestAir. Flt. attendant said that it was a "family" airline and kissing was not ok.This is an outrage. I demand a public apology by @SouthwestAir and a refund. Hate is not a family value. I will never fly this airline.
We were escorted off the plane for getting upset about the issue. @SouthwestAir endorses homophobic employees. No one made her accountable."
Now the ladies are calling for a boycott of the airline. The actress wrote:
"Since when is showing affection towards someone you love illegal? I want to know what Southwest Airlines considers as "family".
I know plenty of wonderful same sex families I would like to introduce them to. Boycott @SouthwestAir if you are gay. They don't like us."
The icing on the cake? Leisha says she has the whole insodent caught on camera!!
"Did I mention to @SouthwestAir that I have a lot of their actions recorded on audio and video? RT #boycottSouthwest #discrimination"
HA! YES! We would LOVE to see that!
This whole thing is a total embarrassment, not only for Southwest but the progression of our society.
