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!!
"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.
