Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell can now add “peacemaker” to his list of great qualities.

Sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com that Cornell was spotted last night at the Alaska Airlines lounge in the Seattle airport defending a passenger who was called “a queer” by another passenger.

Our source reveals:

“Chris Cornell was spotted breaking up a fight in the Alaska Airlines lounge in the Seattle airport last night. When a guy in a business suit called another man a queer after he overheard him make a pro-Obama statement, Cornell vocally stepped up in the packed lounge and slammed the guy for making anti-gay comments.”

Nice to see Chris help defend someone who was being bullied!!

According to a passenger in the lounge, Cornell said:

"You're a prick. You deliberately called him a queer to make him feel uncomfortable in front of a lot of people."

We’re told security then came and the man in the suit who made the original comments was asked to leave.

The other passenger and some Alaska reps thanked Cornell for his help and intervention.

Just another reason why we're liking Chris Cornell even more right now.

    You know I think most stars go out there and donate a lot of money to charity and do things like that, but I think it says a lot more when they show their support in their every day lives. This is a perfect example of the kind of change we need. I like him. :)

    Truly a sad story. Where are the people to stand with the man in the business suit ? If I would have been there I would have stood with him, and told Cornell and the other guy alot worse things that queer. Anyone who voted for that asshole deserves any backlash they get!! And I would tell the same thing to that asshole if he ever came close to me, ’cause I would never willingly go near that piece of shit.

    Dear Perez,I was actually the passenger who got harassed at the Alaska Airlines Lounge. Mr. Cornell was amazing but the details of the story are a little wrong. Contact me for actual details.
