At least one person benefited from Tiger Woods' infidelity scandal.
Kevin Smith, who was booted off a Southwest plane last year for being "too fat" around the same time Tiger's scandal broke, says he will "always owe" the golfer for deflecting the controversy.
The American public could have been worrying about Kevin Smith's weight, but instead was immediately drawn to the sensational media coverage of Tiger's many mistresses.
Recently, Kevin looked back on the Southwest incident and shared how grateful he remains for Tiger Woods, saying:
"It was really bad [and] disconcerting. And that fake plastic heart in their logo, I thought was just absolute bull– and I lost all faith in humanity. I sat there for three days going, 'Life will never be the same, I'm humiliated, there's nowhere to go, nothing to do. I can't retain my cool, my credibility's shot. How am I supposed to be that Kevin Smith if I'm that dude who just got booted off the plane for being fat? Three days later Tiger Woods came out and was like, 'I cheated on my wife,' and nobody cared I was fat anymore. I love Tiger Woods! I don't care about golf, but I'll always owe him."
LOL! We're happy Tiger's troubles weren't in vain!
We're also happy that the plane incident may have served as a wake-up call for the movie director because he went on to lose 65 pounds! We hope he's able to keep it off too!
