Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong was kicked of a plane in the US for refusing to pull up his trousers.
According to reports, the Green Day frontman was trying to find his seat on the Southwest Airlines flight when an attendant approached him and asked him to hoik up his low-slung jeans.
A witness said Armstrong responded: “Don't you have better things to do than worry about that?”
To which the flight attendant replied: “Pull your pants up or you're getting off the plane.”
"I'm just trying to get to my fucking seat," was the singer’s parting shot before he was thrown off the plane.
Unsurprisingly, Armstrong was quick to make his feelings known, tweeting his 171,000 followers: "Just got kicked off a southwest flight because my pants sagged too low! What the fuck? No joke."
Green Day fans have been showing their support on Twitter. Ruth_A_Buzzi tweeted: “Green Day lead singer kicked off an airline for wearing pants too low? Be fair now, and kick off a few nerds with their pants up too high.”
A Southwest Airline spokesman soon sprung into action, apologising to the Green Day singer and putting him on the next flight.
It’s not the fist time a celeb has been kicked off an American airline for wearing their trousers too low. Earlier this year football player Deshon Marman was removed from a flight for the same reason.
In August, actor Gerard Depardieu was thrown off a plane for urinating on the carpet of a plane as he tried to piss in a bottle on a flight from Paris to London.
