(Newser) – Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong learned about airline security the hard way: He got booted off his Southwest Airlines flight this week because he refused to hike up his baggy pants, reports San Francisco's ABC 7. When a flight attendant asked him to comply before takeoff, he responded, "Don't you have better things to do than worry about that?" He and his traveling partner were eventually taken off the plane.
"Just got kicked off a southwest flight because my pants sagged too low! What the f**k? No joke!" Armstrong tweeted Thursday. Southwest followed up with an apologetic tweet to him, and Armstrong was able to catch the next flight to Burbank.

Really Southwest? I thought you prided yourself on being an airline of the people? No charge for bags. Cheap flights anywhere. No leg room. Everything anyone could want in an airline. So now they kick off Billy Joe for having saggy pants? Rappers must not fly Southwest then. I love his reported response to the stewardess too. Don't you fucks have things to worry about like bombs? Are my pant legs really a national security threat? What the fuck man. I thought Southwest was better than that.
