Kevin Smith 'Too Fat' to Fly Southwest

Kevin Smith's most famous role is a guy who rarely speaks. But he's got a lot to say – much of it profane – after being kicked off a Southwest Air flight because he didn't fit comfortably into the seat.

"You [messed] with the wrong sedentary processed-foods eater!" Smith, whose next film, Cop Out, comes out Feb. 26, posted on Twitter.

It was one of many Tweets recounting the actor/director's humiliating expulsion Saturday from the Oakland-to-Burbank, Calif. flight. Southwest said in a statement airline officials had called Smith to offer their "heartfelt apologies," but also stated his removal was for the "safety and comfort of all customers."

Smith, 39, originally purchased two tickets "as he's been known to do when traveling Southwest," the airline noted, but when he decided to fly standby on an earlier flight, only one seat remained. Although he had been seated, he was asked to leave.

"If a customer cannot comfortably lower the armrest and infringes on a portion of another seat, a customer seated adjacent would be very uncomfortable and a timely exit from the aircraft in the event of an emergency might be compromised if we allow a cramped, restricted seating arrangement," Southwest said.

Smith, who played Silent Bob in his Clerks movies and who has battled his weight for years – "I know I'm fat," he confesses – was given a $100 voucher and arrived in Burbank on a later flight. But he was in no mood to accept an apology.

"I broke no regulation, offered no 'safety risk' (what, was I gonna roll on a fellow passenger?)" he Tweeted. "I saw someone bigger than me on THAT flight! But I wasn't about to throw a fellow Fatty under the plane as I'm being profiled. But he & I made eye contact, & he was like 'Please don't tell...'"

After landing in Burbank, Smith wrote, "Don't worry: wall of the plane was opened & I was airlifted out while Richard Simmons supervised."

Smith added that while the ordeal was embarrassing, his "Jersey Girl training" (the 2004 flop starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez) was helping him cope.

Heh. Way to parlay it into $10,000,000 worth of advertising, Smith. Very savvy.

Saw a story on it on Night Line. They interviewed a fat chick who says that Kevin was in the right, and fat people are oppressed. Then, they interviewed a skinny chick who said Southwest was in the right, and that fat people are a danger to society. Talk about your extremes.

Attention fat people: If you don't want to be singled out and embarrassed, lose weight.

That being said, Southwest was totally in the wrong to let him board, stow his luggage and THEN kick him off. That was a dick move. Besides, he bought the two seats because he knows he's fat.

Better question is why isn't he flying first class? Dude's got money.

He had bought two tickets on a later flight. He decided to go on an earlier standby flight that only had one seat left.

Nope. He shouldn't have flown Southwest. I mean, if you're buying TWO tickets on Southwest, doesn't that kinda defeat the purpose of trying to save money by flying Southwest?

Still a dick move to let him on and THEN kick him off. I can understand WHY they did it, but they shouldn't have let him on in the first place. Would have avoided this whole clusterfuck.

I fly Southwest just about every time I fly and I'm 6'2" 210 lbs...and I feel like I'm too fucking big to be flying and I'm not fat.

I can only imagine how it feels to be 300+ trying to fit in those small ass seats.

It is super uncomfortable sitting next to someone you don't know when you are pretty tall...I'm like all in their grill...long flights are very unpleasant.

If you take up two seats, purchase two seats. If not, get the fuck off the plane until you can fit. Same with movie seats, and any other place that your general laziness hinders a business and it's other customers.

Furthermore, if you are obese because of laziness, lack of motivation, and general overeating and neglect of your personal hygiene, you do not deserve disability benefits. You do not deserve to park closer to building entrances for no other reason that it enables your lack of exercise and encourages you to remain sedentary, in addition to the fact that you are not disabled - you are addicted.

If food addicts deserve benefits, then alcoholics and drug addicts deserve them as well.

I know personally if I had trouble fitting in one seat on an airline I would buy two tickets...like I said...I hate flying Southwest or even on any airline because of my height...and I'm not really even that tall...I wish I had the money I'd buy a whole row for myself...I have to fly to South Carolina this Saturday and it's going to be brutal.

If I weighed 300+ lbs. I'd buy two tickets for myself or I'd drive.

A little, yes. My own father is overweight and has dealt with obesity issues when he was younger.

I don't dislike overweight people; I could afford to lose some weight myself. However, I am not ignorant enough to demand benefits at the detriment of others when it is my own laziness that caused the issue. How selfish that would be.

Just should have skipped the "stand by" flight, I guess... if two seats weren't available. Or crack open the wallet and pay first class on another airline. I'm sure he can afford it.

The airline should have seats that can fit a bell curve of people, to be considered fair. If you are within that population, and are uncomfortable, don't fly their airline if you don't want to.

But if it is obvious that you can't fit because of your reasons caused by yourself, then how can you bitch?

If the height is an issue, or you are naturally large enough to not fit, well then benefits should be made available to you.

I agree with everything except the stupid disclaimer. That crap is completely unnecessary. If somebody has to invoke the "but I have a thyroid condition" card to make you feel small then they probably don't have a thyroid condition at all. They're just lazy like the rest of us.

well Southwest doesn't have assigned seating on their flights...and if I was the guy that ended up having to sit next to the obese 400 lb. guy who only bought 1 ticket (not saying he's that fat but I'm being extreme to make a point) I'd be upset and part of me would want a freaking refund at the end of my flight...

I had a 4 hour flight to Vegas a year ago or so and sat next to my roommate and we were literally sitting on top of one another (or so it seemed)...and he's 5'9 220 and I'm 6'2 210...

I could only imagine being crammed up next to a 400 lb. fatty...that would be a miserable, miserable experience...

It's like wearing a speedo to a public pool and being that fat...it's like some people let their appearances so out of control they just stop caring and don't care about anyone else either...

Eh, I probably am. I work in an office building where these obese ladies pull right up front all the time and get these sweet ass spots when the rest of us have to park far away.

These same grouchy bitches smoke on the floor above ours, and when we go out our back exit, 10 times out of 10 there are at least two or three standing on the fire escape, smoking and bullshitting. The fire escape is made of a grated metal pattern, and when they smoke, rather than place their butts and ash in the proper container, which is RIGHT NEXT TO THEM and they LEAN ON IT when they smoke, they drop them.

They drop them on us as we leave, and I have had a nice shirt ruined by one of these fat cunts, and myself and my coworkers are constantly dodging their butts (ha). I've gotten into more than a few heated, yet professional conversations with these bitches.

In summation, the general laziness pisses me off, and I am disgusted by the sense of entitlement and rudeness that is often associated with people who fit this description.

My thing is the Walmart carts. Whenever I had my bulging disc in my back and could barely walk, I refused to use one. Why? I'm overweight (not morbidly obese), and I didn't want people thinking I was using one for that reason. Instead, I limped all over Wally World...lol.

Well, fuck 'em if they judge you. You had/have an actual reason to use one of those things, and you have every right to do so! That's what I am saying. There is a difference between need and general laziness. You had a need. You actually declining to use one further validates the reason why they shouldn't.

Yeah, if i was super hungry after a night of drinking, or after a long workout or something, I could hammer down one of those. I'd be full as hell, but I could do some damage.

But I am not a 5'3" woman in her forties on a lunch break on a work day. At least the Pepsi was diet, though. All two liters of it.

Monday 15 February 2010 @ 8:18 pm
Lots of folks still telling me to stop crying and lose weight - as if that’s what this was all about. Easier to tell the lie about the whiney Fatso than the truth that someone at Southwest fucked up. “Sure, someone fucked up, Lardo” You’re saying. “You and your fat gut! This is YOUR fault because you’re fat!”
Once again: I know I’m fat. The point of all this? I’m not too fat for Southwest Air, yet someone deemed me so. *sigh*
Then, suddenly? A glimmer of hope: a little after 12 noon (roughly 48 hrs after being deemed Too Fat To Fly), Linda (a rep from Southwest Airlines) called my house.
Very sweet, warmly compassionate and apologetic, Linda assured me they’d been trying to track me down for at least a day, but my cell phone was indicating a full voicemail box.
First, there was the serious “Mea culpa” - very sincere, very meaningful, from an actual individual who didn’t then spend the next two paragraphs telling me it was still all my fault because I’m fat.
In fact, Linda admitted (without urging) that the whole situation was handled really badly, and that the blog write-up was in error.
Linda told me that, before I got anywhere near the plane (remember: I was hoping to get on standby), they were having a space issue on board with another passenger who’d purchased two seats, and they were having a problem moving already-seated passengers to accommodate this person. Enter me, who - Linda admitted - WAS NOT A PROBLEM. She fully acknowledged that I wasn’t bounced by the Pilot… BECAUSE THE PILOT PROBABLY DIDN’T EVEN SEE ME.
According to Linda, with the melee surrounding boarding and finding a second seat for the other passenger, the Pilot called for a quick settlement of any outstanding issues so that they might take off. And even though I was already planted in my arm-rest lowerable, seat-belt-buckleable seat, I got the hook.
So the Pilot DIDN’T bounce me because I couldn’t fit in the seat. In fact, it sounds like the Pilot had very little to do with bouncing me at all. And Linda said she just found this out today, as they gather info from all involved.
But if that’s the case, then who made that call to yank me? Someone had to actually point a finger and say “Him. He goes.” And not only that, but they then stood behind a fabrication that I was being ejected because I was too fat for my seat.
Regardless, I thanked Linda and told her she was the nicest Southwestern employee I’d met in the last 43 hrs. And then, I asked when Southwest was going to update their blog, to which she said soon, and we hung-up pleasantly. And as pleasant as Linda was, clearly the notion of me going on Larry King scared the shit out of somebody over there.
I was very nice but very firm/clear with Linda: Southwestern needs to make this right. And “right” is Southwestern falling on their sword over a situation THEY CREATED and continued to mismanage for nearly 48hrs.
So I swore to Linda, up and down “Get me a document to sign, and I’ll swear on my child’s life and penalty of all I own that I’ll never sue your Airlines. But just PUT THE FUCKING TRUTH OUT THERE THAT I’M NOT TOO FAT TO FLY, AND THAT THIS WAS ALL AN UNFORTUNATE ERROR ON SOUTHWESTERN’S PART.”
This is the piece Linda wrote. (http://www.blogsouthwest.com/blog/my-conversation-with-kevin-smith-0)
She called me a little bit ago to see if I’d read the piece. I put her on hold, quickly read it, then got back on the horn.
“Linda - there’s nothing about me not being Too Fat To Fly,” I said.
“The people around you said they had to lean over to make room for you,” Linda offered.
“Linda, they didn’t! The older lady was leaning against the window like she was gonna nap, and the lady to my left was already leaning toward the aisle. I would never pick a seat that might possibly make me look even fatter because I don’t fit in it or something.”
“That’s the report I have,” she continued, then sighed and added “This is so embarrassing to talk about.”
“Wait - what people around me?” I asked.
“The people seated next to you.”
“You guys went to their houses and interviewed them?”
“No.”
“Then where’d that statement come from?”
“Others people around you.”
“Linda, there was nobody but me, the two ladies, and Suzanne. Are you telling me this is Suzanne’s report?”
“The report we received said the ladies were leaning away from you.”
“They were already leaning when I sat down! They didn’t lean because of me! I even asked them both if I was a problem. But you said you took their statements, and now you’re saying they weren’t interviewed at all. You said we’d get to the bottom of who made the decision to boot me, since it WASN’T the Pilot.”
And Linda apologized and pointed out the blog apologies for putting me on and taking me off the plane, as well as the refunded fares.
“But the last paragraph is still all about your two seat rule. By including it, you guys are still saying I was Too Fat To Fly - or at least NOT correcting it. You even say ‘You’re not here to debate the decision the Employees made.’ But when we spoke, you told me they were wrong, and THAT’S why I was happy and ready to drop all this. I don’t want your money, I just want you to put in print what you told me: that I was grabbed because I was the last guy on, not because I didn’t fit with the arm rests down, or because I couldn’t buckle the seat belt. Because I did. And we both know this.”
I feel like a broken record with that stupid “But I could buckle and fit” shit. Pathetic, right? Grasping at any dignity straws. But that’s what you do when you’re kinda stripped of your dignity.
I could hear it in her voice: the sad frustration. Somewhere between the two phone calls, the bounty that was hinted at got a lot smaller. And while the apology is a little deeper now and more sincerely-worded than it was in the initial “apology” blog (thank you, Linda), it still infers that I need two seats to fly on Southwest Airlines.
I begged her to just put the truth in the about me and the seat belt and arm rest - at least admit you guys were wrong: that I wasn’t Too Fat To Fly. And while in phone call #1 it seemed promising, it didn’t happen. There was some standard corp-speak about how they’re going to examine their “Person of Size” policy, and how they know it needs change. I sincerely hope it does. That shit with the Girl on the flight was just heartbreaking and shameful.
But to be honest, I was looking for a little exoneration so I didn’t have to keep exonerating myself. And while Linda was kind and respectful, if they’re gonna stick with this “Well… he needed two seats…” shit, then we’re just back to square one.
You guys screwed up, SWA; why’s it so hard to own up to it? Now I’m gonna carry this Too Fat To Fly shit around like herpes for the rest of my life, and it was never even true.
So, Linda: I appreciate the effort you made, the time you spent with me on the phone, and the work you put into this. You, too, were a reasonable cat during our conversation.
But wrapping up with a repeating of that 2 seat policy (the one THAT HAS NO BEARING ON MY CASE) is a reminder that you guys haven’t learned anything: you’re still blaming it on the Fatty. Still, you tried. Thank you for that, Linda - and for being human.
Southwest, I appreciate you refunding my airfare. But if you’re not gonna admit I wasn’t Too Fat To Fly, then I’ll cover it.
But, folks? Tomorrow? Let’s Tweet about other stuff, shall we? This is starting to taste mediciney and fruitless.

I totally side with Southwest on this and am really happy they have a size policy. I already liked them before this incident but this makes me want to fly with them even more.

He should fly US Airways. They don't have such a policy. I know, I got stuck on a cross country flight next some fatass whose blubber hung over the arm rest and whose thighs and cankles came half way into my seating area. Complaints to the flying whores went unaddressed.

Once i saw a bitch in that office eating an entire rotisserie chicken. A ****ING ENTIRE CHICKEN FOR LUNCH.

The same ****ing meal intended for a family of four at dinnertime. For ****ing lunch. Washing it down with a two liter of Diet ****ing Pepsi.

Unbelievable. Just..... unbelievable.


Diet Pepsi?

She must have been trying to lose some weight.

I'm surprised they haven't started making you fill out height and weight paperwork when you buy your ticket. At any rate, I've sat next to people who weren't fat, but they were definitely big and those seats aren't big enough.

They just need to make an oversized only airline already. That's obviously where things are going.

Yes, fat people should be made to buy two seats, if they're only fat 'cause they want to be.

Yes, airline seats are too small already. I'm 6'4" and 250# and I feel like a piece of f**king origami every time I try to fly.

Yes, Kevin Smith is an attention whore who is using this to his own publicity benefit.

(BTW, last time I flew Southwest, I thought their seats were actually bigger than other airliners'. How fat IS Kevin Smith now?!?)

The obvious solution is to start charging people by the volume they take up, and have bench seats with adjustable armrests. Skinny people pay less and get smaller seat-width, larger people pay more and get larger seat-width.

The next wave will be we all have to step on a scale and there will be a charge for our weight. They already are all Nazi on bags, passengers are next. maybe it will be something like $2 a pound to fly Southwest

That's a good idea. Why should I have to subsidize some fat person's ticket?

Big Dog
02-16-2010, 12:30 PM
Heh...whenever the thread involves fat people, I always want to :popcorn:. Uh...oops. :)

Here is the solution. Take every person (and their luggage, carry-ons, etc.) and put them on a scale. Charge by the pound...but if you do that, you damn well better make sure you have a comfortable seat for not only your 'normal' sized people (whatever that is) but for your big customers as well who are paying a premium for the space.

People do need to get off their asses and drop weight, but lets face it, most airplane's seats are designed for a 120lb woman. I'm 6'-3" and I have to use a "wide stance" because my knees are jammed into the seat in front of me. When the ahole in front of me decides he needs to recline to take a fuggin 2 hour nap it makes it even worse. I find myself having to put the Skymall magazine between my knees and the seat to help diffuse the pressure.

Fuck airplane travel, I wouldn't do it at all if my job didn't demand it. These assholes know that many have no choice but to do their business travel on airplanes.

I was talking to a coworker about this coming back from lunch yesterday. Another coworker was like, "Who is Kevin Smith?" I said, "Silent Bob?" She still had no idea. The other coworker and I started naming off movies he directed/was in. She had not seen ANY of them! I took her the three I own today, so she could borrow them and watch them. Dogma, Clerks, and Clerks 2.
