What’s in a Kiss?
After allegedly being kicked off of Southwest Airlines for kissing her girlfriend, L Word actress and singer of Uh-Huh Her Leisha Hailey has been taking to Twitter to air her grievances. Hailey was traveling from Baltimore to St. Louis when she says she was asked to stop kissing her gal pal Camila Gray after other passengers complained.
Southwest responded to the situation online, saying that she was reprimanded based on her behavior, not her gender. It’s alleged that her behavior was “excessive.”
Here’s what Hailey had to say on Twitter:
I have been discriminated against by @SouthwestAir. Flt. attendant said that it was a “family” airline and kissing was not ok.
This is an outrage. I demand a public apology by @SouthwestAir and a refund. Hate is not a family value. I will never fly this airline.
We were escorted off the plane for getting upset about the issue.@SouthwestAir endorses homophobic employees. No one made her accountable.
Since when is showing affection towards someone you love illegal? I want to know what Southwest Airlines considers as “family.”
I know plenty of wonderful same sex families I would like to introduce them to. Boycott @SouthwestAir if you are gay. They don’t like us.
Did I mention to @SouthwestAir that I have a lot of their actions recorded on audio and video?
