Kevin Smith was kicked off a Southwest plane after being told he was too fat to fly and a flight risk.

Kevin was flying out of Oakland back to Burbank and was already seated when he was kicked off the plane.  Kevin took to his Twitter account and sent off a slew of attacks on the airline and the embarrassment that followed. 

They did offer Kevin a $100 dollar voucher for his trouble and Kevin said they chastised the women next to him as well for not buying an extra seat even though Kevin said he was not a risk. 

Kevin took another Southwest flight out of there and pointed out he flew out to Oakland and flew back to Burbank so does not understand what the pilots deal is.

Kevin will be addressing this on his podcast tonight.  Wonder how soon until they start weighing people before they get on a flight or ask for your weight description when purchasing tickets.  Bet it happens soon.  But if you have a bomb in your underpants, hey, step right up and take your seat.-Dr.FB

Ironically enough, Southwest responded to Kevin on their Twitter account  saying they were sorry for his experience.
