Kelly Osbourne Boycotting Southwest Airlines Over Lesbian Kiss Drama
Kelly Osbourne announced that she’s boycotting Southwest Airlines after the whole “lesbian kiss discrimination drama” which made headlines earlier this week. On Monday, Sept. 26, ‘L Word’ actress Leisha Hailey was kicked off a flight for what officials say were excessive PDAs with her girlfriend and Uh Huh Her bandmate Camila Grey. She quickly accused the airline of discriminating against gay people. She immediately began to tweet about the matter, calling for gay and lesbian people to boycott the air carrier.
Hailey angrily fired off tweets, posting: “Since when is showing affection towards someone you love illegal? Boycott @SouthwestAir if you are gay. They don’t like us.”
While Ozzy’s daughter is not a lesbian, she is one of the first celebs to step out in support of the actress and her actions, and of course she did so via twitter. Osbourne posted the following tweet: “Dear @SouthwestAir ur archaic thinking makes me sick! ur discrimination towards ur passengers is deplorable! i will NEVER fly southwest!”

She also posted: “America is supposed to be the land of the free and the home of the brave! so why when someone tries 2 be brave & free do u knock them down?”
Southwest has insisted that Hailey was booted from her flight because she was engaging in excessive behavior, which other passengers complained about. A statement was issued that read as follows: “Our crew, responsible for the comfort of all customers on board, approached the passengers based solely on behavior and not gender. The conversation escalated to a level that was better resolved on the ground, as opposed to in flight.”
