Billie the saggy bottom .

I think I wear my trousers just right but some blokes wear their trousers a little low. I have no problem with this and think it is their business how they dress. I would never refuse a passenger travel because of how they dress. It is no big deal to me if the passenger has low fitting trousers or jeans that reveal underwear or bottom cleavage.

Some staff however claim to be upset by passengers with sagging jeans. Billie Joe Armstrong, the lead singer of the band Green Day, was ejected from a plane at Oakland airport after a stewardess became upset that his jeans were “sagging” to reveal his underpants. The incident took place on a taxi-ing flight bound for Burbank, in Southern California. It prompted Armstrong to vent his frustration via Twitter. “Just got kicked-off a Southwest flight because my pants sagged too low,” he told 170,000 followers. “What the f**k? No joke!”An eye-witness, Cindy Qiu, yesterday told TV news teams that the incident, which took place last Thursday, occurred after the extravagantly-attired performer boarded the flight late. As he walked to his seat, a hostess primly asked him to pull his trousers up. “Don’t you have better things to do than worry about that?” came Armstrong’s response. Shortly afterwards, he was escorted from the aeroplane. When Southwest had become aware of exactly who Mr Armstrong is – Green Day has sold over 65 million records, and their album American Idiot swept the Grammys – they offered to re-seat him on a later flight.

Generally it is young people who wear their jeans low, a fashion I have never adopted. Billie Joe Armstrong is not a teenager trying to find a style of his own but an established 39 year old rock musician. Were Billie's underpants green? If they were then he could change his groups name to Green Pants.
