at the end of the day, SWA is STILL saying that kevin smith is too fat to fly. take out a row of seats and let him show America just how FIT he is to sit in a SINGLE seat. this apology, although more sincere than the last, is STILL conveying the msg of "sorry for your inconvenience, but you got kicked off 'cause you're just too fat". for the last time, just admit fault (and COMPLETE fault at that, not pointing fingers back to the victim in all of this) and let this blow over already.

there are too many comments up here to read through but i hope all are siding with kevin smith. those that want to know the truth of the situation, listen to his smodcast episode 106, it explains it all. he did not violate any safety restrictions nor was he "too fat to fly". he buys two seats by choice, not by necessity. he offered to go on live television to sit in a row of southwest seats to prove he can fit just fine with the armrests and be able to buckle his seatbelt properly without the extender. the women who sat next to him did not find him invading their personal space either so southwest had no right to eject him off the plane. this apology is hardly an apology, it's basically saying, we were right, you're too fat. i hope everybody boycotts this airline until something is done about the situation--a REAL apology, where they admit they were in the wrong. that's all kevin smith wanted, an rightful explanation as to why he was wrongfully ejected from his flight, and southwest's admittance to their mistake. like kevin smith said, you have to OWN the things you're stuck with. OWN the fact that southwest were assholes, accept the consequences, and make it right again. (although at this point, you pretty much fucked yourself up the ass already, and things will never be the same again)
