Armstrong doesn’t take kindly to the request, and eventually he and his traveling companion are booted from the flight. Armstrong takes it to Twitter, writing, “Just got kicked off a southwest flight because my pants sagged too low!” The tweet is quickly retweeted by his followers, forcing Southwest to release a statement apologizing for the incident.
