Flying in coach is never comfortable, but it’s getting downright awkward for bigger passengers as airlines increasingly single out customers they deem too fat to fly.

The issue made headlines in early February when the director Kevin Smith, best known for “Clerks” and “Chasing Amy,” was thrown off a Southwest Airlines flight from Oakland to Burbank, Calif., because the crew determined he was too big. Mr. Smith turned to his Twitter account to vent: “I broke no regulation, offered no ‘safety risk’ (what, was I gonna roll on a fellow passenger?). I was wrongly ejected from the flight.”

OMG HOW ABOUT LOSING A FEW HUNDRED POUNDS YOU FAT *****.

Jesus Christ this is getting ridiculous. Look at the size of the guy in that picture. Do they honestly expect airlines to build planes that can sit 12 800lb passengers?

Give me a break.
