Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong removed from plane for sagging pants

Remember that time VH1 devoted an episode of Behind the Music to Green Day, and lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong told the program that releasing "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" was the most punk rock thing he ever did? Dude was wrong — getting kicked off a plane for sagging his pants is the most punk rock thing he ever did. 

It all happened last Thursday on a Southwest Airlines flight leaving Oakland for Burbank. Reports NYDN

A flight attendant approached the 39-year-old singer just as the flight was going to take off. She insisted his pants were too low and asked him to hike them up. Qiu said Armstrong lashed out, asking the flight attendant, "Don't you have better things to do then worry about that?" She then threatened to remove Armstrong from the flight, to which he said, "I'm just trying to get to my f–king seat." The "Basket Case" singer and his traveling companion were then taken off the plane.

Intense! So does this mean Lil Wayne is simply banned from aviation altogether?
