Green Day singer-guitarist  Billie Joe Armstrong says his sagging pants cost him a seat on a Southwest Airlines flight. Billie Joe Armstrong sent a message to his Twitter followers on Thursday expressing his indignation at being tossed from an Oakland-to-Burbank flight for wearing his trousers too low.

An ABC7 news producer who was on the same flight told the station that a flight attendant approached Armstrong before take-off and asked him to hike his pants higher.
The producer, Cindy Qiu, says when Armstrong insisted he was just trying to get to his seat, he and a travelling companion were taken off the plane.

Southwest spokesman Brad Hawkins says in a statement that Armstrong was allowed to board the next flight.
