Take a bus, Tubby … so says Southwest.

Entertainer Kevin Smith was thrown off a Southwest Airlines flight for being too fat to fly.

Flight attendants determined he was too big to lower the armrest comfortably and tossed him from the flight.

The airline said that he was infringing on the “safety and comfort” of other passengers.

According to Southwest Airlines an overweight passenger can block the emergency exits from other passengers trying to quickly exit the plane.

The airline also says that passengers seated next to overweight people will be uncomfortable.
