Leisha Hailey is not finished with Southwest Airlines.
A day after the former L Word star and her girlfriend got booted from a flight – for “excessive” PDA that drew complaints from fellow passengers, according to a company statement – the actress has fired back.
She and her partner have released a joint statement that reads:
“In no way were our actions on Southwest Airlines excessive, inappropriate or vulgar. We want to make it clear we were not making out or creating any kind of spectacle of ourselves, it was one, modest kiss.
“We find it very disturbing that the same airline who lauds itself as being LGBT friendly has twisted an upsetting incident that happened into our behavior being ‘too excessive.'”
Hailey and the other woman will be filing a formal complaint with the airline.
