"Actress Leisha Hailey, known for her work on the lesbian-centric television show The L-Word, claimed that she was escorted off a flight operated by Southwest Airlines this week because she is gay. 'I have been discriminated against by @SouthwestAir. Flt. attendant said that it was a 'family' airline and kissing was not ok,' Hailey tweeted Monday afternoon. The actress called for a boycott of the airline, and claimed that she has video and audio recordings of their actions." [editor's note: This news story headlined it as "for being gay"; in reality, she kissed another woman on the lips (briefly, as you would your Mother or sister?). SWA is way off course here! - SAT] (09/27/11)
