Kevin SmithKevin Smith, director of Clerks and Chasing Amy, is a maverick, an auteur, and a bit tubby. And it's the tubby part that's making headlines today after Smith was removed from a Southwest Airlines flight last Saturday for being a 'passenger of size'.

Smith apparently didn't fit (literally) Southwest's booking guidelines which say that passengers who are unable to lower both armrests when seated should book another seat because of complaints it has received from customers whose comfort has been ruined by the "encroachment of a large seatmate".

Southwest issued a swift apology - but not before Smith went to the celebrity soap box of choice, Twitter, and voiced his anger at his treatment to his 1.64 million followers.
