Disgruntled flight attendant Steven Slater might not be the working class hero we've declared him, or so say witnesses to the ordeal.
Passengers on board Monday's JetBlue flight where Slater made his infamous emergency exit say that it was Slater who instigated the fight with a passenger, cursing at her after she asked where her bag was stowed, The Wall Street Journal reported today
One passenger explained that while exiting the plane at John F. Kennedy International Airport, she overheard a young woman asking Slater where she could find her luggage before the interaction took a nasty turn. "I didn't think she was rude in the least," she said. "It really blew my mind. It was so inappropriate."
Another passenger told The Wall Street Journal that Slater was rude to after she asked for something to mop up spilled coffee she found on her seat, saying that Slater "rolled his eyes at me and said, 'What?' in a real rude manner." When the passenger pointed out the coffee to Slater, she says he snapped at her: "No! Maybe when we get in the air! I need to take care of myself first, honey!" She said he was referring to the gash on his forehead. "It wasn't normal and he shouldn't have been acting that way," she said. "I felt so uncomfortable on that flight."

15 minutes is up.
"Why are they applauding what he did? I don't understand," one passenger told The Wall Street Journal. "There are people out there who are dying for a job. I'm glad he's gone because someone can step in and do a much better job."
They're waiting for Breitbart to post the whole video. < /s>
Well, hold on now ....
Most of those guys in the back are butt boys....they love the travel so they can find new conquests on layovers....
They are generally very unstable people. You would not believe how many domestic dispute calls to the police involve homosexual couples.
Is Levin a Steven Slater fan? I’ll bet he is, being the master of the meltdown himself...lol.
“I picked him out as a EMO boy right away. Don’t need gaydar for that one.”
To be fair; he’s a flight attendant. Exactly how hard of a determination was it?
Nevertheless, the nutcase flight attendant has many fans on FR. I’m waiting for them to show up... waiting....
“...they love the travel so they can find new conquests on layovers....”
I heard they all have a long list of contacts in every city.
I agree, his actions certainly fit the gay stereotype.
I know plenty of Flight Attendants who don’t sleep around on every trip... just some. ;) Most of them are women!
Leave him alone. He had PMS.
Fifteen minutes and counting
What he did was totally UNPROFESSIONAL! Nothing to celebrate!
Sounds to me like such admiration is generally based upon incomplete and/or misleading news reports.
AMEN!! I KNEW he started it...Queen’s usually do!
His “orientation” doesn’t concern me as much as his actions being similar to a terrorist, even sending out a signal to them since it was so easy for him to flee the scene. My concern re his actions was the violation of passenger and employee safety as well as airport security.
Well, I think many people responded to the expression of frustration and rage that we feel when we see the economy going over a cliff. This guy is obviously not a good poster boy for what is really bothering folks, but folks are looking for a way to express their anger.
Well, yes, now that the facts are coming in ... which sensible people wait for.
Only IMMATURE people would hail this PUNK, this GAY PUNK that cost people time and money, would hail him as a hero....he’s a ZERO.
They showed a video story of Slater and his live in partner on TV yesterday several times. No doubt about it.....
Change the name in the title and he could be our next Senator from MN.
Exactly. And it bothers me that fewer people even blink an eye at "acting out" anymore. The passengers reiterate how uncomfortable they were with his attitude, presence, or "vibe" if you will. He was working up to it. They are lucky he didn't have a weapon.
He also looked like a bitchy fag.
“Want to get away?”
“Want to get away?”
...I hope that post was meant sarcastically...because your using a web site for a comment is somewhat ludicrous... butt boys in the back peddle their butts all over the world..that's why they work for dollar and hour....
Does this mean gays will have to pay more in taxes for health care, as some have suggested overweight people should? No? I thought not.
Homosexuals will never show restraint because they are obsessed with sex. That is their identity.
“I know plenty of Flight Attendants who dont sleep around on every trip... just some. ;) Most of them are women!”
VERY rare for the airline for whom I worked. We just wanted to go to the hotel and be ALONE!
Not sure if it was mentioned on this thread, but this Slater guy is HIV positive. It was revealed in an article on the day the incident took place.
Every gay gut that i have erer known has been an emotional wreck, drama queen, on the verge of snapping, etc etc....
They all need thereapy.
If this guy really wanted to get back at the passengers, that were obviously driving him nuts, when he got knocked in the head he should have sought medical attention. You need flight attendants to make a flight crew.
I’m guessing he was coming down hard from a long tweekend and was grumpy.
"???WE???"... Ummmhhh... not over here, pal...
Come on.... He's a Steward(ess)! The guy's the Chariman of the "Uniform Redesign Committee" for God's sake!!! Whose GAYDAR wasn't tweaking to full radiate?
Poor Fluffy just had a bad day (male menopause??), and decided to take it out on a "Breeder".
IIRC, the police, who were called by the airlines to arrest him, found him in bed with his lover, when they went to the 'address' he had for that stayover.
How did he get the GASH on his head?
Was that from something coming out of the overhead compartments?
I thought they went to his home.
I think he’s an alcholic, was already drunk and probably bumped into something... not sure it was a passenger’s fault.
I also think it’s amazing that people care more about his homosexuality than the fact he seriously compromised airport security and passenger safety, as he is entrusted with.
But then, I also posted a 9/11 topic and that got only one response...
This topic is approaching 50.
According to the spots running today on WABC 770, yes, he is. I guess he hasn’t had the wonderful experience of running into a gay drama queen on his bad hair day.
Recently, I saw this over worked waiter trying to help a room full of people, it was obvious the restaurant was totally under staff...And this AH with his wife yells out, "hey, can we get some service"?
The waiter looked at this guy with murder in his eyes...My buddy who's built like a large fire hydrant, looks at this little ungrateful freak and says, "This guy is doing the best he can, if you don't like the service, your free to leave"......Man...He didn't expect other customers to stick up for the help, and we never heard another peep out of impatient mouth again... It was classic...We gave the waiter a really good tip...
I wonder if his ex knew he was homosexual when she married him. Strange.
