Openly lesbian Actress Leisha Hailey who appeared on Showtimes “The L Word” has accused  Southwest Airlines flight for kissing her partner in a series of angry tweets today that she was kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight for kissing her partner.

Wrote Leisha:

“I have been discriminated against by Southwest Air. Flt. attendant said that it was a ‘family’ airline and kissing was not ok…This is an outrage. I demand a public apology by @SouthwestAir and a refund. Hate is not a family value. I will never fly this airline….We were escorted off the plane for getting upset about the issue. @SouthwestAir endorses homophobic employees. No one made her accountable. Since when is showing affection towards someone you love illegal? I want to know what Southwest Airlines considers as ‘family’.”

Leisha also has recorded evidence of the incident

Southwest Airlines the shit has officially hit the fan.
