Moby - Moby Joins Airline Boycott Campaign

Dance star Moby has backed Kelly Osbourne's call for fans to boycott America's Southwest Airlines after lesbian actress Leisha Hailey was kicked off a flight for kissing her girlfriend.
The L Word star and her partner were asked to depart the plane by a flight attendant after fellow passengers complained about the couple's public display of affection.
She demanded an apology from Southwest bosses and urged members of the gay and lesbian community not to fly with the company.
Osbourne threw her support behind Hailey's campaign, branding the cabin crew's actions "deplorable" - and now Moby is also pushing his followers to avoid flying with Southwest.
He writes on his Twitter.com blog, "Southwest air has kicked people off of their planes for: kissing, wearing baggy pants, and being overweight. so: boycott southwest airlines."
Southwest staff famously ordered director Kevin Smith off a flight last year (10) because of his size, and Green Day rocker Billie Joe Armstrong was told to leave a flight last month (Sep11) because his trousers hung too low.
