Tell Southwest Airlines to Fire Pilot for his Anti-Gay Hate Rant!





Enough is enough! A Southwest Airlines pilot is back in the skies after accidentally broadcasting a profane, gay-bashing tirade directed at the Chicago-based flight crews he worked with.This type of hate spewed over the airwaves perpetuates hate crimes against the LGBT community. This has to stop! Demand that Southwest fire this pilot!

The pilot, whose name the airlines did not choose to disclose, apparently went through diversity training after describing the crews as a "continuous stream of gays and grannies and grandes" and "eleven f***ing over-the-top, f***ing a**-f***ing homosexuals."

Here is a transcript of some of the pilots words:

Well, I had Tucson to Indy all four weeks, and Chicago crews. 11 out of 12, there’s 12 flight attendants, individual, never the same flight attendant twice, eleven f***ing over-the-top, f***ing a**-f***ing homosexuals and a granny.

Eleven. I mean, think of the odds of that. I thought I was in Chicago, which was party-land.

After that, it was just a continuous stream of gays and grannies and grandes… Well I don’t give a f***. I hate 100 percent of their a**es.

So, six months, I went to the bar three times. In six months, three times.

Once with the granny and the f*g, and I wish I hadn’t gone.

At the very end with two girls, one of them that was part do-able, but we ended up going to the bar and then to the crew at St. Louis, and all these two women wanted to do was, one wanted to berate her sister and the other wanted to bitch about her husband.

Literally, for three hours, me and the F.O. (First officer). When that was done, got back to my room, I’m like why the f*** did I stay up?





Letter to
Gary C. Kelly
Dear Mr. Kelly,
I was shocked when I heard that pilot spewing anti-gay hate over the airwaves, his words perpetuate hate crimes against the LGBT community. I am asking that you fire this pilot! He actually stated that he hates gays. I will not feel safe flying Southwest airlines until he is removed. Many people across the United States feel the same way, fire this pilot! Thank you
