Following in the footsteps of Gérard Depardieu and Josh Duhamel, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong is the most recent celebrity to get kicked off an airplane.

The latest cause for the boot? Apparently a dress code violation.

"Just got kicked off a southwest flight because my pants sagged too low!" Armstrong, 39, Tweeted on Thursday. "What the [expletive]? No joke!"

Armstrong's outburst didn't go unnoticed.



"Very sorry for your experience tonight," Southwest Airlines Tweeted the rocker shortly following the alleged incident. "Someone from our Customer Relations Team will reach out to you to get more details."

Later, the company explained in a statement that Armstrong "elected to take the next flight," and overall, "the situation was resolved to his satisfaction."
