Joel Madden was recently stopped from getting on a British Airways flight by an employee and was not to be let on until he covered his tattoos. I can’t believe he actually put a shirt on to cover up the tattoos instead of lashing out.
Actually I can, he seems like a nice guy who probably just wanted to get home to his baby girl and let it slide. It’s a sign of maturity, right?
Turns out the employee was acting on his own volition when he barred Joel from boarding,or at least that’s the word we’re getting from British Airlines.The company has an “appropriately dressed” standard, which does not mention tattoos. And in this day and age, really who cares what someone is wearing when they get on the plane. As long as they get on, don’t smell, don’t talk to loud or step on your toes every time they get up to go to the restroom, they’re good, right.
Joel took to Twitter and tweeted his annoyance and his embarrassment.
From his Twitter page, “its not in the
rules that i can find.my tatts arent offensive.looking into it. i
havent felt this small since the first time i asked nic out”
Poor Joel, I’m sure your girls are ecstatic to see you.
