Embarrassed Much: Quinton Aaron Booted From Flight For Taking Up Two Seats!
Kinda embarrassing moment for Quinton Aaron, best known as football star “Big Mike” in The Blind Side, as he was bootd off a plane due to his size.
That’s right,. You guys know I have my weight issues, but if I was asked to get off a plane because I was taking up two seats, I don’t know what I’d do! The 6’8″ 550 lb. actor was recently kicked off a US Airways flight bound for Rochester, N.Y., for taking up an extra economy seat. And the experience, the actor, 29, says, served as a huge wake up call. He’s now vowing to lose the weight.
With no seats in first class – how he usually flies, the actor took up two in economy on his connecting flight from Philadelphia.”As I saw the seats, I’m literally hoping that no one had to sit next to me because I knew it wasn’t going to work if they did,” Aaron told ABC News.
Aaron took the dismissal in stride. “I just grabbed my bag and just got off as quick as possible because it was embarrassing,” he said. Aaron was eventually re-booked on another flight.
“I live in California. I want to go to the beach in the summertime with a tank top on and have girls chasing me down the beach one day,” he said.
