Final Frontier

“What I learned during Southwest was how much fat enmity there is out there in the world. It’s the final frontier in terms of, like, open bigotry. I was in a bubble for a long time because of the movies I did. I lived this illusion that the more I did the less people saw me as fat. But then during Southwest, man, people came out of the woodwork with their long, sharp knives–online, of course, never to your face–in regards to size. ‘I f—ing (sic) hate fat people on planes, they sicken me!'”

Kevin Smith, on his experience getting kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight for his weight, to Clark Collis in ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, 23 Mar. 2012, p. 77
