Southwest pilot’s homophobic tirade caught on tape
A Southwest pilot was suspended without pay after he accidentally left his microphone on during a crude antigay rant.
The pilot describes flight attendants as “a continuous stream of gays and grannies and grandees,” in the March 25 recording released by the FAA.
“I just wouldn’t want anyone to know if I had banged them. … Now I’m back in Houston, which is easily one of the ugliest bases,” he said.
“The Pilot in question has been addressed by Leadership and was suspended without pay,” Southwest spokeswoman Brandy King said. “Prior to being reinstated, he underwent additional diversity education to reinforce the Company’s expectations for all Employees to demonstrate respect for others.”
