Fat Mike calls dude a sissy on plane, gets detained by airport police

Apparently, while preparing for takeoff at San Francisco International Airport earlier this week, NOFX front man Fat Mike was detained for calling a fellow passenger a “sissy.” Yes, you heard that right. He posted the following tweet after being detained:

“Just now, Some guy next to me on a plane asked to move seats cuz I was too loud. I called him a sissy. He called the airport cops… No shit, I was just detained at SFO for 30 minutes for calling someone a sissy.”

Lucky for Mike, no charges were filed by the “fuckin sissy,” who he thought should “grow some tits.” Here’s some advice from Mr. Burkett for anyone who runs into trouble with johnny law:

“Using the term Sir when talking to a cop is very helpful. You can get away with almost anything if you’re polite to the police.”

Can’t argue with that!

NOFX’s upcoming 7-inch “Stoke Extinguisher” is set to be released on November 26th via Fat Wreck Chords. They’ll be touring the US with ImplantsDillinger Four, and Masked Intruder in November and December.
