Jetstar Sort Of Apologises For Defacing Passenger’s Bag With “I Am Gay”

Cool story, Jetstar. A passenger flying the budget airline from Perth last night tweeted this disturbing display of homophobic defacement—constructed with baggage stickers—across his luggage.

Not sure what’s worse. Finding your bags looking like this on the carousel, or being the person who a) has too much time on their hands because that stickering looks well elaborate, b) probably has lost their job by now and c) is gross enough to use “gay” as an insult. According to The Courier Mail, a Jetstar spokesperson said, “We are taking this matter very seriously and we have contacted the passenger to apologise for any distress caused.”

And while budget airlines certainly tend to appear in the news for their failings, delaying or cancelling is one (admittedly expected) thing; attacking someone like this is something else altogether. The blogging father of two is hella calm about this incident, which is lucky for Jetstar, because anybody else in his situation would be scampering full-throttle to A Current Affair in tears, with the hopes of landing a $$-heavy interview and a gracious apology burning in their eyes. Instead, the passenger and bloody legend’s response was this:
