Nope, this is not a follow-up to the Keven Smith story, but rather a similar story that eerily mirrors what happened to Smith. Only this time, it was about odor, not size, and the individual affected was not nearly as famous or as (digitally) well-connected as is Smith.
A man on Jazz Air, a regional airline in Canada that also serves U.S. cities, was reportedly kicked off a plane earlier this month because of his strong body odor.
“People were just mumbling and staring at him,” said a woman who sat near the man, according to The Guardian, a newspaper in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, where the flight originated on February 6. It was a very uncomfortable situation, she added.
Another passenger described the smell as “brutal.”
Perhaps if had been sitting next to Smith, he would have been treated better, or not.
