Lunchtime Poll: How should Hollywood capitalize on JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater?

Posted on

Steven Slater, the JetBlue flight attendant who had a terrible, horrible, no good very bad yesterday, has become a figure of national intrigue. It would have been enough that after getting whacked in the head with some dolt’s overhead luggage Slater swore at everyone in the cabin over the plane’s P.A. system, grabbed two beers, slid down the emergency chute, ran across the tarmac, and drove away in his car (his car!!!). But on top of that, Slater was having sex with his boyfriend when the police arrived and had the most bizarre, serene smile while being led off for reckless endangerment and trespassing. And he used to be married. And his mom is dying. And he still won’t talk. All that and he’s into madras shorts?! You know Hollywood won’t let anyone get away with a meltdown of such epic proportions. Help us decide what must be done with Steven Slater by voting below.
