'Blind Side' star recounts flight ordeal Published: April 9, 2014

Quinton Aaron, who starred with Sandra Bullock in the 2009 film "The Blind Side," was recently flying to Rochester, N.Y., for a job when he was asked to get off a US Airways plane. The hour-long connecting flight he was scheduled to take didn't have first class, and because he didn't fit well in the single coach seat and he was escorted off. The 6'8"550 lb. actor had to wait an hour and a half for the next flight, according to Yahoo Celebrity.

"It's an embarrassing situation, but for me, I wasn't so much embarassed. It's not like I can hide my weight" said Quinton. "It's one of those things that if I notice [my weight], I'd be a fool to think no one else did."

The 29-year-old actor doesn't agree with the way the airline dealt with his situation, Yahoo reports.
