Off the beat: T-shirt gets student booted off flight during St. Louis stopover

A student was kicked off a Southwest Airlines flight during a stopover in St. Louis because he refused to take off a T-shirt emblazoned with the F-word.

Daniel Podolsky was flying from Dallas to Chicago after attending the South by Southwest (SxSW) festival in Austin, Texas . The shirt was a souvenir, handed out to promote the Comedy Central show "Broad City."

Following a confrontation with Southwest employees, Podolsky was asked to leave the plane. He was eventually allowed to board a later flight to his final destination of New York -- after he changed his shirt.
