Joel Madden Gets Tit for Tat

4/27/2009 4:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe MaddenThe airline employee who made Joel Madden cover his tats before boarding a British Airways flight on Sunday in London is in deep trouble -- because B.A. is calling BS on him.

A rep for British Airways just straight up told us the employee is being reprimanded -- adding "we don't understand why the employee took it upon himself to enforce regulations that don't exist."

No word on the ink-hater's punishment -- but a date with Kat Von D sounds about right.

#2 Mike.. What did your comment have to to with the violation of his rights? Your comment was not only ignorant, but erroneous. "People who have tattos are usually uneducated?" Your small mind is showing. You are carrying on in the footsteps of Archie Bunker. Congrats on your bigot status!

In Britain they are terrified of offending non-christians. It has gotten to the point where they are telling folks not to put christmas decorations in public areas etc... My guess is that joel was busted by them because most of his tatoos are of crosses or christ etc.... Probably either some person who is fairly anti-Christian, or some overly PC person decided to take the responsibility themselves. The thing is, if he wasn't famous they would have totally backed up the employee.

So, a lot of you all hate tatoos? That's your right. I happen to love them. I have two and would love more. (Only my husband who has none will not hear of it.) Each tat has a purpose for most who have them. I am not uneducated I just happen to like ink!

Its should not be about the tats, but about the pits. A man should not be wearing sleeveless T's in public unless he has shaved under his arms.

Here we go again, who the hek is Jeol Maddan? Why does TMZ insist on NOT telling us who these people are? Is he a singer, a tatooer, an actor or what? Actually I don't really care I just wish your "reporters" would give us all the story, tell us who you're talking about?

Daniel in T.O. @ 25,

TMZ assumes that if you are visiting the site or watching the show, that you will know who most of these people are. Just an example of celebrity having gotten out of control. I recognize 98% of the people featured...and am so ashamed.

10. Mike E - I know several educated, articulate, intelligent individuals with tattoos, and I proudly count myself among them. It's people who type in all caps with erroneous punctuation that are usually not very educated.

15. "PEOPLE WHO GET TATTOOS ARE USUALLY NOT VERY EDUCATED, I CAN'T STAND TO WATCH BASKETBALL ANY LONGER , WHAT A POOR EXAMPLE FOR OUR YOUTH, I HAVE THREE SONS, AND I TOLD THEM IF THEY EVER GOT A TATTOO IT WOULD BREAK MY HEART. THEY HAVE NONE, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

And people who post comments in all caps aren't very educated either! If you have to "shout" to get your point across, you obviously are a very little man and from your comment, small minded!
This incident was a case of discrimination, most likely based on the overt religious symbols displayed since Great Britain has become a nation of apologists for Islamic extremists.

Signed,
A highly educated, post graduate degree holding, masterbater, tattooed whore mother of five ( two of whom are over 21, have tattoos and are the world most idiot of kids!)
