Steven Slater -- The Media Storm Hits Home

JetBlue's most famous flight attendant Steven Slater returned to his home in Queens this morning -- and was greeted by a paparazzi storm usually reserved for Brangelina or Britney Spears.

Dude told the media swarm he was "glad to be here" -- and then quickly made his way inside.

Slater is currently on leave from his job with JetBlue -- so far, no word if he plans on returning.

I'm wondering why the hell this guy has an ex-wife?? He's clearly extremely gay, not that there's anything wrong with that, so what straight woman in her right mind would ever marry him?

ARREST THE PASSENGER! Assault on a flight attendant is a FEDERAL offense. She hit him in the head with the overhead compartment door. This man's reaction was appropriate.

Hopefully this Clown will be jailed and fined. To sympathize with Moron is just being ignorant and any avid traveler knows that these glorified waiters and waitresses that call themselves "Flight Attendants" can be some of the most despicable people with their snotty attitudes and lazy demeanor. I fly often and do my best to avoid them at all costs and have personally witnessed them doing some pretty unsavory things to customers. In short ...I call BS on all the support that the press says this guy is getting. The people i speak to all say they should send him away and send a company memo to all Flight Personnel to get their acts together once and for all and try treating passengers with respect and just maybe they will get some in return.

Not sure I believe his story about being hit. If so, why did he get feel the need to get off the plane like that. Sounds like he was just being rude himself and didn't want to face the consequences. Why all the praise for this guy who was probably just being controlling and pissy with a customer on the plane?

TO POSTER NO. 4:

WTF does this man's sexual preference have to do with ANYTHING? Are you a homophobe? OMG, I am stunned you would even bring it up. It's not relevant to any of this matter.

I really don't get why TMZ is covering this. Who gives a crap about this. It's not even that big of a deal and the story is just dumb.

Agree with you 100% Poster #7. This clown acted stupid and people are glorifying him? He's no hero. The soldiers are HEROES not this @ss clown.

Jet Blue should hire him back as the best PR investment they ever had! They should also bring charges against the woman who triggered this **** storm...

Those reporters were ready to walk right into his house. They were trespassing even before they got to his porch. Vultures.

Understood. As a trained professional stew dealing with passangers crap this was just plain stupid. Everyone cheering is not facing criminal charges felonys and possible 7 yrs in jail. Don't know what Jet Blue will do yet. By all means get the woman who started this.
