Steven Slater Hires Hollywood PR Honcho

8/16/2010 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Steven Slater has officially gone Hollywood -- he's hired one of the biggest PR mavens in town to rep him.

Slater has hired Howard Bragman -- the crisis PR specialist who has repped Isaiah Washington, Chaz Bono and Oksana Grigorieva (before dumping her after a day).

Bragman released a statement that reads, "I can officially confirm that I am now representing Steven Slater. While my work will include media relations, my team at Fifteen Minutes and I will also be helping him sort out the scores of offers that have come through in the past week from media, producers, brands and other interested parties. I very much believe that Steven touched a nerve with the American people and am proud to be helping him tell his story at the appropriate time in the appropriate way."

But what if Slater's story about the JetBlue passenger is bogus?  We're guessing he'll get a lot less than 15 minutes.

He should write a book called
"How To Go From Hero to Zero in 5 Seconds Flat"

Stop going on about him making up that passenger. Even if he did, can you honestly say that a society that watches Jersey Shore, the Hills, and Housewives of ... will care about that.

The facts are that he made the announcement over the speaker system, opened the emergency hatch, and jumped out with two beers in hand. THAT is why he is at least as deserving of a reality show as the losers I mentioned above.

Loser, Douche-bag, Fake, Idiot, dumbass, clown. I hope Jetblue sues his behind for mis-use of the emergency slide.

So-someone or all of the TMZ staff has determined that this man is faking his altercation with a passenger. Who cut his head? His visible injuries would match the overhead compartment door being slammed down on his head. Further, they believe a passenger that wasn't even in the same vicinity as Steven and the woman were. I am well traveled. Sitting in an aluminum tube or aircraft means you can't see anything. It's long and narrow and with the seatbacks, you simply can't see much of anything in front OR behind you.

So. The idiots at TMZ have decided. This must be the same bunch of males that have a crush on Rachel Uchitel and think that Kim Kardashian has a nice ass. I certainly hope these TMZ employees don't serve on jurys. Pretty scary lack of reasonable consideration here.

Hey JLS, it's not just TMZ who has seemingly decided that Slater is lying. Port Authority Police have also determined that Slater lied.

I'll personally boycott any brand or company which uses Slater as a spokesman. I will also never fly on any airline who hires Slater to perform in any capacity within their company.

I think the Slater incident proves that the FAA needs to create and enforce stricter standards for flight attendants.

Flight attendant should also be made to go through routine mental fitness exams and be made subject to mandatory breathalyzer tests before and after each and every flight.

Slater proved that flight attendants can potentially be every bit as much of a threat to passenger safety as any terrorist.
