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.

That guy is so creepy looking. As far as people thinking he is a hero...what a bunch of crap. I worked as a customer service rep for 25 years, I dealt with many idiots....BUT....I considered myself a professional who would not stoop to the occasional idiot customers level. He is way past gay!

WHAT A LOSER,big ass drama queen.
He did not handle the situation correctly.
He should of had the pilot fly back up in the air at 20,000 feet and then go down the slide.

I don't know why anyone would consider this guy a hero in the first place.
He was unprofessional at his job. And acted a bit nutty.

Until you've worked with the public you can't imagine what people in his position and cust. serv reps go through with the public. People are rude and disrespectful. He just had the nerve to say what he felt.... woooray!!!!!
