Steven Slater -- Not Welcome Back at JetBlue

9/5/2010 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Rosa Parks of flight attendants is no longer a flight attendant -- Steven Slater and JetBlue have gone their separate ways.

A spokeswoman for JetBlue says the two sides parted ways last week, but didn't elaborate on details.

Slater became a folk hero of sorts when he got into an alleged confrontation with an unruly passenger ... then grabbed two beers and high-tailed it off the plane via the plane's emergency slide.

Slater's account of what went down has since been called into question.

"The Rosa Parks of flight attendants"...wow really? Obviously the public school system has failed whoever wrote this phrase. To liken him to Rosa Parks is just weird. Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat and move to the back of the bus. Slater jumped out of an airplane emergency exit with a beer in his hand. Am I the only one who's missing the connection?

Only connection I see, is that Ms. Parks refused to continue being treated like a 2nd class citizen, sparking a movement which helped bring some elements of equality to our nation. The JetBlue nimrod refused to continue being treated like dirt by human trash who think "I'm the customer...so I can say or do anything I want to you and you can't do anything about it because if you do you'll get fired...nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah" Sparking a movement that...ahhh, who am I kidding...he got fired, thus proving that human trash always wins.

he's a drama queen, regardless the customer is always right. And if you can't handle the pressure get out the kitchen. The lady that this drama queen got upset with could have easily pick american airline but she picked jetblu if it weren't for us the customer jetblu would go out of business. So if jetblu want to hire unprofessional like this drama queen go right ahead.

I travel, and I've seen flight attendants that look miserable and have bitchy attitudes.
