"Quinton Aaron, the 6-foot-8 actor who played Michael Oher in the 2009 film The Blind Side, was asked to get off a plane Friday because of his size.


The 29-year-old actor, who weighs 500 pounds, told TMZ that he usually buys two coach seats when he flies, but only one was available in the U.S. Airways flight he wanted to take from Philadelphia to Rochester."

In a similar situation Oprah Winfrey would have hit the roof, and sued the airline for racial discrimination.
