Earlier tonight we reported that actor and former White House adviser Kal Penn directed a crude sex joke at a female gate agent for American Airlines because Penn was angry at her over a disagreement with his carry-on luggage:
Valerie @AmericanAir says my bag won't fit. I know it will, I fly this same plane regularly. She wants me to remove clothes from my bag

Penn has since replied to us, defending his “lube” joke:
.@TwitchyTeam – Much love but my lube joke wasn't gender-specific. It referred to buttsex which can be enjoyed by all genders nearly equally

One, Penn is missing the point, which this reader makes for him — again:

And two, we’re still waiting for Penn to answer our exit question:
Why is a powerful Hollywood actor and White House insider giving a gate agent a hard time while she works on a Sunday night during a holiday weekend?
At Twitchy, we give thanks to airline employees who work on weekends to help us see our families over the holidays, not bully them on Twitter.
