Steven Slater And JetBlue Officially Part Ways

While it's unclear if he was let go or was fired, what we do know is that Steven Slater's no longer a JetBlue employee.

Slater CNN reports: "JetBlue spokeswoman Jenny Dervin told CNN on Saturday that Steven Slater no longer works for the airline. She said that the separation occurred last week, but declined to elaborate how Slater and the company parted ways."

But according to ABC News, Slater's lawyer gave a different account on how things went down:

"…Slater's lawyer said that when the flight attendant left JetBlue on Wednesday, it was not the airline's decision. 'He was not fired,' attorney Daniel J. Horwitz told The Associated Press. The lawyer told the AP that he and Slater were still working out details with the airline, but wouldn't elaborate."

This begs the question, what's next for Slater? With his new found fame, this means he might be a season away from being a contestant on Big Brother.

It was/is inevitable:

"According to well-placed industry sources … Stone Entertainment — a powerhouse in the reality TVworld — is going after Slater to host a show in which various disgruntled workers quit their jobs in extravagant ways.

But reality TV is a fickle thing … if Slater's story turns out to be a big hoax — which we're thinkin' is the case — the offer could disappear as fast as it came.

Still, we're told Slater's lawyer has received the offer."

PHOTOS: Awesome Flight Attendant Steven Slater Wearing His Best JetBlue Blues

We understand Steven Slater, the JetBlue flight attendant who grew so fed up with a passenger he grabbed a beer from the beverage cart and escaped via the plane's emergency shoot, is a member of the tribe. Mr. Slater has since been arrested on felony counts for fleeing from JetBlue Flight 1052 while it taxied to the terminal, and that's called "criminal mischief." So long as nobody was hurt, and it appears that's the case, Queerty salutes this man, because passengers are a-holes, and we love our gay JetBlue flight attendants..
