Singer Adam Lambert has come to the defense of Leisha Hailey and Camila Grey after they were booted off a Southwest Airline's flight.

According to the airline, the women were removed after several passengers complained that their behavior was "excessive."

Hailey, who is best known for playing Alice Pieszecki on Showtime's groundbreaking lesbian drama The L Word, and her girlfriend Camila Grey form the duo Uh Huh Her. They claim the airline discriminated against them because they are gay.

"I have been discriminated against by @SouthwestAir. Flt. attendant said that it was a 'family' airline and kissing not ok," Hailey tweeted to her nearly 17,000 followers.

Lambert, who has previously worked with Grey, backed up the women.

"News: kissing is NOT indecent behavior. No matter what sex u are. So if two of the same sex are sweetly kissing, get over it!" Lambert messaged on Twitter.

"No one bats an eye when straight couples kiss in public. When a gay couple does it's 'not family friendly.' #doublestandard," he added.
