But she wasn't seeking publicity

So, imagine this: You are a self-proclaimed lesbian actress whose cable TV program about lesbians has been canceled and you are trying to promote a musical tour when a national airline is dragged into the limelight by you because of your excessive public display of affection with another woman on board a flight.

She just isn't responsible -- for anything
