In the clip, Smith admitted that he had “been drinking.” He added, “I’ve been sitting in the airport for three hours, yeah, I’ve been drinking. I ain’t drunk.”

He continued, “But they threw me off the plane because I’m drunk. Because you people won’t stand up and tell everybody what bulls–t this is. I just told them I didn’t feel comfortable about sitting next to somebody who had to wear a mask and I’m off a plane.”

Smith started as a recurring character in the popular Paramount drama series during its first two seasons before being promoted to the main cast in season 3. He portrays Lloyd Pierce, a ranch hand at the Dutton Ranch.
