Actor Brandon T. Jackson Slams US Airways After Flight Attendant Calls Him The N-Word
Lottery Ticket actor Brandon T. Jackson found himself stranded in Phoenix, Arizona after he was thrown off of his US Airways flight to Burbank, California. According to Jackson, he was escorted off of the flight because he got upset after a flight attendant named “Dee” called him the N-word. It appears that Brandon was tweeting about the incident while everything was going down.
A representative from US Airways has since responded to Brandon’s accusations, telling TMZ that Brandon was a disruptive and belligerent passenger who the flight attendants cut off from alcohol. They did not, however, address the racial slur that was allegedly used by their flight attendant. Officers who spoke with Brandon after he was escorted off of the plane say that he was totally cooperative and hadn’t committed any crimes.
