Chiiile, the word on the sidewalk is…
Actor and comedian Brandon T. Jackson accused a US Airways flight attendant of racism via his Twitter account on Monday. In a series of tweets, the 29-year-old claimed that the flight attendant referred to him using a racial slur causing an altercation that resulted in Jackson being removed from the plane and questioned by police, TMZ reports.
Jackson also claims the flight attendant said, “I don’t care if you’re Obama’s son–get in your seat!”After being released from questioning Jackson tweeted, “This was the most racist thing that happened to me even the white people on the plane was like that racist…”
His tweet grabbed the attention of many followers including Angela Simmons, the daughter of RUN DMC’s Rev Run and niece of Russell Simmons.
Brandon T. Jackson is best known for his roles in ‘Roll Bounce,‘ ‘Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son,‘ ‘Tropic Thunder,‘ and ‘Lottery Ticket.‘
If these allegations are true then flight attendant Dee’s attitude needs a lil’ tightening! Um-kay?!
