Brandon T. Jackson and Other Celebs Who Were Racially Profiled
Brandon T. Jackson is claiming a US Airways flight attendant degraded him countless times before having him removed from his plane. According to the actor, a flight attendant named "Dee" told him to take a seat in which an argument ensued. The Tropic Thunder actor cited that the attendant yelled to him "I don't care if your Obama son get in your seat!" and also called him the N-word while other patrons watched.
Once removed and detained for questioning by Pheonix police, the actor wasn't allowed to board another flight. US Airways has yet to release a statement.
