Actor/comedian Brandon T. Jackson claims that he faced racially discrimination after being called derogatory racial slurs and kicked off an airplane by staff members of US Airways. The airline, in response, made a counterclaim saying that Jackson was indeed kicked off the flight. Denying his racial finger pointing, the airline insists Jackson’s rude and disruptive behavior is to blame.
In statement released by the airline they said, “The disruptive behavior started with loud music being played by Mr. Jackson at his seat. He was asked several times to turn down the music. Additional erratic behavior was observed and that is when the screw made the decision to stop serving [alcohol to Brandon].”
Jackson has yet to respond to the airline’s statement.
