Airline Official Denies Brandon T. Jackson's N-Word Accusation


Brandon T. Jackson


Jackson, who previously was escorted off of a U.S. Airways flight, writes on Twitter that a flight attendant launches racial slur against him.

A representative for U.S. Airways has released a statement to deny Brandon T. Jackson's allegation that one of their flight attendants made racial slur against the actor. According to the statement, Brandon caused a scene before he was removed from the plane on November 4.

"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 crew made the decision to stop serving [alcohol to Brandon]. Once the crew determines to stop serving alcohol to a customer then their decision is final," the representative explained, adding that their staff members handled the situation appropriately.

The "Tropic Thunder" star was interviewed by airport police after the plane landed in Phoenix. He later was not allowed to board a connecting flight to Burbank.

Following the incident, Jackson vented on Twitter. "I was called the N word, 'I don't care if [you are President Barack Obama's] son,' " he wrote in a post, accusing flight attendant "Dee" of launching the N-word. After a long rant, he concluded, "Going to sleep what a whack day joy comes in the morning!!! God bless guys thanks for the support...guys."
