Somebody’s stiring up more than a cocktail, right Brandon T. Jackson?
The actor, most known for his role as “Alpha Chino” in the 2008 comedy Tropic Thunder, accused a US Airways flight attendant of calling him the n-word during an altercation Monday evening while on board a Phoenix-bound flight.
According to TMZ, Jackson threw a child-like tantrum after the US Airways attendant informed the actor that he was at his cut off limit for alcoholic beverages. Brandon allegedly wailed his arms and raised his voice at the air attendant, and police were called on the ground.
Although the altercation never escalated to any physical activity, the 29-year-old actor has stated that the flight attendant insulted him with a few racial slurs.
“I don’t care if you’re Obama’s son, get back in your seat,” the actor says the flight attendant told him.
Brandon also accused the attendant of calling him the N-word while being questioned.
He was soon released without charge, but was escorted by authorities out of the terminal and barred from ever catching a connecting flight to Burbank. Following the incident, Brandon took to Twitter and informed his followers about the incident.
“This was the most racist thing that ever happen to me. Even the white people on the plane was like, that racist,” tweeted a sarcastic Jackson.
The Phoenix Police Department and US Airways have not yet commented on the incident.
Obama’s son? Really?
