Actor Brandon T. Jackson: ‘Flight attendant called me the n-word and Obama’s son’


Tropic Thunder star Brandon T. Jackson says he was escorted off of US Airways flight yesterday and questioned by police after a flight attendant called him the n-word.

Jackson who is best known for his role as Grover in the Percy Jackson movies , says he was on a US Airways flight when a flight attendant named Dee approached him and asked him to sit down.

An argument ensued and Jackson claims the flight attendant said, “I don”t care if you’re Obama’s son — get in your seat!!” Jackson says the flight attendant also called him the n-word.

The Fast & Furious actor took to Twitter to express his outrage mid-flight.












The 29-year-old actor says he was later escorted off the plane — and questioned by police in Phoenix.

US airways has yet to comment on Jackson’s claims.
