American Airlines revealed to HipHollywood exclusively that they do not “discriminate for any reason.” The company’s statement was in response to passenger Imani Cezanne’s recent claims that she was kicked off an AA flight for the color of her skin.

“American Airlines values diversity and we do not discriminate for any reason,” AA told us.

According to the Cezanne, before takeoff from Charlotte to Atlanta, she noticed a flight attendant making two people leave an emergency exit row. When she inquired about the passengers being moved, the AA employee explained that the passengers didn’t speak English and were not allowed to sit in the exit row.

That’s when, according to the woman, things took a turn for the worse. Imani recalled via Twitter being escorted off the plane by two armed Caucasian male officers and feeling like “I could die at any moment.”

But per AA, the passenger was “unruly” and was “removed” from the flight “due to failure to comply with crew member instructions. The passenger refused to exit aircraft when asked, so local law enforcement was called.”

The airline explained they have every intention on working “with the customer to resolve the issue.”

    Her last Tweet, “Who knows a lawyer? Specifically one that is well versed in racism/discrimination. AA bout to cash this Black girl out.” Yeah, no motive here and it seems perfectly logical that AA kicks all blacks off it’s planes. There is NO WAY she could have caused a disruption. I mean, she is quoted as saying she was escorted by two Caucasians and felt like she was going to die. Seems legit.

      I love people like her that feels that she’s going to die in the company of who white cops while ignoring the fact that 97% of black murders in this country are perpetrated by other blacks, not cops.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
