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.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
