Exclusive! American Airlines Responds To Woman Who Claims She Was Kicked Off Flight For Being Black

By  | 

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.
