Tamar Braxton may or may not have had a flying while black experience, depending on who you believe. As you may remember, her sister Towanda said a while back that Tamar was profiled while trying to sleep under a blanket on a Delta flight. Now, after Delta addressed the issue, Tamar is providing more details of what she says happened on the flight.
While Towanda Braxton posted a video and accused the airline of harassing her sister for #FlyingWhileBlack, Tamar seemed to be forgiving about the whole ordeal.
“It’s not even really the company. Sometimes you hire bad people … you just gotta get rid of the bad people,” she told TMZ. “It doesn’t mean the company is bad.”
Tamar is convinced that the issue was sparked by the way she is portrayed on reality television.
“Because of what people perceived on television is why I was targeted in the first place, and that wasn’t really fair because I did nothing but sit in my seat and put my seatbelt on and try to get home to my son,” she said. “I was targeted because of how someone felt I acted on television or whatever…I treat everyone with respect … It’s unfortunate that that happened. I’m still a customer. Like I said, the company isn’t bad.”
Here is what Tamar had to say in a series of tweets:
Well @Delta I think we BOTH know that is not what happened that day. I did absolutely NOTHING wrong. You let your flight attendant harass me… Embarrass me, when all I did was sit in my chair NEVER got up, NEVER requested to leave the plane and was asked by the BLACK attendant to “tell her to take off her blanket “after doing so, the question was ” are you willing to comply to the rules of this plane?” Never, Ever had an incident before, and trying to sleep would confuse ANYONE. I then said “of course” what’s the issue?
