Brandon T. Jackson

Inflight Pain In the Ass

... Says Airline

EXCLUSIVE

"Tropic Thunder" star Brandon T. Jackson was an obnoxious, drunken a-hole during a flight Monday ... and that's why he was booted from his plane, so says US Airways.

A rep for the airline tells TMZ ... crew members adamantly deny using the N-word during an inflight altercation with the actor, despite the actor's allegations.

As we previously reported, Brandon went on a Twitter rant last night -- claiming a flight attendant hurled racially-charged epithets at him for no reason ... but now, the airline is calling BS.

The rep explains, "The disruptive behavior started with loud music being played by Mr. Jackson at his seat.  He was asked several times to turn down the music.  Additional erratic behavior was observed and that is when the crew made the decision to stop serving [alcohol to Brandon]."

US Airways says it stands behind the crew -- claiming they handled the situation appropriately.

When Jackson's flight landed in Phoenix (where he was supposed to catch a connecting flight to Burbank) he was escorted off the plane and interviewed by Phoenix PD.

Cops determined no crime was committed and he was allowed to leave -- but US Airways banned him from getting on the plane to BUR.

So far, no word back from Brandon T. Jackson.

TMZ was quick to jump on the race card without hearing both side of the story. The airline said their side, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter if he was being disruptive because now that he said the stewardess made a racial comment towards him, that is where the focus will be. Would like to hear from some of the other passengers to get the truth.

Not sure about who the first to quote was but pretty sure it was a Black man.

I highly doubt that a crew member from US Airways. dropped the N-word!


What's more likely is Brandon T. Jackson dropping the race card to cover his poor behavior@

What? Another black acting like an absolute jerk and then --rather than accept responsibility for once in his life-- falls back on the old race card. Wow, how utterly shocking. I guess the airline had already met its affirmative action quota for the number of black jerks on the plane and could legally toss this clown without fear of the NAACP coming after them.

What a piece of trash! Attention Black People: playing the race card as if you are a victim to try and ruin people says alot about who you are.

I'm going with the guy is an a***hole as being the most plausible scenario here.

But he's black so they must be racists, right? This is so confusing.

I've flown 1000's of times and I've never had a problem on a plane. How difficult is it to get on a plane, not be drunk, not be beliigerent and sit quietly as others board the plane. I don't get it. I highly doubt employees are dropping the N word.
