Brandon T. Jackson

Inflight Pain In the Ass

... Says Airline

11/5/2013 12:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"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.

Wow so many racist on this page its unbelievable. Black people playing the victim again? Really, were you there to know what actually happened? Im not saying he is telling the truth you can choose to believe him or not without attacking an entire race for what 1 person has said. What was allegedly said is racist and should be condemned by anyone with morals

I hate to say it but this brother has issues. I had dealings with him in a legal setting and he is a drama king, loves to draw attention (whether negative or otherwise) and has a habit of exaggerating situations which I believe is what has happened here.

This dude is a drama king big time. I had dealings with him in a business setting and he is totally obnoxious and immature. He loves drawing attention to himself(whether that be negative or otherwise), is utterly insecure and has a habit of exaggerating things which I believe is what has happened here. He wants all this recognition as thought he was a Denzel Washington or Samuel L. Jackson (quite dillusional of him). I see nothing has change with this clown.

Who is this clown? Hey Jackson, why don't you star in some BIG movies and then develop the 'I'm a star" attitude. Without that, you're just a trouble maker on a plane.
