Brandon T. Jackson

I Wasn't A Drunken A-Hole On Plane

Brandon T. Jackson says 13 people on his US Airways flight will back up his story that a flight attendant hurled the "N" word at him and made another racial comment.

Brandon's rep tells TMZ ... the incident Monday did not go down the way the airline claims.  The rep says he was NOT drunk, NOT loud, and NOT disruptive.

Here's the way Brandon says it went ... He was running lines for a script he had with some random passenger who was sitting next to him.  The flight attendant then accused them of being too loud, but Brandon says the noisy ones were actually in the row in front of them.

So the "Tropic Thunder" star claims he then went to the back of the plane for sandwiches, and the flight attendant confronted him, told him she didn't care if he was Obama's son and he needed to sit down.  He also says she hurled an epithet, "seemingly in jest."   He claimed earlier she used the "N" word.

Brandon says the flight attendant beat him to the punch and complained to the pilot and when they landed he was questioned by authorities, who determined he was NOT intoxicated as the airline claimed. 

Brandon says he has 13 passengers who waited around to back up his story.

The airline tells us they stand by their story ... Brandon was being a disorderly, drunken douchebag.

He probably was causing a scene. The other passengers just don't want their faces shown in this mess.

Comical. He's paying homage to the anointed one by defending his lies with fresh lies.

You are an a-hole drunk or not and a liar too. You read too much of your own press.

I have no idea who this guy is nor does it matter. I especially don't care about the n-word and apparently black folks only makes it an issue when it's used by whites and they can make fodder out of it.
What I want explained is why did he found it necessary to walk to the back of the plane to get a sandwich?

"Causing a scene" can mean anything or nothing when it comes to stewardesses. "Flight Attendants" are the cute little nice girls they used to be. Nowadays, Flight Attendants can be really nasty, and they are never really "nice" anymore" One thing they (stewardesses) can do in retaliation against a passenger they just don't "like" is to put someone's name on a "no fly" list and cause people to have problems that could take months and lots of money to fix. People usually like to stand clear of megalomaniacs with nasty tempers, like the airlines.

He went to the back of the plane to get sandwiches. Is it a plane or a flying sub shop?

A few drinks and a nice buzz, even one of those buzzes where you're laughing and having a good time is way waaaay different than being drunk. Drunks are never fun.

At this point I don't know what to believe. Brandon's story still doesn't make sense to me, but who knows?
