Black star, Kandi Burruss and her husband suffered humiliation when they were kicked off a Hawaiian Airlines flight.
Kandi Burruss of The Real Housewives of Atlanta fame and her husband on Thursday were asked to get out of a Hawaiian Airlines flight. This was because she requested for her ticket which had been taken by one of the attendants.
Burruss said that the excuse they were given for being sent out of the flight was that they were “causing commotion” Infuriated by the event, Burruss took to her Instagram page and uploaded a video talking about the incident. She said that “This s*** is crazy.”
She further went on to say that “Never ride Hawaiian Airlines… they just kicked us off of the plane for absolutely no reason, like it’s ridiculous,” she said in the clip, in which airline staff can be seen in the open door of the plane.
I’m very disappointed that Hawaiian Airlines would blatantly lie to the media about our demeanor instead of … https://t.co/2qep2C7yqR

Narrating the ordeal she and her hubby, Todd Tucker faced, she said; “I was sitting in my seat, their people came and said that our seat wasn’t registering so they took our ticket and walked off the plane. But my ticket had my baggage stub on the back.”
She continued to recall the event by saying that “So when the other guy came and the plane started rolling off I said, ‘Hey, you know, he never brought us our ticket back, it has our, you know, baggage claim stub on it,’” she added. “So then they went and called and then they came back and was like, ‘Well the pilot decided he wanted to kick us off the plane because we caused so much commotion.”
#HawaiianAirlines just kicked us off for no reason. This was so crazy & random! We were sitting in our seat & the gate ticketer came on & asked to see my ticket because it wasn’t showing up in their system. I gave him my ticket but it had our baggage claim checks on the back. He never brought it back & the plane started rolling off. I asked the flight attendant where was my ticket & told him I needed the baggage claim ticket just in case my bags didn’t make the flight. The flight attendant left & came back & said the pilot was calling to check & then the next thing I know this lady comes on the plane & said she needed Todd & I to get off the plane because we caused some sort of commotion… Really???? I barely said a word to that flight attendant. Everybody sitting around us was like what are they talking about! This shit is crazy.

This is humiliating and unacceptable! Even stars are exposed to racist treatments. We can’t take this anymore! We need to be respected and we`re not going to lose our pride. Let everyone know, black lives matter!
