Amber J. Phillips, writer and host of the podcast "The Black Joy Mixtape," experienced an airline nightmare that went from bad to worse when American Airlines sided against her for seemingly no reason.
"The cops were called on me for flying while fat & Black," she explains.
Phillips flew from Durham, North Carolina to Washington, D.C., and tweeted about the experience with photographic evidence.
This was my view tonight because I made a white woman uncomfortable and held her accountable by AT LEAST making sure I documented her outrageous behavior of trying to humiliate me on a flight. @AmericanAir put my life and the life of other passagers in danger tonight. pic.twitter.com/yf9iyuubFq— amber j. phillips (@AmberJPhillips) April 27, 2018
