Moment passenger claims flight attendants won't serve her because she's white

A woman was escorted off a JetBlue flight after berating a flight attendant who, she claimed, denied her alcohol because she is white.

In footage posted on TikTok, the woman was seen telling a flight attendant: “You never served me any alcohol – but you served the Black people, and that’s fine.”

The flight attendant told her she was “disturbing the passengers”.

“You’re discriminating against me because I’m white,” the woman claimed.

The JetBlue flight attendant could be heard asking the woman to sit down before the flier returned to her seat.

Once the woman was in her seat, she could be heard continuing to blurt out racial remarks about the flight attendant.

“I’m white, and you don’t like white people. Black life matters, white life matters – it’s all peace and love,” she said.

In a second video, the woman was approached by another flight attendant who escorted her off the plane.

The person who filmed the video could be heard requesting that everyone clap as the woman was escorted off, and said: “You get escorted by a Black person, all that s*** you talking.”

Other passengers could then be heard laughing.

Social media users were quick to chime in on the woman’s apparent lack of sobriety.

One person said: “She was lit when she got on the plane.”

Another said: “Airport bars need a drink minimum ... those people get drunk before boarding the plane.”
