Tamar Braxton finally decided to address the recent problem that she and her sister had with a Delta Airlines Pilot, saying that she feels her TV reputation may have had quite an impact on what happened. She also said that since then, she filed a police report.
Tamar told TMZ cameras that she feels she was a victim after the pilot of a Delta flight lectured her for no apparent reason.
Towanda, Tamar’s sister, recorded the incident and shared it on her social media where it quickly went viral.
‘I think that because of what people perceive on television is why I was targeted in the first place,’ she said.
Tamar continued and said that ‘And that wasn’t really fair because I did nothing wrong. I did nothing but sit in my seat, put my seatbelt on, and try to get back home to my son. I was targeted because of how someone felt I act on television.’
Tamar admitted that the pilot was just acting unprofessionally.
‘The company is not bad, but sometimes you hire bad people that make bad decisions,’ she explained, and then she added that she had filed a police report.

‘I treat everyone with respect. I do try to do my best to be nice to everyone. And it is just unfortunate because you see, I am still a customer,’ Tamar continued.
The video showed the pilot as he was lecturing Tamar about following flight attendant instructions on the plane. He also told her she could not ask him any questions. And the rest is already history. You can see what happened in Towanda’s video.
