Tamar Braxton’s sister, Towanda Braxton, was not happy at all when a Delta Airlines pilot had some not so flattering words to say to Tamar during their flight on July 28.
She posted a video of the incident on her social media account and she claimed it all happened because of the color of their skin.
‘@tamarbraxton got ridiculed by a pilot for flying while black on Delta. Wow! I guess being a diamond and double million miler doesn’t matter… @delta Shame on you… #WhyArePeopleSoMad#flyingwhileblack #smh,’ Towanda captioned the video that she posted on social media.
The clip shows a close-up of the pilot talking to Tamar while both sisters were sitting on the plane.
Towanda was definitely hinting at the fact that being black was the whole issue.
It seems that both Towanda and Tamar were acting strangely after they got on board and they were trying to leave and leave their baggage behind.
This w0ould have been a violation of the federal law, says Page Six.

When a representant for Delta spoke to Page Six about the situation, they insisted the pilot did what he had to do, and he was just trying to keep everyone safe after the Braxton sisters wouldn’t comply with rules.
‘It’s crucial for the safety of every flight for customers to be willing and able to follow crew instructions,’ the rep told Page Six in an official statement.
The rep continued and said ‘When these customers exhibited some unusual behavior and refused to acknowledge our flight crew’s instructions, the captain addressed them directly to ensure the safety and security of the entire flight.’
The airline also tweeted Towanda directly.
