Woman allegedly kicked off flight for wearing 'Black Lives Matter' t-shirt

Early Monday morning, Imani Cezanne wrote on Twitter that she had been escorted by security off of an airplane because she was wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt.

“Today I was escorted off of a plane by two armed caucasian male officers. I have never believed so strongly that I could die at any moment,” Cezanne wrote. She also posted a picture of the shirt she had been wearing, captioning the image, “What I was wearing when I was unnecessarily ejected from my flight because the FA felt ‘threatened.’ Coincidence?”

After the incident, American Airlines released a statement saying that “an unruly passenger was removed from American Eagle Flight 5192, operated by PSA Airlines, from CLT to ATL due to failure to comply with crew member instructions. The passenger refused to exit aircraft when asked, so local law enforcement was called.”
