Was Tamar Braxton harassed by Delta pilot for flying while black?
Towanda Braxton isn't happy about how her little sister was treated on a recent flight.
It looks like Tamar Braxton had an uncomfortable run-in with a Delta Airlines pilot on a recent flight, and her big sister, Towanda Braxton, is accusing the airline of harassment.
The Braxton Family Values star shared a video on social media that showed a pilot warning Tamar that she better comply with his flight attendants after she allegedly appeared to be intoxicated before the wheels went up and she blasted the airline for the incident.

Towanda posted a video showing the pilot giving Tamar a stern talking to.
“Here’s how this works. My flight attendants work for me and so if you get an instruction from a flight attendant, I need to know that you’re willing and able to do what you’re told to do,” he says.
Moments later, Tamar can be heard denying any wrongdoing to the person next to her and says, “We should get off of this plane.”

Delta responded on Twitter saying they were “looking into” the situation.
“Towanda, our employees reflect our culture of treating all people with dignity and respect, and if we aren’t doing that, we aren’t doing our job. We’re looking into it now. Please DM here for additional assistance. *HCJ,” a rep for the airline posted.
Towanda is claiming that the flight attendants incorrectly assumed Tamar Braxton was drunk because she had a blanket over her head while she was trying to sleep. In a twitter exchange with a fan responded to her video, Toward claims she filed a police report and also insists that both the pilot and the flight attendant were “written up.”
So far, Tamar has yet to comment not he controversy.
