👋 Before you go

A JetBlue passenger has gone viral after accusing a flight attendant of discrimination. In a trending TikTok clip, she accuses a flight attendant of not serving her alcohol because she is white.

In a video with over 443,000 views, a woman can be seen in a fierce conversation with a group of flight attendants. It is unclear what happened prior to this video, but the flight attendants tell her that she is “disturbing the cabin” and that they would not be serving her any alcohol. They then ask her to take her seat.

“You never served me any alcohol, but you served the Black people,” the woman says. Later in the video, she adds, “You’re discriminating against me because I’m white.”
