Actress Mo'Nique Imes (above) was thrown off a plane after arguing with a flight attendant who the TV personality alleges was racist towards her.
Mo'Nique sat in first class with her assistant back in economy. The assistant apparently stashed a hair dryer up in a first class baggage locker. How dare!
A flight attendant allegedly said to Mo'Nique, "Tell your people that the next time they have an attitude, they are being thrown off ... Since 9/11, we don't play around."
Of course a "spat" followed and poor Mo was escorted off the plane and police were called. Mo'Nique told the NY Daily, "I felt like I was being treated like an animal. This happens to black people all the time, and they don't have a voice. It was humiliating."
Jean Medina, a spokeswoman for United Airlines, says, "We regret Ms. Imes felt in any way that she was not treated with courtesy and respect. There was a confrontation involving a customer that caused the flight to be delayed. When a situation occurs on a flight that causes a delay, or disruption, we must act in the best interest of all our customers."
