Airline boots unruly actor off flight in Phoenix

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - US Airways denies crew members used racial slurs against actor Brandon T. Jackson, who was kicked off a flight at a Phoenix layover because of unruly behavior.

The 29-year-old Jackson had been drinking on the New York City to Phoenix flight Monday night and became upset when flight attendants stopped serving him alcohol.

The "Tropic Thunder" actor sent out 21 tweets about the experience and says a flight attendant "called me the N-word."

Police escorted Jackson out of the terminal at Sky Harbor International Airport. Jackson took another flight to Burbank, Calif.

US Airways spokesman Andrew Christie said crew members "deny any use of the N-word or racist slurs with Mr. Jackson."

A call for comment to Creative Artists Agency and ML Management, who represent Jackson, wasn't immediately returned Wednesday.
