Michael Colyar Alleges Racism at United Airlines, Goes on Blog Rant

by at . Comments

What is it about little-known celebrities and air travel? First, Gerard Depardieu urinates all over an aisle, and now Michael Colyar has accused United Airlines of racism.

The actor, best known for his role in 2005's Barbershop, says he was booted from a flight in the Dulles Airport this week because he sought to file a complaint after receiving a dirty look from a stewardess, which allegedly resulted from Colyar's refusal to move his luggage.

Security swooped in, forced Colyar out, and he blogged today:

"The flight attendant and her friend got just what they wanted, the n**ger off the plane. I'm sure they feel a great triumph in putting an uppity n**ger in his place. At the least I should be suing United Airlines for theft of services, public humiliation and defamation of character."

In response to such accusations and insults, United has released the following statement to TMZ:

"As a global airline with a diverse workforce, United has zero tolerance for any type of discrimination and we take every such matter seriously. We spoke to Mr. Colyar  Wednesday so that we can address his concerns, and committed to get back to him as we learn more from our coworkers and other customers onboard.”

Others on board the flight report that Colyar was loud and rude prior to being removed.

SURE, AND IF YOU'RE GOING 85 MPH, IN A 55 ZONE, AND YOU GET A TICKET, IT'S BECAUSE YOUR BLACK. ANY TIME YOU SCREW UP AND GET IN TROUBLE, IT'S BECAUSE YOUR BLACK. MAYBE HE'S JUST AN ASSHOLE

There's always someone with 5 carry on bags hogging up the bins. I have personally removed and floored bags in my space that I paid for. Never been challenged yet. He thinks he's special, I guess.

Almost the same thing happened to me. I had a couple of small things in the overhead and a Japanese lady got on the plane after me. I was asked if I could put my stuff under my seat so her stuff would fit in the overhead as her stuff was too big to fit under the seat. Can you believe it I was asked to move my stuff for a Japanese lady. This was obviously because I was a white American. Well the difference is that I moved my stuff because Im not an asshole. Michael Coylar should be paying United Airlines for the publicity that he is getting from this. I never heard of this guy until this happened.

God is the sun and when the sun sleeps, he turns black into the moon so black people are God too for yet posse's God's greatest physical might. Black people are slowly making money via black enterprise of entertainment and clean pimps and hos so they deserve better treatments as customers for some of them will be richer than white people 1 days. More over, white people can learn from the black race of having a strong posture for white people posture deteriorates into looking sexless humpbacks while lack people look hot in their elderly age with their firm and strong backs.
