American Airlines is facing accusations of racial discrimination after removing two Black celebrities from flights during the last week and being sued in federal court by a Black passenger for also being kicked off a flight.

Dallas track star Sha’Carri Richardson said she was forced to leave an American Airlines flight Saturday after a confrontation with a flight attendant who confronted her while she was making a video during pre-flight announcements, according to videos the hopeful Olympian posted to Instagram.
