Tamar Braxton is fed up with Delta Airlines.

While on a flight with Delta, Tamar experienced a less than ideal situation involving the pilot, and her sister, Towanda, recorded it all.

Towanda says that it all stems from race, but Tamar is convinced it’s because of the way she is portrayed in the media.

I have to be honest here, I highly doubt that the pilot or any of the flight attendants pay attention to what the media is saying about Tamar, but hey, I could be completely wrong.

Delta has said that the stern way she was treated was due to her “unusual behavior” and refusal to obey the flight crew’s instructions.

None the less, the pilot came off very condescending and probably could have treated her much better.
