Transgender journalist kicked off United flight for wearing Hat and T.shirt with an upside-down American flag
A black transgender journalist, Amanda Stevens, took to social media to rant after being kicked off a United flight from Albany to Chicago, for wearing A$AP Rocky ’s superhero Black Panter brand with an upside-down American flag on it.
According to one of her tweets, Amanda, who boarded the United flight yesterday to go cover the world championship tournament for an online battle game League of Legends, claimed she was racially abused when she was told she would discomfort the pilot with the outfit on.
