Nothing to laugh about. Marlon Wayan got into a messy row with United Airlines, claiming he was “targeted” by the airline over their two-bag policy.
THE horror movie star, 50, was cited for disturbing the peace at Denver airport last week, the Associated Press reported Monday, June 12, after the comedian took to Instagram a day before explaining his version of the story.
The drama began on Friday, June 9, when Wayans went to bundle three bags into two, in accordance with the airline’s two-bag policy, he explained via Instagram on Sunday, June 11.
“So either customer service or United Airlines corporate contacts me. And I don’t know what kind of corporate culture there is…your customer is always right,” the Air began the actor, explaining that he was ready to replay the video of the incident in order to prove his point.
“I am ready to replay this video, to put the sound. This man was wrong, and I was targeted. Period. And then the company called me and they argued, “Well, you know, there’s a two-bag policy.” “Good, so I took my three bags and turned them into two”, white chicks The actor recalled the conversation, adding that he was told there was “no more room” on the flight for extra luggage. “So why do all these people before me and all these people after me have two bags and three bags? Interesting. See the video.”
Wayans captioned the video with another plea to the airline, demanding the incident be “fixed”.
“@united needs to do better. Don’t call me or defend an employee for targeting me,” the A Haunted House star wrote. “This incident needs to be fixed. I will not rest until I am properly compensated for this serious inconvenience. Brother a liar.
In a statement to We Weekly Monday, United Airlines did not mention Wayans by name but did refer to an incident at the airport on Friday.
“On Friday in Denver, a customer who was told he should check his bag at the gate instead pushed a United employee to the jetway and attempted to board the plane. The customer did not flown on United to its destination.
Hours later, Wayans followed up his initial post with a shoutout to Delta Airlines and a video of him thanking gate attendants. In the caption, he revealed that the incident cost him money and time with his fans, as his shows in Kansas City were reportedly canceled after the delay.
“Feels good to be treated well today. Thank you @delta for rinsing the bad taste of @united from my mouth. “Only people tell the difference.” @americanair is great too. So accommodating,” THE Little man the actor captioned the Monday clip. “The corporate call I received was insensitive and again unaccommodating. Customer service should relieve and respect customers and not protect the employee who abused their authority. You disturbed me, you cost me money and more importantly, you left my fans in suspense. You. We all owe.
Wayans further joked that he was going to make a comedy special out of the drama.
