‘Orange is the New Black’ Star Danielle Brooks Calls Out Ticketing Agent

Danielle Brooks ticket agent
Orange is the New Black star Danielle Brooks was on her way through the airport when a comment from an airport employee caught her totally off guard.

Brooks, who is known for her role as Tasha ‘Taystee’ Jefferson in the hit Netflix series as well as her successful (still running) stint on Broadway as Miss Sophia in The Color Purple, was headed to LA for a day when she experienced what she perceived as a snide, somewhat discriminatory comment from a ticketing agent.

The 26-year-old actress wasted no time recounting the incident on Twitter, writing “I hate when gate agents look at me like I’ve never flown first class and say “You’re in first class, lucky you!”???? really tho”. The now-deleted tweet blew up, with many posting their opinions on the matter.

Danielle has since come out saying that the entire Twitter situation was blown “wayyy out of proportion!” and is no doubt hoping the all the attention it received will quickly subside.
