‘OITNB’ Star Danielle Brooks Congratulated For Flying First Class


Danielle Brooks had to put up with some shade at the airport yesterday and reacted accordingly.

The Orange Is the New Black star was headed to L.A. to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and, upon boarding her Hollywood-bound flight, she had a not-so-pleasant interaction.

“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 26-year-old tweeted with a side-eye emoji.

Is it really so crazy to think this actress, who has won two Screen Actors Guild Award as part of the Netflix cast and was just nominated for her first-ever Tony Award for The Color Purple, would be sitting in an upgraded seat?

Short answer? No.
