US Airways has denied allegations from actor Brandon T. Jackson that he was unfairly treated by a flight attendant named "Dee," who he said called him the n-word. The 29-year-old went on a Twitter rant Monday night calling the airline company "racist" and running down the ordeal that followed him getting escorted off the plane. 

"Blogs please help me pick this up they called me the N-word and said i don't care if you're Obama's son us airways flight 629 attendant dee," he wrote. He later tweeted that the cops questioned him and that he was stranded at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

An airline rep tells a completely different story of the incident and says Jackson was being "disruptive," according to TMZ. "The disruptive behavior started with loud music being played by Mr. Jackson at his seat. He was asked several times to turn down the music. Additional erratic behavior was observed and that is when the crew made the decision to stop serving [alcohol to Brandon]."

Jackson has not responded to the statement made by US Airways as of yet.
