OITNB's Danielle Brooks Upset After Airline Agent Says She's 'Lucky' to Fly First Class
Danielle Brooks took to her Twitter account on Thursday morning (June 30) to share how she was upset about an airline agent calling her “lucky” to be flying first class.
The 26-year-old Orange Is the New Black actress, who is currently starring on Broadway in the Tony-winning musical The Color Purple, was on her way from New York City to Los Angeles for an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
“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,” Danielle tweeted.
Danielle was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in The Color Purple, but lost to Hamilton‘s Renee Elise Goldsberry.
