Tamar Braxton has responded to a Delta Airlines statement blaming her "unusual behavior” and her refusal to follow a flight attendant's instructions during a recent flight.

Tamar's sister Towanda accused a Delta pilot of ridiculing Tamar after the pilot left the safety of the reinforced cockpit to deal with the part-time singer's unruly behavior.

"@tamarbraxton got ridiculed by a pilot for flying while black on Delta," Towanda wrote in an Instagram post dated July 28. "Wow! I guess being a diamond and double million miler don’t matter... @delta Shame on you... #WhyArePeopleSoMad #flyingwhileblack #smh".

But Delta released a statement siding with the pilot, who followed all protocols and procedures -- except for leaving the safety of the reinforced cockpit -- to deal with Braxton's childish behavior.

“It’s crucial for the safety of every flight for customers to be willing and able to follow crew instructions. When these customers exhibited some unusual behavior and refused to acknowledge our flight attendant’s instructions, the captain addressed them directly to ensure the safety and security of the entire flight,” Delta said in a statement to Fox News.

Tamar posted a cryptic message on Instagram in response to Delta (see the message below).

Delta said the pilot left the cockpit to scold Tamar "out of an abundance of caution and to keep the flight from being delayed".

All cockpit doors were reinforced after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City. But impenetrable doors can prove fatal if the flight crew is locked outside the cockpit and can't get back in.

In 2015, a Germanwings co-pilot intentionally crashed his plane killing everyone on board after the captain left the cockpit to take a break. The captain tried unsuccessfully to break down the door with an ax.

    Tamar looking like EJ Johnson.......and this .......

    "“Wow! I guess being a diamond and double million miler don’t matter… "

    Nope Towanda, it DOES NOT MATTER. If Tamar was all diamond and double million and shit...then why is she taking commercial flights?? Where her jet at?? Where her first class status at???? I can 1000% see Tamar acting like an entitled diva on that flight.....she needs to stop and be humble. I think she mad cause the pilot got her ALL THE WAY TOGETHER.....AND DISMISSED HER ASS...he did not harass her.....he checked her ass....and for real...she probably needed it. Folks kill me with their sense of entitlement....FOH!!

  • Miss Thang

    Tamar, you need hair, boo. Not all of us can rock this low cut smh

  • cleopatra04

    I don't like videos that don't show the whole story. What transpired with the flight attendant that caused the pilot to have to leave the cockpit to deal with your ass. If you are flying on a commercial airline act like you have some sense. If you are on medication for any kind of mental disorder then take your meds before boarding. No one has time to be dealing with foolishness on an airplane.

  • Soda

    I can't stand "Do you know who I am" attitude people.

  • KLo

    Im with Delta because Tamar is known to be over the top and full of drama. Yeah, I said it https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/29e0b82b5d7b062b2a1c01020c29d961be6d103e3f57fbcfa432cb92a0d57878.gif

  • EMILY POST

    What happened? I know nothing to draw any conclusions even after the video. I love Tamar but I can’t wait until her hair grows back the bald head is not one of my favs from her but she’s beautiful anyways though so it don’t matter.

  • HIS4EVA

  • Yardgirl

    Me either! A pompous VP at my job said this to a COP!! He was so used to bullying everyone that he forgot where he was.

  • Yardgirl

    This is exactly what I said, I need more facts. I fly a lot for business and ninjas be acting like they are on their own private jet (all races!!) I have yet to be delayed by any ruckus, but the day it happens I am going to lose it, especially if I miss my connection!!

  • Karen Brady

    Sit down Tamar. And hush. Exhausting.

  • Soda

    I think there was a dispute between Tamar and the flight attendant about Tamar's carry-on bag. Tamar probably didn't speak kindly and the attendant got the pilot to come out and say, "What you not gon' do is..."

  • the guest

    Tamar's hair is stunning! Best she's ever looked.

  • Miss Thang

    If you are on medication for any kind of mental disorder then take your meds before boarding. No one has time to be dealing with foolishness on an airplane.

  • WhoKnew

    Wayment. Her sistah Towanna the man said:

    “Wow! I guess being a diamond and double million miler don’t matter…"

    Ummm. Reality check. being a diamond or double million mile customer does not entitle you to act like a fool in public especially on a friggin airplane dummy. Sounds like they're running out of story lines and this was a publicity stunt. Tamar need to go feed the open mouth breathing husband she claim she was divorcing and STFU. No talent ass having self.

  • chlujo

    It doesn't help that she has a reputation that proceeds her. Therefore it's believeable even if it isn't true. Sad but true.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Broke up with a friend over this. High profile job here locally til he recently retired. called rest's, concert venues etc AHEAD of time to tell them HE is coming. Or when we got there name dropped etc. And one time that ONE spot...DID NOT CARE. And he acted a whole ass FOOL do you hear me? Nigga pull rank on your OWN time. I left (popular jazz spot) and cut off contact.

  • Trace da Ace

    eww.... me neither...cause my reply to that it " naw the question of the moment is, do I GIVE A FUCK who you are.,....NERP!!! "

  • Trace da Ace

    bet his dumb ass STILL got a ticket.....lol

  • CookieMobster

    Flying while black?!?!? This makes me so mad and takes away from those who really suffer from discrimination. When you are acting a fool and someone gets you together that doesn't mean you are being discriminated against.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Yes that man did. Tomas said it!! He went there. See that's that entitlement behavior. Da Capt wasn't buyin it

  • FukkFolks2018

    Dear Tamar:

    If you indeed had a flying while black incident Im sorry. Something tells me you didnt, but I dont want to dismiss you. If this is NOT sucha incident then SHAME on you for this shit. You have this man on camera and posted his likeness attached to a phony story and some BS. Not okay.

    You still look like Janice the Muppet even without hair. And yes. EJ Johnson too

    Your sister in Christ,

    Kdub

  • Carrington

    Whatever it was, the pilot doesn't leave the cockpit to address a passenger unless a flight attendant comes to the principals office. Long and short of it is Tamar likely did as she does with everyone else... plays victim and her sister co-signed her instead of checking her.

  • Yui
  • Reina1718

    I heard they said no fones & what she did was put a blanket over her head & stood on her fone so the stewardess had no choice but to tell the pilot...they wont move if ur talking on ur cell

  • Reina1718

    I heard it was bcuz of a cell fone she was suppose to get off the fone before he leaves or have it on airplane mode & she continued talking after the flight attendant told her put it away...she then put a blanket over her head & stood on her fone so they had no choice but to tell pilot

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Tamar is the boy who cried wolf.

    We don’t believe her because we KNOW she’s extra af. ‘Paperback Toya’ said she was an “under the table, over the top” äss woman.

    If she’s right and we’re wrong, it’s still her fault LOL.

  • Soda

    ? Somebody said this Delta flight was gon' be sunny skies,
    I'm special cause I got frequent flyer miles, I guess somebody lied
    We started discussin' it, to fightin' then don't touch me please
    Then it's let's stop the madness, the pilot chastised me ?

  • Carrington

    LMAO... I was having dinner with a celebrity friend and the waiter kept coming to our table asking him if HE was OK and needed anything. At this point, I became the DIVO. This MF never ONCE looked in my direction until I went off. FIRST off, MF... HE ain't even paying, which means HE ain't leaving the tip. That's your first mistake. Your OTHER mistake is that I'm a local, so I might come back - the odds of THIS MF coming back are slim as hell. Thirdly, your tip will be based upon the service AH got... NOT him.
    He tried to sneak a tip on the table and I picked it straight up and put it in my pocket and left that MF $2.00.

  • Yardgirl

    After posting I realized I had left that part off. Yes ma’am he DID get a ticket!! Massachusetts turnpike state troopers DGAF who you are ??

  • Alextra Ballard

    Tamar thousands of feet in the air and still don't know how to act. The mofo Captain had to come out the "cockpit" to deal with her and Tomas. This chick irks my nerve with that boisterous,defiant,entitled attitude. That is precisely why she is morphing into Ej cuz she don't know how to ack lady-like.

  • Bashi22

    Tamar Braxton has a negative energy all around her, she need's a spiritual cleanse ( sage, santo paulo wood,frankincense and myrrh ect.) . I would hope her child would have calm her down a bit, but that didn't work. Also Vince lost some weight I think that would have change her attitude , being that he would have more energy to give her some proper sexual healing. I thought one on her main issue was not being satisfy by her husband sexually. Please don't come for me P.S

  • WhoKnew

    Yep and good for him.

  • Connie

    As I said in the doula post below, her meek and pitiful 'yes' in response to Principal Pilot was hilarious. Plus I do believe sister umba posted the video more out of glee that Tamar was 'ridiculed' by Principal Pilot. The sisters can't stand her spoiled, entitled azz.

    I never knew this fukka had been calling all these places ahead of time until we were ON our way to this spot and he whips out his phone and called. I and another friend of ours had BEEN asking had he made reservations. He kept saying we didnt NEED any. Then you call and play that mess in front of us? And we TOLD him it wasnt cool THAT day. I still kept giving him benefit of the doubt. He showed out so BAD that night at the jazz club. Two times now? Nah Im DONE.

  • WutizstillHERE!

When the server didn't comply, this arrogant fool told the woman..."that's why you're on that side of the counter and I'm on this side." Never before would I have encouraged a food service worker to spit in a diner's plate round the back than that day!...kmdt!

  • dru and neil

    There are a lot of people online trying to defend Tamar. They either are die hard fans or have never flown a commercial airline. Flying is not the same as taking a damn Greyhound bus! If the pilot comes out of the cockpit to address a passenger, it’s SERIOUS. That woman was being a childish brat and deserved to get dealt with.

  • dru and neil

    Following this story will make your head hurt. So many people screaming “racism!” or saying he shouldn’t have “spoke to her like a child.” Yes, the hell, he should have! That pilot doesn’t have time for an idiot passenger who wont take the blanket off her head while the flight attendants are trying to get the safety procedures briefed. That pilot is busy preparing for a flight, instead he’s got to address a 40 year old brat of a woman? He SHOULD be agitated while speaking to her!

  • dru and neil

    This story also exposed the amount of folks in the black community who have never flown on an airplane, don’t know the procedures, but still feel the need to give an opinion.

  • dru and neil

    How should he have spoken to her? She is causing a pilot to leave the cockpit, do you know how big a deal that is?

  • dru and neil

    Exactly, this is the real world not one of her freaking reality shows.

  • dru and neil

    They hadn’t even got off the ground yet. They were trying to, but the attendants had to get the pilot to gather Tamar’s ass up. Now she’s crying victim. Pitiful ass.

  • dru and neil

    Damn shame she can’t put her cell phone away long enough for flight attendants to do their job. You can use you stupid phone once you are in the damn air at altitude, the Braxton’s damn well know that.

  • dru and neil

    There was no racism at all you’re right. She got a stern talking to because she deserved it!

  • dru and neil

    I’m with Delta based off the sheer fact that a PILOT left the cockpit to address a passenger. That’s unheard of! You know something was wrong on her part, they don’t have time for that sh*t while preparing to take off!

Not to mention that other people on that flight were being held up by her dumbassery too. Her refusal to follow protocol could have been interpreted as a threat. She lucky he didn’t have her azz removed. So no...she’s not getting a pass. Tamar acted a whole fool and got exactly what she deserved. ?

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_
  • ViolettaBliss

    Although I tend to not side with spoiled celebs, Airline employees are on some seriously racist BS. Three months ago I flew to Europe in first class and at the end of the flight I was accused of stealing Bose head phones that they provide to first class flyers. I use my own headphones for sanitary reasons and did not even notice that the headphones were not there. Before we landed the stewardesses went through first class cabin and collected the headphones and I simply told them I never received any they basically said it was not possible and tried to accuse me of stealing them. It took every fiber of my being to not lose it on them.......
