Not ok! ‘Orange Is The New Black’ star Danielle Brooks was not having it when an airport employee showed surprise that she was flying first class. Get the details here!
Danielle Brooks, 26, from the hit show ‘Orange Is The New Black‘ felt insulted when an airport gate agent congratulated the actress for having a first class ticket. She took to Twitter to let out her frustration and some fans were not happy either!
Danielle took to Twitter on June 30 to tell the world just how she felt after feeling discredited by the employee. “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,” she said in a candid tweet with a disappointed emoji face. Danielle has since deleted her outspoken tweet.
Some fans were quick to bat for the Georgia native, posting opinionated tweets of their own in her defense. One Twitter user responded to Danielle’s tweet with, “…….the ignorance is real,” while others sparked a bit of a debate and didn’t think the comment was harsh at all. Another Twitter user said, “It’s an expression, and a nice one. It is said more to politely indicate an envy of the other person’s status.”
Other posts Danielle hasn’t deleted? — Her amazing and funny photos, especially on the set of OITNB. The 26-year-old plays Tasha “Taystee” Jefferson, a Litchfield Penitentiary inmate on the hit series and has been a cast member since it’s debut in 2013.
Danielle is currently playing Sofia in the Broadway sensation, The Color Purple, which earned her a Tony nomination for the first time ever. She was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical category where Elise Goldsberry of Hamilton ended up taking home the award.
She hasn’t let that get in the way of her upbeat spirit and busy schedule though. Danielle keeps her social media followers up-to-date with her exciting life with backstage pictures and casual yacht outings. The Netflix star was pulling double duty not too long ago when she was filming OITNB and working on The Color Purple at the same time — YOU GO GIRL! Danielle is currently busy filming season 5 of the fan-obsessed show, and we can’t wait to see what she has in store for us!
