Eric Andre says he was racially profiled at the Atlanta Airport
Eric Andre has alleged that he was racially profiled at an Atlanta airport today (April 21), as Okayplayer and TMZ point out. Andre wrote about his experience at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in a series of tweets posted today. In a tweet to the Atlanta Police Department, Andre wrote, “I was just racially profiled by two plainclothes officers from the Atlanta PD in Delta Terminal T3 at Atlanta Airport. They stopped me on the way down the bridge to the plane for a “random” search and asked if they could search me for drugs. I said no. Attention. “Here you will find Andre’s contributions.
Then Andre tweeted that he could finally get on his plane. “I’m fine now, but I want this to be reported,” he wrote, and later tweeted to Atlanta Mayor Keisha Bottoms to alert her to his situation. “At that moment, I was the only POC online,” he wrote, turning to Bottoms. “I know this is not the PD that you want to represent at your airports.”
“Sorry to hear about your experience,” Bottoms tweeted to Andre. “I understand that this wasn’t APD, it was one of the many agencies that work at the airport.” Andre later tweeted that he had heard that the officers were from the Drug Enforcement Administration.
