Actor Marlon Wayans hit out at United Airlines following a heated exchange that got him kicked off a flight just hours before he was due on stage.
The “White Chicks” star recounted his horror travel experience with fans on Friday, telling them that he had to miss his performance in Kansas City over checking a bag.
“Bro claimed I had too many bags, so I complied and consolidated them he was like, ‘Oh, now you have to check that bag.’ Bye. I’m in seat 2A come holla,” the 50-year-old wrote alongside an Instagram video.
“Most agents are always love, but every now and then, you come across BAD PEOPLE. This was one of them. @united this type of employee should never work at your company,” he ranted.
After a heated exchange with a member of staff, Wayans said he received a citation for disturbing the peace from the Denver Police Department, TMZ reports.
The actor then confirmed the outlet’s report, sharing a screenshot of TMZ’s article on Instagram.Wayans later posted a photo where he is seen sitting on an American Airlines flight as he continued his rant.marlonwayans/Instagram
“Dude tried to lie and say I assaulted him,” Wayans wrote to his 6 million followers. “The video clearly shows I never touched him. He was desperate to try to have some authority. I’ve flown over 15,000,000 miles in my lifetime, and I rarely have had problems. Anyone knows who knows me knows I’m a mild-mannered dude.”
“He asked me to consolidate my bags, and I complied,” he went on. “Then, said now I have to check the bag because now since I consolidated it into one bag it was too big. At that point, I said, ‘See, now you’re just f–king with me.’
“So I grabbed my ticket off the counter got on the plane. This was harassment, and I will make enough noise to be sure all my friends and family and peoples stop flying @united this will be a corporate matter.”

“Fly where you’re respected, protected and loved. @americanair concierge key!!! No more @united for me,” Wayans said. “Y’all treated a first class brother real disrespectful . I need answers. And they owe me money for missing the shows in KC. This won’t stop until i get some apologies and there are changes.”
In a follow-up post on Instagram, Wayans shared a clip from “White Chicks,” quoting the famous line, “I’m soooo freakin’ pissed!”

“He was rude and wrong. I know so many people feel like this on a daily basis. What happened to genuine kindness. @united you owe me for my inconvenience, for my missed shows and most of all you owe my disappointed fans. After you compensate me you should give all the fans affected by my no show vouchers for free trips.”
Wayans was scheduled to perform the first of three sold-out nights at the Improv Comedy Theatre in Kansas City.
