The Orange Is The New Black star is airing her frustration out on Twitter with airline personnel who made controversial comments on her flying arrangements.
“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,” Brooks tweeted.
Brooks is on one of the biggest shows of the year and already has two SAG Awards under her belt, so I’m pretty sure she isn’t a stranger to flying first class. Twitter users were outraged at the treatment and assumptions of Brooks and quickly jumped to her defense.
