Brandon T. Jackson Passenger Backs Him Up … He Wasn’t Drunk!

"Tropic Thunder" star Brandon T. Jackson was

kicked off his US Airways flight for no reason

— at least according to the passenger sitting

next to him on the plane, who tells TMZ,

Jackson was NOT drunk as the airline claims.As

we previously reported, Brandon was escorted

off his flight from NYC to LA on Monday

during a layover in Phoenix … after flight

attendants accused him of being drunk and

disorderly.Brandon went off on Twitter after

the incident, claiming a flight attendant

accused him of being drunk, hurled a racial

epithet at him — and for good measure added,

"I don"t care if you're Obama's son — get in

your seat!!"We spoke to Darrell Howard, who

was sitting next to Brandon, and he says he

doesn't recall hearing the Obama comment …

but insists Jackson was NOT drunk — and

had no more than two drinks (Jack and gingers)

during the 5-and-a-half hour flight from NYC

to Phoenix. Howard also says Brandon shared

a few scripts with him and another passenger

— backing up the actor's claim that he told the

angry flight attendant he was just "rehearsing

lines" with the people next to him. Howard

added Brandon was nothing but nice, and he

was shocked to see the flight attendant snap

the way she did.US Airways has said it stands

behind its flight attendants.
