Comedian and star of the hit film “Bad Trip” Eric Andre recently took to social media to inform fans that he was harassed by two police officers while trying to catch a flight at Atlanta Hartsfield–Jackson International Airport. In a series of tweets, Andre explains how the officers were trying to stop him for a random drug search.

“I was just racially profiled by two plainclothes Atlanta PD officers 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 told them no. Be careful,” Andre’s initial tweet read.

After Andre made it on the plane safely, he sent out a tweet letting everyone know he was okay, but wanted the situation to be reported.

Tagging Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms: “They let me go. I’m on the plane in the air. I’m fine now but I want this reported. Please any Atlanta lawyer reach out to me. @KeishaBottoms #racialprofiling #jimcrowgeorgia terminal T3 Atlanta airport.”

He continued, “At that moment, I was the only POC on line. @KeishaBottoms I know this isn’t the PD you want representing in your airports. #racism #racialprofiling #jimcrow #racistwarondrugs @delta.”

“If anyone is at Atlanta airport gate T3 @delta let me know the officers names so I can file a complaint.”

No more information on the situation has been released at this time, but we will continue on with this story once more information surfaces.
