A man accused of not belonging in the priority boarding line at an airport by a woman who couldn’t believe he belonged there because of his appearance, delivered a snappy put-down that reportedly had onlookers cheering.
African-American music executive Emmit Eclass Walker said he was waiting to board his flight at Ronald Reagan Washington Airport when a blonde, Caucasian woman challenged his presence in the priority line.
“Excuse me, I believe you may be in the wrong place you need to let us thru [sic.] This line is for priority boarding,” the woman said, according to Walker’s social media post, which has since received considerable attention.
Walker rebuffed the woman by explaining that he was well aware of the fact that he was standing in a priority lane. He then allegedly produced his first-class ticket as proof that he belonged there.
The woman apparently refused to accept the explanation, and continued her charge.
“He must be military or something, but we paid for our seats so he still should have to wait,” she said, according to the Facebook post.
Walker then fired off a scorching comeback that allegedly had people around him in stitches.
“Nope to big to ever be in anybodies military [sic.] I’m just a [expletive] with money,” Walker said, using a racial slur.
Walker shot a selfie, typed out the crosstalk and posted. At the time of writing, his post has received over 740,000 likes and been shared around 260,000 times.
