The black doctor who accused American Airlines of racism after she was removed from her plane and told to cover up her 'assets' with a blanket before re-boarding has doubled down on her furious criticism of the airline, insisting that she was targeted by staff because of her race and size. 

Appearing on GMA on Thursday morning, Tisha Rowe, 37, a doctor and mother-of-one from Houston, Texas, recalled the 'humiliation' that she felt when she was asked to leave the flight bound for Miami from Jamaica, on which she was traveling with her eight-year-old son. 

'I was so humiliated, I walked down the aisle with my head down,' she said of the incident, which became a viral scandal when Tisha spoke out about it on Twitter on June 30, after arriving back home from her vacation.

I SAID IT BEFORE, DO NOT FLY AMERICAN AIRLINES!!!! One of the worst airlines in the system. On many occasions they left me stranded ,gave me bad service, horribles stewardess, there is a reason why they are one of the lowest cheapest airline fares out there.

I need more  information on this because if she was in business class or first class then they do have a dress code and I have seen many passengers reprimanded for not wearing the appropriate attire. Now if she was in coach and told to cover up then she should file a lawsuit because I have seen passengers with see through outfits and shorts that can be mistaken as panties.

Everyone, this is not about getting paid or black people being their worst enemy. This is a CLEAR sign of racism. The woman is a doctor, which I'm sure she identified herself as such. Made no difference. I've seen people get on a plane with less clothing than the doctor had on, without a second look.
