Eric Andre Says He Was Racially Profiled in the Atlanta Airport
Earlier today, comedian Eric Andre says he was racially profiled by plainclothes officers in the Atlanta airport. Now, he's seeking help from Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, as well as lawyers.

In a series of tweets posted Wednesday, Andre explained that he was singled out for a random drug search while he was trying to board his flight at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Andre added that he was the only person of colour in line for the flight, explaining that he did not consent to the drug search. He went on to say that he was disappointed in the way he was treated in Atlanta considering he filmed most of his recent hit Bad Trip there.

Andre ended up boarding the flight and explained that he was fine but wanted to file a report. He asked out for help from the mayor along with further legal advice.
