Comedian Michael Colyar has blasted United Airlines for allegedly booting him off a flight because he is black.

The “Barbershop” star claimed he was forced off his flight at Dulles International Airport in Virginia after accusing a stewardess of giving a white passenger preferential treatment.

The race row blew up after Mr Colyar, who won the talent show ‘Star Search’ 21 years ago, reportedly refused to allow his bag to be moved from an overhead storage bin so that a white woman could stow her bags there instead.
