The 34-year-old actress, best known for her role in the ABC drama “Lost,” said the bag contained her breast pump. (RELATED: Pilots Union Accuses American Airlines Of Compromising Safety, Skirting Rules)

“Dear @AmericanAir I was grabbed forcefully, my carry on bag ripped out of my hand @lax this morning by an AA employee. 3 witnesses,” Ravin tweeted Thursday. “By and @AmericanAir female employee. Please kindly dismiss this woman from @americanair employment.”


“Luckily our pilot was very kind and helpful and apologetic on woman’s behalf and assisted in getting her name and instructions on who to contact to report her,” she added.

“However there is no excuse for physical force being used on someone trying to take her breast pump carry on,” she continued. “Not Ok @AmericanAir #accountability”

American Airlines told Page Six it is investigating the claim.

“We are still looking into the situation,” AA wrote in a statement. “American Airlines’ policy is that passengers are allowed to have two carry-on items, and a breast pump is considered a medical device that can be brought on board in addition to carry-on items. The pump was eventually allowed on board, and we apologize to the customer for the inconvenience.”
