A black female activist who was forcefully ejected out of plane following bitter dispute over seating arrangement speaks out on her ordeal.

Tamika Mallory, founder of New York Women's March, was allegedly involved in raucous spat with one of the American Airlines’ customer service representative over seat before the flight’s pilot approached and rebuked her.

“I was racially profiled. It definitely was a white male aggression. I was singled out, disrespected, and he was trying to intimidate me,” Mallory disclosed to New York Daily following the dramatic incident.
