Sheryl Lee Ralph has been an award-winning TV, Broadway and movie star for decades. Like many celebrities, she’s had to travel quite a bit and claims to be a 3 Million Miler with Delta Air Lines. However she’s apparently giving up that status, at least for the moment, and recently switched to American Airlines.
Why? Because she was late to her flight and the Delta employee wouldn’t accommodate her.
On Sunday October 30th, Ralph posted a video to Twitter with the details of the less-than-pleasant experience she had with Delta. She apparently missed her flight because an airline employee wouldn’t allow her to check her bags four minutes past the check-in time.
“Remember Divas, be as kind as you can for as long as you can! @Delta @AmericanAir,” she wrote in her tweeted.
“I went to the airline – you know, the one I’m a three million miler on – to check my bags and I was four minutes late because they need 45 minutes to check you in,” the actress/singer explained, oozing sweetness. “And the woman said there is absolutely nothing we can do for you.”
Ralph’s response: “Um, it’s only four minutes; I’ve checked in on flights later than this.”
She then threw shade at the airline and said she’s flying on American.

I guess she learned that rules are rules. Apparently even if you’re an Emmy award winner, Tony and Drama Desk nominee, AND a 3 Million Miler.
The Twitterverse, of course, all had something to say. American Airlines, not surprisingly, quickly chimed in:
Some agreed with the Abbott Elementary star:
But there were plenty who said the airline was in the right:
Those last two, though – talk about throwing shade…
Who do you think was in the right?
