Comedian Eric Andre claims he was racially profiled by authorities at the Atlanta airport, and he documented much of incident on Twitter.
Although some of the tweets have since been deleted, he shared many of them on his Instagram Story.
"I was just racially profiled in the Atlanta airport. Stopped by two white cops who asked if I had drugs for no reason," he wrote on April 21. "…They asked to search my bag with no warrant or [probable] cause and I said no. Please be careful out there.Tell your POC coworkers in Atlanta."
Eric also made Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms aware of the situation, tagging her in several posts.
"They let me go. I'm on the plane in the air. I'm fine now but I want this reported. Please any Atlanta lawyer reach out to me," he tweeted and used the hashtag "Jim Crow Georgia."
"At that moment, I was the only POC on line," he continued. "@KeishaBottoms I know this isn't the PD you want representing in your airports."
There was a question as to whether the men who allegedly stopped Eric were Atlanta police officers or Drug Enforcement Administration officials. Eric later suspected they were DEA officials.
"So glad to hear Atlanta PD doesn't operate like this, but who was the agency that interrogated me and why does ATL allow an agency with those kinds of random search rules to operate in one of the busiest airports in the world?" he wrote. "The established authority in the city doesn't do this, who does the DEA think they are to do it themselves?"
