The comment left the mother feeling "confused" and "disoriented," the lawsuit reportedly said.

Despite Obioma's attempts to explain that she was taking her children to Canada to attend school and that they had appointments there that they could not miss, airline workers refused to let her family back on the plane.

The mother was left sobbing, according to Dallas News, and as a result, the family was reportedly forced to wait hours before they could get on another flight, which Obioma says caused them to miss important appointments in Ontario.

The lawsuit, which seeks punitive damages, accuses United Airlines of discriminating against Obioma and her children that day because they were black.

A spokesperson from United Airlines told Newsweek they have yet to be served with the lawsuit and could not comment on the alleged incident.

“We have not yet been served with this suit and due to the pending litigation involved in this matter, we’re unable to provide further comment," the spokesperson said.
