A black female doctor said a Delta flight attendant stopped her from aiding a passenger


Dr. Tamika Cross posted this over the weekend, detailing her experience on a Delta flight.

As the story broke, Dr. Cross garnered support on Twitter.

According to Dr. Cross, a flight attendant wanted to see her "credentials" before the attendant would let her up to help. 

Cross is listed as a fourth-year resident in the Department of of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Services at Lyndon Baines Johnson General Hospital. 

Several other young, black, female doctors tweeted in support.

Some people are very  unhappy about the situation.
