Days ago a family in Los Angeles claimed they were kicked off a Delta flight because they’re Asian. Other Asians took the same flight without incident.
Now hip hop group Migos says they were kicked off Delta flight DL1532 from Atlanta to Des Moines on Friday because racism, while Delta explains they “repeatedly refused to follow crew member instructions to buckle their seatbelts and stow carry-on items in the overhead bins.”
The flight returned to the gate and “Takeoff was reportedly the only one kicked off the flight, but Quavo and Offset, as well as their manager, also left in solidarity.” Then this altercation ensued:
[T]he three members of the group arrived in their first class seats and promptly fell asleep. (Hence why they couldn’t respond to crew instructions for Takedown to move his bag into the overhead compartment, as per airline regulations.) The manager accused the airline of engaging in racial profiling in its handling of the group.
The rappers, who complained the incident would cause them to miss their show in Des Moines, were rebooked on another Delta flight — DL1405 — with arrived after 11 p.m. Friday night. Their show was scheduled for 10 p.m.
