He really wanted First Class.
A cell phone video has emerged, via TMZ, showing “Straight Outta Compton” star Jason Mitchell losing his temper and launching into an angry tirade at passengers and crew on a Delta flight.
Mitchell, who also appeared in this year’s “Kong: Skull Island” and “Detroit,” attempted to board his flight and sit in what he claimed was a double-booked, first-class seat.
In the process, he launched into a profanity-laced tirade at a fellow passenger and the flight crew.

The hapless passenger got yelled at when he was listening in as Mitchell made a phone call to rant about his treatment.
“Am I talking to you? F—ing racist!” Mitchell shouted at the passenger.
Flight attendants then tried to calm the 30-year-old actor down. “I’ll bat the f–k outta you! Unless you sitting next to children or anything else,” Mitchell continued yelling at the passenger.
Just as Mitchell calmed down and assured everyone that he would not continue to be a problem, a deplane announcement came from Delta, saying that law enforcement was to be brought on board to handle the situation.

Mitchell loses it again and shouts that he has “things to do” the following day.
As TMZ reports, the airline said that Mitchell’s seat was in fact not over-booked but that the actor had missed his original flight and was given a “comfort+” seat on a standby flight.
Complex reports thatMitchell was cuffed and detained at the airport but was soon released with no charges filed against him.
The actor hasn’t commented publicly about the incident, though he did tweet an image from “Half Baked” that basically summarizes it. Find it here.
