Rap group Migos kicked off Delta flight, claims racial profiling

Bad and booted.

Before a Delta flight could take off rap trio Migos were kicked off a plane headed to Des Moines, Iowa.

The incident happed Friday night as “Bad & Boujee” rappers Takeoff, Quavo and Offset were traveling from Atlanta to Iowa for a concert.

According to TMZ, a flight attendant approached the rap group on the plane and asked Takeoff to move his book bag from out of the aisle and place it in the overhead bin.

A spokesman for the company said Migos “repeatedly refused to follow crew member instructions to buckle their seatbelts and stow carry-on in overhead bins,” which resulted in Takeoff being booted from the airliner.

Offset, Quavo and their manager also got off the plane.

TMZ reports that the rappers’ manager is telling a completely different story and claims the 21-year-old rapper didn’t move his book bag out of the aisle because he was asleep.

The manager believes the rap group was racially profiled.

In video posted by TMZ, the manager is heard telling a Delta crew member that they were going to sue because the group did nothing wrong.

“We have been so calm right now,” the manager says. “We need to see the captain. You kicked us off a plane for doing absolutely nothing.”

The manager was also upset that Migos was going to miss its concert because of the incident.

Clearly everything has been resolved. Migos took to social media to tell fans that Delta gave them an entire plane to themselves.

“RIGHT IS RIGHT WRONG IS WRONG. Thanks @delta for making it YOUR job to get US to our concert on TIME!!! WHOLEPLANE.”
