Windsor Locks, CT – Kamaiyah had a few choice words for the media following her arrest at Connecticut’s Bradley International Airport on Friday (May 11). After posting bail, the Bay Area rapper hit Instagram to address the incident.
“Fuck the media trying to paint me as a angry black woman like I’m not out here constantly giving to the youth,” she captioned the photo. “as least y’all all learned one thing today black women don’t play about their bonnets #OutOnBail #4hunnid.”
The local news outlet WFSB described the 26-year-old as “irate” and “aggressive.”
In her Instagram Story later that night, Kamaiyah shared a text exchange with her mother, laughing off the entire situation.
Kamaiyah was taken into custody early Friday morning after she refused to take off her head gear during a security checkpoint. She reportedly used “vulgar language” toward the TSA agents and a trooper on the scene.
She soon posted bail and was told she’d have to appear in Enfield Superior Court on June 6 when she’ll faces charges of interfering with police and second-degree breach of peace.
