Los Angeles, CAe – YG was visibly agitated after being kicked off an American Airlines flight on Monday night (August 13).
The Bompton-bred rapper was boarding a plane at the Los Angeles International Airport and heading for John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City when he was accused of being intoxicated by the flight crew.
In a video uploaded to Instagram, YG insists he’s sober and accuses the airline of being racist.
“Fuck American Airlines on blood,” he says. “They kicked me off the plane talking about I’m drunk … I’m soberer than a muthafucka. Racist ass muthafuckas. I’m sober!”
He wrote in the caption, “FUCK AMERICAN AIRLINES. RACIST FUCKS & IM SOBER PUSSY’S, YALL RACIST. FUCK ALL YALL @americanair.”
Shortly after sharing the video with his 4.4 million Instagram followers and 3.1 million Twitter followers, American Airlines responded from its Twitter account.
