On July 7, the group boarded a plane in Atlanta headed Des Moines, Iowa for a performance. Allegedly while sitting in first class, Takeoff did not stow his book bag in the overhead compartment. After several requests from the flight staff were not met, the plane taxied back to the gate and escorted him off the aircraft.
The rest of the crew wasn’t having it so they too deboarded. In a video shot by one of their entourage members, Migos are seen calmly discussing the problem with security as the man behind the camera threatens to sue for the cost of the tickets and any lost monies from missing the scheduled show.
Quavo, Takeoff and Offset were all reportedly asleep and therefore the flight attendant’s appeals were met by deaf ears. Their management contacted TMZ citing that the “Bad and Boujee” rappers were racially profiled by Delta.
The threats of litigation must have put a scare into the airline as the group later took to their Instagram account stating that they were offered a empty plane to make good. “RIGHT IS RIGHT WRONG IS WRONG,” the caption read. “Thanks @delta For Making It YOUR job to get US to our concert On TIME!!! W H O L E P L A N E ✈️.”
Glad to see cooler heads prevailed and Offset didn’t have to roll up his silk sleeve a second time.
