Compton rapper YG left a seriously unhappy customer of American Airlines on Monday night (August 13) after he blasted the airline in a new video for booting him from his flight to New York.
Their reason? The “Stay Dangerous” rap star was allegedly intoxicated. But according to YG, the accusation is simply a cover-up for the real issue at hand: racism.
He was making his way off the flight with a few other people, presumably from his crew, while calling out the crew for their allegations against him. “They kicked me off the plane, they’re talking about ‘I’m drunk!’” he continued. Let him tell it, he’s “sober than a motherf**ker,” and they’re discriminating against him.
And they heard him loud and clear. In response, the company asked that he “meet [them] in DMS with more info” for his complaint, explaining that they value a culture of respect with interactions between customers and team members.
But according to TMZ, this came after they told reporters from the site that he was dismissed from the flight “due to being intoxicated.”
So, American Airlines, now that we’ve got YG’s side of it all—what is the truth?
