Published May 28, 2014

After witnessing the drama that erupted between Floyd Mayweather and T.I. at a Las Vegas area Fatburger over the weekend, Benzino stirred up some trouble of his own. The Love & Hip Hop star launched a verbal tirade against a flight attendant after he was kicked off a flight from Sin City to Chicago, TMZ reports.

According to eyewitnesses, Benzino was asked to leave the plane during a stopover in Chicago on his flight from Vegas to Atlanta. The reason why is unclear, but the flight attendant reportedly questioned Benzino about his seat and before long, Benzino was screaming an expletive-filled rant and crying racism. He called the flight attendant "a racist motherf*****" and a "racist bastard."

Benzino reportedly left the plane without further incident and police were not called to the scene. The reality star, who was shot by his nephew at his mother's funeral this past April, had reportedly been partying with heavyweight champ Mayweather in Sin City over the weekend and was present when Mayweather got into a brawl with T.I. at the burger joint.
