Machine Gun Kelly Gets Kicked Off Plane for Profanity on Guitar Case

DFW Airport officials were not happy with him.

Published August 31, 2015

Machine Gun Kelly, the self-proclaimed Wild Boy, may have offended some TSA officials in the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

In a series of Instagram posts, the Bad Boy signee was escorted off a plane because his guitar case had some “cuss words” written on it. According to his account, the police believed the phrases compared to the “seriousness of 9/11.” When he tried to explain that this was his art, they replied with an argument that they were disrespecting George Bush and his country. Um, don’t they know he hasn’t been president since 2009?

You can read his full posts below via his Instagram. Regardless of this latest incident, he still promises his sophomore album, General Admission, is on the way. 

i was just escorted off the airplane by police at the Dallas airport because of the writing on my guitar case. they had the nerve to compare the fact that there are a couple of cuss words written on it to the seriousness of 9/11. when i told them its my art, they told me "that's not art" and proceeded to go on some "George Bush is a saint and I'm disrespecting his country" type rant. Well let me make it clear Dallas Ft Worth airport: as long as i am an American citizen paying my taxes (and your over priced airline fare) every year I will continue to practice my freedom of speech, starting with this: F**K YOU MR. TSA MAN, F**K YOUR PRECIOUS GEORGE BUSH, AND F**K YOUR NARROW MIND. you should be honored that u even got to touch my guitar case. i hope your kids are MGK fans, buy tickets to a show to watch me play that guitar, and post pictures of the case hashtagging about how dope the art on it is. #freedom 

He followed up in his second post with, "don't ever let someone tell you what 'art' is or isn't. express yourself." is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
