The rap group Migos and their manager were kicked off their flight from Atlanta to Des Moines, Iowa, on Friday for allegedly failing to comply with crew member instructions.
Delta said in a statement to <i>Variety </i>that the group was removed after one of the members Takeoff failed to put on his seat belt and put his bag in the overhead compartment as the plane was getting ready to depart.
“Delta flight 1532 from Atlanta to Des Moines returned to the gate, prior to departure, to deplane several customers seated in the First Class cabin who repeatedly refused to follow crew member instructions to buckle their seatbelts and stow carry-on items in the overhead bins,” Delta said in its statement.
Their manager tells TMZ, the trio were in first class, exhausted, and they all fell asleep. The manager says Takeoff's book bag was on the floor and not in the overhead, as required.
This video captures the altercation after they were escorted off the plane. In the video one of the men speaking threatens to sue Delta for kicking them off the plane and claims that it was racial profiling.
Shortly after the incident Delta issued them another flight. According to the official Instagram account of Migos, the airline issued them their own plane.
