Yikes! Tension reached a boiling point when Takeoff was booted from a Delta flight on July 7, before heading to Iowa for a show with the Migos. The rap trio’s manager threatened to sue Delta and reportedly claimed it was a case of ‘racial profiling!’
Emotions were running high when Quavo, 26, Takeoff, 21, and Offset, 23, from rap group Migos were kicked off a Delta plane on July 7. The heated altercation took place on a flight scheduled from Atlanta to Des Moines. A Delta rep explained how it was the “crew and pilot’s decision” to kick off Takeoff, but Quavo, Offset, and their manager also left to show support, according to TMZ. It started because Takeoff’s bag was on the floor and not in the overhead bin, as the flight attendant requested. However, Migos’ manager tells the site that all three rappers were sleeping in first class, so Takeoff didn’t realize his bag was on the floor when the plane taxied to the runway.
Because of that decision, the pilot supposedly decided to abort takeoff and remove Takeoff from the flight. The Migos’ manager was absolutely livid, since they could have missed their 10pm show in Iowa. “By the way, this is going to cost a f**king thousand dollars and we’re going to sue Delta,” he yelled. The manager reportedly claimed that it was a case of racial profiling.
Even after accusations were thrown, the Migos could possibly still make it to their show, since they were able to work something out! “The [original] flight returned to the gate because Migos repeatedly refused to follow crew member instructions to buckle seatbelts and stow carry-on in overhead bins,” a Delta spokesperson tells TMZ. “Delta says it rebooked Migos on an alternate flight, which is in the air, and scheduled to land shortly after 9 PM Central time.”
