Rap trio Migos was removed from a Delta flight on Friday, just hours before a concert, and their manager is reportedly accusing the airline of racial profiling.
They were on a flight from Atlanta to Des Moines, but the plane returned to the gate before it departed to drop off the trio. Delta said that the group was removed for a failure to follow crew member instructions and properly stow away their items in the overhead bins. Their manager however claims that Takeoff failed to follow instructions and place his bag in the bin because he was asleep.
“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.
Delta added that Migos was rebooked for an alternate flight to Des Moines, which was scheduled to arrive shortly after 9 pm, which was technically on time for their concert at 10 pm.
Their manager is claiming racial profiling and you can check out the video below. Warning: Some NSFW language.
