Migos was booted from a Delta flight on Friday (July 7).. and they are claiming it was a case of racial profiling.
The trio had boarded a flight scheduled to take off from from Atlanta to Des Moines. However, there was some sort of issue and they were booted.
Migos’ manager tells TMZ that all three members fell asleep in first class. Apparently, Takeoff was told to put his backpack in the overhead compartment, but he didn’t hear the instructions because he was asleep. Despite the aircraft being already on the runway, the pilot decided to boot Takeoff because the bag was still on the floor.
In the video below (published by TMZ), Migos is seen arguing with Delta employees on the jetway… and their manager is heard saying the incident was clearly racial profiling.
A Delta spokesman claims Migos refused repeated instructions from the flight crew to buckle their seatbelts and stow away their carry-on, so after they failed to comply, the pilot made the decision to return to the gate.
Delta ultimately rebooked Migos on an alternate flight, so they could make a scheduled show at 10 PM in Des Moines.
Migos confirmed this shortly after, posting a video on Instagram saying that Delta gave them an entire plane to themselves.
