It seems every major airline is battling with a celebrity. You had the recent debacle with Delta Airlines and Tamar Braxton now the focus is on Big Bank rapper YG and American Airlines.
In a recent Tweet, YG calls the airline giant racist after being kicked off a flight. According to the video the reason for his dismissal had to do with him being drunk. YG maintains he was "sober than a MF".
The flight should have taken YG from Los Angles to New York where he is scheduled to perform tonight (August 14) on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” American Airlines responded by inviting the rapper to discuss the ordeal in their DMs.
