Migos Booted From Delta Flight, Claim Racial Profiling

To show allegiance to Takeoff, Quavo and Offset also chose to exit the flight.

Like our fearless leader Danielle Belton, it seems as if a Delta flight attendant did not recognize the bubblin' rap trio and therefore didn't know that this would be bad bad bad (and so not boujee) for Delta's publicity.

Per Migos' Instagram, Delta ended up giving the group a "whole plane" to take to Des Moines.

Migos nearly missed their Iowa concert on Friday, as the rap trio was removed from a Delta flight thanks to an issue with Takeoff. That's what a video posted on TMZ claims, though the airline says otherwise. The manager explained to TMZ that the group was exhausted and sleeping on the flight when a flight attendant noticed Offset's carry on bag was on the floor and not the overhead compartment as required.

The plane taxied to the runway, but the pilot aborted takeoff and returned to the gate, where Takeoff was told to leave the plane.

Delta said in a statement to Variety that the group was removed for a failure to follow crew member instructions and properly stow away their items in the overhead bins.

Migos' manager claims the three rappers were racially profiled when they were thrown off a Delta flight on Friday.

TMZ reports Migos' manager says the members were actually removed because of racial profiling. Delta later rebooked them for a later flight, and they eventually made it to their concert on time.

Their concert in Iowa was set for 10 p.m., while their flight was scheduled to land shortly after 9 p.m.
