No take-off for Migos star Takeoff after plane drama

No take-off for Migos star Takeoff after plane drama

Migos' manager, who has reportedly accused the airline of racial profiling, told TMZ that the group was in first class sleeping-which is why Takeoff didn't follow staff instructions to put away his overhead luggage.

A spokesman for the company said Migos "repeatedly refused to follow crew member instructions to buckle their seatbelts and stow carry-on in overhead bins", which resulted in Takeoff being booted from the airliner.

In a video posted on TMZ, you can see the members of Migos looking confused as they leave the plane.

Whole the plane was taxiing up to the runway, Takeoff's bag was still on the floor and that's when the pilot stopped the plane and ordered the rapper to be remove from the aircraft.

The incident occurred prior to the plane's departure on Friday afternoon (July 7) in Atlanta, GA. Delta says it rebooked the group on an alternate flight to their destination.

A video of the incident obtained by TMZ shows a flight attendant and the rappers discussing the situation, with threats of a lawsuit leveled at Delta. In a show of solidarity, Quavo, Offset and their manager also left the plane.

However, Migos manager Danny Zook said the group was removed from the plane because of racial discrimination.

Apparently they were booked onto another flight and are now set to arrive in Des Moines, Iowa, where they're set to perform at 10 o'clock tonight and land at 9 o'clock.

Migos has a show in Des Moines now scheduled for 10 p.m. Watch a video of the incident below.
