On Friday,  Migos hopped on a Delta Airlines flight from Atlanta to make their late show in Des Moines, Iowa. However, things took a turn for the worst when the group was kicked off the flight in an incident they describe as racial profiling.

According to TMZ, the group boarded the plane and took their seats in first class, just before falling asleep after an exhausting day of work. As the flight crew prepared for take-off, a flight attendant noticed a bag, which reportedly belonged to Takeoff, was still on the floor instead of stowed away in the overhead compartment. The flight attendant then asked the rapper to put the bag away, but he didn’t comply. However, according to the group’s manager, it was because the rapper was asleep.

The manager told TMZ that Takeoff’s bag remained on the floor as the plane taxied but instead of taking off, the pilot decided to return to the gate to give the rapper the boot.  In turn, the Migos and their manager accused the flight crew of racial profiling and threatened to sue.

A spokesperson for the airline says they returned to the gate because the Migos would not follow directions. Apparently, the group refused to fasten their seatbelts and put away their carry-ons, which prompted their removal. However, the airline did rebook the group on a different flight.
