Rapper Lil Pump is making quite a stir to end what many have classified as a horrendous year. The 20-year-old artist previously made headlines after he publicly endorsed Donald Trump in the recent presidential elections. Now, the “Gucci Gang” rapper is buzzing on the internet again. But this time, it’s because of what he didn’t do.
According to TMZ, a rep for JetBlue Airlines informed the news outlet that a customer (Lil Pump) was “unruly” during a Saturday flight from Fort Lauderdale to L.A.
The outlet reported that Pump was verbally abusive with crew members, took off his face mask mid-flight, and failed to put it back on, even when asked.
During the flight, the airlines asked LAX to have cops on standby when they touched down. However, the LAX Airport Police informed the news outlet that they have no record of an incident or an arrest involving Lil Pump.
The outlet was also able to obtain a correspondence in which the captain explained what the rapper was reportedly doing.
In the beginning, the captain stated that the rapper was not adhering to the company’s mask police. He later mentioned that Lil Pump was coughing and sneezing in a blanket, maybe on “purpose.”
The captain asked that more than a supervisor meet the plane at arrival to deal with the young artist “firmly.”
The last correspondence received by LAX said that the rapper eventually cooperated and put his mask back on.
Lil Pump later took to social media to cuss out the airlines in a now-deleted video.
“F**k JetBlue,” the rapper said.
He then went on to say that he would “NEVER” wear a mask in 2021.
