Migos were kicked off of a Delta Airlines flight from Atlanta to Des Moines Friday (July 7) after Takeoff’s bookbag was left on the floor of the plane, instead of the baggage area above his seat. The captain made the decision to boot Takeoff, however the remaining Migos and management also got off in a show of solidarity.
Their manager tells TMZ, the 3 members were in first class, exhausted, and they all fell asleep. The manager says Takeoff’s book bag was on the floor and not in the overhead, as required. Takeoff didn’t obey the flight attendant and put the bag away, the manager says, because he was sleeping.
A Delta spokesman tells us TMZ the flight returned to the gate because Migos repeatedly refused to follow crew member instructions to buckle seatbelts and stow carry-on in overhead bins. Delta says it rebooked Migos on an alternate flight which shouldve landed after 9PM Central. They have a 10 PM show scheduled in Des Moines. No word if they made it.
In the video below of Migos shortly after they were kicked off the plane, you hear a manager of the trio say it’s a clear case of racial profiling.
