Vic Mensa Booted From American Airlines Flight After Heated Exchange With Employee

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Vic Mensa was reportedly was kicked off a flight to Chicago, Illinois on Thursday (August 26) after a heated exchange with an airline employee.

The hip-hop star was stranded in California after arguing with an American Airlines employee at the gate.

Frustrated Vic took to social media to give his account in detail, explaining he got into trouble for initially reprimanding the staffer for disrespecting a female passenger.

“KICKED OFF THE FLIGHT ON @AmericanAir SMH (shaking my head),” Vic tweeted. “ALL FOR TELLING THE TICKET MAN TO WATCH HIS MOUTH SPEAKING TO A WOMAN IN LINE. I DONT TOLERATE THAT DISRESPECT S##T… F##K YOU @AmericanAir YOU’RE LOSING ALL MY BUSINESS I FLY AT LEAST 7 PEOPLE WITH YOU WEEKLY NOW”.

Vic elaborated in a lengthy video on Snapchat, saying, “He (employee) was disrespecting this woman so crazy, pointing all in her face like, ‘No, ma’am, you need to follow instructions. You need to go around the back and follow instructions.’ I don’t let that s##t slide in front of me. I don’t let people talk to women like that around me, so I told him, “You need to watch your attitude speaking to her because we’re the ones been waiting.'”

The rapper explained that he ignored the employee’s request to step to the side, and scanned his own ticket before walking on to the plane.

Staff members then called in security officers, who escorted Vic off the aircraft. A female employee refused to let him get back on the plane, and then offered him a refund.

Vic admitted that’s when he got angry, and “snatched the ticket out of her hand, stormed off, said, ‘F##k this airline,’ grabbed the metal banister (sic), threw it into the desk, and pimped off… I lowkey had a little breakdown.”

He later encouraged fans to send tweets to the official American Airlines account with the message, “F##k you from Vic Mensa”.

Thursday’s incident marked the second time he’s been kicked off a plane in three months – in June (16),

Vic said he was kicked off an United Airlines flight for talking to “a depressed fan who needed help on the phone” before take-off.
