Rapper YG kicked off flight for being drunk, American Airlines says

Rapper YG claims he was kicked off his American Airlines flight on Monday because of racism, but the airline says otherwise.

“F–k American Airlines! They said I’m drunk,” he shouted in a video posted to Twitter. “I’m sober than a muthaf–ka!”

He also captioned it, “F–k @AmericanAir THEY RACIST.”

But a rep for American Airlines tells Page Six, “The video speaks for itself – he was removed due to being intoxicated.”

The “Big Bank” rapper, 28, had been flying from LAX to JFK Airport on Monday. YG, whose real name is Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, was removed at 8:37 p.m. PT and was “asked to deplane due to being intoxicated a short time later,” the American Airlines rep said. The flight then departed as scheduled at 9 p.m. PT.

American Airlines also responded to YG’s Twitter video, tweeting, “In our culture, every interaction with a customer or team member should be grounded in respect. Please meet us in DMs with more info.”
