Over the weekend rapper, Lil Boosie went on a rant where he accused American Airlines of being racist for not allowing him to make his flight. Boosie did not stop at insulting them though, the rapper went on to say that he ‘hopes their plane crashes’ after the delay made him miss his pool party.
Now American Airlines has responded to Lil Boosie’s comments over the incident. American Airlines denied any accusations of unfair treatment while also clearing up the confusion of Boosie’s circumstances.
“Boosie’s inbound flight from Jackson, Miss., to Charlotte, NC., was delayed,” said a spokesperson for the airline, “and he arrived at the gate for his connecting flight to Grand Rapids, Mich., after the airplane door had been closed.”
The spokesperson also said, “while we understand misconnections are frustrating, Boosie was not denied boarding for any other reason other than he arrived after the door had already closed for departure.”
After the incident, it was reported that Boosie and his family boarded another American Airlines plane. Lil Boosie’s rant has subsequently gone under review and could possibly result in a lifetime ban in the future.
