YG Kicked Off Plane for Being Drunk, Calls American Airlines 'Racist'
YG was kicked off a plane for allegedly being drunk.
The “Big Bank” rapper boarded an American Airlines flight from LAX to JFK on Monday night (Aug. 13), but was removed from the plane for reportedly being intoxicated.
He documented the incident in a video on social media. “F**k American Airlines! They kicked me off the plane,” said YG before declaring his sobriety. “They said I’m drunk. I’m sober than a muthaf***a!”

American Airlines tells TMZ that YG was kicked off “due to being intoxicated.” After seeing his video, the airline tried to reach out via Twitter. “In our culture, every interaction with a customer or team member should be grounded in respect,” they tweeted. “Please meet us in DMs with more info.”
But YG clearly thinks it had more to do with race than his alcohol consumption. “Racist ass muthaf***as. I’m sober! Run it up,” he said.
