Los Angeles, CA – Rich The Kid is calling foul on a recent interaction with American Airlines. On a flight headed for Los Angeles earlier this week, Rich and his manager were taxiing to the gate when the ATLien rapper decided he had to use the bathroom.
Despite the flight attendants’ instructions to stay in his seat, Rich allegedly began arguing with the staff before his tour manager jumped in. The manager reportedly threatened a flight attendant, saying, “I will cut your head off.”
Police were waiting for the duo when they got off the plane.
While Rich was not arrested, his manager was booked for misdemeanor criminal threats. In a video, the Interscope Records’ signee claimed it was due to racial profiling.
“When you get racially profiled on the plane because I’m black,” Rich says in the video obtained by TMZ. “I wanted to use the restroom … do not ride American Airlines. This is Rich the Kid speaking and I’m letting you know, American Airlines will racially profile you. Racially profile. I have 2.1 million followers and they will all see this. I’m just letting you know. They racially profiling me.”
The officer eventually cuts him off.
American Airlines reportedly denies any racial profiling went down.
