An Atlanta Delta plane refused to take off, all because of Take Off. Just this past Friday Migos,- (Quavo, Offset, Take Off) an American hip hop trio from Lawrenceville, Georgia, reportedly had a little incident with crew members from Delta Airlines in Atlanta, GA.
The trio were removed just hours before a show. Scheduled to leave Atlanta, GA and land in Des Moines, Iowa, the celebrities were all aboard and ready to take flight.
Apparently the crew members aboard the plan and the pilot, disagreed and here’s the reason why.
A Delta spokesman tells TMZ … the flight returned to the gate because Migos repeatedly refused to follow crew member instructions to buckle seatbelts and stow carry-on in overhead bins. Delta says it rebooked Migos on an alternate flight and that’s scheduled to land shortly after 9 PM Central time.
The only problem is, Migos had to appear on stage at 10:00 PM CT.
According to the group’s manager, the traveling stars were all exhausted and had fallen asleep in their seats, unable to hear any orders that were given by the flight crew.
This resulted in the crew members and pilot agreeing unanimously that Take Off needed to be removed from the flight for not following flight orders. Of course, what’s a rising Trio with out its other two members? and what’s a rising trio without their supportive manager?
Needless to say, all three artists, along with their upset manager all exited the plane.
TMZ reports Migos’ manager says the members were actually removed because of racial profiling.
In the above video, it is clear that the manager is upset. Threatening to sue the airline for justice towards the group, who were doing “absolutely nothing” when Take Off was asked to leave the plane.
While there are many questions circulating this story about whether or not the group really did nothing or if they intentionally ignored the crews orders, I guess the better question would be… if the manager says that the trio were all sleeping.. why didn’t he wake them to inform them about the seatbelt and bag placement orders from the flight crew?
or was the manager sleep too?
