Migos Was Kicked Off a Plane & Their Manager Claims Racial Profiling

The rappers were traveling in first class and reportedly a bag belonging to Takeoff was on the floor and had not been placed in overhead storage as is required by the airline [VIDEO]. In the clip, the group's manager says he's taking the issue "all the way to the top" and threatens to sue Delta. Their manager, however, told TMZ that Takeoff failed to follow instructions and place his bag in the bin because he was asleep.

Migos lit up their Instagram page with a shout-out to Delta for blessing them with an entire ride.

Migos was removed from the plane on Friday when the group was trying to fly from Atlanta to Des Moines, Iowa, for a show.

After Takeoff was put off, Offset, Quavo and their manager also got off the plane, but their story was a little different.

However, Migos manager Danny Zook said the group was removed from the plane because of racial discrimination.

Migos made it to their scheduled performance later that night, reports the Des Moines Register, taking the Seven Flags stage just after 10:30 p.m.

Migos posted a video shortly after on their Instagram showing them onboard a new flight that they booked exclusively to themselves.

A rep for Migos confirmed the events of the TMZ report to Variety. The group's manager, meanwhile, has told TMZ that this was a clear case of racial profiling, and provided a video of a conversation between the group and Delta employees after they were kicked off the plane.
