Joey Bada$$ said he was racially discriminated against on a recent American Airlines flight. According to the Brooklyn rapper, it happened after he tried to take his seat in first class and was stopped.
So I’m boarding this #AmericanAirlines flight walking to my first class seat. But before I get there I put my bag up (in the first class section obv) & one of the flight attendants goes “excuse me sir you can’t put your bag there that’s for our first class customers” AHAHAHA— BADMON (@joeyBADASS) January 29, 2018
So I show her my ticket and the whole plane just laughs at her. Stupid bitch. @AmericanAir is the best airline for racial discrimination. This is why I’m #teamdelta @Delta— BADMON (@joeyBADASS) January 29, 2018
Afterward, the airline tried to smooth things over with an apology, but Joey didn't accept it. He also said the the apology was totally insincere.
@joeyBADASS Our customers should feel welcomed while traveling with us, we're going to have someone meet you at the gate once you arrive.— American Airlines (@AmericanAir) January 29, 2018
Be honest you guys said this just for Twitter. Didn’t see anyone waiting to meet me when I arrived. And even if there was, trust I wasn’t interested. But thank you anyway... for nothing https://t.co/4tmTzyFjZA— BADMON (@joeyBADASS) January 29, 2018
How do you think Joey and the airline handled this situation?
