Migos Ejected From Delta Flight in Atlanta

When Takeoff's bag was still on the floor when the plane was on the runway, the pilot aborted takeoff, taxied back to the gate, and had the rapper thrown off, his manager told TMZ.

In the video below (published by TMZ), Migos is seen arguing with Delta employees on the jetway. and their manager is heard saying the incident was clearly racial profiling.

A video obtained by TMZ shows the group and their manager speaking with Delta representatives after leaving the plane.


According to Delta, the flight returned to the gate after the captain decided that the not putting his bag in the overhead department and buckling of his seatbelt, were enough to cancel the takeoff and return to the gate.

The three members of Migos boarded a Delta plane from Atlanta, Georgia to Des Moines, Iowa on Friday, but then it turned around to drop them off.

In a statement about the incident, Delta told PEOPLE the group was removed because customers "repeatedly refused to follow crew member instructions to buckle their seat belts and stow carry-on items in the overhead bins". He says when the plane taxied to the runway and the bag was still on the floor, the pilot chose to abort takeoff and boot Takeoff.


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

Migos has a show in Des Moines now scheduled for 10 p.m. Watch a video of the incident below. Delta later rebooked them for a later flight, and they eventually made it to their concert on time.
