Quavo, Offset and Takeoff of Migos perform at 2017 BET Awards.

Migos was forced to delay their concert in Iowa on Friday night, as the group was kicked off of a Delta Airlines flight.

TMZ reports that Quavo, Offset, Takeoff and their manager were all traveling in first class, where they were napping. He states that Takeoff’s book bag was on the floor next to his leg, and not in the overheard compartment, as is required by Delta guidelines. Due to the fact that he was napping, Takeoff didn’t heed the request of a flight attendant who asked him to put the bag away.

Their manager then claims that the the plane was taken to the runway, where the pilot decided to abort takeoff and, in a case of supreme irony, booted Takeoff (born Kirshnik Khari Ball) from the plane. In the video below, the manager can be heard yelling at the Delta attendant onscreen, saying “We’re on our way to a show right now! We have been so calm right now,” and assuring the attendant that Migos “didn’t do anything.” The “Bad and Boujee” rappers can be seen looking tired and confused at the 0:15 mark.

Quavo (born Quavious Marshall) can be seen asking the attendant “So they saying there was a conflict on the plane?” The manager, who is recording the video on his phone, continues to defend the group, asking to see the captain of the plane and then telling the attendant “You kicked us off a plane for doing absolutely nothing!”

In the midst of the unboarding process, the manager can he heard yelling “By the way, this is gonna cost us a [expletive] thousand dollars and we’re gonna sue Delta for this f**king flight!”

After the news broke, a Delta spokesperson told TMZ that “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.” Migos were subsequently booked on another flight after the confusion.

Fans quickly to social media to give their opinion on the situation, whether siding with Migos or Delta Airlines, or simply wondering why the Migos aren’t flying on their own private jet. Check out some of the most notable reactions below.

This isn’t the first time Migos have stirred up controversy. In June, the group made headlines after the 2017 BET Awards, when they nearly got into a fight with R&B singer Chris Brown and rapper Joe Budden. The latter was caught on video walking out in the middle of an interview with Migos, and the group responded by standing up and approaching Budden with the intention of fighting.

Later in the evening, video footage surfaced of Migos allegedly getting into a fight in a parking lot. Brown was allegedly involved, due to the fact that his ex Karrueche Tran has been romantically linked to Quavo, but there has been no confirmation as to whether he was actually in on the fight.

Migos’ manager claims at significant variance with other witnesses. And Migos is a an extremely belligerent bunch of guys. Just google “migos fighting”.

So if a white guy was sitting there with their heavy bag in the middle of the plane’s main is asked to move their bag over and over.

If you are too tired or stoned to comply with basic safety everyone who has done any flying knows you must, then get off the plane. That bag is not just impeding your safety — but that of everyone on the plane.
