Dave East is calling out Delta Airlines for racism after he was kicked off of his flight to Atlanta on Friday (Sep. 11).

The Paranoia: A True Story emcee posted a video of the incident on his Instagram account. “RACISM,” he captioned the post. “Fucc Delta! Racist Ain’t Even The Word! This Jamaican Man Defending me and He don’t even know me!!!! He watched the racist harassment!!!! Delta Airlines Y’all Need To Stop Hiring these racist, stupid, ignorant TRUMP supporters that get nervous when they see a PERSON OF COLOR in first class!!! Bitch just ask me what I want to drink and keep it pushing!!!! Shit got me Hot.”

In the three-minute video, you can see the man, who East referred to in his caption, speaking to one of the flight attendants. The The Harlem bred rapper says he was kicked off of the flight because people got nervous seeing a Black man in first class.

As he exited the plane, there were more than six police officers waiting for him. “Racism is crazy,” he said in the video. “With all this shit going on in the news — Black people getting shot every fucking day — y’all do this on an airplane?”

He then begins to get the badge numbers and names of the Port Authority officers on camera. When he gets to the Black officer, he says, “You the brotha. You just doing yo job though.”

East asked for the location of the woman who got him kicked off the flight. He asked, “Y’all gon let her fly? And we gotta get off the plane?” The woman was never shown on video. One of the men in East’s team went to thank the man who was defending them to the flight attendant.

The “Perfect” rapper was scheduled to make an appearance at Shark Bakery’s Pop Up in Atlanta on Friday night. There is no word whether or not he was able to catch another flight. Check out the video of the incident below.
