Young Thug‘s travel plans were briefly interrupted when he was removed from a private jet without an explanation. On Wednesday (Jan. 12), the Punk rapper took to Instagram Live to document his encounter with a “racist” pilot, who has since been identified as Alex. In the clip, he sought to understand why he and members of his entourage were asked to leave the plane.

“You said my friend couldn’t get on the plane because he didn’t have an ID. Did he disrespect you?” Thug asked, to which Alex responded with the reminder of a basic flying rule: “You cannot fly without an ID.”

“How did we disrespect one of your colleagues?” Thug asked once again. When the pilot failed to answer, he alleged that he was being kicked off the plane because of racial matters. “You can’t tell me nothing else that happened,” he said. “You’re racist as fuck. Your wife should leave you.”

The Atlanta rapper then insisted that he wasn’t leaving the PJ despite Alex’s warning that cops were on the way.

“They said we disrespected him, we hadn’t disrespected anybody,” Thugger said to the camera. “His name is Alex. He’s racist, he’s disrespectful. We didn’t do anything disrespectful. We are not getting off this plane.”

“We don’t care how many polices you called, you can call 62 million police, we don’t care, prick,” he told the pilot directly. “We didn’t disrespect anybody.”

Thugger continued, “Alex, you racist. You mad ’cause we got money. Yeah, you racist ’cause we didn’t do anything.”

Thug’s ID-less friend eventually left the plane, but it wasn’t enough for the pilot to take off. According to XXL, Alex told authorities that he was uncomfortable flying the plane with Thug and his artists. Thugger was instructed to book another private jet for which he would be compensated, but he claimed the broker said the $40,000 fee was non-refundable.

Young Thug‘s plane was supposed to take him to New York City where he had a scheduled show. It’s unclear if he was able to book another charter jet.
