Lil Pump was banned from JetBlue airlines after he refused to wear his mask during a flight.

The 20-year-old rapper who is best known for his hit, “Gucci Gang,” did not comply with COVID-19 safety protocols during his flight on Sunday (Dec. 27). He reportedly “became verbally abusive with crew members after being asked multiple times and refusing to comply with JetBlue’s face covering policy” during his flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Los Angeles.

On Monday (Dec. 28), JetBlue representative Derek Dombrowski confirmed Pump’s ban to USA TODAY. “His return reservation was canceled and he is no longer welcome to fly on JetBlue,” Dombrowski said.

“Law enforcement was asked to meet the flight to assist our crewmembers in notifying the customer his return reservation was canceled and he is no longer welcome to fly on JetBlue,” he continued. “The safety of all customers and crewmembers is JetBlue’s first priority. Our policy requires all customers 2 years and older wear a face covering throughout their journey.”

Pump made headlines a few weeks ago when he endorsed Donald Trump for president after criticizing Joe Biden’s proposed tax plans. “All I got to say is Trump 2020, bitch,” he said in a video. “Fuck I look like paying an extra 33 in tax for Biden’s bitch ass?”

“Fuck Sleepy Joe, n*gga,” he added. Pump also shared an altered photo that showed him shaking hands with the president, writing, “The day I met Trump.”

Shortly after his endorsement, the Harverd Dropout emcee was invited to join the president at his campaign rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He hit the stage wearing a red and white MAGA hat after the president mistakenly called him “Little Pimp.”

Pump took the stage and thanked the president for what he’s done for the country. “Hello, everybody,” he said. “How you guys feeling? I come here to say, Mr. President, I appreciate everything you’ve done for our country. You brought the troops home and you’re doing the right thing. MAGA 20, 20, 20. Don’t forget that.”
