Rapper Goes OFF on American Airlines

Rapper Goes OFF on American Airlines

Summer is near but things are already heating up for American Airlines with its passengers…and other airlines.

After rapper Boosie Badazz (né Torrence Hatch Jr.)  went on a social media tirade claiming that its gate agents intentionally denied his boarding and he consequently missed a pool party, American Airlines investigated.

“The captain told you that we could be let on but you did not want us on because of your jealousy towards me,” he wrote in the homophobic and ill-wishing Instagram post. “I MISS MY F—– POOL PARTY…”

He continued, “DO NOT RIDE AMERICAN AIRLINES Because u will not get to your destination on time n the people that work for this wack a– airline company have horrible attitudes [sic].”

Ross Feinstein, the spokesperson for American Airlines, told USA TODAY that American Airlines investigated CCTV video as well as Boosie’s flight reservation.

“Mr. Hatch’s inbound flight from Jackson, Miss., to Charlotte, N.C., this past Saturday was delayed, and he arrived at the gate for his connecting flight to Grand Rapids, Mich., after the airplane door had been closed,” Feinstein said.

Feinstein added, “We immediate[sic] rebooked Mr. Hatch and his family for a later flight, which is our standard procedure for missed connections.”

Loyal Boosie friends and fans stuck by his side but other commenters on the post were appalled at the racially charged and homophobic rant. One commenter responded with a shrug emoji, “And this is why you didn’t get on the plane.” The host of the popular YouTube cooking show Epic Meal Time, Harley (@harleyplays) wrote: “Maybe take a moment and breathe before posting in anger. That way you don’t use homosexual slurs and wish death upon hundreds of people all over a pool party. Summer just started big guy. There’s gonna be plenty of pool parties. Turn that frown around bud!”

    Why is someone of such obvious prominence flying commercial?

    I wonder if the first class passengers on the flight Hatch missed know they dodged having this vile meatbag on their flight. I imagine he runs the FAs ragged with demands and has zero consideration for other passengers.

    It disgusts me that this piece of garbage is raising children.

    I hope AA bans this man for life. The things he mentioned in his ignorant childish tirade should not be taken lightly.

    Lil Boosie had some hits in the 2000s. He’s from Louisiana and beat a murder charge.

    Who says he even flies first class? Is he that well known?

    After a quick look up to see who this guy was, I think ALL airlines should ban him.
