Black Eyed Peas rapper will.i.am took to social media to air out a "racist flight attendant" who called the cops on him for not putting away his laptop on a recent flight to Sydney.
According to the artist, he says that when he landed at the Sydney airport, he was greeted by police officers. He says the incident occurred because he could not hear the flight attendant's instructions through his headphones.
"I'm currently on a flight from Brisbane to Sydney. I'm sorry to say me and my group have experienced they worse service due to a overly aggressive flight attendant," he tweeted. "I don't want to believe she racist. But she has clearly aimed all her frustrations only at the people of colour."
He continued: "This is how your greeted when you land from Brisbane to Sydney flying @qantas with a #RacistFlightattendant named Lorraine Marshall," he continued, sharing a photograph of a police officer. "She sent the police after me bacause I couldn't hear the P.A while making beats on the plane wearing noise canceling headphones."
In response to his tweets, Qantas Airlines released the following statement:
"There was a misunderstanding on board, which seems to have been exacerbated by will.i.am wearing noise cancelling headphones and not being able to hear instructions from crew. We'll be following up with will.i.am and wish him well for the rest of the tour," they said via THR.
