Dizzee Rascal Thrown Off Flight for Delay Complaints
British rapper Dizzee Rascal let his temper get the best of him recently during a flight heading to Portugal from the U.K. The ‘Where’s Da G’s’ creator never made it to his destination after being thrown off the plane for creating a loud disturbance with his complaints over delays.
According to the London Evening Standard, Rascal was booked on British Airways Airbus 320 bound for Portugal, where he was set to perform at the Optimus Alive! festival. The rhymer reportedly became aggravated when he and fellow passengers were left sitting idle on the runway for more than an hour. As a result, Rascal was forced to cancel his scheduled appearance at the Optimus show.
Passengers claimed that the rapper was asleep on the flight during the delay, then woke up and questioned a female stewardess regarding the wait. “…He said to her something along the lines of, ‘What’s going on? What are we still doing here? What’s happening?’” said John Godsland, 39, a passenger. According to Godsland, the flight attendant then waved her finger at Rascal, causing him to become visibly upset.
Rascal then spoke to the plane’s captain but was asked to leave the premises, as a police van awaited his exit on the runway.
No arrests were made.
