Welp… another day, another ‘reality’ show star acts up in public!
This time it’s Benzino from Love & Hip Hop Atlanta who got a bit perturbed and cursed out everybody around him after he was booted from a flight yesterday (May 27, 2014).
I received the following anonymous tip about the incident last night:
Benzino just got kicked off flight from Chicago headed to Atlanta. He was claiming the Flight Attendants were racists. FYI, my friend is a Flight Attendant and is currently commuting back home while the incident took place.
Her words via text was Benzino was acting like an asshole. She is in flight now. I will get the details shortly when the plane lands.
More details + video of Benzino’s rant below…
VIDEO: Benzino Airline Rant
Benzino’s profanity-laced outburst came shortly after he claimed a flight attendant racially profiled him on his flight.
Benzino and his fiance’ Thi-Thi were reportedly the last people to board the flight and as soon as they took their First Class seats, a flight attendant demanded to see their tickets.
Benzino found this insulting, and felt that the flight attendant only asked to see his tickets because he’s a man of color sitting in First Class.
“They basically were talking to me very disrespectful and came at me inappropriate. That?s why I was upset about the situation. I am not the one to scream the race card unless I truly believe I am being treated not equal.”
He also hit the net to plead his case, stating:
Benzino, says an airline rep later apologized to him, telling him the airline was in the wrong, and then gave him and Althea two Southwest Airline vouchers for $200.
Oh… and BTW. Benzino and Althea Heart’s ‘wedding photo’ was taken during a video shoot for Althea’s new song ‘Ghetto Love'(LISTEN HERE)… the couple got ‘married’ in the video, which was filmed in Vegas over the weekend.
What do you think of Benzino’s claims of ‘racial’ profiling?
Believe it? Or nah?
