Young Thug Offers Airport Workers $15,000 to Quit Their Jobs
Update (Dec. 8, 11:58 a.m.):
Young Thug has deleted the original video from his Instagram, though you can still watch it above, after receiving criticism for his treatment of the airport workers. He also responded to people bashing him for calling the employees "nappy" and saying they look like "Africans."
Rappers have been experiencing a lot of trouble with airlines this year. Back in May, Wale could not make a scheduled performance due to a missed flight. In August, Vic Mensa got kicked off a flight. Today (Dec. 7), Young Thug went through his own headache at the airport.
Young Thug posted an Instagram video after getting fed up with some airline workers. The Atlanta rapper is seen arguing with the employees before offering them money to quit their jobs.
"I'll give y'all bum ass hoes $15,000 to quit your job," Young Thug said before pulling out some cash. "I'm giving y'all bums one more chance."
In the caption of the post, Young Thug claimed the airline workers were gonna make him miss his show. It's not exactly clear what the holdup was, but Thugger was still in possession of his bags.
"THIS IS Y I RIDE SIGNATURE JETS," he wrote. "THEY TRYIN TO MAKE ME MISS MY SHOW!!!"
