Lil Pump has been banned from flying with a US airline after refusing to wear a face mask during a flight, it’s claimed.
The rapper, 20, was on a JetBlue flight from Fort Lauderdale to Los Angeles on Saturday when he reportedly “became verbally abusive” to members of the cabin crew and took off his face mask before refusing to put it back on when asked.
JetBlue allegedly called in to LAX Airport to tell them to have police on standby but Lil Pump was not arrested when the flight landed, according to TMZ.
The site claims that Lil Pump refused to comply with JetBlue’s mask policy, and later said he was sneezing and coughing into a blanket without his mask.
He’s later said to have complied and wore his mask, but when the flight landed he criticised the airline on social media.
In a now deleted Instagram video, Lil Pump said: “Fk JetBlue. Fk everyone that’s working there!”
Lil Pump, who is also known as Gazzy Garcia, added: “All 2020, 2021, I ain’t wearing no mask.
“I ain’t gotta wear no f**king mask, bitch, corona’s fake.”
