Dizzee Rascal Airline Ban
British rap superstar Dizzee Rascal had to be physically removed from a plane at London’s Heathrow airport this past weekend. The rapper got into a verbal altercation with a stewardess, according to the Daily Mail. The incident could result in Dizzee receiving a life ban from British Airways.
Dizzee headed to Portugal to the Optimus Alive! festival, but liftoff was delayed over an hour. The rapper apparently got irate about the delays.
“The singer was verbally abusive to staff,” said an airport source. “This will not be tolerated. He was taken off the aircraft and was not allowed to continue his route on any other British Airways plane.”
“There will be an internal investigation and a decision will be taken as to whether he will ever be allowed to fly with British Airways again,” the source added.
Dizzee’s camp blames the incident on a member of the crew’s “unprofessional behavior,” which they claim “led to a confrontation whereby mutual parties agreed Dizzee leave the plane.”
