Rich The Kid’s Manager Arrested For Threatening To Behead Flight Attendants (Video)
Rich The Kid says he was a victim of racial profiling.
American Airlines has lost yet another customer. On Tuesday, Rich The Kid’s manager, Anthony Graham, 28, was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport after he allegedly threatened flight attendants.
According to TMZ, the “New Freezer” rapper attempted to go to the bathroom before his flight reached the gate. A flight attendant asked him to return to his seat until the plane came to a stop, but he refused to do so. At that point, Graham stepped in and told the attendants, “I will cut your head off.”
Airport police were notified of the disturbance, and met both Rich and Graham as they exited the plane. Rich was detained, while Graham was arrested and booked at Los Angeles Police Department’s Pacific Division jail for misdemeanor criminal threats.
Following the incident, Rich The Kid posted a video on social media stating, “We get racially profiled on the plane ’cause I’m Black. Do not ride American Airlines. This is Rich The Kid speaking, and I’m letting you know that American Airlines will racially profile you.” The video has since been deleted.
A spokesperson for American Airlines denied any racial profiling and noted this wasn’t Rich’s “first time of an issue with an airline.”
