In addition, the airline company issued a statement about the incident to Jezebel. Read that below:

Ms. Parrish was traveling with a group of passengers, several of whom ignored repeated crew requests to stow their bags and comply with other FAA safety regulations after the plane left the gate. After one of the passengers threatened a flight attendant, the aircraft returned to the gate. The group chose to fly on the next United flight after agreeing to comply with FAA regulations. Claims that the passengers were removed for any reason other than not following instructions are entirely inaccurate.”


United Airlines has been called out for its racist treatment of passengers once again, this time by Kehlani. The Gen F alum railed against a flight attendant who she said dropped the n-word, in a series of tweets before deactivating her Twitter account. "Fuck United Airlines you're racist, you condone disrespectful flight attendants and racial slurs," she tweeted, "They just kicked me and my dancers off for asking to be talked to like a human being... then lied and said I tried to trip a flight attendant.." You can see the since-deleted tweets at Complex.

United has yet to respond, but Kehlani issued a statement about her decision to delete her tweets in a post on Instagram. "Due to constantly being misunderstood..Having my words constantly used against me... And for the sake of my mental health... I deactivated my Twitter account. From now on I'll just let my music speak." Read the full post below.

This has nothing to do with haters, I just know what's best for my soul. Thanks for understanding :)
