YG, who just released the album Stay Dangerous, states at the end of the clip that he’s suing. American Airlines quickly responded to his tweet, saying, “In our culture, every interaction with a customer or team members should be grounded in respect,” before asking him to “meet us in DMs with more info.”

American Airlines reportedly told TMZ that YG was removed “due to being intoxicated,” but did not give details about the incident.
