44-year-old former Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am is slamming Australia’s national airline: QANTAS and in particular a “racist” flight attendant!
Will claims that the flight attendant asked him to put away his headphones so he could hear flight announcements, and that he complied “quickly and politely.” He says however, that the attendant named Lorraine Marshall proceeded to alert five police officers who arrived to “intimidate” him upon arrival at his destination in Brisbane.
Will tweeted to his 12.8 million followers: “Your #RacistFlightAttendant was beyond rude & took it to the next level by calling the police on me. thank god the other passengers testified that SHE was out of Control. She singled every person of colour [sic] the flight and gave them a hard time” Many of his fans were not happy, with one anonymous Twitter user writing in response to Qantas: “Racist B***h! You think because you’re white you’re better than everybody else? do you k[sic] know how much Will.I.Am is worth, you’ll never be worth that much in your life! Shame on you! At your age, you should do better.” Take a look below and let us know: IS QANTAS A RACIST AIRLINE? WHY WOULD THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT CALL POLICE OFFICERS ON WILL.I.AM? DIDN’T SHE KNOW HE WAS FAMOUS? IS AUSTRALIA CANCELLED NOW?
I was intimidated by 5 police officers when I landed…for what? 🤷🏿♂️ I put away my laptop when she asked…why would she feel threatened by me to call the police? What did I do wrong? I wasn’t out of hand.. I was polite & did what she asked… now you’re asking me to take abuse? https://t.co/1390ThymY3
