Young Thug has revealed that he’s apologised to airport staff that he had previously called “ants” and “peasants” because his mother made him do so.
Last week, footage surfaced showing the Atlanta rapper arguing with Alaska Airlines staff, referring to them as “bum ass hoes” and offering them $15,000 ($11k) to quit their jobs. He was also criticised for saying that the workers looked like “Africans”, describing their hair as “nappy”. It is not clear what the original disagreement was over, but Young Thug claimed that he was going to miss a show due to the hold-up.
Young Thug has since taken to Instagram to post a photo of himself and to reveal in the caption that his mother made him apologise for his comments. “When your mama make u go to the airport and apologize,” he wrote, adding: “Sorry love ones.” See that post below.
In August, Young Thug released his latest mixtape ‘Jeffery’, with its title taken from the rapper’s birth name. ‘Jeffery’ featured guest appearances from Gucci Mane, Young Scooter, Travis Scott, Wyclef Jean and Quavo. It also included songs titled ‘Kanye West’, ‘Wyclef Jean’, ‘Floyd Mayweather’, ‘RiRi’ and ‘Harambe’.
‘Jeffery’ is the latest in a series of commercial mixtapes from Young Thug, following on from ‘Barter 6’ (2015), ‘I’m Up’ (2016) and ‘Slime Season 3’ (also 2016).
