Black Eyed Peas member Will.i.am claims racial discrimination against flight attendants on Quantas airlines, he was on a flight from Brisbane to Sydney when flight attendants asked passengers to store their electronic equipment. Will.i.am says he was using his laptop but didn’t hear the announcement because he was wearing noise-canceling headphones. When the plane landed in Sydney Will.i.am was escorted off the plane by 5 officers.

He tweeted, “I’m currently on a flight from Brisbane to Sydney.” “I’m sorry to say me and my group have experienced they worse service due to an overly aggressive flight attendant… I don’t want to believe she racist. But she has clearly aimed all her frustrations only at the people of colour.”
