Delta Airlines Bans Unruly Donald Trump Supporter For Life

“This individual displayed behavior that was loud, rude and disrespectful to his fellow customers,” the airline's chief executive said. 

After many critiques of Delta Airlines handling of a disruptive supporter of President-elect Donald Trump, the company has decided to ban the passenger for life.

The New York Times reports a memo was sent out employees on Monday (Nov. 28) about the Nov. 25 incident where the unidentified man spewed insults to Hillary Clinton supporters by calling them "Hillary b****hes." He also said, “Donald Trump! It’s your president. Every goddamn one of you. If you don’t like it, too bad.” Chief executive Edward H. Bastian announced customers on the Allentown bound flight will receive full refunds and the Trump-supporter is now banned from flying the Atlanta-based airline.

“This individual displayed behavior that was loud, rude and disrespectful to his fellow customers,” Bastian said. He added, “We must require civility on our planes and in our facilities.”

The incident began when the passenger discussed the election with fellow passenger Emma Baum, who was out of the country during the election. Baum recorded the man's rant and uploaded it to Facebook where millions saw it. It was also picked up on Twitter on Friday (Nov. 25).

Baum told reporters the passenger was taken away briefly but remained on the flight. Bastian replied to the allegation in the memo, claiming the employees were not aware of the full outburst. "If our colleagues had witnessed firsthand what was shown in the video, there is no question they would have removed him from the aircraft," Bastian added. "He will never again be allowed on a Delta plane."

Cardi B Defends "Twerk" Video Against Conservative

Cardi B teamed up with the City Girls for their sexy "Twerk" video, in which the Miami and Bronx women twerked along the beautiful beaches with other buxom black and brown babes.

Some loved the videos, others not so much. One naysayer conservative Washington, D.C. video columnist took to Twitter to challenge Cardi b and other liberal women on how the provocative video will help during the #MeToo movement.

In the Era of #meToo how exactly does this empower women? Leftists, @iamcardib , feel free to chime in. THX .. pic.twitter.com/59fyDxrYAz

Cardi B saw the tweet and responded to Hamill directly telling the former Trump national diversity coalition advisor that what a woman wears has no bearing on how much respect she should be given.

"It says to women that I can wear and not wear whatever I want. do whatever I want and that NO still means," the "I Like It" rapper tweeted. "So Stephanie chime in..If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks."

Cardi B has been making ground in the political arena after commenting on the U.S. partial shutdown. However, since then the "Bodak Yellow" artist admits she's received negativity ever since. She insists she's not trying to change anyone's political preferrance.

All these conservatives been harassing me and telling me the most disgusting things these past few days.Listen I’m not telling ya to turn liberal all I’m saying is to admit that your president is fuckin up this country right now! Liberal or conservative we ALL suffer as citizens.

Woman Denies Chris Brown's Involvement In Reported Rape

A woman has come forward to clear Chris Brown's name after he was reportedly detained in Paris on a rape accusation.

On Monday (Jan. 21) a woman by name of Kim Ford shared several messages on her Instagram story, denying claims that Brown and his security guard abused an unidentified woman. Ford says "nothing happened" but she was hit by a man who wasn't the "Undecided" singer. Ford also denies being the one who accused the artist of sexual assault.

"I am not the person who said Chris Brown raped them," she said. "I was there but nothing happened and the man who hit me had no relation to Chris Brown."

Earlier reports claimed an unidentified woman alleges that she met Brown at a Parisian night club in rue de Ponthieu, near the Champs-Elysées, on the night of Jan. 15 into Jan. 16, before heading back to his room at the La Mandarin Oriental.

Brown was recently spotted taking in the festivities of Paris Fashion Week, and smooching rumored flame, Ammika Harris. The “Undecided” singer shared video from dance rehearsal in the French city over the weekend.

VIBE has reached to Ford about her comments.

He has not commented on the reported rape allegation.

See Ford's claims below.

Not Sicko Mode: Nick Cannon Says Travis Scott Isn't For The Culture

Nick Cannon takes great issue with Travis Scott performing at the Super Bowl but says for Big Boi, it's okay.

During a sitdown with TMZ's Raquel Harper, the host of Masked Singer said "I'm Kaepernick all day," but said Scott doesn't have enough "cultural equity" to perform during Super Bowl LIII halftime show.

"To me, I call it cultural equity. So we're not mad at Big Boi for performing at the Super Bowl. He's for the people," 38-year-old Cannon explained. "[For Scott] he has to walk gingerly."

Harper followed up and questioned Cannon, to which he further explained having a child with Kylie Jenner also reduced his "cultural equity."

"It's more about truly having integrity in your music and in your art form. The people you choose to interact with. The people you choose to procreate with. That decision wasn't for the culture. But we not mad at you," Cannon said.

Harper reminded Cannon he's dated a few white women in his past, to which Cannon then looked into the camera and shouted: "I love white women."

The New England Patriots will face off against the Los Angeles Rams, Sunday, Feb. 3 for Super Bowl LIII. Maroon 5 along with Travis Scott and Big Boi are set to take the stage at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Out of respect for Colin Kaepernick, several artists declined to perform including Rihanna, Cardi B and JAY-Z who reportedly tried to talk Scott out of it.

After Scott agreed to perform, reports revealed he spoke with Kaepernick about the decision. Kaepernick's longtime girlfriend Nessa Diab took to social media to blast Scott and say it was a lie.
