Young Thug Berates Two Black Women Airline Workers, Calls Them "Bums" And "Ants"
Young Thug caused a bit of a brouhaha on social media Wednesday (Dec. 7) when he uploaded video of himself arguing with two airline workers he claimed were prohibiting him from boarding his flight. In the clip, the Jeffrey artist pulls out a Bentley bag filled with $15,000 and presents it to both women as a bribe in hopes they'll quit their job and let him on the flight.
“I’ll give y’all bum ass hoes $15,000 to quit your job,” Thug said before pulling out wads of cash. “I’m giving y’all bums one more chance.” As both women turned their backs to the camera, Thug was seen calling both women "ants" and said their hair was "nappy as a mothaf***er" and that they looked like "Africans."
Thug's financial bribe didn't prove lucrative and he missed his flight and subsequently his show, but promised Seattle fans a re-up along with an an extra hour performance when he finally arrives.

To then add more fuel to the fire, the 25-year-old Atlanta rapper took to Twitter to clarify the comments made in a video, but seemed to only make matters worse.
BTW that message wasn't to all my black women...... it was to those two black burnt women
