Lil Pump is no longer allowed to fly on JetBlue Airways after the rapper allegedly refused to abide by the airline's COVID-19 safety protocols and wouldn't wear a face mask during a recent flight.
The 20-year-old hip-hop star, whose real name is Gazzy Garcia, boarded a JetBlue flight on Sunday when he got into an argument with crew members.
A JetBlue representative confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday that Garcia "became verbally abusive" after he was asked "multiple times" to wear a face covering and refused.
The rapper was en route to Los Angeles, Calif., from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., USA Today first reported.
His return reservation "was canceled and he is no longer welcome to fly on JetBlue," JetBlue rep Derek Dombrowski said.
The airline asks that face coverings are worn inside airport terminals and for the duration of "every JetBlue flight.".
