Trippie Redd has denied reports that he was kicked off an airplane for smoking weed in the bathroom, blaming the situation on a friend instead.
On Tuesday (July 4), after landing at his destination, Trippie took to his Instagram Story to set the record straight where he vehemently denied being booted from the American Airlines plane for smoking weed, although he admitted to blowing trees prior to the flight.
“I see media outlets keep reaching,” he began. “I never got kicked off a plane for trying to smoke weed. I had smoked weed before I got on the flight and my homie, he smelled like weed in the back of the plane.
“I heard the flight attendant say something, so I walked to the back to see what was up. Then they got to yelling at me. I left, I went and got a private jet. Honestly, I feel like the flight attendants got some sort of attitude or some type of animosity like they hate their job or something.”
Trippie Redd continued: “I’m fine flying first class but when I feel disrespected or not welcomed, I will fly private because I feel like I got to get to my bag if I’m going to pick up $350,000, $20,000 ain’t shit. Put some respect on it.”

Footage emerged of Trippie and his entourage being escorted off a plane on Monday (July 3) and speculation began to run rampant on Twitter and various blogs/platforms that it was a weed-related ejection.
Hopefully, Trippie Redd has his traveling arrangements squared away by the time he hits the road at the end of August for the Take Me Away Tour with supporting acts Lucki, D Savage and more.
The trek will run through Cleveland, Brooklyn, Detroit, Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, San Diego and wrap up in Seattle on October 9.
The 1400 Entertainment boss is working toward the arrival of his anticipated A Love Letter To You 5 project, which is rumored to arrive later this summer.
On the music side, he kept busy in June teaming up with the incarcerated Tory Lanez for “Hurts Me” and connected with his girlfriend for “Took My Breath Away.”
