After recently announcing that he would not return to “The Voice” as a coach, will.i.am was ironically kicked out of an airlines’s first class airport lounge.
The former Black Eyed Peas star took to Twitter to share his rage with United Airlines which asked him to leave the first class airport lounge after a staff member thought his membership card was fake.
will.i.am did not happen to include which airport the incident occurred at, however, he was seen in Washington D.C. for friend and fellow musician Diddy’s commencement speech at Howard University.
Check out will.i.am’s Twitter rant below.
In response, United Airlines released a statement saying:
“We invite only customers traveling in United Global First, customers with Global Services status traveling in United BusinessFirst, and customers traveling in first class on other Star Alliance carriers to visit our Global First Lounges. Since the customer did not meet these criteria he did not have access to the lounge. We are reaching out to the customer and appreciate his business.”
We hope this situation is handled appropriately, will.i.am seemed a little p.o.’ed with the United Airlines staff.
