Will.i.am Possibly Facing Lawsuit Over Airline Racism Claims!
Has Will.i.am learned nothing from Jussie Smollett who is now suing the city of Chicago? Read on since Qantas Airlines is NOT playing with Will.i.am, who is claiming that a flight attendant racially targeted him during a trip from Brisbane to Sydney. Read on to find out why Will.i.am is facing a lawsuit…
CelebNMusic247.com reports earlier this week Will.i.am took to Twitter claiming that he was racially profiled by an airline Stewart.
The Black Eyed Peas frontman, 44, alleged on Saturday that an “overly aggressive” female flight attendant was “beyond rude” to him because he didn’t hear an announcement for passengers to put away their electronics.
Will.i.am aired his frustrations on social media saying:
I don’t want to believe she racist. But she has clearly aimed all her frustrations only at the people of color. This is how you’re greeted when you land from Brisbane to Sydney flying @qantas with a #RacistFlightattendant.
He followed that Tweet with another one after complying, the producer was met by five police officers upon landing.
I did comply quickly and politely, only to be greeted by the police. I think I was targeted.
Will.i.am named the flight attendant in question in his tweet and now faces a legal suit on behalf of Qantas airlines.
See, Qantas Airlines is not only denying rapper Will.i.am’s claim that a flight attendant racially targeted him during a trip from Brisbane to Sydney, but is prepared to back a lawsuit against the musician if he refuses to retract those allegations.
A spokesperson told CNN:
Absent a retraction, and if the crew member wanted to take the matter further, we’d certainly be willing to provide legal support for them to do this.
In an interview with The Daily Telegraph, the former “The Voice” judge said he doesn’t want the flight attendant to lose her source of income, but suggested she “be retrained on how to deal with people.”
