What’s going on?
Lil Pump — whose real name is Gazzy Garcia — has been banned after he refused to wear a face mask during a flight last Sunday, according to USA Today.
- Lil Pump reportedly “became verbally abusive with crew members after being asked multiple times and refusing to comply with JetBlue’s face covering policy,” JetBlue representative Derek Dombrowski told USA Today.
- Law enforcement soon became involved, too.
- “His return reservation was canceled and he is no longer welcome to fly on JetBlue,” Dombrowski said. “The safety of all customers and crewmembers is JetBlue’s first priority.”
Lil Pump joins hundreds of other Americans who have violated airline company policies related to COVID-19, which has forced airlines to ban people from flights.
Delta CEO Ed Bastian wrote in an internal company memo that Delta will keep its policies in place to make sure people stay safe on flights during the pandemic.
