The rap collective Migos, best known for the song "Bad and Boujee", is accusing Delta Air Lines of racial profiling after being booted off of a plane while in route to a concert in Des Moines, Iowa on Friday, reports Variety.

A Delta spokesperson told the website that Migos repeatedly ignored crew member instructions to stow the carry-on and buckle seatbelts.

According to TMZ, Takeoff, Offset and Quavo were traveling in first class on the flight out of Atlanta and had fallen asleep. Their manager, however, told TMZ that Takeoff failed to follow instructions and place his bag in the bin because he was asleep.

The situation was apparently resolved to everyone's satisfaction, however, as Delta provided Migos with an entire plane to themselves so they could make their 10 p.m. gig in Iowa on time.
