Queer rapper and performance artist Mykki Blanco has described how a fellow passenger on a Delta flight called the authorities because they felt "uncomfortable" sitting next to him.
Blanco tweeted that after falling asleep on the flight from Toronto to Detroit, he awoke to find "the gentleman sitting next to me had the police called."
Blanco was then told that an FBI report would be filed from the 'interaction' and that they could go to prison if "I continued to ask questions about why this police officer was giving preferential treatment to this man."
Delta has responded directly to Blanco on Twitter saying "Discrimination of any kind isn't tolerated. We love ALL of our passengers" but there's no word yet on how the airline plans to resolve the incident.
