Rapper Wale alleged late Sunday that American Airlines crew told him "he didn't belong in the first class" and they will call the police. The rapper and recording artist, whose original name is Olubowale Victor Akintimehin, made the accusation on Twitter while writing about a flight delay.

"Lmao stuck on the runway AGAIN. I bet it sound like I’m wellin.. nope half n hour an counting," Wale's first tweet read. After a series of posts, American Airlines responded to the rapper writing: "We know you're ready to be in the air and we're so sorry for the wait. Looks like aircraft maintenance. We'll have you in the air soon."

Replying to the airline's response, the rapper wrote: "How about ur employees Megumi and Don told me 'ur not supposed to be in first class I’m calling the police.'"

Wale also wrote in a post that American Airlines canceled the flight he was set to board and this was the fifth such incident in 10 days.

Wale's tweet reveals the rapper was scheduled to board a plane to Los Angeles. However, it remains unclear from where he was flying.

International Business Times has reached out to American Airlines for a response about the alleged claims.
