Jason Derulo is claiming he was racially profiled by American Airlines on Wednesday, during an altercation over the number of bags he tried to check. TMZ reports that Derulo shared a livestream video explaining that the pilot cussed him out and that he was confronted by 15 cops when the plane was turned back around and landed at Miami International Airport. Derulo goes on to say that the cops were aggressive toward him until they learned who he was. “If I was not who I was, if I was not Jason Derulo, I wouldn’t be here right now,” the singer noted. “I’d be in f**king cuffs. It’s 100 percent racial.” A source at the airline has since confirmed that elite customers such as Derulo receive three free checked bags. However, the singer was confronted when one of his friends tried to check 19 bags (presumably belonging to the entire team).
