The Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am posted a series of tweets during his flight from Brisbane to Sydney accusing the Qantas flight attendant of being overly aggressive. He remarked that she was ‘racist’ and ‘beyond rude’ with the team.
The rapper, who was traveling to Sydney with his team, wrote that he experienced the worst flight services. He said that the female flight attendant clearly took out all her frustration on the colored people. The incident happened as the rapper failed to hear her voice while wearing noise-canceling headphones. He tweeted whether it was justified to call the police on a passenger for wearing the noise-canceling headphones. Later, will.i.am even met the police at the Sydney airport. He also extended his gratitude to other passengers and police who acted properly and were not as aggressive as her.

I’m sorry to say me and my group have experienced they worse service due to a overly aggressive flight attendant...
I don’t want to believe she racist.
But she has clearly aimed all her frustrations only at the people of colour

The spokesperson for the Qantas airlines said in a statement that there certainly was a misunderstanding that was misinterpreted by will.i.am wearing noise-canceling headphones as he was unable to hear the instructions of the crew.
The rapper posted a series of tweets with the hashtag #racistflightattendant. He even disclosed her name and posted her picture. Subsequently, other people also posted several tweets sharing their experiences.
Me too I was on the flight and I was hiding in the toilet shivering, shaking and shuddering uncontrollably while this horrendous racist attack was unfolding.— Mark Trent (@trentster) November 16, 2019
