According to TMZ, the 23-year-old "Crank That" rapper kept walking down the aisle after attendants asked all passengers to sit down before the plane took off. When he didn't comply with the attendants' repeated requests, security escorted him out.

By way of apology, Soulja Boy said the incident resulted from his "bad night."

“It was a bad night and me and the flight staff didn’t see eye to eye," he said. "In hindsight, I’m extremely sorry for all inconvenience caused to the passengers and employees of the airline.”

Soulja Boy may have said sorry, but he later issued a supportive tweet to one of American's competitors.

Guess he'll be flying Virgin from now on?
