Vic Mensa had some words for United Airlines after they kicked him off of one of their flights for talking on the phone.

The newly turned 23 year-old was having a telephone conversation prior to takeoff, when he says they kicked him off of the plane for disrupting customers.

In his defense, Mensa says he was trying to console a depressed fan who needed help with a situation.

Taking to Twitter, he vented through a series of clearly angry tweets, including:

“THX @united FOR KICKING ME OFF MY FLIGHT FOR TALKING TO A DEPRESSED FAN WHO NEEDED HELP ON THE PHONE.”

While he later went back and deleted the posts, United Airlines reached out to Mensa (via social media), wanting them to send him further details on the incident.
