Wyclef Jean left two passengers annoyed when he reportedly took their seats on a scheduled flight.
According to the pair, they were taken off the plane travelling from St. Maarten to New York to make room for Wyclef and his entourage.
“We were at the gate, about to board, and then they took his group and they tore up our boarding passes. We did not receive any compensation, hotel — nothing,” one of the passengers alleged to New York Post.
“Wyclef turned around and said, ‘What’s happening, what’s going on?’ before he boarded,” they added.
“The flight agent told us, ‘Political celebrities are treated differently.’ ”
Despite claims that they were bumped from the United Airlines flight, a representative for the company insisted this was not the case.
“The customers [who were] denied boarding arrived at the gate within the final ten minutes before departure,” the representative revealed.
Wyclef’s representative did not comment on the report.
