We’ve all read and pfft’d at the stories of people trying to get ridiculous emotional support animals onto a flight, but this is a story about a legitimate working dog who rapper Ty Dolla $ign tried to get thrown off of a flight because he said he was allergic to the pooch. The dog was a blind woman’s seeing-eye assistant. Bitch, take a Claritin!
TMZ says that Ty Dolla $ign (government name: Tyron William Griffin Jr.) slid into his front row seat on a 40-minute Air Canada flight from Montreal to Ottawa (although, the flight attendant in the video says it’s a 19-minute flight) on Saturday when he noticed a seeing-eye dog near him and tried to get the working pooch removed from his presence. Ty, seen above with dogs he’s not allergic to, got the person he was traveling with to go up to the woman and try to convince her to get off the flight. I’m assuming that the person traveling with Ty was an assistant of sorts. I’m pretty sure that “your boss forcing you to harass a blind person” is a good reason to quit that bitch.
The woman refused to leave the flight, but offered Ty an allergy pill, which he refused, because he said he had to perform at the Escapade Music Festival that night. That’s when the flight crew got involved, and sided with Team Seeing-Eye Dog, because the woman registered her dog with the airline and Ty didn’t let anyone know about his pooch allergy beforehand. Allergies are the devil’s most unrelenting creator, but I too side with Team Seeing-Eye Dog, because if Ty was that allergic to bitches, he would’ve been sneezing into another dimension while taking a picture with Chris Brown. But seriously…
Flight attendants offered Ty an entire back row to himself, but he wanted to stay in the seat he paid for and refused their offer.
Ty Dolla $ign lived through that flight and was able to perform that night.
You’d think that someone named Ty Dolla $ign would appreciate a money maker (or in this case, kibble maker), and yet, he tried to mess with that dog’s job! Shameful. I’m also glad that Ty didn’t get his way, because if he did, I may or may not have been inspired to pull out a red Sharpie, draw hives on my body and cough while telling a flight attendant, “I’m deathly allergic to kicking brats, so can you do something about that kicking brat?”, after a kid kicks the back of my seat on a flight.
