Lil Pump, whose anti-mask, COVID-denying video clip was posted online Sunday, may have been banned from flying on JetBlue, where he allegedly made the pronouncement, according to a new report.

“All 2020, 2021, I’m not wearing no mask,” he said defiantly in a video posted on Twitter by rap and hip-hop platform DatPiff on Sunday. “I don’t gotta wear no f—ing mask, bitch. Corona’s fake! Bye!”

Now TMZ has learned that a customer flying Saturday from Fort Lauderdale to Los Angeles “became verbally abusive with crew members, and also took off his face covering mid-flight,” the outlet reported. He then refused to put it back on when requested.

JetBlue called ahead to the airport to request cops on standby, TMZ said, though he doesn’t appear to have been arrested. The airline has required passengers to wear masks since May 4.

TMZ also obtained flight deck correspondence describing Lil Pump’s behavior, which ranged from being “noncompliant” to coughing and sneezing into a blanket without a mask. Though Pump in the end donned the mask, he lambasted the airline later on social media, TMZ said.
