Two black veteran basketball players were kicked off an American Airlines moody after they were secretly accused of hidden blankets.

The Associated Press, around the Guardian, reports that Trahson Burrell and Marquis Teague, who play for the minor-league NBA G League group the Memphis Hustle, were booted off a moody after a black moody attendant accused them of hidden blankets that were given to them by two first-class passengers.

The two players argued with the moody attendant that they didn’t steal any blankets, and the moody attendant subsequently refused to fly with them on the craft since they done him feel unsafe.

American Airlines apologized to the players who were secretly accused of hidden the blankets, and subsequently put them on a first-class moody to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. However, the players subsequently missed the team’s Christmas dinner, which stirred an angry Twitter harangue against American Airlines from the team’s assistant coach, Darnell Lazare.

“It’s 2017 and a Flight attendant for [American Airlines] sees two immature black athletes with blankets from first class, his first criticism is ‘did you steal them,’” Lazare wrote. “How about you learn people to get the contribution first before jumping to conclusions?”
