Vanilla Ice was caught on video berating a Delta Airlines employee and fellow passengers after he missed a flight Monday at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

The rapper and actor, born Robert Van Winkle, was recorded by a bystander having a meltdown after he missed his flight to Nebraska, where he was scheduled to perform that night, The New York Post reported.

Vanilla Ice told TMZ that he arrived at the gate an hour early and sat near the ticket counter waiting for his flight to be called. He said the next thing he knew, the gateway door was closed and employees said they were no longer boarding.

“No one called my name. No one said anything! You can’t cut me off this flight,” he’s says to a Delta employee in the video.

“No one has called me. No one said final call. Nothing,” he continues. “You didn’t board me! I’m sitting in the freaking line … You didn’t even say anything.”

The rapper really got heated after an onlooker said, “You gotta watch the monitor, dude.”

“Hey, I don’t need any information from you, man,” Vanilla Ice shouted back. “Shut your [expletive] mouth … You don’t work here. Shut up!”

The woman who recorded the incident said Vanilla Ice missed his flight because he arrived 10 minutes after the cutoff time for boarding and was too busy talking on his cellphone to notice, The Post reported.

She also claims the rapper threw his ticket at the Delta agent and cursed at her.

It’s unclear if Delta got him on another flight or if he a different airline to Nebraska. He performed Monday night at the Divots Conference Center in Norfolk.
