DENVER — United Airlines is facing a new wave of criticism this week after loading a famous rapper's puppy onto the wrong plane.
On July 14, rapper Schoolboy Q boarded a flight from Missouri to Burbank, California. During a stopover in Denver, arrangements had been made for a french bulldog puppy he'd just purchased to be loaded onto his connecting flight. But when Schoolboy Q landed and went to greet his new pet, he was stunned to find someone else's animal in the cage.
As it turns out, the poor little puppy had been switched by mistake during the flight transfer, and was on his way to Chicago. As you can imagine, the grammy-nominated artist was none too pleased, and voiced his displeasure on Twitter, demanding answers.
Thankfully, United managed to locate the puppy, named Yeerndamean, and reunited him with his famous owner a few hours later.
United issued the disgruntled rapper a full refund and a public apology. Upon being interviewed about the situation, Schoolboy Q told CNN plans on suing.
