20-year-old rapper, real name Gazi Garcia Derek Dombrowski, a JetBlue representative, has confirmed he is banned from flying on JetBlue after refusing to wear a face mask during his flight on Sunday.
During his flight from Fort Lauderdale to Los Angeles, the “Gucci Gang” singer became verbally abusive with crew members after being asked multiple times and refusing to comply with JetBlue’s face-covering policy, “resulting in law enforcement involvement.
“His return reservation has been canceled and he is no longer welcome to fly with JetBlue,” Dombrowski said. “The safety of all customers and crew members is JetBlue’s number one priority.”
The airline’s COVID-19 policy requires all passengers aged two years and over to wear a face covering throughout the flight to ensure the safety of all customers and crew.
A representative of Garcia declined to comment.

New aviation etiquette:JetBlue became the first US airline to make travelers wear face masks
JetBlue Airways was the first US airline to require passengers to wear face masks amid the coronavirus pandemic and began enforcing new safety protocols on May 4.
“Wearing a face covering isn’t about protecting yourself, it’s about protecting those around you,” Joanna Geraghty, JetBlue’s president and chief operating officer, told USA TODAY in April. “On board the aircraft, cabin air is distributed and cleaned well through filters every few minutes, but this is a common space where we have to be considerate of others. We also ask our customers to follow these CDC guidelines at the airport as well.”
