Rapper vs. Mitt Romney! LMFAO member Sky Blu says he was the person involved in plane altercation with presidential candididate

Sky Blu, one half of the electro-rap duo LMFAO, has posted a video message on the band’s website claiming to be the person who was removed from a plane at Vancouver airport last Monday following an altercation with Republican politician Mitt Romney.

It was widely reported that Romney had gotten into an argument with a man who was sitting in front of the politician’s wife after the ex-presidential candidate asked him to put his seat in the upright position prior to take-off. An aide for Romney was quoted as saying the man became “physically violent.”

Blu appears to confirm in the video that he did take matters into his own hands, although he also claims the incident was not all his fault. The video concludes with Blu saying that he has no hard feelings toward Romney, but that he won’t be voting for him “because I’m a Democrat.”

A spokesman for Air Canada declined today to confirm the identity of the man removed from the plane, saying it was a “police matter.” A spokesman for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police told EW that because the man was not criminally charged his name could not legally be released to the press.

    Forget politics. Forget everything else. I will NEVER take the side of someone who reclines his seat on an airplane. Automatic jerkhood, right there.

    • JJ

      Amen to that brother.

      • JJJ

        Agreed

    • Gale

      So true!

      lol u short

  • Quagmire

    What kind of self respecting rapper lets himself get beaten up by an old white Republican?

    • smilefor me

      Quagmire, 1. Sky Blu is also white 2. Romney didn’t “beat him up” and 3. Romney would pee his pants if he was ever faced with real danger

  • Angelicamb

    AMEN!

  • erin

    Kind of funny. Personal Jerk, meet Political Jerk.

  • Moe

    HAHAHAH. This is hilarious. I wish I was on that plane so i can kick Romney from the back. HAHAHAHA. Go Sky Blu.

    • whatevs

      Very classy of you to want to use violence on a person whose opinions are different from yours, since you are clearly the most intelligent person who ever lived and must know everything.

      Mitt Romney aka Agent Provocateur, plays being the victim in false flag attack on a Canadian plane, by Berry Gordies aka Motown great, relative.

      Romney in a grab for the golden ring of press attention and political hay uses spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom to flood the press with false flag stories of an attack on Romney. Unable to prove the attacker was Muslim (Romney feeling they look the same), Romney identifies the attacker as ‘unknown’.

      • KRibbons

        don’t be ridiculous

  • Jayson D.

    So obnoxious! Those who feel like they don’t have to abide by the rules like everyone else are so self absorbed. How hard is it to put up your seat like everyone else has to? What’s the matter Sky Blu? Are you not getting enough publicitiy?

  • JMC

    If Sky Blu was a good rapper, he wouldn’t have to fly commercial!

    • erin

      yeah, because “good rappers” are the ones whose songs get the most radio airplay and sell the most…

      • JMC

        Jay-Z = good rapper and he don’t fly commercial!

    • CT

      So, what was Romneys excuse for flying coach? So he could look human?
      Looks like it backfired, Golden Boy got his hands slapped.

      • MultiPass

        The reason he is rich is because he is cheap as fcuk

  • IKnowItAll

    Sky Blu is an entitled moron– his father did a horrible job raising him. If there was a problem during take-off, it is the person seated behind the reclined chair who risks injury.
    This prick needs to understand that rules and laws apply to him and maybe change the name of the band to STFU.

    Romneys dad did a bad job raising Mitt.

    WAYLAND, MASS. (1981) — ARREST- DISORDERLY CONDUCT.

    In June 1981, ROMNEY attempted to launch family motorboat at Cochituate State Park despite park ranger advising that he was prohibited from doing so because his boat did not display proper registration. ROMNEY was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. ROMNEY handcuffed and transported in bathing suit to Natick police station, where released on own recognizance.5 Disposition: Charges were dropped when ROMNEY threatened to sue the state for false arrest; case dismissed at Natick District Court in February 1982. ROMNEY successfully petitioned that the files be sealed.6

      I’m surprised there’s a record of him ever having spent any time in Massachusetts.

      • CT

        ROTFL

    Now that is a picture Mitt in a swimsuit and handcuffed!

  • rapperwannabe

    I don’t like politicos but in this case it was the rapper who started all the drama. He should have just had his seat up during the take-off like everyone else. Who did he think he was, a king? I guess he had never before flown in an airplane, or more likely he was acting a societal retard that rappers would often sing to worship. If you just didn’t know to have your seat upright, learn, you three-year old: seats leaning back during a take-off or touch-down pose a potential danger to the people right behind, and that’s why it is a common rule to keep seats in right position at those times. And, please cut it off, nobody cares whether you are a rapper or a jerk or whatever, for god’s sake.

  • erin

    I guess it’s just those of us from Mass. that had to suffer through his horrible stint as governor that find delight in this story. I, too, would love to kick the back of his seat throughout a flight. and no, whatevs, that doesn’t qaulify as “violence.”

    • whatevs

      Violence: n. Physical force exerted for the purpose of violating, damaging, or abusing.

      Unless you don’t know how to read, it should be clear to you that it does qualify as violence, but thanks for your attempt at explaining what it is or isn’t.

      Maybe after you learn how to spell correctly, you can start working on what words actually mean.

  • PuddingSponge

    Pretty obvious what happened here. Mr. Rap, being a talentless nobody (kind of fits all rappers doesn’t it?)
    leans back too far in his seat restricting the space of, and probably coming in contact with, Mr.Romney.
    Mr. Romney asks him to move the seat up and Mr. Rap declines, probably saying a few choice words in the process. Mitt is forced to use his mitts to make his point.
    Now Mr. Rap is trying to milk the publicity to get a better recording deal so he can sell CD’s and such to
    fools who actually think rap is music, and to other fools who think rappers actually have talent.

  • Farsi

    The reason the seatbacks are not allowed back during takeoff and landing is to allow passengers a faster escape if the plane has a problem or crash. The dimwit rapper is an ahole. Now he can get in an Escalade and get a cap in his ass like most rappers eventually do.

    • CT

      Does not excuse Romney. Romney has a long history of violence towards others. Romney is bossy, pushy, loud, and should not touch people and lies.

      Romney should be ashamed of himself with the onslaught of press releases trying to make him out to be a victim, when Romney was the one which started the whole thing!

      • anon

        who is telling you all these lies? certainly not the news. you sound stupid when you talk like this

    Romney made a mess out of the incident, giving Canada a bad name, when all Romney was doing was giving the press a false flag story AND lying.
