Delta is now the latest airline to come under fire for their treatment of paying customers. The company is making headlines after kicking off a passenger for using the bathroom while waiting to take off. Literally.

Kima Hamilton was set to take a flight from Atlanta to Milwaukee on April 18 when the flight was delayed for nearly two hours. According to Hamilton, while the plane sat on the tarmac, he had an urge to use the restroom.

Initially, when he got up to use the restroom, a flight attendant said the plane would lose its place in the take-off lineup if he got out of his seat. So he agreed to hold it. But 30 minutes later, the plane was still taxiing, so Hamilton quickly got up. Then … things took a turn for the worse.

“The pilot came on and said, ‘Ladies and gentlemen, I’m sorry for the inconvenience but we have to return to the gate and remove a passenger,’” Hamilton told the Milwaukee’s Journal Sentinel. “It escalated to that point that fast.”

When he came back from the lavatory, he was told to get off the plane.

“I’m not really clear on why I’m being asked to leave this plane. I purchased this ticket, I had an emergency. I had to pee,” Hamilton can be heard saying in cell phone footage recorded by passenger Krista Rosolino. “I tried to hold it the first time and you said I absolutely couldn’t and I’m being kicked off the plane?” he added, before the crew member responded, “I need to talk to you outside.”

According to Hamilton, another Delta employee approached him and insisted he leave. When the 39-year-old Milwaukee-bound passenger finally agreed to get off the flight, the FBI greeted him at the gate.

Kima was then forced to purchase a Southwest flight to get home.

The story is making headlines this week following a whirlwind of controversial stories with airlines.

Earlier this month, United Airlines was blasted for aggressively pulling Dr. David Dao from his flight. And just several days ago,  Simon, a 3-foot-long, 10-month-old Continental Giant rabbit on track to become the largest bunny ever, mysteriously died while on board a United flight from London to Chicago.

No shade to CodeBlack Films, but it’s last flick, All Eyes On Me, was kind of a disaster. From the poor ratings and reviews, to stars like Jada Pinkett Smith and 50 Cent slamming the film, folks just weren’t feeling it.

But that may all change with their new movie Traffik. The action-packed thriller slated for theaters April 27, 2018 stars Omar Epps, Paula Patton and Laz Alonso, and it looks pretty darn good.

Peep the trailer below.

In the film, Brea (Paula Patton) and John (Omar Epps) are off for a romantic weekend in the mountains. Isolated at a remote estate, the couple are surprised by the arrival of two friends, another couple, Darren (Laz Alonso) and Malia (Roselyn Sanchez). Just when the weekend starts to get back on track, a violent biker gang turns up and begins to torment them. The foursome are forced to fight for their lives against a gang who will stop at nothing to protect their secrets.
