Desiigner charged for allegedly masturbating on Delta flight
Desiigner referenced his “actions that happened on that plane,” that he was ashamed about but little was known to the public of what took place until now.
According to TMZ, they have obtained legal documents that show the rapper has been charged with indecent exposure for his actions on the Delta flight.
Desiigner allegedly masturbated in front of flight attendants while sitting first class on a Delta flight. According to an FBI investigation, he was taken to the back of the plane and monitored by friends until he spoke with authorities upon landing.
This incident comes while the rapper was touring in Thailand and Japan.
Desiigner said he would be admitting himself into a facility for help, however it is unclear what that timeframe now looks like as he is facing legal trouble.
