T-Pain decided to take to social media to explain explain exactly how TSA found a loaded gun in his carry-on bag at Hartfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport earlier this week.
He says it was an ‘honest mistake’ and simply forgot it was in his bag.
According to Page six, “Last week, it was reported that the artist was detained at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport after a gun was discovered at a security checkpoint. After T-Pain produced a permit to carry, the weapon was returned to him. His security guard, who was carrying the firearm in his bag, may face charges, however. In all, T-Pain was given a $200 fine.”
He explained that he was filming a project for Red Bull with Murda Beats and got his security guard to collect the guns and jewelry since strangers would be in his home. The items were placed in the bag.
Check out what T-Pain had to say below.
For everybody reading headlines and making their own stories and calling me an “ignorant thug with a gun” just because that’s what you draw from my image. What they’re NOT talking about is how I didn’t leave my Security stuck there with MY gun when most artist would’ve ran off from fear of the press *cough cough* it was an honest mistake. NO CHARGES. NO ARRESTS. All my guns are legal, registered to me under my license to carry and out of the reach of my children because I’m not a dumbass. Atlanta PD unloaded the rounds and handed it right back to me, I sent it home and caught the next flight out. Pls for the love of God. CALM YOUR TITS!!!
