As it was previously reported, Post-Malone’s private jet had to make an unexpected landing on Tuesday after the plane he was on had two of its tires suddenly explode. Mr. Malone is lucky the plane was able to make it on the ground.
While most were fearful for the cloud-rap singer, some online were a little more vindictive, which sparked the ire of the beerbongs and Bentleys crooner.
In fact, people online were hoping for him to die – not a nice thing to wish on someone at all. The 23-year-old Song Of The Year Award-winner was on his way to the United Kingdom just ahead of the 2018 Reading and Leeds Festival when the incident occurred.
Following the scary accident, Post Malone, whose real name is Austin Post, thanked the people who feared for his life, as well as those who showed up to the airport to make sure he was ok.
However, Malone wrote that he couldn’t believe the sheer number of “people (who) wished death on me on this website.” After the altercation, he spoke with TMZ reporters and dished on his hatred for flying, which undoubtedly, just got a little worse.
“#PostMalone is currently onboard a plane that's set to perform an emergency landing after two of the plane's tires allegedly blew out after takeoff. Malone and his team left from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey Tuesday headed to London. A law enforcement source at Teterboro tells us the private plane's tires blew off during takeoff and the pilot circled back around to perform an emergency landing. In air traffic audio — obtained by TMZ — the pilot makes it clear, they've lost a tire, and asks for permission to circle above … he also makes it known there are 16 people on the plane. Our source says air traffic control then informed the pilot to continue flight to Massachusetts in order to burn more fuel for a safer possible crash landing. We're told the plane had 3,700 gallons of fuel to burn. A video — obtained by TMZ — shows emergency personnel on the ground in Teterboro in position for the plane before it was decided they should land it elsewhere. Post performed at Monday's MTV VMA Awards with #21Savage and #Aerosmith. The rapper also won Song of the Year for "Rockstar." The private plane — a Gulfstream IV — is still in the air.” ?? @tmz_tv @postmalone #WSHH
“I hate flying in general,” the singer stated, but he’s thankful for the talented crew who were able to land the plane safely. The “Congratulations” singer-songwriter said that he needed to mix a beer and some wine together to relax.
Post is on his way to the United Kingdom again on a replacement jet, and will appear alongside Travis Scott and Fall Out Boy while at Reading And Leeds on Saturday.
Malone’s last album performed extremely well both commercially and critically, earning over 500,000,000 streams on Spotify within its first week, breaking a few records in the process. However, Drake’s Scorpio went to overtake the bench mark he had set.
