Ty Dolla $ign Tried to Get a Seeing Eye Dog Booted from an Air Canada Flight
He blamed it on his allergies
Published Jun 26, 2018There are few things as frustrating as an uncomfortable flight, but if your allergies are going to be a problem, you need to alert the airline ahead of time. That's a lesson Ty Dolla $ign learned the hard way when he tried — and failed — to get a seeing eye dog removed from a recent Air Canada flight.
TMZ has video of an Air Canada flight attendant kindly explaining to the performer that they would not be removing a seeing eye dog or its visually impaired owner on a recent flight from Montreal to Ottawa. Ty was on the commuter flight to perform at the Escapade Music Festival.
Apparently, Ty tried to have the woman and her dog removed from the flight. When someone offered him an allergy pill, he said he couldn't take it because he had to perform. He was then offered a seat at the back of the plane, far away from the dog, but refused to move because he had paid for first class.
