Rapper Post Malone lashes out at trolls who wished death upon him during recent flight emergency
Twitter remains a terrible place and while in the air Malone apparently received a ton of death wishes and here's what he had to say: 'f*** you. but not today'.
After rapper Post Malone's private jet was forced to make an emergency landing, several of his critics "wished death" upon him on Twitter. The widely known artist was on his way to the UK where he was scheduled to appear at the Reading and Leeds festival when the mishap occurred. The aircraft reportedly blew two tires while it was en route from Teterboro, New Jersey, to Luton Airport.
Upon learning about the situation, authorities decided to divert the flight to make an emergency landing at New York Stewart International Airport, in Newburgh. While the rapper thanked followers on Twitter for their prayers, he said he couldn't believe "how many people wished death on me on this website".

That said, the rapper’s fans took to Twitter following the tweet to attack those that allegedly wished ill him:

If you wished death upon Post Malone, you’re disgusting. Just because you dont like him or his music, doesn’t mean you can wish him death. At the end of the day, he’s someones son, someones love, someones best friend, someones idol.— ✞ (@estherwuff) August 21, 2018
Although the G-IV aircraft landed safely, the Federal Aviation Administration would be conducting a thorough investigation into the incident. As the jet descended on to the tarmac, carrying 16 people on board, Malone's fans were already waiting to cheer him at the airport. Quite a few fans wished for his well being and hoped he would be okay.
Having said that, NYC aviation, that reports on aviation news, said on Twitter that the plane had made a "textbook landing" and ambulance crews were nearby only as a "precautionary measure".
In a conversation with TMZ after the incident, Post Malone said, "I hate flying in general. I don't even know what to say man, I'm shook."
Praising his aviation team, he said, "We're here on Earth and I need a beer and I need some wine at the same time mixed together." In a series of posts, with one video showing the team assuming the brace position, Malone wrote: "Landed safely guys, serious, been circling the air for hours, but we're good."
As of now, the notorious rapper is scheduled to perform at Reading Festival on Friday, followed by a performance at Leeds Festival the next day. The 23-year-old rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer, who rose to fame following the release of his debut single White Iverson in 2010, will be playing on the main stage alongside artists such as Travis Scott, Fall Out Boy, The Wombats, and The Kooks.
