#BLACKLIVESMATTER

Wiz Khalifa was taken down by a group of cops at LAX yesterday…all for riding one of those new Marty McFly-esque hoverboards that all the rich and elite people of social media are riding.

Apparently airport officers had a problem with the rapper using the wheels on airport property…but Wiz refused to get off his device, insisting that he wasn’t hurting anyone and that cops were not about to tell him what to do for no reason.

“This? I didn’t do nothing, anyway. What you want to do? Put me in jail because I didn’t listen to what you say?” he says to the cops. “We can have all the conversations you want to, you can end up on TMZ, destined to become as famous as you wanna be.”

A further video of the incident shared by the emcee on his Instagram, whose time stamp reads that it was taken at 3:56 pm PT, shows Khalifa being slammed to the ground on his stomach by three officers yelling, “Stop resisting!” Khalifa doesn’t appear to be resisting at all in the video, and is shown lying still on the ground, calmly replying, “I’m not resisting, sir,” as the trio of cops continue to yell “stop resisting” at him whilst cuffing him and applying pressure to his back.

We’d like to use our platform to say that with the ever-growing rise in police brutality, this could have ended a million times worse, but we’re glad Wiz is okay (and still breathing).
