Rapper Post Malone was on board a private jet that landed safely in New York after it blew 2 tires on takeoff from a New Jersey airport Tuesday morning.
Minutes after the jet made an emergency landing, Malone took to Twitter.com to thank his followers for their prayers. He also lashed out at Twitter users who wished death on him.
Malone, 23, tweeted: “I landed guys. thank you for your prayers. can’t believe how many people wished death on me on this website. fuck you. but not today.”
The Grammy-winning rapper and 15 others were on board the Gulfstream IV jet heading to London when it blew 2 tires on takeoff.
The pilots flew in a holding pattern for hours to burn jet fuel before the crippled plane was redirected to Stewart International Airport in New York where the jet landed safely just before 4 p.m. Tuesday.
On Monday night, Malone won a MTV Video Music Award for his single "rockstar" featuring Atlanta rapper 21 Savage.
