Addressing replies, the 33-year-old said he was supposed to by flying first class from Orlando to Toronto, but when he’d arrived at the gate his ticket was tore up and move down to economy due to a ‘full flight’.

He continued: “Kicking me out of first class to back of plane is what it is but doing it at the gate. Literally tearing my ticket up. No explanation other than ‘full flight’.
