A Delta crew member threatened to remove a passenger who repeatedly tried to sing her new gospel song on the flight

  • A Delta Air Lines crew member threatened to remove a passenger who wouldn't stop singing.

  • The passenger, a Grammy-nominated gospel singer, posted about the encounter on Instagram.

  • Many commenters weren't sympathetic toward her, saying the employee did his job.

A Grammy-nominated singer was nearly booted from a Delta Air Lines flight after continually attempting to sing her newly released song.

The passenger, Bobbi Storm, took to Instagram on Saturday to share a video of the altercation between her and a Delta crew member. In the video, Storm walked up the aisle before being told to sit back down.

The video showed her taking her seat and turning to the people around her to tell them she had just found out she was "up for two Grammys" and had released a new single titled "We Can't Forget Him."

The Daily Mail reported that Storm was a featured vocalist on Maverick City Music's latest Grammy-nominated album, "The Maverick Way Complete." The band is a Christian singing group nominated for best gospel album and best contemporary Christian music performance/song.

Storm did not respond to a request for comment from Insider, made outside regular working hours.

"I sing for the Lord," Storm said in the video. Shortly after, the Delta crew member approached Storm and told her to "be quiet."

"I'm doing what the Lord is telling me to do," Storm continued.

The crew member repeatedly asked Storm in the video whether she could sit quietly during the flight.

"If you're not able to follow my instruction, you will not be able to take this flight," the employee continued. While Storm appeared to concede at first, when the crew member walked away, she said she'd continue to "sing it on the low" and then proceeded to do so.

On Sunday, a Delta representative told Insider the company had been in touch with Storm but declined to comment further other than to say, "For the safety of our customers and crew, it's always important to follow crew instructions."

In a follow-up video posted Saturday, Storm said Delta had reached out but added she didn't want the employee to be "reprimanded."

"I simply want us to keep in mind how to treat each other," she said.

Dozens of comments on Storm's posts called the singer out, accusing her of being "out of order." Several commented that the employee was just "doing his job" and that some passengers may not want to listen to somebody singing on a flight.

This has been a year of unruly passengers, with numerous people being kicked off flights for inappropriate behavior.

In June, a Delta flight had to make an unscheduled landing after a passenger became "unruly" and had to be restrained by other travelers. A United flight had to be diverted the following month after an economy passenger walked up to the business-class section.
