Authorities say a plane that blew two tires during takeoff at a small New Jersey airport has successfully made an emergency landing in New York. According to TMZ, one of the 16 passengers on board was rapper Post Malone.
According to TMZ,
1:15 PM PT -- We just FaceTimed with Post, who told us he doesn't like flying to begin with and he was super scared. Now that's he's on the ground, he needs alcohol!! Post tweeted too, saying, "i landed guys. thank you for your prayers. can't believe how many people wished death on me on this website. f**k you. but not today."
