Boy George accuses British Airways of “keeping everyone waiting in first class” while Victoria Beckham was “picked up at the plane” in a scathing tweet

Boy George has claimed British Airways made first class passengers wait on “steps” while Victoria Beckham was thrown off the plane.

The 61-year-old singer – who is in the middle of a series of concerts with his ’80s band Culture Club – took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to vent his frustration but has since deleted the tweet.

It read: “Nice touch for @britishairways to have everyone in first class waiting for steps while Victoria Beckham’s car meets them at the plane.”

The frontman continued, concluding on an angry note: “Right, to avoid flying BA for a while!”

Culture Club has been touring the US for the past two weeks and although Boy George hasn’t announced his destination, it will likely be the UK as the trio – also consisting of Roy Hay and Mikey Craig – are set to perform at London’s Kenwood House on Friday night.

While Spice Girl Victoria hasn’t documented her recent travels, her husband David and daughter Harper, 10, have been spending time together in Venice.

MailOnline has reached out to representatives from Victoria Beckham and British Airways for comment.

This isn’t the only time the artist, whose real name is George Alan O’Dowd, has spoken out about the fashion designer.

In 2018, he revealed that he was once taken down a pin or two by Posh Spice.

Years ago, the No-Nonsense star asked Victoria for an autograph when they met at a radio station and was turned down.

He told Kyle and Jackie O the hilarious anecdote during an interview on their radio show KIIS 1065.

“She’s a bit more serious now, isn’t she, but that was a fun moment in her life,” George explained, before revealing that she wrote a few rude words for him on a card.

“I grabbed her at a radio station and said can you write me something funny about it, and she wouldn’t write what I asked her to do, but she wrote, ‘Fuck off!'” he said.

In 2016, George banned solo singer Vangelis from performing the band’s 1997 hit Viva Forever, before launching a seething assault on the girl-power five-piece.

He snapped, “The Spice Girls are awful. I hate them. You just have nothing to say.

“Girl power. Yeah, and what the hell is girl power? Fuck the Spice Girls.

“They are a cynical corporate creation and proof that a good stylist is more important than a good tune.”
