Shaming airlines on Twitter is basically an art form, but nobody does it like Danny Brown.

Following a delayed flight, the rapper threatened to drop a diss track aimed at Delta featuring "Dr. Dao" — a reference to David Dao, the man who was violently dragged off a United Airlines flight in April when the flight was overbooked.

Brown took back his threat after the airline's Twitter account responded with an apology. "No, we good," he wrote. "You know I love you guys."
