“This is the most bizarre form of homophobia I’ve ever encountered.”

Imagine napping on a domestic flight, and waking up to police threatening you with an FBI report and jail time.

That's what queer artist Mykki Blanco claims happened on a Delta flight Friday from Toronto to Detroit after a passenger complained he was "not comfortable" next to Blanco--who was asleep.

The musician broke down the exchange on Twitter last night.

Delta later reached out to Blanco about the incident with a message of support and a promise to investigate.

Blanco is currently touring the U.S. with rapper Cakes Da Killa
