LMFAO: Mitt Romney’s Airplane Scuffle Was With Rapper

Days after Mitt Romney‘s bizarre airplane fight while leaving Vancouver and the Olympics, more details about what actually happened on the flight are emerging.

And it only gets stranger – apparently the other guy was rap star Sky Blu of the group LMFAO…and he says Romney started it!

TMZ has the video response from Sky Blu to Romney, in which he describes the circumstances. For those who aren’t familiar with LMFAO, they’re a Black Eyed Peas-esque “hip-hop” group, and Blu is the guy in the yellow shirt with the braid and sideways hat. Fox & FriendsSteve Doocy summed up the situation this morning like this: “While Romney says he was threatened after asking the man to put his seat back, Sky Blu disputes the story. He says Romney got violent with him first.”

Interestingly, Time‘s Michael Scherer reports Mr. Blu is the nephew of Democratic fundraiser and Motown Records founder Berry Gordy.

This may require a Jagerbomb Summit.

Here’s Fox & Friends recapping this story (enjoy Doocy saying ‘LMFAO’):
