Los Angeles: Rapper Will.i.am was left embarrassed after being asked to leave a first class lounge at an airport as the staff thought his membership card was not real.

The Black Eyed Peas star posted a series of tweets hitting out at United Airlines after being told to leave a VIP lounge May 10 because staff thought he had a fake membership card, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Will.i.am posted on Twitter: "United Airlines is the worst. I am a member and I have my card to prove it. But they tell me my card is fake and kick me out the lounge."

It is not known which airport the rapper was flying from but he posted about visiting fellow rapper Puff Daddy in Washington D.C. for his speech at Howard University.

He also wrote: "I fly so much. A business should know who their customers are. It's okay I am making this my lounge". He also posted a photograph of a chair in the corner of the airport.
