Speaking out about the alleged incident, which occurred on a Qantas flight, the musician claimed in a series of Tweets that he had been targeted by an "overly aggressive" attendant, before posting a photo that appeared to show a police officer waiting for him upon landing. "But she has clearly aimed all her frustrations only at the people of colour (sic)".

He claims the flight attendant unloaded on him and someone on the flight - presumably the pilot - called ahead for cops to meet the plane when it landed.

The issue reportedly started when the musician couldn't hear announcements over the PA system because he was wearing noise-canceling headphones. He added: "Thank God the other passengers testified that SHE was out of Control". I wasn't out of hand.

Will.i.am, who is visiting Australia as part of the RNB Fridays Live festival with his band Black Eyed Peas, also complained about having the federal police greet him at the terminal after being "polite" and respectful to crew members during his ordeal.

"There was a misunderstanding on board, which seems to have been exacerbated by will.i.am wearing noise-cancelling headphones and not being able to hear instructions from crew", the airline said in a statement. Is calling the police on a passenger for not hearing the P.A due to wearing noise canceling headphones appropriate? I did comply quickly & politely, only to be greeted by police.

Later, he followed up the first tweet with a second featuring a picture of a policeman and named the attendant, labelling her racist. I think I was targeted'.

No further action was required as a result. "The AFP considers this matter finalised", authorities told the outlet.
