    Rapper ScHoolboy Q took to Twitter after United Airlines sent his dog to the wrong city on Friday.

    “You guys r idiots @united HOW U PUT MY DOG ON THE WRONG FLIGHT???? I need answers,” the 30-year-old artist tweeted around 5:30 p.m. PDT. 

    ScHoolboy Q, whose real name is Quincy Matthew Hanley, told TMZ he purchased a French Bulldog puppy from Denver that was supposed to arrive in California on Friday.

    But when the rapper went to pick up his pup, named “Yeerndamean,” at the airport in Burbank, he discovered that the dog had instead been mistakenly sent to Chicago.

    "My little dog been moving around since the A.M., prolly has pee and number 2 all in his cage smh," the rapper told CNN via text message, adding that he planned to sue.

    The dog arrived at his Los Angeles home around 12 a.m. PDT, ScHoolboy Q later revealed on Instagram. His original tweet garnered thousands of responses – including one from United – and more than 60,000 retweets by Saturday afternoon.

    “Our customer’s dog was safely reunited with its owner Friday evening,” the airline said in a statement Saturday. “We have been in touch with our customer to sincerely apologize for this mistake and are providing a refund.”
