In a later tweet, Williams alleged that he was arrested and maced by police for refusing to leave the airport after he was turned away.

He was freed after giving a statement to police. 'If I was a young white male or young white female I would have been treated slightly differently, ' Mr Williams, from Catford, south London, told MailOnline. "WHOLE other story", Williams wrote.

British Airways said that Mr Williams had hand luggage but had not paid for a bag to go in the hold.

"The decision to deny boarding was absolutely not based on race". His behavior eventually led to him being pepper sprayed and removed from the airport by security.

"Being held at Iceland Keflavik airport because I had no baggage put all the clothes on and they still won't let me on".

Reports say he was denied entry to the plane and was later arrested for causing a disruption.

He posted two videos asking the employees why he wasn't allowed to board, to which one of the airline staff responded: 'Do we need to call the police?'

Mr Williams claims he was stuck at the Iceland airport with no money and without his belongings as his luggage successfully flown to England without him.

Adding more to the woes, he was denied again by EasyJet staff the next day.

He was subsequently prevented from boarding an easyjet flight while adopting a similar approach the next day, as, according to the airline, the captain and crew said they had concerns about his previous behaviour, making him ineligible for a refund.

The next day, Williams tried to board a flight on easyJet, which normally charges fees for carry-on and checked bags - and they didn't make an exception for Williams, even when he again tried to wear all of his clothes. The airline also refused to provide the refund to Hawaii citing terms and conditions.
