Rapper Soulja Boy proved he's far from an actual soldier when he outright failed to follow basic instructions, getting himself kicked off of an American Airlines flight.

The incident happened last week, and naturally, it was caught on camera.

When flight attendants were advising passengers to sit down and buckle up to prepare for takeoff, Soulja Boy took it to mean "everyone except Soulja Boy." As a result, the rapper kept strolling the aisles.

When a flight attendant addressed him directly, he still refused to sit. Because, you know, he's a rebel and goes hard.

The flight attendant proceeded to explain that if Soulja Boy didn't oblige, he'd get kicked off of the plane.

And Soulja Boy didn't oblige ... so he got kicked off of the plane and consequently delayed takeoff for the rest of the passengers who actually know how to function in society.

On the bright side, Soulja Boy feels bad about what he did. He told TMZ, "It was a bad night and me and the flight staff didn't see eye to eye. In hindsight, I'm extremely sorry for all inconvenience caused to the passengers and employees of the airline."

At least Soulja Boy knows how to 'Tell 'Em' "sorry."
