In a short Twitter post, Maps shared how he was robbed of a few items at O.R Tambo airport in Johannesburg.

“My luggage bag got broken into at OR Tambo. What they stole: A pair of shoes, a t-shirt, a bucket hat, and a toothbrush – yes, a toothbrush,” tweeted Maps. He also went n to joke about how the person may have needed those items for a night out:

“My theory is that mans had a date or something and needed all these things to complete his fit and be fresh for it,” he wrote.

While he did have a good laugh about it, he was quite annoyed at the state that the criminal had left the rest of his stuff in because he is what he refers to as “pedantic.”

Tweeps soon shared similar stories of their own

“Christ that would make me see a deeper red as well. The last time they stole shoes and perfume from my case, nothing was messed up, the lock wasn’t broken. I had no idea until I got home and started unpacking. And I specifically remember packing them. Vanished without a trace.”

“That airline was the worst with thieving.”
