Upon landing, Post - real name Austin Post - thanked his fans for their prayers and slammed people who allegedly "wished death" upon him during the incident.

Speaking to TMZ after the dramatic ordeal, Post admitted "I f**king hate flying."

"We took off and apparently there was a sensor in the back that flipped out, and we landed. Then we took off again and we heard the tyre pop, and I don’t know if it was smoke or whatever [was] coming in…"

"I was like “Sh*t, this is not good at all”". He said that he sent out a mass text to his family and friends just in case the worst scenario happened, before adding that he was in need of a beer.
