Banking on controversy to keep her in the headlines has been the foundation of Azealia Banks’ career. Now, as recent footage evidences, the Yung Rapunzel is not letting up or down on that expectation.
Recently demonstrating her fury is not limited to land, the rapstress took to Delta airlines to wield insults to crew members and passengers – even slamming the flight attendant with homophobic slurs.
Did you miss all the ruckus? Catch the video below and see her interesting response:
A passenger sitting next to Banks tells TMZ, when the Delta flight landed just before 1 AM Tuesday, Azealia made a beeline for the front door. She had been sitting in seat 6A but a French couple in the 3rd row was blocking her exit as they pulled their luggage from the overhead bin.
The eyewitness says Azealia tried to squeeze by the couple when the French man put his hand out. Azealia, we’re told, went nuts. The eyewitness says she spit in the man’s face, punched him in the face and clawed at his shirt.
At that point we’re told the flight attendant grabbed Azeala’s bag and told her to calm down. She lost her balance, fell to the seat, stood up and then a tug-of-war over the luggage ensued. This is where the video begins.
Azealia demands to take her bag and leave, and eventually calls the flight attendant a “f***ing f***ot” — a homophobic slur.
We’re told the co-pilot came out and told Azealia the police were called. She then ran off the plane, dropping her cell phone.
Police caught up with Azealia at baggage claim and spoke with witnesses as well, but the French couple decided not to press charges because they were here on holiday and didn’t want the hassle.
Normally the media coverage would be responded to by a lengthy rant by the self proclaimed ice princess. This time, she kept her response short and sweet:
