See a video of her meltdown + her latest Twitter rant.
Azealia Banks caused a scene while exiting a Delta flight from New York to LAX Monday night.
We’ll let TMZ take this one:
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 Azealia’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.
Azealia claims the French man actually hit her in the face. She adds, “I don’t tolerate bitchassness and I don’t tolerate men putting their hands on me.”
Here’s a visual of it:
Now that her bigotry has gone viral, Banks is taking the opportunity to promote her record. She briefly closed her Twitter to the public before opening it back up (and losing her verified status). She Tweeted, “Now you all can sit here in your fake outrage and discuss this amongst yourselves !! I’m headed to the beauty parlor! SIYONARA MOTHERFUCKERS.”
