Azealia Banks allegedly went ballistic after her flight from New York landed in Los Angeles. Apparently, the rapper was on a Delta plane and was so ready to get off that plane that she was said to have tried to push past a French couple who had been sitting in front of her in order to make her exit, according to Philly on Sept. 22.
The French man was said to have signaled with his hand for her to hold back from her forward charge. That is when all the chaos began. As this fellow put his arm out to signal a slow down, the hip hop celebrity literally ran into his outstretched limp.
This news comes via TMZ who said that their source contends that it was at that point that Azealia Banks went bananas. Not only was she said to have punched the French guy and to sink her nails into his shirt, but she also allegedly spit at him.
To intervene, a flight attendant showed up and asked the artist in question to simmer down. At that point, he tried to take over her carry-on bag whereupon a tug of war ensued.
This push and pull allegedly caused Azealia to wind up unwillingly sinking into a seat, at which time she pulled out a couple of choice words for the airline employee. She called him names not suitable for all audiences, including some that were negative toward gay people.
TMZ was able to get its hands on video showing this part of the alleged incident. The audio on that tape did verify that disgusting names were slung at the Delta flight attendant.
Meanwhile, as that same flight attendant was involved with Banks, the co-pilot was said to have called for authorities to meet this particular passenger after she finally stepped off the flight. She told law enforcement that she was the one who was mistreated.
In addition, the French visitors who had taken the same flight as Banks so they could visit Los Angeles decided they were not inclined to press charges, That meant that Azaelia Banks was allowed to leave LAX, the alleged scene of her crime.
Meanwhile, the rapper was said to go on social media to talk about the incident. She said on her Twitter account, “… so I get hit in the face by a man and no one cares.”
She added that reports talked about what she “called the man who was blocking my exit.” Then Azaelia Banks went on to tell her followers that she does not care about what she had remarked at the time. She said in tweets that are now gone from her account, “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I don’t tolerate [expletive] and I don’t tolerate men putting their hands on me.”
