It’s another day and Azealia Banks has found herself in another bit of controversy thanks to a newly surfaced video of the rapper fighting with a Delta Airlines crewmember and throwing a homophobic slur.
The viideo, posted by TMZ was reportedly taken after Banks had a physical confrontation with another passenger.
“When the Delta flight landed just before 1 a.m. 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,” TMZ reports. “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.”
The video takes place after this confrentation and shows banks in a tug-o-war over her luggage with the crewmember who she later called a the f-word.
Banks has never shied from throwing that word around and even defended her use of it saying:
“The word ‘f–‘ came to me from my mother. And it was never a thing about a guy being gay. It was always just a man who hates women. You can be gay or straight. You can be a straight f–,” Banks told a Sirius Radio channel host. “F– are men who want to bring women down, fuck with their heads, control them.”
