Rapper Azealia Banks was flying from New York to Los Angeles on Delta late last night, when she was apparently displeased by the speed at which a French couple in front of her were disembarking. Per TMZ:
A passenger sitting next to Banks tells TMZ, when the Delta flight landed just before 1:00 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.
Here’s the video, in which she calls the flight attendant a “f*cking f*aggot:”
Apparently the French couple decided not to press charges, since they were on holiday and didn’t want the hassle:
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.
