US rapper Azealia Banks,24, allegedly attacked a passenger before calling a Delta flight attendant a “f—king f——t” while trying to run off her just-landed JFK plane.
According to TMZ, the drama began when the Harlem native attempted to dash off her red-eye flight the moment it touched down in New York. A French couple was sitting three rows in front of Azealia, blocking her fast escape.
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.
