Watch: Azealia Banks throws violent tantrum on plane, calls flight attendant ‘fucking faggot’

Azealia Banks reportedly spat at and punched a man in his face.

Azealia Banks has been caught on camera using an anti-gay slur in a violent on-plane tantrum.

The 24-year-old rapper, who has a history of homophobia, called a flight attendant a ‘fucking faggot’ on a Delta flight from New York to Los Angeles on Monday night (21 September).

A passenger sitting next to Banks told TMZ that as soon as the plane landed, she headed straight for the exit – but a French couple pulling their luggage from the overhead bin blocked her way.

The eyewitness said Banks tried to squeeze past but the man put his hand out to stop her.

This is when the rapper reportedly ‘went nuts,’ spat at and punched him in the face and clawed at his shirt.

A flight attendant then grabbed Banks’ bag and told her to calm down.

Banks can be heard in the video screaming ‘Give me my bag!’ over and over before yelling ‘fucking faggot’ at the attendant.

The co-pilot then says the police have been called and Banks runs off the plane.

Police caught up with the rapper at baggage collection but the couple decided not to press charges.

Banks later accused the man of hitting her on Twitter.

‘Ok so I get hit in the face by a man and no one cares. The only hear what I called the man who was blocking my exit,’ she wrote in a since-deleted tweet.

‘I don’t care. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I don’t tolerate bitch assness and I don’t tolerate men putting their hands on me.’

The rapper brushed off accusations of homophobia and said the incident would never had happened had she been white:
