Azealia Banks was nearly arrested on Monday after getting into a fight with a French couple and a flight attendant while on a flight from New York to Los Angeles.
According to an eyewitness, the rapper rushed towards the exit when the Delta plane landed, but was slowed down by a French couple ahead of her, who were taking off their luggage from the overhead bin.
Banks tried to pass the couple, but the French man blocked her by putting out his hand. That was where she went bonkers, reportedly spitting in the man’s face, hitting his face and clawing his shirt.
A flight attendant came over, took her bag and tried to calm things down … but as the video below shows, he and Banks ended up fighting over the bag, with Banks calling him a ‘f***ing f***ot.’
Later on, a co-pilot came out and informed Banks that police have been called. That was when she ran out from the plane … but was apprehended at the baggage area. She was not arrested because the French couple did not want to start filing criminal complaints while on vacation.
Meanwhile, Banks claims the French man hit her in the face, and she reacted the way she did because ‘I don’t tolerate bitchassness and I don’t tolerate men putting their hands on me.’
She also used the buzz the news generated to promote her new album on Twitter.
