Azealia Banks


You don't have to be famous to feud with Azealia Banks!

The 24-year-old rapper encountered some travel troubles early Tuesday morning when her flight landed at LAX. In a passenger-shot video obtained by TMZ, Azealia can be seen and heard getting into a verbal altercation with a couple in the aisle. When a male flight attendant attempts to intervene, Azealia demands he give her her bags and calls the employee a "f--king f----t."

A spokesperson for the LAX Police confirmed to E! News that they were called in at 12:50 a.m. regarding a disorderly female passenger on a Delta Air Lines flight. Police spoke to witnesses and those involved in the incident, but because the man and woman involved in the verbal altercation refused to press charges, the disruptive passenger was released.

Also, because no charges were pressed, police would not confirm if the woman was Azealia. The rapper herself, however, had no problem addressing the incident on Twitter.

She began by posting a picture of herself "on a plane waiting for another bitch ass flight attendant to try me." She also denied being homophobic, despite her earlier use of the word "f----t" in TMZ's video. "I am bisexual," she wrote. "my brother is trans. My employees are all gay men. Nothing else to say."

Azealia actually did have something else to say, though. She re-tweeted a fan slamming the media's "inaccurate reporting of azealia's situation today." She also suggested race played a factor in the incident, tweeting, "Cause yall KNOW, that they would've politely handed a white woman her bags and a spritzer. #whatever"

"But who cares!," she wrote, asking fans in the same tweet to download her single from iTunes.

E! News reached out to Azealia's rep for comment but did not receive an immediate response.
