Azealia Banks has emotional breakdown after allegedly being ‘treated like an animal’ on flight to Dublin
Isa Terli/Anadolu Agency/Getty ImagesAzealia Banks‘ recent travels to the U.K. were upended after the rapper allegedly engaged in a spat with an airline employee. Monday morning, Banks took to Instagram to share an emotional plea with fans regarding the ordeal.
“It’s like every time I come into the U.K. there’s always some f****** s*** with these airline people. They’re always starting s*** with me,” a tearful Banks explained via her Instagram story.
According to the Fantasea star, while en route to Dublin from London on an Aer Lingus flight, she was questioned by an airline employee about her passport. Banks went on to say that when she couldn’t answer the flight attendant’s question, the woman went back a few rows and starting “staring” at her.
The rapper then claimed that the flight attendant went to the captain and “lied,” saying that Banks had threatened to “sort her out” for staring.
The Harlem-bred artist then went on to say that security began to surround her on the flight, to chastise her “like a f****** animal.”
Banks revealed that she decided to leave the plane and informed fans that she was able to book a different flight, so she could make it to her Dublin show later that night.
“I get off the plane. I’ve worked too hard in my life to be cornered by some ugly Irish b****,” she continued.
“They are ugly Irish women here.”
This is not the first time that Banks has gotten into trouble on a plane. In 2015, she was caught on video spewing derogatory epithets at a flight attendant after a physical encounter with other passengers.
