Azealia Banks LOST IT!!!

Ms Banks had a major meltdown while deplaning at LAX Airport early Tuesday, calling a flight attendant a homophobic slur.

The 24-year-old rapper — who identifies as bisexual — was trying to quickly exit the Delta flight, which originated in New York, after it landed in Los Angeles just before 1 a.m., but a French couple apparently blocked her exit as they were pulling their luggage from an overhead bin, according to a TMZ report.

An eyewitness explained that Banks tried to bypass the couple, but the man extended his hand to stop her, which apparently caused the songwriter to snap.

A flight attendant grabbed the “212” rapper’s bag in an effort to calm her, but this only fueled her fire, with her eventually calling him a “f—ing f—-t” as she played tug-of-war with the suitcase.

Police met Banks at baggage claim, but the couple chose not to press charges.

According to the report, Banks insisted the Frenchman made contact with her face during the altercation, adding, “I don’t tolerate bitchassness and I don’t tolerate men putting their hands on me.”

Following the incident, Banks posted a photo of herself smiling in the first class cabinof a different aircraft Tuesday afternoon alongside the caption, “Here’s me on a plane waiting for another bitch ass flight attendant to try me. #AzealiaBanks #Brokewithexpensivetaste.”

Earlier this year, the native New Yorker defended her use of the hateful slur on Sirius XM radio.

“The word f—-t came to me from my mother and it was never a thing of like a guy being gay, it was always just a man who hates women,” she said. “F—–s are men who just want to bring women down.”
