Azealia Banks rants on Twitter after airline meltdown

Los Angeles, Sep 24 (IANS) Rapper Azealia Banks didn’t seem to regret her use of homophobic slur when she went ballistic on a flight from New York to Los Angeles earlier this week.

The “Chasing time” hitmaker landed in hot water after being caught on camera hitting a fellow passenger, a French man, who blocked her exit as they pulled their luggage from the overhead bin.

When a male flight attendant tried to calm her down, the 24-year-old hip-hop star called him a “f***ing f***ot.”

The musician took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to defend her antics in a series of posts, reports

“I am bisexual. my brother is trans. My employees are all gay men. Nothing else to say,” she wrote on the micro-blogging website.

Minutes later, she followed it up with another tweet which read: “Cause yall KNOW, that they would’ve politely handed a white woman her bags and a spritzer. #whatever.”

In another tweet, she ranted: “If America is so concerned with derogatory language, why do I not see even a quarter of this outrage when I use the word ‘N***R’????”

She complained about the double standard people use to judge others’ choice of words, saying: “America picks and chooses when it likes to be offended. And THAT is a major part of American culture that HAS to change.”

Showing no remorse, she added, “I only OWE an apology to my fans. My true true ride or die fans. The rest of yall can pick up a rock and suck on it.”
