Azealia Banks offended many people when she used a horrible homophobic slur to insult a flight attendant on Sept. 22! The singer received a ton of backlash from fans and Twitter users alike, even after she tried to justify her usage of the slur.
Azealia Banks, 24, lost a few fans after a video showed the singer calling a flight attendant a ‘f–king f–ot’ after a long flight on Sept. 22. Not only were Twitter users furious when they saw the video, they also had a lot to say about the whole ordeal. Read on to see their angry tweets.
After all the backlash Azealia was receiving for her poor choice of words, you would think that she would apologize for her homophobic insult. Instead, the 24-year-old decided to justify her actions. Azealia tweeted after the incident, “I am bisexual. my brother is trans. My employees are all gay men. . Nothing else to say.” Needless to say, Twitter users had a response for her. Not to mention the singer lost a few fans in the process. Read their responses below.

I used to go SO HARD for Azealia Banks. Now, I've realized she refuses to get out of her own way. I will not defend her actions anymore.

Azealia’s Plane Meltdown: What Caused The Singer To Go Ballistic
Azealia was in a rush to get off of the plane after the Delta flight landed at LAX before 1 a.m. The rapper, who had been sitting in the plane’s sixth row, darted toward the doors, a source told TMZ. A French couple three rows ahead of her blocked her way while they were grabbing their luggage, and when Azealia reportedly tried to squeeze past them, the man put his hand out.
That is when Azealia reportedly lost it. The 24-year-old allegedly spit in the man’s face, according to the eyewitness. The flight attendant then allegedly got involved, grabbing Azealia’s bag which began a bag tug-of-war. At that point, the video begins, and we see Azealia swear at the flight attendant before calling him a “f–king f—ot.” How horrible.
HollywoodLifers, were you surprised by Azealia’s behavior?
