During her big sold-out show in Dublin, Azealia Banks made a reference to her earlier remark, targeting an Aer Lingus flight attendant, whom she bashed as a “f*cking ugly Irish b*tch”, and went even further, branding all Irish women “f*cking ugly” after an incident on the plane.
“I want to dedicate this to all the beautiful Irish women that are here”, the outspoken rap artist said as the crowd went wild, The Irish Times reported.
The musician recorded an expletive-laden Instagram story, claiming that she was treated like a “wild animal” on an Aer Lingus flight from London’s Gatwick Airport to Dublin.
According to the tearful rap star, the crew member asked her some questions, and when she failed to answer them the attendant “went a couple of seats over and was just, like, staring at me”.
“And I’m like ‘Girl, don’t stare at me. I didn’t fill out, like, your Aer Lingus work application’. She goes up to the captain of the plane and lies and says that I said ‘Don’t stare at me, I’ll sort you out’. I’m like what are you f*cking talking about? I’m from New York City, I don’t even say sh*t like that. They all just crowd around me and, like, chastise, like I’m some kind of f*cking wild animal”, she said.
Banks then decided to disembark the plane: “I’ve worked too hard in my life to be cornered by some f*cking ugly Irish b*tch. These f*cking ugly Irish women here”.
The airline issued a statement, confirming that two guests scheduled to fly from Gatwick to Dublin got off the plane prior to departure:
“The guests in question got off the plane safely of their own accord. Aer Lingus has a strict no-tolerance policy towards disruptive guest behaviour. The safety and security of our guests and crew remains our first priority”, the statement read.
Banks, who was banned from flying with the airline again, said that she was considering lodging a complaint against the company, calling the incident “evil and wicked”.
