Azealia Banks charged with assaulting (biting?) security guard
Azealia Banks has been charged with assaulting a security guard at a nightclub who alleges that the rapper bit her on the breast.
Detective Annette Shelton says she rapper is accused of assault, disorderly conduct and second degree harassment.
Banks was allegedly being escorted out of the Up & Down nightclub in New York’s Meatpacking district when she punched the 28-year-old bouncer.
Detective Shelton says the rapper is also accused of biting the woman on the breast.
The 212 rapper, who has repeatedly dismissed claims she is anti-gay in the past, was caught on camera branding a flight attendant a “f**king faggot” during an on-flight meltdown.
In the past when she was challenged on her views, she claimed: “even if i am a homophobe… so wat? [sic] i still make more $ than u”.
She previously defended using the word ‘faggot’, claiming it is not a gay slur and just means “a man who hates women”.
Banks insisted: You can be gay or straight. You can be a straight faggot… Faggots are men who want to bring women down, fuck with their heads, control them.”
Banks has also claimed previously that it is impossible for her to be homophobic, because she is bisexual.
She wrote: “Why do gay men think everything I post about being gay is about them?! GIRLS ARE GAY TOO. I LIKE VAGINAS.
“For f**k’s sake, just give the Azealia banks is a homophobe thing a rest because I’m not. I have a transgender sibling. My whole life is gay.
“All of my friends are gay, I am bisexual…. So please… Stop.”
