Azealia Banks has accused airline crew of racially profiling and hitting her during a flight from Sweden to LA after a passenger ‘claimed she had sex’ on the plane.

The rap star, 28, posted a video on her Instagram account on Monday night, which she later deleted, showing a woman and a member of Scandinavian Airlines crew.

She can be heard saying ‘I’m on the SAS flight and this one lady right here thinks me and my boyfriend were having sex on the plane so she tried to racially profile me.’

As the woman puts her hand towards Banks’ phone to cover the camera, a flight attendant leans in and the musician accuses her of hitting her.  

She says, ‘you just hit me’ as the woman stays calm and tries to speak to Banks before saying ‘this lady just hit me on the f*****g flight.’

The airline confirmed there had been an incident on the flight where a ‘passenger has behaved very inappropriately towards other passengers and our staff on board.’

They told Swedish site Aftonbladet: ‘The police and the FBI were called in when the plane landed.’ 

Banks’ video was later shared on Twitter and another person who was on the flight responded.

He said: ‘I was on that flight. She was the problem. There was no profiling she was extremely disruptive and disrespectful to the staff and other passengers. 

‘My son was will (sic) and we had to wait to get him off the plane cuz she was being such a brat.’ 

Banks also posted on her Instagram story yesterday, making comments about ‘old white people’ who ‘always come for me’.

In January Banks launched an extraordinary tearful rant at Aer Lingus staff after a row with a stewardess before a flight from Gatwick to Dublin.  

She called Irish women ‘ugly’ and used foul-mouthed racial slurs during the bizarre tirade which she shared on her Instagram story.

The musician removed herself from a morning flight to Dublin, ahead of her sold-out gig at The Academy in the Irish capital on Tuesday.

A fellow passenger said Banks turned to the hostess and said, ‘Are you staring at me…’? Why are you staring at me? I didn’t fill out an Air Lingus form to be stared at.’

‘The hostess was being quite confrontational. She said to her, ‘I need to know if you are going to cause more trouble on this flight?

‘If someone’s rude to a stewardess, it is something we have to ask. It’s protocol.’
