'Y'all Country Is Nuts': Citing Racism, U.S. Rapper Azealia Banks Vows to 'Never Ever Ever' Visit Israel Again
Banks went on a tweetstorm about the racism and rudeness she says she experienced while in Israel for her concert in Tel Aviv
American rapper Azealia Banks vowed on Wednesday never to visit Israel again, claiming she encountered racism while in the country for her show in Tel Aviv on Monday.
Banks said she was treated badly on account of her skin color on multiple occasions, claiming that a rabbi sitting next to her on the plane offered her money for sex, and that service vendors in Tel Aviv treated her badly because shes black. She also said she was held up at Ben-Gurion International Airport because of her skin color.
I will never ever ever ever ever go to Israel again. I love my fans but yall gonna have to fly out to come see me because yall country is nuts, Banks tweeted. ..........
...No some old Jewish lady on my el al flight screamed at me in front of the whole plane for trying to put my bag where hers was. It was so racist I sat in my seat and cried, another alleged....
She also claims to have been held up at the airport upon her arrival because her passport was in ratty condition. While in Israel, she tweeted complaints about Israelis and Tel Aviv that she later deleted.
In addition, she claims her suitcase got lost due to racism. How much yall wanna bet these racists at this airline lost my bag on pudpose, she tweeted. Why are these people like this? I dont understand... the amount of times Ive been purposefully coughed on, stepped on, cut in line is tooooo much."

Her suitcase got lost due to racism? That one takes the prize. Next she’ll complain they served her coffee black with no cream because of racism.
Israelis didn’t like her “music”; call them racist. Got it, Jew hater.
Maybe she is lying about everything. She probably took a private jet.
She shouldn’t visit the apartheid Israel.
Go to South Africa.
This is just paranoia.
You are in busy crowded place with people in a hurry to get somewhere.
You are going to have rood careless people. Everyone around you is getting stepped on, coughed on and bumped in to.
These celebrities get used to being catered to and treated like royalty. They get somewhere where they are not as well known and when they are treated like everyone else it is shocking that they are treated rudely just like everyone else.
Welcome to life in the big city Azealia
“on the plane, claims she was offered money for sex?”
for free maybe, for buy waste my time
Judging by her own words, she’s rude. I doubt she was treated any differently than anyone else until she spouted off.
Ebonics is ignorant and crude — when is she going to speak English?
She’s guilty of cultural appropriation. But, what culture?
What does she mean by “these people”?
Having spent a considerable time in Israel, and being a darker shade of green, I can attest that there is a small segment (Hasidim) of the Jewish population who are and can be very bigoted, racist, rude , etc... but, the overall majority of the people are warm and friendly, and would literally give you the shirt off their back, invite you into their homes to share ffood and drink, invite you to weddings, birthdays, etc, etc.
This snowflake needs to grow a thicker skin.
"On my flight back I sat next to a rabbi who taught me some numerology then asked if Id have sex with him for money... away from the community"
A Jewis Rabbi from Israel solicited her for sex? In public?
Actually, Leo is probably more fun.
