Azealia Banks was having a really bad day. On Monday (March 28), the Harlem rapper lashed out at reporters after leaving court to face charges she attacked a security guard at a Chelsea-area nightclub.

According to the New York Post‘s Page Six, the 24-year-old artist repeatedly yelled “F—–s!” at the press, smacked one of the photographer’s camera lens, and then tried to grab another’s shutterbug’s camera.

“That’s assault! That’s assault! You want me to report you to the police?” yelled the offended cameraman.

But Banks had no f—s to give. The “212” rapper pushed the media out the way and jumped into her awaiting SUV and shouted back, “Suck my d—, f—–s!”​

Banks was appearing in court today regarding her assault case were she allegedly took a bite out of a female security guard’s breast who booted her out of a New York nightclub. According to police, Banks was trying to enter the club without a hand stamp and when she was confronted, the rapper went berserk and allegedly spit at the female bouncer and tried to assault her.

Banks was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault, harassment and disorderly conduct.

We don’t have a clue of what happened at the hearing but it must have pissed Banks off for her to go H.A.M. on the paparazzi.

Banks’ attorneys had no comment on the matter.
