It looks as though RZA is siding with actor Russell Crowe when it comes to the incident on Sunday night, where Azealia Banks claims Crowe called her n–ger, spat on her and choked her.
In an interview with TMZ, RZA did say Crowe spat at Banks, but it missed her, but he also went on to say she was acting erratic and threatened to cut someone with a wine glass.
RZA also posted a Facebook post in regards to the event:
“Before the night is over Azealia is insulting half the room she becomes loud and obnoxious.
There was nothing funny about her behavior. I felt a little embarrassed because she was my guest.
Still verbal abuse can be tolerated but when it goes physical…
Azealia threaten to cut a girl in the face with a glass, then actually grabs a glass and physically attacks for no logical reason.
Russell blocked the attack and expelled her from the suite.
Seeing is believing and I saw her behave as an obnoxious erratic individual and in the circles I frequent this was unprecedented. I was totally puzzles by her and thought maybe meds or booze or something had her zoned out.
Nevertheless I made sure she got home safe.
THIS IS NOT A RACE OR GENDER ISSUE”
Banks offered her own rebuttal on Facebook, and says she’s still pressing charges against Crowe:
“regardless, you need to have the respect and decency to have someone properly escorted out. Grabbing them by the neck, calling them nigger and tossing them out is not the look. NOR Is spitting an acceptable form of self-defense. I will be moving forward with Pressing charges.
Thanks so much to all of the people who remained positive and optimistic in this matter. I stated numerous times that all I wanted was a moment to chat this over with Russell and come to a mutual understanding of what happened that night, but his team immediately rushed to TMZ, thinking they were beating me to something.
This has been super unfortunate for all parties involved.
One would think that having invested money ( 7 million dollars) and effort into making a movie with me, ones own investment would be most important.
But sometime, the OG’s are that starved for this played out illusion of being a part of the illuminati (or whatever the fuck) that they will Shit where they eat. Just to make sure they get to keep getting invited on boat parties and dumb shit.”
What I want to know, is what type of grown person spits at someone?
