New York rapper Azealia Banks allegedly fell victim to racism and physical assault this past weekend at the hands of high-profile celebrity Russell Crowe.

Banks revealed what happened in a now-deleted Facebook post.

Some reports claim an Azealia outburst and nasty speech ultimately sparked the incident.

According to eyewitness accounts the trouble started when Azealia laughed out loud at Russell’s music selection, and then called him and at least one other guest, “boring white men.” We’re told a female guest jumped to Russell’s defense and suggested Banks pipe down. We’re told Azealia reached for her glass, cocked it back … and that’s when Russell had enough — he grabbed her in a bear hug and carried her out of the suite. He then called hotel security guards who removed Azealia from the grounds. (TMZ)

Reports claim Banks attended the event as a guest of hip-hop artist RZA.
