Azealia Banks is not a afraid to stir up some bad publicity after she calls Perez Hilton a faggot for the second time.
Twitter users were quick to slam Banks for the use of the anti-gay insult, who responded
Twitter users were quick to criticise Banks for her use of the homophobic slur, but the star argued that she doesn’t use it within that context.
“Here we go again. Everyone pretending to be so shocked and moved by the word faggot,”
“It’s like society is so bored with itself it needs to hold on to these outdated rules of what you can say and cannot say.
“Why has society accepted ‘nigger’ As a colloquialism … But will not accept ‘faggot’?”
The 212 singer then went on to say,
“Everyones always acting like its f**king 1905 in this bitch. Faggot means coward, liar, backstabber……. Energy stealer, blood sucker.
“Perez tries to get every gay person all riled up when the only faggot I see …….. is him.”
Banks, who is openly bisexual, confirmed recently that her debut single ‘Yung Rapunxel’ has been delayed by her label Interscope, Universal.
