American rapper Azealia Banks defends outrageous homophobic language against a Delta airline steward, by claiming that she’s not homophobic because she has gay employees.

Taking to Twitter the “212” rapper defended her words by saying that her employees were gay, her brother was trans and herself bisexual.
“I am bisexual. my brother is trans. My employees are all gay men. . Nothing else to say.
“I only OWE an apology to my fans. My true true ride or die fans. The rest of yall can pick up a rock and suck on it !!
“And to be quite honest IM [sic) REALLY tired of the world trying to police the way black women should or shouldn’t express themselves.”
