Azealia Banks Defends Gay Slur, Calls 'glaad' 'bulls**t'
Azealia Banks has landed herself in a fair amount of trouble since having a Twitter account. She’s had sharp words for Jim Jones, Kreayshawn, T.I, Lil Kim, Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Diplo, Baauer… this list continues. However, what was seen as general banter became more serious when Perez Hilton got involved in a Twitter war of words between Azealia and Angel Haze. Perez defended Angel, for Azealia to reply calling him a ‘f****t’ – repeatedly…
The ‘212’ star got slammed for the comment, but recently spoke about the incident to themusic.com.au. "F**k being a f*ggot, f**k being a n***er. F**k being whatever. There are such bigger problems... and then you've got organisations like GLAAD, which are f**king complete bulls**t.”
Speaking of the organisation that supports gay and lesbian citizens, she continued: "I mean let's look at it, it's gay and lesbian alliance against defamation, or whatever... That's what it stands for, right? I mean would you agree that homosexuals, and the homosexual community, have bigger problems than the word f*ggot, you know what I mean?"
Banks went on to say she is bisexual herself; it is the media who have made her appear homophobic: "I have sex with men and women, do I have to take a picture of me licking a f**king p***y? What the f**k! It doesn't make any sense.
"It's so stupid. It's so stupid and it's so evil. And it's just like this stupid f**king media s**t, you know what I mean? It's the media s**t. And this is why I go about myself the way I go about myself, and I do whatever the f**k I want.
"If the media is going to build me up to tear me down, you motherf**kers are not going to tear me down."
Meanwhile, Azealia is continuing her battle with Baauer. The producer blocked her version of his infamous instrumental 'Harlem Shake', adding that he thought it was 'so-so'. Azealia took to Tumblr to post an email (below) she allegedly received from the Brooklyn-bred musician, alongside the caption: “I don’t remember you saying the verse was so-so.”
