Azealia Banks Slams Perez Hilton with Homophobic Slur, Tells Blogger to Kill Himself
The Justin Bieber pot photos are not the only scandal making headlines this weekend.
Azealia Banks has created quite the stir on Twitter due to her feud with Perez Hilton, which stems from a post on the blogger’s site about a “beef” between Banks and artist Angel Haze.
In response, Banks Tweeted:
“@PerezHilton does your butthole whistle? Like is your butthole so stretched and raggedy the air whistles when you move?”
After Perez shot back with “some of your music is cute, but your attention-seeking ways are pathetic and hurtful. You drag while others choose to uplift,” Banks took the rivalry even further, writing:
“omg u should just kill yourself… Like for real. lol what a messy f****t you are.”
As you might expect, this word choice resulted in major backlash against Banks, who didn’t back down in her initial reply to the firestorm.
“A f****t is not a homosexual male,” she Tweeted. “A f****t is any male who acts like a female. There’s a BIG difference. If u listen to my music and are not offended by the word n***a…. We’re not gonna go here with this f****t s**t… We’re just not. Lol.”
But Banks finally acquiesced to the criticism, at least somewhat, ending her portion of the back-and-forth for now with:
“My most sincere apologies to anyone who was indirectly offended by my foul language. Not sorry for Perez tho. Lol.”
