Azealia Banks Uses Homophobic Slur Again

The rapper goes on a rant over her use of the (other) F word.

Published February 15, 2013

Harlem MC Azealia Banks continues to make more noise outside of the booth, rather than in it. This time the feisty femcee has reigniting her feud with gossip blogger Perez Hilton and she was back to using an unsavory slur to describe him.

Banks threw the dreaded “F-word” at Hilton again this morning (February 15) after he added his two cents to the beef brewing between Banks and producer Baauer over an unauthorized remix Banks made of Baauer’s hit record “Harlem Shake.”

“You’re a p****, you don’t belong in hip hop,” said Banks via her Twitter after Baauer had her remix taken offline. Hilton jumped in to Baauer’s aid, tweeting, “Classy as always! How does it feel to be better known for all your trash-talking than your music, Azealia? #TeamBauuer.”

The "212" rapper wasted no time in firing back at her old foe. “I wouldn't even let you smell my p**** you evil f*****,” she said, prompting Hilton to reply, “Ugh. There you go again with the F word. Showing your true colors.”

In January, Banks made headlines for calling Hilton the homophobic slur in a tweet after the openly gay blogger sided with Banks’ rival Angel Haze during the female rappers’ recent social media spat.

Much like she did after facing a firestorm of criticism last month, Azealia turned her attention from her beefs with Baauer and Hilton to take issue with what she sees as a societal double standard. “Why has society accepted "n*****" As a colloquialism ... But will not accept "f*****?” she asked her followers.
