  1. Wau, she’s brave.. if not very smart~

      What’s brave about it? In the old days of Newsgroups and Usenet she would have been dismissed as a Troll! “Don’t Feed the Trolls!”

        Sometimes trolls get it right, whether they mean to or not. As a gay man I’ve thought for many years Perez Hilton is exactly what Azealia Banks says he is.

  2. What an utter, ignorant idiot. Just because you decide to assign a different meaning to a commonly used slur in your own head, don’t expect the rest of the world to know what you mean. We’re not effing psychic. To the rest of us, faggot is a gay slur, and so using it is just insulting.

    In all honesty, I smell bullshit on the part of Ms Banks. She knows what it means, she’s just making crap up to make it look like she’s innocent and the rest of us are just over-sensitive.

  3. I wonder if black bigots don’t mind being called the ‘N’ word.

    Of course they’d mind. They’d be screaming with fury, probably much more than we do when the ‘F’ word is used to describe us! Such hypocrites.

    1. “Oh no, it’s not a slur against black people. ‘N’ means ‘lazy, criminal, ugly, smelly, workshy, violent, drug addicted, etc'” You’d think someone who uses words for a living would have a bit more of a clue on how language works. Or maybe not, since all she has to do is rhyme “bag” with “fag” and she’s pretty much done.

      1. Wow. This site is full of uneducated trash. Well done Ben you must be proud

    She clearly saw how much publicity she got last time and is doing the same again to help her flagging career….a waste of space

  5. Just another example of being famous for being famous/notorious, rather than for any appreciable talent.

    1. Liam the God 15 Feb 2013, 4:27pm

      I think she must have some trolls of her own lurking around here, judging by the number of comments pointing out how ignorant she is being down-marked.

  6. Liam the God 15 Feb 2013, 4:07pm

    Stop giving this attention-seeking skank coverage! I wish someone would call her a stinking dyke n!gger to her face, JUST to see how she reacted! Seems she can dish it out, but can’t take it back.

    1. If I were as equally unintelligent and bigoted as her, I’d say that she’d react to someone calling her that by pulling out a loaded gun to fire at them or by setting her pimp onto them, or maybe she’d just eat them.

  7. Everyone on PinkNews needs to get off Perez Hilton’s dick. He started this one. Like the last one. Perez Hilton is nothing more than a twisted, manipulative, fat angry man in a skinny body. In other words, a messy faggot. That’s what Perez Hilton is. A messy faggot. How quick we are all to forget his usage of the word to will.i.am? How quick we are all to forget how Perez Hilton defended Paris Hilton when she said all gay men who use Grindr are digusting and all “probably have AIDS”? How quick we are all to forget how Perez started his “career” by slandering others and starting pathetic rumours? You all need to get off your high horses and start targeting your angry toward the real evil and nasty one: Perez Hilton. Azealia Banks is not homophobic. She is bisexual and her best friend is a gay man. I also wish PinkNews would report other celebrities using this word as much as Azealia Banks. Is Perez Hilton paying for PinkNews to report on her?

    1. The fact that it’s aimed at Perez Hilton is a side issue. I cannot stand the man myself, and think he’s an odious troll, even with this whole turning over a new leaf thing. But that’s not the point. The issue is she’s using a gay slur as an insult in a public space with impressionable followers. She’s basically saying it’s okay to call people faggots. And rather than apologise to the gay people she’s insulted who aren’t Perez Hilton, she’s trying to justify the use of faggot as being okay. It really, really isn’t.

    ANYway, Perez should probably have kept out of the argument, BUT just for the benefit of the Mentally Retarded and plagerising Azelia Banks here’s the definition of the slang word “Faggot” (assuming she has the intelligence to be able to read long words…)

    1. PantoHorse 15 Feb 2013, 4:27pm

      “mentally retarded”??

      Not cool Liam, not cool.

      1. Liam the God 15 Feb 2013, 4:31pm

        See this face? This is my “Bothered” face. Insulting people deserve to be insulted. Would you have preferred me to call her a Faggot? A lack of thought on her part suggests her emotional development has been stunted, so in that context she has had her Mental Development Retarded. I don’t try to be cool; just honest.

        1. Exactly Liam, and Perez Hilton deserved to be insulted too. Azealia Banks, again, handed his faggot ass to him on a plate. Perez Hilton is nothing more than a messy faggot

          1. Liam the God 15 Feb 2013, 5:15pm

            Aren’t you supposed to be on the Daily Mail webshite?

  9. Liam the God 15 Feb 2013, 4:24pm

    Who knew the word “Faggot” had so many other meanings? I don’t see it referring to “Liars and Backstabbers”, mind you.

    Whatever meaning is assigned to it, it’s still a really rather vulgar and repulsive word. Just as the word “nigger”, whether it’s meant to mean friend or whatever, it’s just unattractive.

  11. I like how alll these articles fail to mention three things: Perez Hilton uses that word himself as an insulted along with other slurs, azealia banks is herself queer ( though she shouldn’t be using that word) and three, azealia banks is a massive Transphobic asshole

  12. Of course her label didn’t disconnect! As the old saying goes, “Even bad publicity is STILL publicity!”

      @Nigel…
      …Yet….!

  13. Spanner1960 15 Feb 2013, 5:49pm

    To use the same analogy, and quote Chris Rock, “There are black people and there are niggers.”

    I know which category this miserable bitch belongs in.

    1. And Chris Rock is twat, just like you Spanner.

    2. Using Chris Rock as a disguise for your own racist thinking – gimme a break! Lol.

  14. I have no idea who this crazy b1tch is, but Perez is a complete w@nk. He embodies just about every negative gay stereotype.

    1. ...Paddyswurds 19 Feb 2013, 12:47pm

      …however the problem Gay people have is not with Hilton or that she abused him. Our problem is with her ready use of the Fag*ot word, just as she probably would react to the N****r word…. Then again perhaps she wouldn’t react in the same way… as her lack of intelligence and Intellect leaves her bereft of rational thought processes………

  15. That There Other David 15 Feb 2013, 11:26pm

    What’s this about “old world attitudes” love? Here in the Old World a faggot is a meatball. It’s only over there in the Land of the Free™ that the word has been twisted into something vile.

    She’s tiresome, as is Hilton. I wish they’d just get a room, preferably one without any air in it.

  16. He is an Evil Faggot ! What telling the truth is wrong.

  17. Ild love for her to be refused entry if the ever visits the UK.

    1. Correction: Ild love for her to be refused entry if she ever visits the UK

      1. OMG relax people are not trying to flock to the UK, more like the US. Who care what she calls perez , first amendment rights she can say what she wants. Plus Perez is the biggest faggot that has ever lived, Id hang him. But its not kosher.

  18. Liam the God 16 Feb 2013, 2:02pm

    My last comment on this: In the UK that could be used for a prosecution (Robin Hood Airport, anyone?). If she said it in public in the UK that would be “Behaviour likely to cause a breach of the peace” at least.
    That’s it. On to the next story…

  19. ...Paddyswurds 19 Feb 2013, 12:28pm

    Another sad attempt to boost record sales a la last time when her record sales went from 2 a week to ten a week . An attempt to stay the inevitable drop from her record label which cannot come soon enough. She is as much a singer as my dog is when he whines if I leave him alone for ten minutes. A vile talentless harridan with some very deep seated issues against Gay people. Methinks she was rejected by a gay man sometime in her sorry ghetto past. I see the ghetto beckoning again for this neverbeen… … …. …..
