Rapper reignites feud with Perez Hilton: ‘You’re still a faggot, lol’

A rapper who last year had a long-standing Twitter feud with gay blogger Perez Hilton has reignited the fight, telling him: “You will always be a faggot.”

Last year the Azealia Banks was criticised after using the slur “faggot” on two separate occasions in an extended Twitter feud with Perez Hilton.

This week she took to Twitter to use the slur again against Hilton, saying: “you will always be a faggot. The men you want will never give you the same social regard a woman gets… you’re still a faggot tho. LOLOLOLOL.”

“Gay men be saying the most misogynist shit, but as soon as you call them a faggot they wanna get upset,” she said in another.

“Somebody gotta check these faggots man. I don’t give a fuck!! NO MAN Is going challenge my femininity. It’s not happening.”

In a final tweet, after accusing Hilton of discriminating based on disability, and saying it was “your fault you got called a faggot”, she said: “I feel discriminated against.”

Hilton claimed she had apologised, and warned her: “I’m more than happy being me. & don’t come around with your dick between your legs trying to apologize again. Won’t accept it.”

Each of Banks’ tweets was retweeted around 1,500 times.

Speaking to the Guardian last month, she said: “I don’t regret doing it, but I’ll never do it again, because I don’t care enough about the person to have the battle again and defend my use of the word faggot.

”A lot of gay men are way more misogynistic than straight men. The s**t they say about women behind their backs, it’s like, ‘Wow, oh my God!’ You can be a straight faggot, you can be a gay faggot. A faggot is anybody that hates women.”

She added: ”It’s like, y’all sing along to my words when I’m saying n***a and ****, but as soon as I call this one white man a faggot the whole world exploded.

“Listen, I didn’t say all gay men are faggots; I said Perez Hilton is a faggot, so don’t try and bring the rest of the gays down with your faggotry.”

In February last year, she also turned her attention to gay rights groups after receiving heavy criticism.

She said: “And then you’ve got organisations like GLAAD, which are fucking complete bulls**t…

“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 faggot, you know what I mean?”
