Azealia Banks has gone on yet another homophobic rant – claiming she wants to “spray a gay man in the face with pepper spray”.

The 212 rapper, who has repeatedly dismissed claims she is anti-gay in the past, was caught on camera branding a flight attendant a “f**king faggot” during an on-flight meltdown.

Amid the controversy, the rapper has not sought to smooth over relations with her gay fanbase, going on a bizarre and vile rant on Instagram.

Responding to a self-pitying post from the star reacting to the coverage, a fan wrote: “Imagine the pain young gay fans feel when they hear the vile things you say @azealiabanks.”

However, Banks hit back: “oh well imagine how I wanna spray a gay man in the face with pepper spray everytime he calls me a bitch a slut or a hoe. Kiss my ass. Goodnight.””

When the fan challenged her ‘evil’ comment, she added: “Keep f**king with me if you f**king want to. One day your hemmroids [sic] are going to burst and you’ll bleed to death bitch.'”

In a since-deleted post, she continued: “Yea keep trolling for d**k on grindr. You’ll be murdered and stuffed under a truck somewhere soon.”

The rapper has used gay slurs on a number of occasions, regularly branding gay men “faggots” on social media.

In the past when she was challenged on her views, she claimed: “even if i am a homophobe… so wat? [sic] i still make more $ than u”.

She previously defended using the word ‘faggot’, claiming it is not a gay slur and just means “a man who hates women”.

Banks insisted: You can be gay or straight. You can be a straight faggot… Faggots are men who want to bring women down, fuck with their heads, control them.”

Banks has also claimed previously that it is impossible for her to be homophobic, because she is bisexual.

She wrote: “Why do gay men think everything I post about being gay is about them?! GIRLS ARE GAY TOO. I LIKE VAGINAS.

“For f**k’s sake, just give the Azealia banks is a homophobe thing a rest because I’m not. I have a transgender sibling. My whole life is gay.

“All of my friends are gay, I am bisexual…. So please… Stop.”
