Azealia Banks attacks ‘thief’ Beyonce over Lemonade, calls her ‘anti-feminist’

Rapper Azealia Banks has attacked Beyonce over her new album ‘Lemonade’ calling her “anti-feminist”, a “poacher” and a “thief”.

The 212 star took to Twitter and Periscope to criticise Beyonce over her new release, which she unveiled on HBO late last week.

Banks said the Destiny’s Child star was perpetuating the “heartbroken black female narrative”, calling her “stupid” for “crying over a man”.

In later tweets, she accused the star of stealing ideas from other artists, calling her a “poacher” and a “thief”.

All of this comes despite Banks praising the release at first.

She went on to tweet that “feminism has nothing to do with black women”.

Banks has been heavily criticised for her homophobic actions in the past. She was first criticised in 2013 when she told entertainment blogger Perez Hilton that he was a “messy faggot” who should kill himself.

Later she defended her comments, arguing that gay men are misogynistic and that if gay men can say ‘bitch’ then she should be able to say ‘faggot’.

Visage has also recently hit out at her former Celebrity Big Brother housemate Katie Hopkins, seemingly revoking Hopkins self proclaimed ‘gay icon’ status due to her views on Muslims.

Banks again criticised for a homophobic outburst against a flight attendant, where she was caught on video calling him a “f***ing faggot”.

In response to the criticism the rapper went on a bizare and vile rant on Instagram where she said she wanted to pepper spray a gay man in the face.

She subsequently labelled the LGBT community the ‘gay white KKK’.
