Rapper Azealia Banks is still getting attention for all the wrong reasons. Uproxx reports that the controversial artist has gone on yet again another homophobic meltdown — this time on social media for millions of people to see it. Not only did she spit out a series of anti-gay slurs, she also made some incredibly violent comments that some media sources are reporting as “threats.”
Banks has long been acknowledged as a “diva” type personality, but is better known for engaging in social media flamewars with fans and other artists in the entertainment industry. She’s also been known to make homophobic slurs — including the time she referred to Perez Hilton as a “messy fa**ot.”
In her most recent meltdown, Azealia Banks had just made a post to her Instagram account of a meme that makes frequent rounds on other social media sites like Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter. However, her caption is what initiated her meltdown.
“I have never felt the pain of not being white the way I’ve felt it since I’ve been a public figure/part of this entertainment industry.”
Her comment attracted a critical comment from one of her Instagram followers, who called out her use of homophobic slurs.
“Imagine the pain young gay fans feel when they hear the vile things you say.”
The comment was not met with kindness, to say the least. This is when the troubled rapper and R&B singer went on a violence-drenched tirade against homosexuals.
“Oh well imagine how I wanna spray a gay man in the face with pepper spray everytime [sic] he calls me a b***h a slut or a hoe. Kiss my a**. Goodnight.”
“Yea keep trolling for d**k on grindr. You’ll be murdered and stuffed under a truck somewhere soon.”
Those are just a few of the horrifying comments Banks made in retaliation against what some could consider constructive criticism in regards to homophobia and racism in the United States. The post is still up on Instagram, where it has attracted more than 7,700 likes and more than 1,000 comments. Many of the comments appear to express anger and shock toward Banks. Other comments include her loyal fans who have jumped to her defense via their keyboards.
This latest homophobic meltdown comes on the heels of reports that Azealia Banks threw a similar tantrum while aboard a flight. While aboard a Delta Airlines flight from New York to Los Angeles, Azealia reportedly went off on a male flight attendant, referring to him as a “f*****g fa**ot.” She has also refused to apologize for the incident.
