Azealia Banks Calls 'Harlem Shake' Artist a Gay Slur, Reignites Beef With Perez Hilton

Azealia Banks Calls 'Harlem Shake' Artist a Gay Slur, Reignites Beef With Perez Hilton

FEBRUARY 15, 2013 | 10:45AM EST

Azealia Banks reignited her Twitter beef with blogger Perez Hilton -- after starting a new one with "Harlem Shake" musician Baauer -- on Thursday night by calling each the gay slur that got the outspoken rapper into trouble last month.

Banks, who started off the year by branding Hilton a "messy faggot," initially took to Twitter to respond to Baauer, who tried to block her remix of his surprise hit "Harlem Shake." She responded to the Mad Decent artist by calling him a "pussy" and stating that he doesnt "belong in hip-hop."

After musician Brillz wrote that they were "too busy making tunes for u to steal tho," the Harlem native fired back, "you guys are all fagots May you drown in faggotry."

It was then that Hilton jumped into the ring, writing, "Classy as always! How does it feel to be better known for all your trash-talking than your music, Azealia? #TeamBauuer." After going back and forth, she wrote an unpublishable dig at Hilton that included the word "faggot" and later followed with the homophobic epithet once more.

Banks, who came under fire from GLAAD in early January, ended her Twitter rampage with a few tweets addressing those who were offended by her using the word. "Here we go again. Everyone pretending to be so shocked and moved by the word faggot," she wrote. "It's like society is so bored with itself it needs to hold on to these outdated rules of what you can say and cannot say. Why has society accepted 'nigger' As a colloquialism ... But will not accept 'faggot'? Everyones always acting like its fucking 1905 in this bitch."

The Interscope signee is currently prepping the release of her oft-delayed full-length debut "Broke With Expensive Taste," which is currently without a release date.

The Harlem Shake is over 3 years old. The internet is really really really behind on that dance.

I don't understand why it is suddenly popular. Could is be another sign of whites co-opting something that Black folk have known about and stopped using for years?

by Anonymousreply 102/15/2013

OK, I'm done with her.

212 was awesome, but she hasn't done a fucking thing since that doesn't involved stealing someone else's shit, and she's a dumb idiot if she thinks using the word "faggot" is OK.

You're a dumbass. How many times does someone have to say "faggot" before you get the hint that they don't like you? You should have been done with her after the first "strike".

And please - this bitch is not lesbian or bi. She's just one of those faux-bi hos who thinks pretending to be bi makes them edgy and cool.

Once she got away with it the first time it opened up the doors for her to use it again and again. Azealia Banks is an anti-gay bigot. No doubt that word has been a frequently word in her vocabulary for a long time. It was only a matter of time before we all knew. And to think she was promoted on gay websites.

Translation: Bitch is looking for another song to steal.

212 was lifted from a Lazy Jay song. He ended up letting her use it for a piece of the pie.

In another song she swiped a backing track. That guy shut a bitch down and she had to withdraw the single release.

I realize that rap takes samples and makes them something else - that's not the issue. The issue is that she's been bold at doing it without permission.

R41, it's interesting how you don't F&F R37. In another thread someone said that there is no such thing as a gay community but rather there are gay communities. He/She is right, and this board proves that point over and over again. Also, you have a very warped idea about how the F&F function works.

"Why has society accepted 'nigger' As a colloquialism ... But will not accept 'faggot'?"

Well 'nigger' is generally only acceptable when said by a black person. And it makes sense, too - as a general rule, a black person using this word is not going to be using it in a racist manner. She's not a camp gay man so she cannot use faggot. 212 was fabulous but she seems like a dickhead otherwise
