Rapper Azealia Banks says she’ll call Perez Hilton a ‘faggot’ if she wants; It’s not ‘1905 in this bitch’

In early January, rapper and all around classy lady Azealia Banks made headlines for calling celeb blogger Perez Hilton a “messy faggot.”

Banks, who is bisexual, explained her choice of words.

She then clarified her tweet with all the grace and class we’ve come to expect.

The controversy died down, but with her debut studio album due out this year, “Yung Rapunxel” has to keep her name out there. Early Friday morning, she reignited her feud with Hilton, calling him an “evil faggot.”

Classiest. Twitter spat. Ever.

She also told “Harlem Shake” artist Baauer and others to “drown in faggotry.”

Today Banks defended her use of the slur … and called Perez Hilton a “faggot” again.

Really? “Society” is just A-OK with racial epithets?

As we all know, 1905 is best remembered for the widespread movement to censor anti-gay slurs.

It’s the most versatile word in the language!

But hey, she’s a brave culture warrior. And apparently this is the moment she’s chosen to launch her bold movement to get more people to embrace her favorite word.

And here she goes with the free speech argument:

Evidently, the First Amendment is hard for Banks. Freedom of speech does not confer freedom from judgment. And Azealia? We’re judging.

Sure, why not?
