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

https://twitter.com/AZEALIABANKS/status/287409641091104769

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.”

https://twitter.com/AZEALIABANKS/status/302276634994692097

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

https://twitter.com/AZEALIABANKS/status/302432008536211456

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

https://twitter.com/AZEALIABANKS/status/302432427257786369

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

https://twitter.com/AZEALIABANKS/status/302437418487930880

https://twitter.com/AZEALIABANKS/status/302437547076882433

It’s the most versatile word in the language!

https://twitter.com/AZEALIABANKS/status/302438342140755970

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.

https://twitter.com/AZEALIABANKS/status/302440771641044992

https://twitter.com/AZEALIABANKS/status/302443204891000833

https://twitter.com/AZEALIABANKS/status/302442931040686082

And here she goes with the free speech argument:

https://twitter.com/AZEALIABANKS/status/302445774267105281

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

https://twitter.com/AZEALIABANKS/status/302448207349313536

      • Joe W.

        And I never said they could NOT allow any post to remain. I simply asked a legitimate question, pal. The vulgarity allowed in reporting and displaying Tweets is far more vile and repulsive than anything I have EVER posted, yet many of my posts are removed. The only reason the one we refer to now has remained is because I, in a sense, challenged them. You will note, I still have received no response from a moderator. Nor do I really expect one. I was merely voicing my exasperation with the lack of any clear posting guidelines. BTW, what is a “stoy”??

    • Joe W.

      Oh, I am not confused. I think they are BOTH vile, vulgar miscreants with the morals of alley cats. No confusion at all. Homosexuality is a perversion, and moon bat liberals see it as some sort of wonderful condition. Sick.

      • Bristel

        It’s not any more wonderful or worse of a condition than being heterosexual. I despise it when someone uses those qualifiers against gay people that they used against black people, especially in the arena of interracial marriage or general morality, early last century.

        • Joe W.

          BS, Princess. Being black is how many people are BORN. It is a RACE. Being gay is a choice. A perverted BAD choice. And no amount of squealing or purse slapping will change that. Furthermore, I do not care WHAT you despise or what you do not. I do not recall soliciting your opinion.

          • Bristel

            You posted on a public forum, your solicitation is not necessary. And second, you don’t know whether or not being gay is a choice, or genetics. And if it is genetics, I’m sure you’d weasel your way into legally destroying us before birth, wouldn’t you? I don’t own a purse, but maybe it’d be a good idea to slap you upside the head with one. It will be loaded with Queen and ABBA CDs.

          • Joe W.

            Wrong on every count, as usual, moron. I abhor abortion, and I love all of God’s people, including homosexuals. It is the sin of your lifestyle CHOICE to engage in that behavior that I hate. It is no different than ME, as an alcoholic possessing the gene that causes alcoholism choosing to drink or not to drink. I drank for thirty years and have been sober for 23 years. My NEED to drink is no less strong than your NEED to engage in sodomy. BOTH behaviors are sinful, so I choose to deny my sinful urge. You deny the existence of your sin and even demand that I accept and reward it by sanctioning your “marriage”.. Never gonn happen, Cupcake. As for Queen and ABBA?? I love both groups music. Too bad Freddy Mercury’s his sin brought on his AIDS and cost him his life, isn’t it?? That should be a warning for y’all, but, like everything else, you deny and ignore it all. Play safe, Twinkles.

          • Bristel

            I don’t need you to sanction my marriage, you are not my arbiter of law. And neither are people like you. The constitution is. And if it is found to be unconstitutional to deny same-sex marriage, then we’ll win, it’s that simple.

          • Joe W.

            Hiss and spew all wish wish, Cupcake. You are still a loser, and you will always be a disgusting pervert as long as you choose to engage in sodomy. Tata, Thweetheart!!

    As vulgar as this woman is, she makes a good point about the “n” word being accepted in certain circumstances (rappers have songs using the word, etc) and how idiotic the outrage over the ‘f’ word is in comparison. I’m not advocating that either word is acceptable in decent society (and that goes for the rap songs too, btw) but the FAUX-rage over her use of the word — by a disgusting, slimey guttersnipe & gossip-monger like Perez Hilton no less — is pretty ridiculous. Personally, I’m sick of the prog “diversity police” swooping in to attack and vilify anyone who doesn’t meet their “acceptable language” check-list. If you don’t like the way someone chooses to express him/herself, just *ignore* them (& on Twitter, just “block” them). This public shaming over *words* — by a society that advocates “free” birth control & taxpayer funded abortions — is getting out of hand.
