Azealia Banks’ New Rant: “B*tch” VS “Fa**ot!”

Published

on

Another day, another Azealia Banks social media rant.

The rapper went on an Instagram tirade on Thursday and launched a seemingly controversial argument. “Why is it okay for a gay man to colloquially use the word “B*tch” to refer to women, but is it not okay for me to colloquially use the word “fa**ot” to refer to myself or an opponent?”

“Do gay men get a special pass to say misogynist things simply because they Like d*ck? The argument is  that countless gay kids here the word ‘fa**ot’ before they are beat to death,” she wrote. “But do you know how many women hear the word ‘B*tch’ before their husbands beat them to death? Before they are murdered/raped… ?”

The photo’s caption read: “Azealia Banks is Homophobic 1.”

Several social media users chimed in, many taking both sides of the argument.

“I agree 1 thousand percent. It’s hypocritical to get pissed off at someone saying faggot or other gay slurs but yet if you are gay or lesbian and you cussing up a storm, cussing people out, there’s nothing but hate in that as well,” someone wrote.

“But if female is being beat to death by her husband then that man isn’t gay. Besides to wrongs don’t make a right this lady is such a ridiculous waste of time,” someone else wrote.

“My thing is that it’s the way she said it. She plonked her foot in the shark pit, when all she needed to do was to dip her toe in, but I do respect her for her honesty and the fact that she speaks truth, I don’t agree with everything she says, but I’ll support her right to say it,” someone commented.

Bank’s argument comes just days after she defended herself on Twitter after posting a photo of herself with the captioned “#whiteface.”

    This young lady speaks too much truth, her delivery is not always perfect but she speaks from emotion and her heart. This is the main and only reason that she will never go mainstream. She is a loose cannon and I love it.

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Published

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
