Azealia Banks made headlines last week after calling a flight attendant a “fucking faggot” in light of a disagreement the two had had regarding her luggage. Banks claims that the altercation with the flight attendant only escalated to such heights because a fellow passenger struck her around the face area, although an eyewitness later disputed this.


Shortly after the incident had taken place, the rapper took to Twitter to address the homophobic slur that was making news across the Internet: “I am bisexual. my brother is trans. My employees are all gay men. . Nothing else to say,” she tweeted.

However, over the weekend, Banks again took to Twitter to blast the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community.


She implies that the LGBT population is weak for reacting so strongly to her remark, and suggests that those who identify as such need to “toughen up,” later saying, “If one word can put your entire community in distress you’re DOOMED. LOL”
