‘Gay men hate women’

The Star Early Edition - - TONIGHT TELEVISION -

AZEALIA Banks, 23, claims lots of “gay men are way more misog­y­nis­tic than straight men”. The rap­per got em­broiled in a war of words on Twit­ter with celebrity blog­ger Perez Hil­ton in Jan­uary last year dur­ing which she branded him a “messy fag­got”.

Azealia was crit­i­cised for us­ing the ho­mo­pho­bic slur, but she de­fines “fag­got” as be­ing an in­sult for misog­y­nists – and a ha­tred of women is some­thing she be­lieves many gay guys have.

When asked if she re­gret­ted the feud by The Guardian, she said: “I don’t re­gret do­ing it, but I’ll never do it again, be­cause I don’t care enough about the per­son to have the bat­tle again and de­fend my use of the word ‘fag­got’. A lot of gay men are way more misog­y­nis­tic than straight men. The s**t they say about women be­hind their backs…

“A fag­got is any­body who hates women.”
