Azealia Banks apologizes for 'evil' PrEP rant, then 'bids adieu' to LGBTQ fans

‘212’ rapper Azealia Banks surely has a lot to say about everything and everyone, and she is rarely regretful about any of it.

Last month, after learning gay music artist Frank Ocean starting a nightclub party series called “PrEP+” – named after the HIV prevention drug Pre-exposure prophylaxis – Banks ranted for over 7 minutes online, bashing PrEP takers and Ocean. She derived that those taking the “evil” pill “need a psychiatrist”, and claimed that Ocean was “probably getting paid by some white gay corporation” to promote the “f**king death trap”.

This was the latest in a storied and well-documented history of blatant ignorance and bigotry promoted by Banks, which most notably led to her ban from Twitter in 2016 for homophobic raves directed at Zayn Malik. Despite this, she has, by her own omission, a mostly LGBTQ fan base.

“Clearly I have a lot of gay male friends,” Banks said during her anti-PrEP tirade. “…There’s no reason for you to need to have a f**king pill so you can just f**k whoever you want.”


In the comments of the post, Banks even went further to admit that she learned “all these ‘tough love’ and anger styles of expressing myself which have surely been passed down through generations of oppression.”


This is disgusting on so many levels, including her fucking "excuse" for her original rant, which is sadly a cop-out for many a homophobe.

1. She's like this era's version of a shock jock. I don't know what she truly believes and

what she says to get attention, but she is simply disgusting. Why on earth would she have an LGBTQ fan base? Why when she has defended Trump, does she have an African American fan base?
