Azealia Banks says she ‘wants to pepper spray a gay man in the face’ in disturbing rant

Azealia Banks has gone on yet another homophobic rant – claiming she wants to “spray a gay man in the face with pepper spray”.

The 212 rapper, who has repeatedly dismissed claims she is anti-gay in the past, was caught on camera branding a flight attendant a “f**king faggot” during an on-flight meltdown.

Amid the controversy, the rapper has not sought to smooth over relations with her gay fanbase, going on a bizarre and vile rant on Instagram.

Responding to a self-pitying post from the star reacting to the coverage, a fan wrote: “Imagine the pain young gay fans feel when they hear the vile things you say @azealiabanks.”

However, Banks hit back: “oh well imagine how I wanna spray a gay man in the face with pepper spray everytime he calls me a bitch a slut or a hoe. Kiss my ass. Goodnight.””

When the fan challenged her ‘evil’ comment, she added: “Keep f**king with me if you f**king want to. One day your hemmroids [sic] are going to burst and you’ll bleed to death bitch.'”

In a since-deleted post, she continued: “Yea keep trolling for d**k on grindr. You’ll be murdered and stuffed under a truck somewhere soon.”


The rapper has used gay slurs on a number of occasions, regularly branding gay men “faggots” on social media.

Just wanted to post the latest hijinks of Miss Banks since she was such a focal point on this forum several months ago (just search for the past topics about her on DU). She also went on a racist rant against another fan too:

I feel like I'm giving her extra attention by posting all of this mess, but when someone in the public eye says something as gross as what she says, damn well better bet he/she gets called out on it.

Obama on liberal college students who want to be "coddled": "That’s not the way we learn"

DES MOINES, Iowa — People concerned about liberal political correctness on college campuses have a powerful ally: President Obama.

At a town hall here on college affordability on Monday afternoon, one student asked Obama to respond to Republican presidential contender Ben Carson's proposal to cut off funding to colleges that demonstrate political bias.

Unsurprisingly, Obama didn't like it much. "I have no idea what that means, and I suspect he doesn’t either," he said, then continued: "The idea that you’d have somebody in government making a decision about what you should think ahead of time or what you should be taught, and if it’s not the right thought, or idea, or perspective or philosophy, that person would be — they wouldn’t get funding, runs contrary to everything we believe about education," he said. "That might work in the Soviet Union, but that doesn’t work here. That's not who we are."

After that criticism, he went on to give his opinion about what's been called the "new political correctness" on college campuses:

It’s not just sometimes folks who are mad that colleges are too liberal that have a problem. Sometimes there are folks on college campuses who are liberal, and maybe even agree with me on a bunch of issues, who sometimes aren’t listening to the other side, and that’s a problem too. I’ve heard some college campuses where they don’t want to have a guest speaker who is too conservative or they don’t want to read a book if it has language that is offensive to African-Americans or somehow sends a demeaning signal towards women. I gotta tell you, I don’t agree with that either. I don’t agree that you, when you become students at colleges, have to be coddled and protected from different points of view. I think you should be able to — anybody who comes to speak to you and you disagree with, you should have an argument with ‘em. But you shouldn’t silence them by saying, "You can’t come because I'm too sensitive to hear what you have to say." That’s not the way we learn either.

For once I actually agree wholeheartedly with a Vox article. Obama is right, we cannot protect college students from debates because it's "offensive" or "triggering". Without different viewpoints, there's no knowledge and without knowledge, college students are powerless. Anyone agree, disagree?

Also read the rest of the article, it's truly a good read and ideas on how to make college ed. more well-rounded for students.
