Celebrity feuds on Twitter are nothing new, but gossip blogger Perez Hilton got himself involved in a nasty war of words after he butted in an exchange between rappers Azealia Banks and Angel Haze.
The beef started between Banks and Angel Haze on Thursday over Azealia’s statement about non-New Yorkers. Perez sided with Angel Haze and was hit by a gay slur by Azealia Banks.
Banks started things by going off on Twitter saying she’s tired of non-New York artists trying to represent the city as their own.
Angel Haze was offended and fired off tweets attacking Banks, who tweeted back accusing Angel of being jealous and sexually attracted to her.
Perez Hilton tossed out his two cents and sided with Haze and started tweeting Banks, calling her “thirsty,” “pathetic,” and “hurtful.”
Azealia Banks didn’t appreciate him butting in and tweeted, “@PerezHilton omg u should just kill yourself…Like for real”, adding, “@perezhilton lol what a messy faggot you are.”
Banks later explained her word choice, stating that “A faggot is not a homosexual male. A faggot is any male who acts like a female. There’s a BIG difference.”
She later added, “My most sincere apologies to anyone who was indirectly offended by my foul language. Not sorry for Perez tho. Lol. Really not as moved by this f word thing as u all want me to be. As a bisexual person I knew what I meant when I used that word.”
It didn’t take too long for Angel Haze to release a diss track entitled “On the Edge” that is aimed at Banks.
The lyrics stated, “I’m busy killing these bitches. I’m the only one you ain’t tweet!”
