Azealia Banks hurls anti-gay slur at Perez Hilton

American rapper and singer Azealia Banks has defended using a homophobic slur against Perez Hilton on Twitter.

The ‘BBD’ singer reacted to criticism from the gay blogger by calling him a ‘messy faggot’.

She went on to call him ‘dickbreath’ and told him to go ‘gobble a dick’.

Referring to her various feuds with other artists, Hilton told the foul-mouthed singer: ‘Some of your music is cute, but your attention-seeking ways are pathetic and hurtful. You drag while others choose to uplift!’

In response, Banks said: ‘Whatever bitch, you tried to sign me to ur little bum ass label in ’11 with them bullshit ass artists…

‘omg you should just kill yourself….Like for real…lol what a messy faggot you are.’

Fans reacted angrily to the homophobic slur, with Hilton retweeting several of his supporters.

‘A faggot is not a homosexual male,’ she tweeted. ‘A faggot is any male who acts like a female. There’s a BIG difference.’

She added: ‘If u listen to my music and are not offended by the word nigga… We’re not gonna go here with this faggot shit… We’re just not. Lol.’

Banks deleted some of her tweets, and finally apologized at the end of the spat saying: ‘My most sincere apologies to anyone who was indirectly offended by my foul language. Not sorry for Perez tho. Lol’
