Azealia Banks Responds to GLAAD: 'Give it a break. Derogatory words are just expletives'

2012 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival - Day 2

Following Azealia Bank’s use of an anti-gay slur during a heated argument with Perez Hilton, activist group GLAAD reached out to Banks for a formal apology.

Unfortunately, Azaelia refuses to see the problem and instead insists that derogatory words should be accepted in 2013 as simply being ‘expletives’.


GLAAD has released an official statement, saying:

As far as we’ve come in this society, seeing it used by an artist many young people may look up to is painful, but even more so for those young fans, many of whom GLAAD has heard from.

What do you think?
