Oh my. Rapper Azealia Banks went there. The 24 year old is raising a huge controversy around tweets about the LGBT community. Banks had tweeted, “LGBT community (GGGG) are like the gay white KKK’s. Get them some pink hoods and unicorns and let them rally down Rodeo Drive.”

The tweet was eventually deleted but captured by Complex magazine before she went to twitter to defend herself the next day.

This came quickly after last week where the rapper made headlines after being videoed in a TMZ clip where she called a Delta flight attendance a “f–king f—-t.”

After such incident, Banks yet again took to Twitter to deny she was homophobic. She tweeted, “I am bisexual. My brother is trans. My employees are all gay men. Nothing else to say.”

After the LGBT community got word of this latest comparison tweet, there was a bit of an uproar against the star. Banks responded with several more tweets including, “You guys gave me so much power this weekend!!! All I had to do was say one word and I moved a whole community. What weaklings!!! If I am to be a part of an LGBT community I want to be in it with people who aren’t so weak or so easily moved ya know.”

The star had yet another rant against the gay community on September 24th where she took her words to instagram and said “I wanna spray a gay man in the face with pepper spray every time he calls me a bi**h a slut or a hoe.”
