Azealia Banks may be ready to make a mature decision as she’s decided to stop saying the gay slur, “f—-t.”
The 25-year-old rapper went on her Facebook page to share her revelation. “Ok, i’m never saying the word F****T ever again. The amount of people that get hurt when i use the word vs. the amount of people i’ve said it to are just not worth it. Honestly…This isn’t a cop out, its just me realizing that words hurt,” reads the lengthy post.
Banks, who is still suspended from Twitter, also added that her recent actions and lashing out doesn’t show the true person that she is.
“By using those words i paint a picture of myself that isn’t the true me. I paint the picture of my upbringings, my neighborhood, my pain, and my misfortunes… I paint the picture of someone who is used to suppressing things, and being defensive. I paint the picture of someone who cannot allow themselves to be vulnerable or at the very least, Happy…. When i am ALL of those things,” she said. “I’m sweet, i’m kind, i’m caring, i’m generous, i love to make people laugh and above all of it, I LOVE ART. I love to please and inspire others with my music and art the most, More than i love anything in the world.”
We certainly hope that Banks can continue on this road of positivity.
