    Azealia Banks is under fire for a since-deleted tweet calling gay men the "gay white KKK."

    “LGBT community (GGGG) are like the gay white KKK’s,” Banks wrote in the since-deleted tweet. “Get them some pink hoods and unicorns and let them rally down rodeo drive.”

    Banks tweeted the inflammatory comment in response to a video that surfaced last week of the rapper calling a male flight attendant a gay slur.

    In a series of tweets, Banks blasted gay members of the LGBT community (hence her turning "LGBT" into "GGGG" in her tweet) for turning on her after she used the slur.

    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.

    — AZEALIABANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 28, 2015
    You boys gotta toughen up!!! Don't be so weak !!! If one word can put your entire community in distress you're DOOMED. LOL

    Banks has used the phrase "GGGG" before to criticize what she sees as the prioritization of gay men in of LGBT culture.

    Gay male misogyny has driven me to my breaking point. I no longer want to be associated with anything LGBT.

    — AZEALIABANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 25, 2015
    "Because it's not really LGBT. It's (expletive) GGGG and I'm sick of gay white men having control of the LGBT conversation," she wrote in a tweet last week.

    The rapper has a rocky history with the mainstream LGBT community; she's been praised for criticizing white gay men for appropriating black culture and marginalizing minorities, while coming under fire for her use of homophobic slurs. In one high-profile incident in 2013, Banks leveled a slur at Perez Hilton, who then accused Banks of being homophobic.

    Banks told the Guardian in 2014 that she's criticizing misogynists, not gay people, when she uses homophobic slurs.

    “A lot of gay men are way more misogynistic than straight men,” she said. “The (expletive) they say about women behind their backs, it’s like: ‘Wow, oh my God!' ... A f***** is anybody that hates women. It’s like, y’all sing along to my words when I’m saying [expletives leveled at black people and women], but as soon as I call this one white man a f***** the whole world exploded."

    Banks has also cited her own sexual orientation to defend herself against claims she's homophobic.

    I am bisexual. my brother is trans. My employees are all gay men. . Nothing else to say.

    — AZEALIABANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 22, 2015
    Last week, video surfaced of Banks on a plane, arguing with a flight attendant over her bag, which eventually escalates into her calling the attendant a slur.

    Banks later tweeted, "Ok so I get hit in the face by a man and no one cares. The only hear what I called the man who was blocking my exit."

    I've been a victim of domestic abuse before and I have a flight or fight reaction whenever men get in my face.

    — AZEALIABANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 23, 2015
    No one cares that I was ASSAULTED. Had my property held against my will. Please don't ever mention my name and lgbt again.

    I think the current power rankings do show a black female outranking a gay male.

    However, I don't think the credit limit on her race card can cover an attack on the entire LGBT community.
    According to the PC rules of engagement, she must apologize or risk loss of career and status.

    Everyone is special, but some are more special than others.

    Hey let's not forget that she was the victim of domestic abuse as well. That's gotta be worth something, no?

    My current estimate of the PC victimization chart. Basically you can only be abused by people on the list lower than you, and abuse from someone higher on the list to someone lower will usually be ignored.

    Jewish
    Homosexual
    Non-White Women
    Black
    Hispanic
    Arab/Muslims (when immigrated to the West)
    White Women
    Asian
    White Men
    Arab/Muslims (when in their own countries)
    Christians
