Not long after a video surfaced of Azealia Banks calling someone a “f*cking f*ggot,” the rapper has taken to Instagram and Twitter to unleash another string of insults and to explain her motivation. On Friday, Banks had Instagrammed a quote that read: “Sometimes I just want someone to hug me and say ‘I know it’s hard. You’re going to be okay. Here’s a coffee. And 5 million dollars.’” Some have speculated that the upload was in response to backlash from last week’s plane incident, as the caption for the photo read: “I have never felt the pain of not being white the way I’ve felt it since I’ve been a public figure/part of this entertainment industry.” Soon after the pic was posted, one user, @a_sanctuary_found, commented: “Imagine the pain young gay fans feel when they hear the vile things you say.”

Daily Mail captured screenshots of what appear to be Banks’s responses — she evidently did not like the criticism. The most aggressive of her now deleted comments allegedly read:

  • “oh well imagine how I wanna spray a gay man in the face with pepper spray everytime he calls me a b*tch a slut or a hoe. Kiss my ass. Goodnight.”
  • “Keep f*cking with me if you f*cking want to.”
  • “One day your hemmroids are going to burst and you’ll bleed to death b*tch.”
  • “Yea keep trolling for d*ck on grindr. You’ll be murdered and stuffed under a truck somewhere soon.”

Late Sunday night, after her recent comments had time to marinate, Banks moved to Twitter to share more on the matter — again referencing last week’s drama and not apologizing:
