Azealia Banks now sees the error of her ways when it comes to throwing around the f-word. The rapper, who was recently banned from Twitter, took to Facebook to apologize for her use of the gay slur and said she'll never use it 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,” she wrote. “Honestly … This isn’t a cop out, its [sic] just me realizing that words hurt. and while I may be immune to every word and be thicker skinned than most, it doesn’t mean that I get to go around treating people with the same toughness that made my skin so thick. Because, that IS how people get thick skin… by being subjected to name calling/belittlement/abuse and its [sic] not fair. Not fair to my fans, not fair to my peers but most importantly, Not fair to myself," Banks wrote.
Banks also wanted people to realize that her recent behavior is not representative of her true self.
“I paint the picture of someone who is used to suppressing things, and being defensive,” Banks continued. “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. I’m kind, I’m caring, I’m generous, I love to make people laugh and above all of it, I LOVE ART.
“I want to SINCERELY apologize to my fans for having let so many of you down over the years,” she added. “I know that you all want nothing else for me but to see me win, and I thank the many of you who saw the beauty in me and have stuck around this far. The #Kuntbrigade loves me more than I’ve EVER felt love in my life and it would be so sacrilegious to throw away my blessings that way.”
Guess it’s better late than never?
