Azealia Banks believes she is held to an unfair standard by white men in the gay community and would like to know why.
After returning from her sold-out European tour, Banks found herself faced with abuse launched at her by a Twitter user named Zachary Tyler in a now deleted tweet.
Shortly after, the Hip-House songbird’s fans uncovered a string of racist tweets published by the same character which led them to believe his issue with her was rooted in what they believe is racism.
The rapper, who is often subjected to racist abuse online, was then urged by some fans to forgive him as she spotlighted his bigotry by sharing his remarks on her Twitter account.
Confused, she posed this question…
How come the white gays forgive themselves and their faves for shit from years ago but can’t get over things I’ve apologized for constantly?
Why can’t we all just get along and go to the mermaid ball? https://t.co/zDC0E5qSca

She is of course referring to the apologies she has issued following remarks she made during feuds with her music industry peers.
Peers, she says see their mistakes erased from Pop cultural discourse as hers are used to justify the treatment she often receives from “stans.”
