Azealia Banks has a love-hate relationship with the LGBT community.

After her tardy and abbreviated performance at Wynwood Pride over the weekend, you can add a few more to the hater's column.

She was set to appear at 1 a.m. Saturday night/Sunday morning. Die-hard partiers and fans grooved to a DJ set as 1 a.m. came and went. Then 2 a.m. By 2:30 a.m. the crowd was getting restless and started booing and calling for her to take the stage. Finally, at 3 a.m., Banks appeared wearing an outfit that exposed her breasts. The crowd went wild. But she wasn’t there long.

Banks, who never shies away from airing her dirty laundry, took aim at event organizers. She said details were switched around leading up to the event. A couple of songs into her set, she declared, “I was being f—ed with.” She did a couple more songs before bringing the realness back, announcing that she didn’t want to be there.

Video posted on social media shows people started booing and Banks responded by throwing her microphone into the audience. At that point, a water bottle was thrown on stage. Members of her entourage came on stage, surrounded her, and escorted her off.

As of this writing, she hasn’t made any mention of the night on her social media pages.

Banks has a history of making anti-LGBT statements. In 2019 she tried to cut ties with her LGBT fans, saying, “I love the gays ad love how much y’all love me, but I really have to eject … I find myself acknowledging/looking at s–t I’m leagues above and it really is such a setback. So, gays … I bid you adieu.”

Banks also told people they shouldn’t take PrEP, a pill that blocks HIV infections.

“Do not take that PrEP s–t, okay? There’s no reason for you to need to have a f–king pill so you can just f–k whoever you want to f–k and just be all f–king nasty out there on the streets acting a f–king fool.”

She later apologized for that comment.

She’s also made homophobic slurs against a flight attendant and was banned from Twitter over attacks on a singer in One Direction.
