Inteeeeeeeernet Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!Whoot whoot! We got us a good ol’ fashioned Twitter battle! And this one involves the Harlem Shake dance craze! Helmets on, people!YouTube musician Azealia Banks didn’t like that “Harlem Shake” innovator Baauer took issue with her doing a remix of his song, so she took to Twitter to call him a “faggot.” Well, initially she called him a “pussy” and said he “didn’t belong in hiphop,” but after another recording artist, Brillz, came to Baauer’s defense, she responded, “You guys are all faggots… may you drown in faggotry.” Damn. I had a cousin who died that way.

Now, “reformed bully” Perez Hilton has gotten involved, tweeting:  ”Classy as always! How does it feel to be better known for all your trash-talking than your music, Azealia? #TeamBauuer.” The move reignites a feud that Banks and Hilton had earlier this year.So … yeah, stay tuned to see if Azealia still has a career after this. Should be interesting.
