Twitter troublemaker and occasional rapper Azealia Banks has attacked fellow hip-hop star A$AP Rocky, accusing him of being gay.

The '212' rapper posted two tweets directed at A$AP Rocky, after he made comments about black women's choice of make-up, suggesting that dark skinned female shouldn't wear red lipstick, stating: "I feel like with the red lipstick thing it all depends on the pair of complexion. I’m just being for real. You have to be fair skinned to get away with that."

He made the quotes during an interview with The Coveteur.

Azealia hit back, on Twitter. "Lol @ A$ap Rocky's lipstick advice," she wrote. "Some people should just come out of the closet."

Azealia Banks has not made herself popular in the music world of late, calling Rita Ora a 'thirsty wh*re', The Stone Roses 'old saggy white n***as' and falling out with rival rappers Shystie and Angel Haze.

Despite falling out with a number of artists, Azealia has found favour with some big name stars of late, having recently confirmed collaborations with Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Kanye West.

Banks told Australia's George FM radio in an interview in March 2013: "I can't really like absorb the vibe or I can - you know - I'm lying, because I've collaborated with Lady GaGa, Beyoncé and Kanye West."

Azealia Banks previously came under fire for making homophobic comments against US celebrity Perez Hilton, calling the blogger a 'messy faggot' and suggesting he 'kill himself' in a string of message. She later apologised for her use of the word. An official statement from GLAAD later criticised Banks' language.

"Banks' claim that the word 'f**got' doesn't mean a gay male is not true. Regardless of her intent or her personal definition, what matters is the meaning given to that word by those who hear it, and the damage it causes when they do," says a statement from the organisation.
