That's what the 25-year-old Australian rapper, who may have never actually been taught the definition of "equality," said in a statement Friday after receiving backlash around a homophobic comment she made on Twitter.

 

“I meant no harm and deeply regret ever uttering these words,” she said. “As an adult I would never use them because I understand they play a detrimental role in the fight for issues that I do truly believe in.”

 

But Azalea hasn’t only insulted the LGBTQ community. The appropriator of black culture has repeatedly took to Twitter to spew racism as well.

 

"Owwww studio. Me chief. You indian. I speak... you listen," she tweeted back in 2010.

 

More recently, Azalea has come under fire for racist tweets she made about Latinas.

 

In one tweet she wrote that Mexican women “got the box body on lock,” while in another she asked, “Is it wrong I feel happy to hear southern accents again & not mexican ones?"
