It all kicked off with a now-deleted tweet Banks shared on Sunday (Sept. 27): “LGBT community are like the gay white KKK’s. Get some pink hoods and unicorns and rally down rodeo drive." The message was captured by various blogs and can be seen below.
Banks has since made it clear she won't be backing down. "If I am to be a part of an LGBT community I want to be in it with people who aren't so weak or so easily moved ya know," she wrote in one tweet.
It’s certainly not the first time Banks has caught the ire of the LGBT community. A video went viral last week in which Banks directed a homophobic slur toward a flight attendant on a plane, igniting a wave of protest... and support. She then pressed the button on a succession of anti-gay Instagram rants which have also been deleted, notes the Pink News.
