It's the same way with racial and/or stereotyping. If you're around a group of friends from another ethnicity than yours and they use language that is perceived as offensive to their ethnic group (by the use of those outside of that group); that doesn't mean that the language is no longer offensive and it doesn't make it "okay" for you to use it too just because your friends are using it.

That's the way I feel. And you have to know your audience. Your friends might even be fine with you using the [former] slur as a term of endearment, but not everyone will agree, so it's best not to say those things on twitter.
