Call each other faggots
Behind the keys of a message board

Meaning

People will say anything behind a computer screen. It’s easier to type something on a computer than it is to say it to someones face.

There has been some criticism towards Mack for using the word here in this song, but critics have failed to understand that he purposely uses that word to shock people into realizing that what he’s saying is true and how harsh it sounds coming from someone’s mouth rather than in typed text, hence why people use it without realizing (“We’ve become so numb to what we’re saying”).
