Azealia Banks is taking the term celebrity feud to a completely different level! While celeb feuds, even on the social platform, have mostly been one on one, Banks is simply not willing to stick to the rule of numbers. In a string of tweets, the rapper has taken on Iggy Azalea, Perez Hilton and even T.I.! She seems to have a soft spot for the one person that everyone else seems to be against though – Bill Cosby.
In a take-no-prisoners rant, Banks has touched a series of topics, and we don’t really know if it is a planned political statement she is making here or simply losing her famous temper again. For starters, she took on Iggy Azalea, and we all know she isn’t really fond of Iggy anyways. She shot off her first tweet giving Iggy a nickname and chiding her for not voicing her support towards the protests against the Eric Garner verdict. “its funny to see people Like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen… Black Culture is cool, but black issues sure aren’t huh?” the first tweet went, followed by others like “If you’re down to ride with us b***h you gotta RIDE ALL THE WAY” and “Don’t just be down to ride Black D**k….. If you with us you WITH US!!!!” She then brought in Nicki Minaj into the picture, questioning Iggy as to why she loves to copy black rappers. “I just really want to know what your fascination with Black women is….. Why do you want to act like us? I need to know… Why do you imitate us in such a way that i feel like you are actually making fun of us? Why?”
There were a whole lot of nasty things that Banks said to Iggy, without any provocation too and when Iggy finally got on Twitter, she chose to dismiss it all without reciprocating in the same tone. Iggy instead chose to adopt a more politically correct approach and addressed the issue directly, while advising Banks to do something concrete rather than go on a rant on Twitter. “There’s more to sparking a change than trolling on social media,” she tweeted. “World issues shouldn’t be used as a poor excuse to promote fan battles… Make sure you do something to let YOUR government know how you feel when something is unjust., not JUST your followers on twitter… Make sure you sign petitions, hit the streets and protest or donate to groups helping to support and rebuild the community too.”
Well, that didn’t stop Banks from continuing her outburst. She went on how since Obama became President, these issues have been cropping up more often. “A black man in office is SCARY to white folk, and they will try and do ANY AND EVERYTHING to remind us that they are in control,” she tweeted before taking on Iggy again, this time while voicing her support for Bill Cosby. “from police murders, to macklemore and igloo australia…. They are even trying to tear down our father figure BILL COSBY,” she tweeted before dragging in T.I. out of nowhere! “AND I DARE THAT SHOE-SHINING COON T.I TO SAY SOMETHING,” she tweeted.
And did we mention Perez Hilton got caught in the middle of all this and took a severe verbal beating too? One of Banks’ tweets among many to him read, “@PerezHilton you will always be a f*****. The men you want will never give you the same social regard a woman gets.”
