Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks resumed their on and off feud in the wake of a grand jury’s decision not to indict a police offer for the murder of Eric Garner.
Azealia was very frustrated with the decision, tweeting”OKAY, what do i do to help this, to stop this???… How do i get involved?????… Im sick and tired of being sick and tired.”
It didn’t take long for Banks to move on from racial profiling to dissing Iggy Azalea, claiming she “wanted to be black so bad” and telling her she’d never be Nicki Minaj.
“its funny to see people Like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen… Black Culture is cool, but black issues sure aren’t huh?”
“If you’re down to ride with us bitch you gotta RIDE ALL THE WAY,” she continued. “‘EVERYBODY WANNA BE BLACK, BUT DON’T NOBODY WANNA BE BLACK’ – PAUL MOONEY.”
“The media needs to STOP trying to move igloo in on what Nicki has established,” Banks wrote. “Nicki is a hard-working rap-BEAST. stop trying to degrade and BELITTLE Our culture with this f–king kkk iggy s–t.”
She ended her rant against Azalea by tweeting at her directly, writing, “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?”
Not one to take such lightly, Iggy retorted after a few hours.
“There’s more to sparking a change than trolling on social media,” she wrote. “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.”
“Also try not to judge anothers support or ‘lack there of’ solely on if they have ranted on twitter about it, thats not right or helpful,” Azalea continued. “The world is too hung up on what is or isnt said on twitter… There’s an actual world out there and multiple ways you can promote change… Be mad but be productive, please!”
