Azealia Banks’ social media anger at Sarah Palin apparently came back to bite her hard as the former vice presidential candidate returned fire in a major way with a message for the rapper.
Banks took to Twitter to respond to an article that quoted Palin as saying that “Black people willingly accepted slavery” and that “Negroes loved being slaves and they were doing just fine under our rules.”
Never shy about expressing herself, Banks sent out a disturbing shot to Palin on social media that suggested she get gang-raped by a group of black men.
“Sarah Palin needs to have her hair shaved off to a buzz cut, get headf*cked by a big veiny, ashy, Black d*ck then be locked in a cupboard. Hideous. At least suck a n*gga d*ck or summ’ before you start talking sh*t about ‘Black people willingly accepting slavery.’ Least she can do. Honestly … let’s find the biggest burliest Blackest negroes and let them run a train on her, film it and put it on Worldstar,” Banks posted in a series of tweets that eventually got deleted.
Turns out that Banks’ anger was misdirected as Palin never made the comments, which were published in a fake article created by a satirical website.
Soon after seeing Banks’ comments, Palin responded to the unfiltered rhymesayer, advising her to put her efforts into doing more to uplift women instead of advocating rape.
The following is Palin’s reply to Banks, which was posted on her (Palin’s) Facebook page:
Hey Female Rapper – listen up, little darling. No one has any idea what you’re wigging out about in these bizarre, violent rants against me, but you’re obviously not exercising enough intelligence to acknowledge you’ve been sucked into believing some fake interview in which I supposedly offered comments representing the antithesis of my truth.
In this life, you’re blessed to have been given an influential platform. So have I. Why don’t we strengthen both our platforms and work together on something worthwhile – like condemning racism, along with empowering young women to defend themselves against a most misogynist, degrading, devastating assault perpetrated by evil men – rape.
Thanks. And now I’ll go through my young daughter’s playlist to make sure there hasn’t been any inadvertent addition of any anti-woman, pro-rape garbage that you seem to endorse, which perpetuates the cultural challenges we face in America. I encourage other parents to do the same.
God bless you Ms. Banks, as you consider a change of heart. – Sarah Palin
Moments later, Banks showed upon Twitter to confess that she didn’t mean to call for Palin to get gang raped.
“I would never wish a woman to be raped,” Banks tweeted. “I said ‘BANG’ as in bang some sense into that ho.”
As much as we have differences with Sarah Palin, even she didn’t deserve that from Azealia Banks whose got some serious issues as far as we’re concerned.
