One thing we can state as fact on this Tuesday afternoon: Azealia Banks loves her some controversy.
The outspoken raptress is known for her social media beefs with folks like Iggy Azalea, Lady Gaga, T.I., Eminem, Rita Ora, and A$AP Rocky, but her latest antic had everyone up in arms after she posted a photo of herself on Instagram as a white person, or as she calls it an "ice princess," with the hashtag "#whiteface."
The real deal is that Azealia was donning the look for her upcoming video, but when she tried to explain herself on Twitter it didn't sit well with people when she snapped back and called folks "crackers" and said she used that racial slur as much as she does "n----r."
Lol u crackers wish I cared enough to be doing whiteface. I'm becoming the ICE PRINCESS YAAAAAAS
I use the word crAcker just as much as I use the word n---er... Don't get mad now
You lot are all so easily moved... DAMN.
Yall really r hype. This is not white face this is my Ice Princess makeup. Calm tf down LOL
And sidebar.. When snoop did whiteface YALL all thought that shit was hilarious and funny right? #MISOGYNOIR at its finest!!
In case you missed what "misogynoir" means, Azealia posted a link to a Wikipedia page that explains it as:
"Misogynoir" is a portmanteau term coined by queer black feminist scholar Moya Bailey. Misogynoir refers to anti-black misogyny, where race and gender together are factors in the hatred of black women. Bailey created the term to address misogyny directed toward black women in American visual and popular culture.
After that, she went in on "gay media," implying that gay people are victimizing themselves when no one really cares about their sexuality.
Gay media has to stop using homophobia as a means to try and victimize itself and scar the names of its opponents. Phobia would imply that I am scared of gay men or dislike them because of what they choose to do sexually. I promise, no one gives a f--k what u decide to do in your private lives.
But I also promise, that no matter how bi--hy and clever you think you are.. That I will out-b--ch you. But I'm just going to ignore yall from here on out cause YALL are really just reaching and looking for any reason to insert ur selves.
The gay white media is so evil, ugly and delusional.
We all know publicity is a helluva drug, but d-mn.
