Back in March, Azealia Banks deleted her Twitter account. Five months later, the Harlem native is again quitting social media.
Banks took to Facebook, writing,
“I’m seriously tired of peoples feelings. I’m tired of seeing their overly sensitive reactions and responses to everything. I’m tired of having everything I say or do be monitored and I’m tired of being told how I should be behaving. I’m quitting Facebook, and any other form of social media that allows me to engage with people. My legacy can’t live and die on the Internet. Goodbye. For good.”
Azealia was in the news on July 20 for saying she doesn’t think President Obama is helping the Black community. She has also publicly stated she’s voting for Donald Trump, because in her view, he’s “the only one who truly has the balls to bust up big business.”
The 25-year-old MC also recently admitted that she bleaches her skin, and said she “did it to assimilate.” At the time, she typed on Facebook, “What’s the difference between getting a nose job and changing your skin color? Nobody was upset when I was wearing 30-inch weaves and tearing out my edges and doing all that type of shit like that. You guys loved it … As a black person in this world you assimilate.” Bruh, what?
This is the same chick who repeatedly used the homophobic slur ‘faggot’ throughout her career. Clearly, Banks is all over the place – it’s probably a good thing she’s done with social media. That being said, she’s said that she was going to quit before and then went back to using it again. So you never know.
