Azealia Banks is not a woman to hold her tongue, and this week, she fired off at a popular Instagram blog owner over her lack of coverage of critical, global issues.
Banks attacked entertainment news website, The Shade Room owner Angelica Nwandu, slamming her for not covering the ongoing tensions in her native country of Nigeria.
“The shaderoom is run by a Nigerian woman who is more obsessed with denigrating black Americans than doing anything with her platform to bring light to the issues like SARS and Boko Haram that plague her home country. Sure blacks have issues here, but the situation in Nigeria is DIRE,” Banks wrote. “She doesn’t have the courage to fight for her own. She uses black American media to distract herself from how politically incapable sue truly is.”
Banks continued: “She is a useless pig. Why does anyone give a f*ck what her fat ass to say about us? Lmao. African Americans are far fairing far better and she wants to be one of us so bad it’s comical.”
Coverage of the #EndSARS movement has died down in the media — but the issues have no gone away. Banks appears to be upset that the platform has not continued to highlight the ongoing oppression and violence.
“I couldn’t be of Nigerian descent and ignore the fact that China is funding boko haram and other groups to terrorize Nigeria and its citizens while I sit back in my gluttony, gorging on poisonous american food supply while my people die on sacred land. She is a useless pig,” she concluded her scathing remarks.
