Yesterday (April 5) Trump supports Azealia Banks and Sarah Palin were at odds all over a satire article.
Banks read a satire article that quoted Palin saying, “Even The French Understand That Slavery Wasn’t Our Fault, Because The Negroes Liked It,” in true Azealia Banks fashion, she went on Twitter rant about how wrong Palin was.
In a now-deleted twitter rant (probably deleted after she realized her error,) Azealia wrote that Palin should have a train ran on her by “the biggest burliest blackest negroes,” among a bunch of explicit tweets. After the rant made headlines, Palin decided to respond.
“You’re obviously not exercising enough intelligence to acknowledge you’ve been sucked into believing some fake interview,” Palin wrote. “Why don’t we strengthen both our platforms and work together on something worthwhile — like condemning racism.” Then the best part: “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.”
After Palin’s statement was released, Banks responded with an apology via tumblr. “Since learning that the article was not published officially, I sincerely apologize for any emotional distress or reputational scarring i may have caused you,” she told Palin in an open letter.
Banks said in the statement that she was just “kidding.”
“I happen to have a really crass, New-York-City sense of humor, and regularly make silly jokes in attempts make light of situations which make me uncomfortable. As the fabric of the American Nation is EMBEDDED with racism, I merely made a raCIALly driven joke to counter what i believed to be real, raCIST rhetoric. Also, i never said you should be raped. I used the term “run a train,” which is slang for group sex, NOT for ‘rape.’”
Palin told People exclusively that she plans to legally go after Banks because the tweets were harmful in several ways.
“I’ve had enough of the unanswered threats and attacks against my family and me,” Palin said. “So, for the first time I’m going to enjoy the only retribution some protected ‘celebrities’ seem to understand—I’m suing Azealia Banks and can’t wait to share my winnings with others who have gone defenseless against lies and dangerous attacks far too long.”
Political season 2016 is shaping up better than an episode of “House Of Cards.” Peep Azealia’s rant below.
