Azealia Banks Apologizes to Sarah Palin After Twitter Rant
Azealia Banks has apologized to Sarah Palin after some crude remarks were made on Sunday (April 3). The controversial rapper unleashed a series of vicious tweets after reading a satirical article attributing some offensive statements about slavery to Palin. Banks did not recognize this as a prank and criticized Palin. She would even goes as far as to suggest sexual assault be done to Palin.
"Let's find the biggest burliest blackest negroes and let them run a train on her," Banks wrote in a since deleted tweet. "Film it and put it on Worldstar."
Sarah Palin would actually responded to Azealia Banks' outburst in a post on Facebook.
"Hey Female Rapper - listen up, little darling," Palin wrote. "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."
Azealia Banks eventually caught wind that the Palin quote was a fake and penned an apologetic letter.
"There is something very charismatic and misunderstood about you," Banks wrote. "The misunderstood bit oftentimes reminds me of myself. You’re very passionate about the things you believe in, super determined, and most certainly aware of who you are and where you stand in this world, as a parent, as a politician, but most importantly, as a woman."
The Broke With Expensive Taste rapper did clarify that she did not mean rape when she wrote that Palin should have a "train run on her."
"I never said you should be raped," Banks wrote. "I used the term ‘run a train,’ which is slang for group sex, NOT for ‘rape.’ There are many distinctions between the two,"
The letter, which was originally published on Tumblr, has already been deleted.
