Keep in mind, this comes from a woman who said, “I hate everything about this country!”
Radio.com: This may or may not be related to the recent trouble Azealia Banks encountered on a flight earlier from NYC to LAX, but the singer has been blowing up Twitter with several disparaging comments about whiteness.
In case you missed it, Banks flew to Los Angeles early Tuesday morning and, upon trying to scoot past a French couple who were unloading their luggage from the overhead compartments in front of her, she allegedly got into an altercation with the man. Things took a turn for the worse when Banks allegedly called a Delta flight attendant who intervened a homophobic slur. She later took to Twitter to shut down the backlash.
Banks took to Twitter again, talking peripherally about the Black Lives Matter movement. She mentioned how tired she was of hearing white people say that all lives matter (a common counter to the Black Lives Matter movement). From there, she began spiraling off into a series of other tweets about whiteness and reptilian brain theories.
Of course, there were responses. Banks defended her claims, telling followers, “I beg you guys to please unfollow me. This is my Twitter and I will post what I want my followers to see. If you don’t like it PLEASE LEAVE.” In a tweet a few seconds later, she wrote, “I’m really really not interested in the [“All Lives Matter”] bulls— and I honestly don’t want to hear what any of you haters have to say.”
Here are a few of her tweets.
“Why do white folk have to be soooooo disappointing al the time? If I hear another white person say all lives matter”
“Whiteness may be a mental Illness. the general disregard for other people’s struggle that white folk generally have is not of this earth”
“And if all the pharmaceutical companies have a pill for every emotional disorder why don’t they invent something to cure whiteness?”
“Why have they not invented a pill to save the planet from whiteness? There has to be someway to affect that reptilian cortex and fix it.”
“The peoples of the world are drowning in white language, white culture, white religions, white ideals. Who is gonna save us from it?”
I’m thinking this girl has some anger issues. She also tweeted the following:
“Gay white men don’t support anyone gay but themselves and I’m sick of the bullshit. Leave me out of it.”
“I don’t wanna come to ur glaad, to ur logo, to nothing GAY. Especially when all YALL think bisexuality is fake anyway. FOH”
“Because it’s not really LGBT. It’s fucking GGGG and I’m sick of gay white men having control of the LGBT conversation.”
“Gay male misogyny has driven me to my breaking point. I no longer want to be associated with anything LGBT.”
She must be such a blast at parties.
