Iggy Azalea is enjoying stunning success these days, with her singles "Fancy" and "Problem" holding the number 1 and 2 spots on the Billboard Hot 100.
But while her talent has made her an A-list star, Iggy’s uncensored online rants have repeatedly landed her in hot water.
First, Iggy’s racist tweets from before she was famous shocked and offended thousands. Now, the Aussie rapper’s bitter attack on the fans of another female hip hop artist is leading many to wonder if Iggy should simply unplug from social media altogether.
After some very vocal Nicki Minaj devotees suggested that Iggy only became popular by copying Nicki’s style, Ms. Azalea broke the first rule of Internet fame by feeding the trolls in a major way:
"Just remember while your all at home online cracking jokes about artists etc that most of you have done NOTHING! NOTHING! With your lives."
Iggy continued: "So many of you internet kids quote the feats of others as if they were your own…that statement goes out to people who bully others."
Some might argue that Iggy seems to be engaging in a bit of bullying herself and suggest that the rapper may want to add learning the difference between "your" and "you’re" to her list of "feats," but those people would be leaving themselves vulnerable to one of Iggy’s Twitter tirades and we certainly wouldn’t want to be in their shoes.
