The feud between Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks has been heating up in recent weeks, which is really not surprising, as at this point, neither of them is relevant for anything other than social media beefs.
These two have been at each other’s throats ever since Azealia (somewhat hilariously) referred to Iggy as “Satan in the form of mayonnaise” and accused her of appropriating black culture without making any effort to understand the challenges faced by African-Americans.
Things picked up earlier this month, when Banks issued a death threat to Iggy on social media, shortly before deleting her Twitter account entirely (much to the chagrin of lovers of online drama).
We didn’t think it was possible, but this feud got even darker today.
It all started during a recent radio interview, when Iggy admitted to contemplating suicide due to the amount of hate she’s received online.
“Sometimes I’d drive through the canyons to get to my horses, and I’d think, what if I just kept driving off the canyon?” she told LA DJ J Cruz last week.
Most who heard her comments felt at least a little bit bad for Iggy…but not Azealia:
“YAAS slavemaster,” Banks commented on an article about the interview. “Drive that slave truck right off the canyon!!”
Yikes. Azealia’s not known for her sensitivity, but telling a person who’s publicly admitted to being suicidal that she should kill herself is really a new low.
