Azealia Banks “Sort Of” Agrees With Donald Trump’s Politics, Rapidly Backtracks After Backlash
Occasional rapper/full-time internet troll Azealia Banks had some time on her hands yesterday (September 7) and decided to express her support for Donald Trump’s hardline stance on immigration. “Do you think it’s bad that I sort of agree with Trumps stance on immigration?” she wrote on Instagram. “Not for any other reason than black Americans still not having been paid reparations for slavery and the influx INTERNATIONAL immigrants (not just Mexicans), are sucking up state aid, and government money, space in schools, quality of life etc??”
Not surprisingly, the Broke With Expensive Taste rapper’s comments sparked an immediate backlash (claiming that immigrants ruin your “quality of life” will do that) and she quickly backtracked in subsequent posts. “My previous insta was just a social experiment,” Azealia claimed. “And you ALL MISSED THE POINT. I’m not supporting trump. I’m pointing out the fact that the media has been really really instrumental in helping black people forget about things and shine this all American bullshit in people’s faces.” Read the 24-year-old’s five page commentary below.
