Azealia Banks may have a few (okay, let’s be real…a lot) of f*ck-ups when it comes to spurting out the first unedited thoughts that come to her mind — whether it’s on a plane or on Twitter.

But throughout her various social media mishaps, the “Chasing Time” artist does manage to speak the truth on certain issues. Back in September, Azealia slammed Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift for making “basic ass music.”

But today (October 7), she is specifically targeting the Pinkprint rapper — and for valid reasons. In her interview with New York TimesNicki Minaj continued to call out Miley Cyrus. Yet according to Azealia, she needs to stop playing the victim.

“I wish Nic would stop trying to turn this Miley thing into a race issue cuz she was mute about cultural approp. until she became “victim,” Azealia tweeted. “Plus how u gonna complain about a video with skinny women when ur body is enhanced .. You too were once a skinny woman,” she continued.

Whether she wants to admit it or not, Nicki Minaj usually glosses over cultural appropriation issues and comes off as a bit narcissistic — Zendaya, anyone? It’s only when it affects her directly that her “woe is me” act comes into play. As for the fake booty and boobs speculation? That has been discussed since the beginning of her mainstream career.
