Azealia Banks is Mad Again, This Time at Kendrick Lamar: "HOW DARE YOU open ur face to a white publication"

So this is becoming a regular thing with Azealia Banks. Maybe every week she picks a celebrity to lash out at on Twitter.

So yesterday (Jan. 9), Billboard magazine published their cover story of rapper Kendrick Lamar. The rapper discussed his feelings on the Ferguson and Michael Brown news and said to Billboard:

"I wish somebody would look in our neighborhood knowing that it's already a situation, mentally, where it's f---ed up. What happened to [Michael Brown] should've never happened. Never. But when we don't have respect for ourselves, how do we expect them to respect us? It starts from within. Don't start with just a rally, don't start from looting -- it starts from within."

Although Azealia didn't mention Kendrick's name, she did respond to him in a series of Twitter rants, what she does best:

"When we don't respect ourselves how can we expect them to respect us" dumbest sh*t I've ever heard a black man say."

"Lol do you know about the generational effects of poverty, racism and discrimination?"

"There are things in society that benefit a select few of us. fine.... But don't put down the rest by saying they don't respect themselves"

"HOW DARE YOU open ur face to a white publication and tell them that we don't respect ourselves.... Speak for your f*cking self."

Azealia Banks spazzes out at Kendrick Lamar
for what he said about Ferguson during his Billboard interview
She says, "HOW DARE YOU open ur face to a white publication..."
"I really pray for the minds of the urban youth, I really do because I was once on the side of feeling like I wasn't owed anything..."

"Once on the side of feeling like black people ain't sh*t because that's what America and my social studies textbooks taught me"

"Becoming an adult and doing my own research has REALLY opened up my fucking eyes, and I get upset to know that....."

Azealia continues...

"There are still young black kids in our public schools being indoctrinated with the same sh*t they pumped into my head."

"And f*ck all this sh*t about erasing racial barriers and getting along... Why does white America think blacks even wanna be here?!"

"I really just want my f*cking reparations, and want you guys to stop killing my sons and telling my daughters they're ugly."


She also tweeted out today in response to anyone questioning why she uses Twitter as an outlet to express whatever it is on her mind. She said:

"Why use Twitter to get my point across?"

"Because sadly, there are more of yall n*ggas online on Twitter than there are on line at the bookstore."

"you could hate me now, but I won't stop now .... *nas voice"

Wow! Just wow. I understand everyone has their own opinion, but there's a right and a wrong way in expressing yourself.

To me, Azealia Banks is always crying about something, lashing out at a celebrity if they say something she doesn't agree with, and she name calls. Why the need for all of that? Say what you have to say, but there's no reason to blow up like that. I've read a lot of Azealia's tweets in the past, and I just can't rock with this chick.
