Azealia Banks Responds to Sarah Palin in Open Letter & Tweets

Azealia Banks is responding to former politician Sarah Palin‘s announcement that she plans on suing the rapper over comments made on Twitter.

The 24-year-old entertainer took to her social media page to laugh off Sarah‘s plans for a lawsuit and she also wrote a lengthy open letter.

“LOL, if Sarah Palin actually decides to sue me i’ll only use the controversy to make myself an even larger American Cultural Figure,” Azealia tweeted. “The Sarah Palin page in history will be condensed to a footnote in the Azealia Banks chapter. Well behaved women seldom make history.”

“The Universe works in mysterious ways. She’s handing me her head on a platter. This will open many doors for me,” Azealia added.

Sarah Palin Will Sue Azealia Banks Over Twitter Comments

Sarah Palin has announced that she plans on suing rapper Azealia Banks over comments she made about the former politician on Twitter.

The 24-year-old controversial star took to her social media page over the weekend and wrote some since-deleted NSFW tweets suggesting that Palin “needs to have her hair shaved off,” forced to perform oral sex on black men, “then be locked in a cupboard.”

After a Twitter user reposted her quotes and said Azealia thinks that Palin should be “gang-raped,” the rapper responded by saying she would “never wish a woman to be raped” and meant that she wanted to “bang some sense into that ho.”

Here is what Palin said in a statement to People: “I’ve had enough of the unanswered threats and attacks against my family and me. So, for the first time I’m going to enjoy the only retribution some protected ‘celebrities’ seem to understand – I’m suing Azealia Banks and can’t wait to share my winnings with others who have gone defenseless against lies and dangerous attacks far too long.”

Azealia engages in a form of racism and hate that is celebrated by some in the perverted arm of pop culture, but is condemned by those who know it’s tearing our country apart,” she continued. “Others may keep turning a blind eye to problems like Azealia‘s mouth; I choose to take a stand against it and the double standards that result in her actually being rewarded for her divisive tactics and aggressively inciting violence.”
