Azealia Banks Issues Apology After Making Racist Statements

Azealia Banks has taken to her Instagram to issue an apology for the offensive remarks made towards Zayn Malik.

“Dear World, Now that the immediacy of the infamous incident has worn off, I’ve had some time to decompress & take a more rational assessment of things. I want to extend my sincerest apologies to the world. Employing racial/sexual slurs/stereotypes in attempts to make fun of or degrade another person or group is absolutely unacceptable and is not fair or fun for anyone. Allowing my anger to get the best of me, I’ve managed to insult millions of people without reason. And for that I give my deepest apologies,” the 24-year-old rapper wrote on her account.

Azealia was banned from Twitter for her racist and homophobic remarks. Azealia also was in a Twitter feud with Disney star Skai Jackson last week.

Bristol Palin Slams Azealia Banks, Defends Mom Sarah Palin

Bristol Palin just defended her mom Sarah and slammed Azealia Banks, continuing the online feud.

“Azealia, which of your songs will teach me your values?,” Bristol titled her new blog post.

“She said the best thing to happen to my mom is if she was gang raped by a group of black men. It is unfortunate people in my generation think they can do, and say, whatever they wish without any sort of consequence. There are consequences for every action you make Miss Bank$, and there will be consequences for your unimaginable threats,” Bristol continued.

“I am not going to waste another minute of my day addressing you, but I will finish my post by addressing what you said in regards to my children,” Bristol added. “This is your quote: ‘If Bristol Palin listened to my music she probably wouldn’t have all those cotdamn kids!!!! ;-P #sis #iud #stayinschool #causeitsthebest.’ So, I looked up your lyrics. Which song should I have been listening too? ‘Hood B*tch,’ ‘P-U-S-S-Y,’ ‘Queen of Clubs,’ ‘Grand Scam,’ or ‘Big Talk?’”
