*”Scream Queens” actress Keke Palmer and rapper Azealia Banks are not here for Teen Vogue after the magazine mixed them up over the weekend by posting a photo of Banks on its website and called her ‘Keke Palmer.’

KeKe posted a screenshot of the photo before she and Banks fired off a series of tweets to Teen Vogue. Azealia told Keke “this is the type of sh*t we have to ignore cause u know its corny white girl shade…”

It’s not surprising that Teen Vogue thinks all dark-skinned women look the same, after all this is the same publication that praised Kylie Jenner’s “dreads,” and considers baby hair a new fad. Kudos to Azealia and Keke for calling them out on the careless nonsense:

Earlier this month, Palmer – who recently starred in “Grease: Live!” – responded to the #OscarSoWhite controversy by sharing an inspiring message about diversity on Instagram:

There has never been an African American in Grease and while I hate that that’s something to be pointed out, it is! My little brother and sister think differently growing up seeing me do something like this! They will not know it to be any other way in their 14yrs of living! That is REAL! “ When @4everBrandy played Cinderella, I was able to believe that I could play her on Broadway! And even if you are not an African American, you will be the first at whatever YOUR dreams are because they are yours.

Meanwhile, the “Broke With Expensive Taste” rapper has hit back at critics of Beyoncé’s “Formation” song and video. Banks took to Twitter to address the miserable white feminists who have criticized Bey for only supporting black women. “No shade I could honestly throw up in a box watching all these white women go in about the damn formation song,” Banks tweeted.
