*Rap enemies Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea unwittingly ended up on the same side of an issue today, as both tweeted criticism toward Beyonce’s new album “Lemonade” – but for very different reasons.
In yet another Twitter tirade, Banks wrote off Bey’s new visual album as nothing but a perpetuation of “that sad black female sufferance.” She called Beyonce a “thief” and a “poacher,” and calls “Lemonade” “the antithesis of what feminism is.”
While Banks feels “Lemonade” is bad for black women, Iggy feels Bey’s use of the word “Becky” is bad for white women.
The Australian rapper shared her opinion on Twitter when one of her followers on Monday referred to her as a Becky. She responded, “Don’t ever call me a becky.”
When a follower called her response racist, she responded, “Generalizing ANY race by calling them one stereotypical name for said race, I personally don’t think is very cool, the end.”
When a follower suggested that she delete the original “Don’t ever call me a becky” tweet because the media will blow it up, Iggy responded, “I don’t care. Don’t call all Asian women ‘Ming Lee’ don’t call white women ‘Becky’ don’t call black women ‘Sha Nay Nay.’”
Another follower responded, “Babe, I love you, but being called Becky hasn’t systematically harmed you or hindered you within society.”
Iggy responded, “The whole becky thing – ‘give me that becky’ – comes from white women’s supposed love for blow jobs.”
She added, “And by the way, this is not bey shade. I love her and the album, but my name is Iggy and you will all call me that.”
Well…not if Twitter has anything to say about it.
