Azealia Banks is known for bashing and criticizing her fellow female musicians and over the weekend she reverted back to her old ways when she went on Instagram to throw stones at Rihanna. After watching Rih’s Savage x Fenty fashion show on Amazon Prime, the Harlem rep filled her Instagram story feed with fat shaming insults towards the Bajan beauty.
First she tried to clown Rihanna for having “bald a– f—ing edges” and then body shamed her.
“We will have no f—ing fat Black icons on this f—ng side,”she said.
She then went on this incomprehensible rant yelling and screaming about beauty standards in the entertainment industry. Banks also called out Diddy and Jay Z too for being “cultural barometers for Black women’s beauty.” She also posted a video of her hysterically laughing as she claimed that the body positivity movement stems from women gaining weight and not really wanting to embrace their bodies.
Banks erratic behavior and one-sided beefs with other musicians has kept her star from rising, but it looks like she will continue her antics despite how much it has stunted her career. A few weeks back she also fat shamed Lizzo on Instagram and called her a “millenial mammy.”
“I understand the body positivity thing but if it were that the most vulgar bits of it wouldn’t be broadcast like that lmfao…. imagine what the rest of the world thinks when they see lizzo jumping around in leotards with cellulite … no one says body positivity – she looks like she is making a fool of her black self for a white American public. Nothing more nothing less.”
