Azealia Banks Defends Calling Cardi B an ‘Illiterate, Untalented Rat’
Cardi said her piece in a lengthy Instagram post before deleting her account all together and setting her Twitter account to private, declaring "I'm tired of the bullshit .I need to enjoy my pregnancy,family ,new projects and my partner." But Banks, as usual, needed to have the last word and did so in a long statement posted to her Instagram story on Tuesday (May 15).
"Speaking one's mind doesn't equal activism. Everyone is flawed" the lengthy text post began. "I simply see things from MY eyes and MY point of view. When I speak on anything it is purely to open the discussion for people who may or may not be thinking the same things. The concept of me 'attacking' other women is a hard one to process because it's subjective and purely an analysis of what YOU see."
After going full Kanye and describing herself as a "free thinker" she continued: "When I ignite these discussions surrounding black cultural affairs, it's to make sure that the things we are consuming and validating are acceptable and worthy of inclusion into our culture, psyche, and lifestyles."
