Azealia Banks has quite a relationship with fashion. Her unique look has earned praise from fashionistas, and over the summer, she was anointed the face of Alexander Wang’s T diffusion line. She also had her very own shade of limited edition lipstick from MAC. Now, the outspoken rapper, known for her Twitter tiffs with other artists, has turned her rage to Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana, accusing the designers of racism.

Banks was incensed that D&G used “black mammie” imagery its new line, declaring her commitment to boycotting the brand.

She tweeted: “Whoever designed that racist a– Dolce and Gabanna collection needs a swift kick in the mouth…” She also posted something else that was really vulgar, but we left that part off. But clearly, the collection inspired Banks’ ire.

Fact Mag reports that Banks isn’t just spouting off at the mouth about nothing. The brand’s fashion show reportedly boasted white models wearing burlap dresses, combined with imagery associated with the slave era. The collection was reportedly inspired by the first African settlers in Sicily.

Her tweets are below.
