Azealia Banks Fires Back at Kendrick Lamar’s Comments on Ferguson
Azealia Banks has never been one to shy away from expressing her true feelings about things, no matter who is involved. From her very publicized feud with Iggy Azalea, to her Twitter rants, she never backs down when she has something to say. And this time, she's firing away at Kendrick Lamar for his recent comments relating to the tragedy that took place in Ferguson last year.
Kendrick Lamar sat down with Billboard magazine for their Jan. 17 issue, when he was asked to comment on law enforcement issues within the black community. Both the Mike Brown and Eric Garner cases were cited as examples of black men who were killed by police officers. Kendrick responded, saying, "I wish somebody would look in our neighborhood knowing that it's already a situation, mentally, where it's f---ed up."
He went on to say, "What happened to [Michael Brown] should've never happened. Never. But when we don't have respect for ourselves, how do we expect them to respect us? It starts from within. Don't start with just a rally, don't start from looting -- it starts from within."
Azealia, however, completely disagrees with Kendrick's stance and put him on blast via Twitter. You can check out her tweets below. Warning: there is some NSFW language.
Kendrick has not responded to Azealia's comments.
