Iggy Azalea Threatened By Hacking Group Anonymous
Billboard reports that the @TheAnonMessage Twitter account (which is currently suspended), tweeted the ‘Fancy’ rapper on Dec. 19, saying “You are guilty of misappropriating black culture, insulting peaceful protesters, and making light of Eric Garner’s death. @IGGYAZALEA.” (All quotes via Billboard.)
The threats continued, with Anonymous threatening to release proof of an alleged X-rated tape of Iggy unless she “[releases] a statement apologizing to @AzealiaBanks and the protesters in NYC.”
It seems like this is not the only leverage they claim to have on Iggy. In their tweets, the account reportedly mentioned that “this is nothing. Comply or else.”
While Anonymous allegedly tweeted that they “are not in the business of porn,” they promised to release proof that Iggy is in the reported tape if she does not meet their demands. It is unclear if this is the same tape as the one her ex Hefe Wine is trying to sell.
The hacker account reportedly shared details of the tape, tweeting, “The problem is why this tape even exists. It involves a man in a business suit, a kardashian-like attempt at fame, and a record label.”
As of right now, it appears that Iggy is not publicly addressing the threats. She tweeted about her tour on Dec. 20, but has not openly responded to Anonymous’ threats.
