I did Wildin’ out today. There were tons of pre-planned colorist jokes and of course .... cry baby cried. Some little scrawny black Atlanta twink was prepared for me. They planned this - hit me on short notice, told me I didn’t have to participate in the coon ass freestyle battles ,(not my style) and I was to sing my song and go home. I show up and some guy who’s darker than me starts calling me ugly and being colorist, then all of a sudden a choir of the most disgustingly basic, local, cattle call “urban” pseudo comedic “FAT BECause You sit in a chair all day” greasy soul food induced south of the mason Dixon ,self hatred. Ass It#backwards, post-Jim crow , post traumatic slave disorder true self esteem less, Ward of the state CLOWNS with their low scale and highly UNimpressive resumes, start going off about how the beautiful Azealia Banks looks! I’ve never felt so much hate and rage for anyone else than I did in that moment. Yemaya was really on stage . Yemaya .....
Banks claims she was ambushed by "tons of pre-planned colorist jokes" after being invited to perform a song. She wrote that the hurtful jokes made her cry.
She also talked about the incident in her Instagram stories, calling out potential hypocrisy from her critics.
"If I were to make fun of Nick Cannon for having lupus and being weak and sickly ... if I made a joke that said he'd be dead by the end of the year ... Then Azealia Banks is the bad guy ... Right?" she wrote.
Nick Cannon posted a screenshot of her Instagram story and captioned it with a vague statement about the situation:
Although Cannon is cryptic about the situation, a person who claims she attended the screening is spilling some tea, and it appears Banks ain't telling the whole truth. According to Facebook user Riesa LB, the cast did some run of the mill roasting and didn't mention her complexion:
According to Riesa, the cast played a game making fun of Banks called "How Petty is She?" One comedian allegedly said, "Azaelia is so petty that she called up Cardi to congratulate her on being a single mother.” Riesa claimed Banks vehemently denied doing this, and no colorist jokes were made.
While it is unclear what happened, it is clear the "212" rapper has canceled her upcoming album Fantasea II.
