Iggy Azalea Feud With Azealia Banks Takes Shockingly Nasty Turn

Iggy Azalea

While the world's been focused on the crazy Sony hacking scandal, there's another ugly hack out there on Grammy-nominated rapper Iggy Azalea! The anonymous Twitter handle @TheAnonMessage threatened to release still images from a sex tape that Iggy allegedly made unless she apologizes to rapper Azealia Banks and the protesters of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Say what?

Here's what's gone down so far. The account for @TheAnonMessage has since been suspended, but tweets it managed to send out included:

MESSAGE: @IGGYAZALEA, you have exactly 48 hours from now to release a statement apologizing to @AzealiaBanks and the protesters in NYC...You are guilty of misappropriating black culture, insulting peaceful protesters, and making light of Eric Garner's death. @IGGYAZALEA

AND:

There's an X rated tape of you, we bet you'd certainly don't want public, are we right? @IGGYAZALEA....and this is nothing. Comply or else.

There were several more that also called her a "trashy b****" and claimed they had so much on Iggy that her scandal would be "bigger than Billy Cosby's."

Whoa, so where is this coming from? It started when Azealia went on Hot 97 radio to attack Iggy and her recent Grammy nominations, saying:

I feel like in this country, whenever it comes to our things, like black issues or black politics or black music or whatever, there's always this undercurrent of kinda like a 'f--k you. That Iggy Azalea s--t isn't better than any f--king black girl that's rapping today ... The Grammys are supposed to be accolades of artistic excellence. Iggy Azalea is not excellent.

Iggy did not stay quiet and, over several tweets, hit back at Azealia, saying:

There are many black artists succeeding in all genres. The reason you haven't is because of your piss poor attitude ... Your inability to be responsible for your own mistakes, bullying others, the inability to be humble or have self control. It's YOU!

For the record, Iggy has denied that she has a sex tape and only responded after Azealia's radio interview ... Iggy has smartly not responded to the hackers and their demands. Very good idea for her to not engage in another second of this craziness.

Sadly, Azealia just sounds bitter and jealous and it's gonna leave a bad taste in the mouths of the public if she's going to attack another woman in the industry. Bullying has never won these "wars" in the music industry, and it would be a much better use of her time if she was either supportive OR followed the old adage, "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." And lastly, I hope Azealia had nothing to do with the @TheAnonMessage Twitter account because in this day and age, her career will certainly be over if it ever comes out that she did have anything to do with these hackers!

What do you make of this feud between Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks?
