Azealia Banks Weighs In on Lizzo ‘Booty’ Backlash: She’s a ‘Stupid Fat Black Girl’ #ICYMI

Published: Thursday 12th Dec 2019 by Rashad

It’s been days since Lizzo first turned heads with a risqué, buttocks-baring ensemble donned at the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves game, but the chatter around the jaw-dropping incident shows no sign of slowing.

From talk shows to social media, the debate about the lines between self-expression, fat-shaming, and body positivity rages on – a conversation further impelled by the ‘Truth Hurts’ hitmaker’s recent justification of her wardrobe choice (click here to see it).

Some of the most controversial input has come from Liz’s longtime nemesis, fellow rapstress Azealia Banks.  In a lengthy rant uploaded to her official social media handle, Banks simultaneously praised and slammed the Grammy-nominee for her ‘inappropriate’ attire, suggested the entire event was attention-seeking, and even branded her a ‘stupid fat Black girl.’

The overall message may house elements of truth and surprising astuteness, but the intent – be it well or not – gets lost in Banks’ harsh delivery.  This is especially the case when the analysis includes covert ridicule.  Her weigh ins on issues that impact Black culture, regardless of how well they are conveyed, often end in self-defeat and contradiction because she perpetuates the very ideas she’s combating. Oy vey!

Be that as it may, longtime fans of the ‘Ice Princess’ know this isn’t the first time she’s lent Lizzo a few cold words.  Click here to see what we mean.

    I am convinced that Azealia Banks runs that Clarkson account.

    They’re BOTH stupid attention-seeking black girls. One just happens to be fat and knows how to exploit it.

    This ho can’t f*** herself fast enough. Why is it that she gets to rant freely without worrying about being labeled angry (a classic negative stereotype for black women) but all other girls need to be mindful? Lizzo made it, you didn’t and you will deal

    Begs label to drop her, years later begs them to take her back.
    Pisses off and loses 98% of her fans.
    Actually released that unmixed mixtape that is absolute trash after not releasing anything but singles in the last year or so.
    Doesn’t think before she speaks added with irrational behavior, which in turn has stopped her bag. Targets any artist that is more successful than she is(which is most)!
    Azealia has zero room to call anyone dumb.
    In less than a year Lizzo has made more impact than Azealia has in her entire career! Lizzo did that as a failed attempt to hype a video she was realasing from a successful album. What’s Azealia’s excuse for her stupidity this past decade?
