Azealia Banks Summoned To 'Handle' Lana Del Rey & Twitter Can't Believe The Hypocrisy

Posted by

Lana Del Rey became a trending Twitter topic on Thursday (May 21) after she named Beyoncé, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Doja Cat, Ariana Grande and Kehlani in an Instagram tirade about double standards in the music industry.

Many were offended she listed so many successful black women to make her point, as if she was somehow discrediting their struggles and accomplishments. As the tweets continued to hit their target, Azealia Banks was suddenly thrust into the middle of it.

In 2018, Del Rey and Banks engaged in a nasty Twitter feud after Banks criticized the Grammy Award-winning singer for comments she made about Kanye West’s 13th Amendment debacle. Del Rey told the often outspoken rapper at the time, “I won’t not fuck you the fuck up. Period,” among other things.

So now, Twitter is calling on Banks to address Del Rey’s latest controversy, but some people can’t believe Banks is being treated as some kind of savior when she’s routinely dragged for her own opinions on the music industry — or anything, really.

Comments on the situation range from calling out the hypocrisy to standing up for Banks. Others simply hope Banks will ignore the entire situation or go off on Del Rey entirely.

Banks has yet to respond. While it remains to be seen whether she even will, check out the reactions below.
