Rihanna and Azealia Banks Feud Over Refugees, Immigration on Instagram
The outspoken rapper voiced her opinion about President Trump's executive order banning citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.
Azealia Banks is butting heads with Rihanna.
The outspoken rapper went on Instagram Sunday morning to voice her opinion about President Donald Trump’s new executive order banning citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.
During her rant, Banks set her sights on Rihanna, calling into question the singer’s immigration status and criticizing her tweets slamming Trump over the executive order.
You don't get to show up in another man's country, kill his young , his wives, ruin his home and think a peace talk Is going to be the end of it. ITS NOT. There's absolutely no way to end this war but to finish it ourselves. It's TERRIBLE, do I agree with it , NO, do I personally like what's happening , NO! But I can say that as an American who enjoys her safety and overall ability to maintain a certain level of ignorance as pertains to the world outside of our borders , I am 100% shook about open borders and would be reallllllllllllly scared for my self and my family if any parts of that war began to become real on this soil. I like my life the way it is. IM JUST A YOUNG FEMALE RAPPER TRYING TO MAKE MY PAY, I personally didn't sign up for any of this extra shit and I refuse to involve myself in matters that don't have anything to do with the African American populace. This is an extension of the crusades , I was in west Africa killing chickens and being primitive while y'all was over there arguing about who the savior is. Please miss me with all of this shit. Pass me a chicken and leave me the fuck alone !
“As far as Rihanna (who isn’t a citizen, and can’t vote) and all the rest of the celebrities who are using their influence to stir the public, you lot really REALLY need to shut up and sit down,” Banks wrote.
She added, “But I can say that as an American who enjoys her safety and overall ability to maintain a certain level of ignorance as pertains to the world outside of our borders, I am 100% shook about open borders and would be reallllllllllllly [sic] scared for my self and my family if any parts of that war began to become real on this soil.”
Rihanna, who recently participated in the pro-women and anti-Trump rallies, subtly replied to Banks’ attack with a kissy face selfie on Instagram. “The face you make when you a immigrant,” she wrote in the caption. The singer also referenced Banks’ alleged sacrificing of live chickens using the hashtags #stayawayfromthechickens, #iheartnuggets and #saveourhens. See the post below.
This is one of Banks' many online feuds, which have involved the likes of T.I., Iggy Azalea and Erykah Badu.
