She's Back: Azealia Banks Blasts President Obama Over Baton Rouge Comments

She's Back: Azealia Banks Blasts President Obama Over Baton Rouge Comments

The sharp-tongued femcee breaks her social media hiatus.

Published July 17, 2016

The social media side show that is Azealia Banks is back to stirring the pot. This time, the rapper has come forward to blame President Barack Obama for the violence that has occurred in Baton Rouge since the police killing of Alton Sterling.

Banks tore into the president regarding his comments on the recent police killings, blaming him for not doing enough to fight for the well being of Black Americans. While she is not the first person to voice this sentiment, her comments are among the most scathing we've heard from a public persona — though they do seem to be in line with her modus operandi.

Banks' all-caps rant started with, "NO OBAMA. YOURE WRONG. JUST BECAUSE YOURE AFRAID OF SEEMING TO IN LINE OR IN SUPPORT OF BLACK INTERESTS DOESNT MEAN YOU GET TO KEEP SPITTING IN OUR F***ING FACES LIKE THIS." The femcee continues to say that while he has looked out for the interest of other social and ethnic minorities during his term as president, he has sacrificed the well-being of the Black community.

Her comments are incredibly scathing, but considering Banks' history of lashing out at people for a seemingly countless number of reasons, this latest social media eruption will just be one to add to a long list of similar incidents.
