Azealia Banks Slams Celebrities for Encouraging Fans to Protest Trump's Election

She went ballistic on Facebook.

Published November 11, 2016

Azealia Banks has been making headlines for her comments about Donald Trump's detractors after Tuesday night’s (November 8) election results.

First she mocked Jay Z and Beyonce for their support of the new president-elect, and now she’s targeting other celebrities for their anger toward The Donald.

“I really do wish celebrities would stop feeding their fans anger. That's only going to get them locked up, pepper sprayed and shot at. Everyone really needs to just chilll,” the Harlem rapper wrote in a Facebook post yesterday. “We do NOT need martial law out this b***h. 
That is the last thing we need, because trust me... when your favorite celebrity convinces you to be angry and protest and you get angry enough and go deface some public property and yo a** is in jail, none of them are going to come and bail you out."

“When you lose your job for it, none of them will hire you,” she continued. “Just relax, don't let fear consume you. We haven't even seen what he's going to do yet.”

We’re unsure why Azealia believes celebrities have so much of a pull on their fans. They might help sway beliefs but if someone directly does something illegal because a celebrity tells them to… I don’t know. It's also kind of ironic coming from her.

Anyway, check out Azealia Banks’s full Facebook status about celebrities supposedly causing havoc here.
