Azealia Banks Trolls #BlackTwitter Over Criticism of Kim Kardashian Flaunting Braids

"Why are Black folk so mad..."

Published February 1, 2018

The chaos which ensued after Kim Kardashian took to social media to showcase her new 'do, or "Bo Derek braids," has trickled down into being a hot button issue all week. 

But, if you ask Azealia Banks, the backlash is rather unnecessary at this point. 

According to the Harlemite, the reality star's critics, #BlackTwitter included, simply need to relax ― because it's "just hair."

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday night (Jan. 31), the "212" rapper wrote a lengthy post about the backlash that set social media ablaze. "Why are black folk as mad [at] Kim Kardashian's braids ... I don't get it?" she began. 

"It's just hair...Don't all women wear weaves and wigs and shit nowadays?" she continued. "Save that energy for sh*t that really matters.."

Take a look at Azealia Banks' full remarks, below.
